TUNES BY THE TRACKS is high wide and handsome, for a Wednesday, March 21st arrival at Clifton Springs.
Your hosts, Jim Clare, Cathy McGrath, and Allen Hopkins, are very pleased to welcome back an old friend as Feature:
~ KIT FALLON & Friends ~
Kit Fallon has been part of the regional trad community for over 40 years, primarily as a performing fiddler, mandolinist, for Miller's Wheel, the Wastrels, Heartland Tours with the Dady Bros, and as a side musician with many other bands too fierce to mention.
In her spare thyme, Kit is also a fiddle teacher.
At Tunes by the Tracks she will be sharing Old-Time, Novelty, Celtic, Quebecois, and country swing fiddle tunes accompanied by Jess Youngquest (Miller's Wheel, Los Finsteros...) and other members of the continuing cast.
Kit's roots also go deep into the songs of Ireland, Scotland and Appalachia and she loves to share sing-alongs of familiar and not-so-well-known tunes (anybody out there know “The Toe of Me Mallard,” or “Sam's Gone Away Aboard a Man-o-War?”;). There will be hand-outs to help out with the more peculiar songs.
Heads up Trackers...be prepared to take away some new and fun memories.
~ THE MYSTERY PICKERS ~
Yes, indeedy...audience members have frequently been at a loss for words, after being exposed to the musical magnificence of the bold artists, who step from the comfortable anonymity of the bleachers, into the glaring spotlight of center stage...I tellya Trackers, it's sumthin to behold...
Wanna try it..?? Just axe Cathy, Allen, or Jim (me)...and you too, can join the pantheon of pickers.
