Sharon Perry – contras Tempest: Chuck Abel – guitar, mandolin; Tim Ball – fiddle; Eric Metzger – drums, percussion
Perry calls contras As You Like It while Tempest plays Measure for Measure. Escape your Hamlet and this long Winter’s Tale and have an early Midsummer Night’s Dream where Love’s Labour’s won’t be Lost. Don’t worry about a partner; perhaps you’ll meet one of Two Gentlemen of Verona or one of the Merry Wives of Windsor. You’ll have your pick of any Timon, Dick or several Henrys but you may find your Romeo or Juliet. If you miss this dance in a Comedy of Errors there will be Much Ado About Nothing. But if you Caesar the opportunity you’ll find that All’s Well That Ends Well.
Steve White – contras Fingerplay: Lisa Bueno – fiddle; Helen White – flute; Jonathan Brandt – piano
White works his white magic with white hot contras as Fingerplay takes us on a white knuckle ride through a white squall of white lightning tunes that are anything but white noise. No need to wait for a white sale; wear your white tie, white gloves or tighty whities and you’ll leave feeling like a white knight.
