Saturday, May 21 at 6:30: KRISTEN WATTS calling with THE PRIVY TIPPERS

They’re back again. Kristen and the Tippers were last together for our very successful Casa de los Ninos benefit contra. So be prepared to enjoy another great evening with them.

11163239_10153466712959540_2723683403992838561_nprivy tHailing from Tucson, the Privy Tippers are a rock-solid dance band steeped in the Southern string band tradition. Over the past 17 years they kept one foot in the South while they stepped into several other musical traditions, such as French Canadian, New England and music of the Southwestern Borderlands. Jacquie Wohl leads the band with her driving melodic fiddling. Dave Firestine is an exceptional lead and back-up mandolin player who adds a danceable punch to each and every note. On string bass, Jerry Ray Weinert lays the rhythmic foundation for the musical dance of the fiddle and mandolin.

Introductory lesson at 6:30, music begins at 7pm.
