Gigs for May and June 2006

Foghorn StringBand
Friday May 12th at 9.00, Venue: Rose’s
The Foghorn Stringband is one of the greatest new things in old-time music. All they have to do is play, and the power surges straight through your own chest. They are supertight, are major monster players, and they don't do anything weird to the music, they let their own musicality and the tunes speak for themselves.

Geoff Muldaur
Saturday May 27th at 9.00, Venue: Rose’s
Geoff Muldaur is one of the great voices and musical forces to emerge from the folk, blues and folk-rock scenes centered in Cambridge, MA and Woodstock, NY. During the 1960's and '70's, Geoff made a series of highly influential recordings as a founding member of the Jim Kweskin Jug Band and the Paul Butterfield's Better Days group, as well as collaborations with then-wife Maria and other notables (Bonnie Raitt, Eric Von Schmidt, Jerry Garcia, etc.).

Nigel Mooney
Saturday June 10th at 9.00, Venue: Rose’s
Trying to find a home for Nigel Mooney's rich, luscious guitar licks and expressive vocals has always been a task that Mooney himself has claimed to be 'beyond his remit'. For arguments sake, we take jazz and blues, we bandy about the words guitarist, vocalist and bandleader. We settle on Nigel Mooney Irish jazz and blues man. Nigel Mooney, Guitar and Vocals; Greg Felton, Piano; Rory O'Donovan, Bass; Shane O'Donovan, Drums.

Jeff Lang
Sunday June 18th at 7.00, Venue: Rose's
Yes, it is true, he is playing for the IMMRAMA weekend, at the earlier time of 7.00. John has been in touch and arranged it all. Spend the afternoon in the park listening to the wonderful Loudest Whisper and then drift over to Rose's for a great session of guitar and vocals.
