|June 1: ||Andrea Nettleton – contras|
Grand Picnic: Jody Kruskal Anglo concertina, percussion; Sam Zygmuntowicz fiddle; Bill Peek piano; Marco Brehm bass; Michael Gorin fiddle
If boredom proves nettlesome, Nettleton nets a ton of medal one calls. Hams that they are, Grand Picnic shows their rye humor as they sandwich in tunes as long as we can mustard the strength to ketchup.
|June 15: ||Ron Blechner – contras|
Fingerplay: Jody Kruskal Anglo concertina, percussion; Sam Zygmuntowicz fiddle; Bill Peek piano; Marco Brehm bass; Michael Gorin fiddle
Phenomenon Ron spawns a paragon of higher echelon calls in a forgone contra marathon. Let your fingers play as Fingerplay strings us along, catching tunes in a cats cradle of entwined chords to rope us in and band us together.
