New Boys of Old New York concert
Red-hot strings ignite an old Long Island fiddle tune; oversized mandolins weave together on a rare Irish song from the Adirondacks; spoons and hambone bring Western NY dance tunes leaping back to life; two lone voices belt out a Catskill lumbercamp song in haunting unison.
Jeff Davis and Dave Ruch present New York State traditional music with a unique flair as The New Boys of Old New York. Davis is well-known for his authoritative interpretation of American traditional music ("worth a lot of salt" SingOut!), and Ruch for his deep research and great sense of fun on stage ("Mighty. The audience loved it" Mick Moloney).
Together "The New Boys" delight in exploring the unusual and under appreciated. With a pile of fascinating stories and two carriage-loads of instruments, the music of New York's canallers, Great Lakes sailors, African-American fiddlers, Irish lumberjacks, and hill-country homemakers is in great new hands. At Saint John's Lutheran Church, 81 Christopher Street, NYC 10014; Subway: Christopher Street on the #1, West 4th Street on others. Suggested donation: $22, members $18.
