UUCB Concerts for a Cause: Dirty Cello Duo
The Dirty Cello Duo will bring their high-energy fusion of blues, rock and bluegrass to the Unitarian Universalist Church of Brunswick on April 4th at 7:30 pm as part of the Concerts for a Cause series to raise money for local charities.
From China to Iceland, Dirty Cello brings the world a high energy and unique spin on blues and bluegrass. Led by vivacious cross-over cellist, Rebecca Roudman, Dirty Cello is cello like youve never heard before. From down home blues with a wailing cello to virtuosic stompin bluegrass, Dirty Cello is a band that gets your heart thumping and your toes tapping!
Rebecca Roudman is a classical string player by day, and rocks out with Dirty Cello by night and has used her improvisation skills to rock out with the likes of Carlos Santana, Isaac Hayes and hip hop bands like Deltron 3030. Rebecca will be joined on stage by guitarist, Jason Eckl.
When lead guitar is replaced by the sound of hot licks on a cello, blues, rock and bluegrass rise to a new dimension. Dirty Cello from San Francisco, CA makes its style of string music to inspire audiences to swing, sway and dance. Nick Diamantides, Ashland Daily Tidings.
"Dirty Cellos music is all over the map: funky, carnival, romantic, sexy, tangled, electric, fiercely rhythmic, and textured, and only occasionally classical." Lou Fancher, Oakland Magazine.
"The band plays every style imaginable, and does some fantastic covers. (Their rendition of Purple Haze is incredible.) But what is most spectacular about them is hearing the depth of soul in Roudmans playingit goes beyond what most people would expect from the instrument. She plays it with so much heart, youll wonder why more bands dont have a cellist." Good Times Santa Cruz
Tickets are $15 in advance, $18 at the door, Students/Children: $5. Available are also available at the church office and Gulf of Maine Books.
Two-thirds of the proceeds from this concert will benefit TEDFORD HOUSING (providing housing and services for the homeless) and OASIS FREE CLINICS (providing free medical and dental services for those who are uninsured and can't afford insurance)
