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 firstname.lastname@example.org. Potluck at 6 pm, Music at 7 pm.
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.

“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

“This type of music would be comfortable at the Grand Ole Opry, Austin City Limits and they wouldn’t get kicked off that old fogey classic Lawrence Welk Show either. It’s that’s diversified, satisfying and most importantly, good. “
