DuoFest and other weekend shows

I’m playing a bunch in the next couple days and this weekend:

Tonight (Thursday, January 26th) I’m headed up to Lowell to play with the Goodtime Stringband at Life Alive. We’ll be playing from 6 until 8 pm.

Tomorrow (Friday, January 27th) I’ll be in Lawrence playing with Back to the Roots, the hip hop/riot folk collaboration of Evan Greer and spiritchild. We’re playing as part of the kickoff to the People’s Music Network Winter Gathering, happening this weekend.

Saturday (January 28th) I’ll be playing an informal show at the Pawtucket Wintertime Farmers Market from 10 am til 1 pm with Garlic & Moonshine.

Following that (also on Saturday), I’m excited to be a part of DuoFest, happening from 3 pm until 7 or so at Atwoods in Cambridge. DuoFest is an afternoon of music featuring many duos of the same instrument (so two guitars, two banjos, two cellos, two saxophones…) I’ll be playing with another upright bass player, Tony Leva. We’ve been playing a bunch together to work up a set, and it’s been really fun to play with another upright bassist! We’ll be performing an original arrangement of a North African tune, one of my tunes, and a couple of other bass duets. It’s going to be a lot of fun, and the whole afternoon of music is just $5.

Also stay tuned for some upcoming recording releases–the new Ethan Robbins & Cold Chocolate EP is almost finished, and the debut Spider Cider EP coming together quickly as well!
