Thirteen Feet of Bluegrass with opener Heather Pierson
Caffe Lena Saratoga Springs, NY
Share this event:
Four lanky guys play high-energy, acoustic '70s and '80s country rock, blues, bluegrass and originals--Thirteen Feet style! These seasoned musicians offer powerful vocals, dynamic instrumentation and a great repertoire. Pat Liddy, a 40 year music veteran whose powerful voice and fine guitar work are band hallmarks; Bob Altschuler, "a distinctive banjo stylist whose playing is notable for expressiveness and imagination," (Banjo Newsletter) on banjo, Dobro and electric banjo; Randy Jennings, a 30-year bluegrass, jazz, Dixieland, rock and folk veteran on bass and vocals; and Nick Viscio whose high energy fiddling and vocals, with hot solos and fine improvisation, are inspired by swing, French Canadian and bluegrass.
Opener Heather Pierson is a winner of the New England songwriting contest who is as comfortable and adept with bluegrass as she is with jazz. She uses piano, guitar and even melodica to accompany her rich, soulful vocals.
