Info

In honor of Martin Luther King Day, celebrate diversity with a live fiddle and guitar concert featuring works from a variety of cultures.

The Lost Acres String Duo, Gordon Swift (violin) and Paul Howard (guitar), will serve up a rich stew of songs and instrumentals to celebrate the wonderful diversity of American music. The duo honors the long string-band tradition of the nineteenth and twentieth centuries while branching out in new directions, playing across a wide variety of styles and moods. The show might include blues, Gypsy swing, Hispanic dance tunes from New Mexico, a classic by the African-American string band The Mississippi Sheiks, Irish and old-time New England fiddle tunes, a Ray Charles ballad, and a New Orleans-style gumbo rock 'n' roll number by Professor Longhair. The interplay between these two veterans of the Connecticut music scene will heat up the chilliest January day. Not to be missed!
