Tonight’s concert features High Brow Hound Dogs. Drawing on the Great American song book to help choose their set list, the band plays a mix of Tin Pan Alley, Jazz standards, and Latin music. The members of this exciting acoustic group are Joel Hanna on guitar and Dobro, Mat Clark on double bass, Rory Cohen on drums and uke, Denise Gealer on electric bass, percussion and uke, and David McCullough on resonator ukulele and guitar. All members of the band share vocal leads lending to a wider variety of songs that they choose to interpret. Inspired by the music of Fats Waller, Duke Ellington, and Antonio Carlos Jobin, HBHD is driven to play this music for the entertainment of a wider audience. Dancing is common occurrence during one of their shows. A good description of what they are doing is called “FUN”.
Opener – Windswept is a musical collaboration by three folk musicians: Chris Adams, Carl Hemenway and Phyllis Purves-Smith. Inspired by Celtic music and modalities, they share original compositions and interpretations of traditional music with guitar, voice and Irish whistle.
