The House Concert Experience (from the artist’s perspective)

“….people getting together all in the same place, in the same room & hanging out – listening to us traveling minstrels.  Having a shared experience together – getting away from the TV screen and having some community time”  ~ Linsday  of Lindsay Lou & the Flatbellys

Below is a video link of the band from May 17th’s house concert. Join us for more “community time” on Memorial Day, May 27th to hear The Barefoot Movement – potluck at 5:30 pm, show at 7:00.  Email Tim at tlehman9@gmail.com to reserve seats.

Don’t fear the banjo…

When I saw the April Verch Band on Sunday in Harrisburg, I thought I would miss the upright bass when player Cody Walters put it to the side to pick up his banjo for a few songs. Clawhammer banjo is a style of playing, and Cody is perfecting this skill as he adds banjo to April’s fiddle and Hayes Griffin’s guitar. I didn’t miss the bass – the banjo adds a variety of tones and different rhythm to the band’s sound. The show is a perfect blend of music, dance and storytelling.  If you’ve signed up, you’re in for a treat.  If not – we’ll try to book them the next time they pass by.
