Event

Wesley Corbett & Simon Chrisman + Lydia Ramsey
Doors 730 Show 8 All Ages

Both Wesley Corbett and Simon Chrisman grew up on Bainbridge Island, Washington, and cut their musical teeth playing together and in spite of that, have rarely gotten to play concerts as a duo.  That they are about to do so is something they're pretty darn excited about.  Nowadays, they spend their lives traveling and playing music, both as sidemen and with their own bands.  This concert will be an opportunity for these old friends to reconnect with, and share, their roots and to see what new branches that tree has grown.  Their first duo recording will be available spring 2018.

A native of the Pacific Northwest, Wesley Corbett has been playing the banjo since he was 16, after a split from the classical piano.  He has performed with many of the most influential acoustic musicians of our time, including Mike Marshall, Darol Anger, Bruce Molsky, Sarah Jarosz, and Laurie Lewis (among many others), as well as touring internationally with the Indie-Popgrass band Joy Kills Sorrow.  From 2011-2015 Wes was the professor of banjo at Berklee school of music in Boston MA.  

Hammer dulcimer virtuoso Simon Chrisman brings an unusual style to an instrument that has previously been thought to have limited range and technique his inventive virtuosic touch and sophisticated rhythmic sensibilities are redefining the instrument and earning the attention of musicians from all over the world.  He tours with the Jeremy Kittel Band and the Bee Eaters and has performed with Darol Anger, Bruce Molsky, Mike Marshall, Laurie Lewis and Seamus Egan.

Seattle's Lydia Ramsey is a singer, songwriter and multi-instrumentalist, praised for the almost vintage quality of her voice. Her songs convey both the wildness and free nature of traditional folk music and feature melodic fingerpicked-guitar backing up her beautiful voice.  Lydia is also a member of the band St Paul de Vence alongside Bainbridge Island's, Benjamin Doerr.

Premiering on NPR's First Watch, her first single, "Ghosts", is a wonderfully southern-inspired folk tune that showcases Lydia's natural fingerpicking guitar ability, her banjo playing and her lovely vocal harmonies.   Her songs Show Me The Stars and Shake Me from Bandita were featured as KEXP's Song of the Day and Music That Matters.

Lydia has recently returned from her first international tour in the U.K. where she received praise from the UK Americana Music Association describing her music as an enticing combination of folk and country that sparkles as modern Americana.
