We’ve been fans of Laurie Lewis for a long time. Because she’s based on the west coast, she was often at Wintergrass, a February bluegrass event held for many years in Tacoma and since moved to Bellevue, Washington. Tim was a regular attender at this event. Laurie Lewis does not often travel to the east coast so we are honored to host her at our house concert series in April. Laurie will be with the Right Hands, and amazing band that will include Hasee Ciaccio on bass (here with Barefoot Movement and then in Dec. 2017 with Winter Jubilee – Music and Memories from the Mountain South), Patrick Sauber on banjo and Brandon Godman on fiddle.
While there are many videos of Laurie that you can find on the internet, the following video has the combination of musicians that will be at our house concert. There are some technical difficulties at the beginning so start the video at 11:15. On a side note, the other band featured on WoodSongs is Nefesh Mountain, a band we recently saw at Folk Alliance International in New Orleans, and we hope to get them here in the fall.
The Honey Dewdrops is our next show, but it sold out. If you’d like to see Laurie Lewis on April 25 please rsvp with Tim at firstname.lastname@example.org
We first saw Freddie & Francine at the 2019 Folk Alliance International Conference in Montreal. While waiting at the gate for our return flight at the close of the event, we each listed our top 10 new bands and Freddie and Francine made both of our lists. Their powerful vocals, Bianca’s quick wit, Lee’s mastery of the guitar – blended with their obvious comfort with the stage make this band not only easy to listen to, but delightful to experience. To RSVP reach out to Tim at email@example.com. Potluck at 6 pm, Music at 7 pm.
Unlike some other venues, there’s a capacity limit to house shows.
Sometimes when people find out there is a waiting list they say “No worries, I don’t need to sit, I’ll just stand in the back”. While we’re appreciative of the flexibility and the dedication to the bands that are playing, this is our home and there simply is a limit to not only how many people can fit in the audience, but also the number of people a house can handle.
Tonight’s show featuring SHEL is sold out.
Thank you for understanding. It’s never too early to RSVP for our upcoming shows.
All one needs to do is a simple internet search on Kristin Andreassen to discover that she is a strong believer in musical collaboration. Videos of Kristin with other performers are plentiful, for example The Stray Birds, Aoife O’donovan, Sarah Jarosz, Chris Eldridge, and Jefferson Hamer
Andreassen, now living in Nashville, toured world stages as a singer and percussive dancer with the renowned stringband Uncle Earl and will be at Chestnut House Concerts on Friday, March 15, 2019 with Dr. Kari Groff. Kari Groff is well-known in NYC and beyond for her warm and genuine approach to young patients, drawing on years of experience as both a respected physician and a raging old time fiddler in the joyful music she creates.
To RSVP contact Tim at firstname.lastname@example.org and mention the number of seats to reserve.
