All March and April 2020 house concerts have been cancelled. In 8 years we’ve never had to cancel a show; these are extreme times and we want our audience and guest artists to be of good health. We fully recognize that during this time it’s the artists who will be impacted the most by these cancellations and if you’re still able to work during this time, we encourage you to send the donation (or more!) directly to the musicians whose show you planned to attend.
The Honey Dewdrops plan to have a virtual show very soon; as soon as we have the link we will share with you. If you would like information on how to send $ to I Draw Slow or the Laurie Lewis & the Right Hands (our April shows), please email Tim at firstname.lastname@example.org and we will gladly assist.
“The Mammals are Ruth Ungar, Mike Merenda, and a cohort of compelling collaborators who form a touring quintet on the fiddle, banjo, guitar, organ, bass, and drums. Identifying as “subversive acoustic traditionalists” or a “party band with a conscience,” The Mammals re-emerged from a hibernation period during-which the band’s founders explored new songwriting terrain. “The Mammals don’t suffer from multiple genre syndrome, they celebrate it as if gleefully aware that the sound barriers separating old-timey music, vintage pop and contemporary folk are as permeable as cotton.” – Washington Post
