- TONY WATT & SOUTHEAST EXPRESSWAY
Taking their name from the primary north-south thoroughfare into downtown Boston, Tony Watt & Southeast Expressway make hard-driving bluegrass music. And as anyone who's ever been on the Southeast Expressway at rush hour would expect... they can definitely jam! Southeast Expressway strives to make modern bluegrass music that is at once both beautiful yet powerful, hip yet traditional.
Although the band was formed nearly a decade ago, the current line-up of Southeast Expressway has been together for less than a year, yet in that time we have been honored to play at the Grey Fox Bluegrass Festival, open for the Seldom Scene at the National Heritage Museum, and perform at one of the most venerable folk clubs in the country: Club Passim located in Harvard Sq., in Cambridge, MA.
Southeast Expressway features some of the area's most-talented pickers and singers, who also happen to be some of my closest friends (bios below):
Ben Pearce on mandolin
Sam Stambler on Dobro
Grace Van't Hof on banjo
featuring Flynn Cohen on bass
and introducing our newest member: Laura Orshaw on fiddle
Known for its tight vocal harmonies and solid traditional bluegrass sound, the Reunion Band features veteran Boston-area musicians Richard Brown (mandolin), Dave Dillon (rhythm guitar), Margaret Gerteis (acoustic bass), Richard Underwood (banjo) and most recently Laura Orshaw (fiddle). The band, which has been around since 2002, takes its name from the fact that its members have played together off and on and in various configurations for over 30 years.
