The Bridies - "Mám Éan Polkas"
Tim Kliphuis - "Tony's Tune"
Sharon Crumrine (w. Betty Widerski) - "Pericopine"
Hello everybody! Here's what's on board for this week:
Hollis Taylor has created a fascinating body of work called Infidel comprised of traditional hoedowns and Texas fiddle tunes. She and collaborator Jon Rose take these traditional pieces and put them in VERY non-traditional environments. A fascinating study!
The Bridies are also in the business of making a new take on traditional music. With traditional Irish fiddle stylings, The Bridies explore blues, bebop, swing, and a host of other styles. Flamboyant and energetic, these ladies are a lot of fun
Tim Kliphaus is a Dutch violinist who explores all manner of jazz. His latest disc Swingin' the Classics finds him and his band taking many famous classical movements and adapting them into swing. The piece featured here is the 2nd movement of Mozart's Clarinet Concerto
Violinist Betty Widerski is a guest artist on this tune by pianist Sharon Crumrine. She is a freelance session player in the Boston area and has played with numerous bands and artists there. She is an accomplished classical violinist who also explores improv, rock, jazz. She's all over.
Thanks for listening - take care everybody!Mark Allender, producer-host
