Concerts for October, 2014


Friday, October 3rd
Moors & McCumber
with Guest Eric Bannan Opening
8:00 PM @ the Community Arts Cafe, 411 West 4th St., W-S
Cover: $12/$10 F&B/CAC members

James Moors and Kort McCumber hail from Superior, WI and Gold Hill, CO respectively.  Featuring a bigger sound than some duos, they switch off instruments on almost every song playing guitar, mandolin, fiddle, tenor banjo, Irish bouzouki, piano, harmonica, and more.  Their latest release, "Against the Grain," weaves fine storytelling with an infectious melodic mix which reflects many influences: a little blues, bluegrass, a little smoky hills and a dash of Celtic.  Featuring almost all originals, highlights include "Love and War,"  "I Used to Run Around," and "Martyr's Lounge," paying tribute to their musical hero Ellis Paul.  James Killen of the Houston Music Review said, "Moors & McCumber take the musical duo thing back to the days of Simon & Garfunkel and Crosby & Nash.  Their recordings are great..."  This will be their first appearance for Fiddle & Bow and we're looking forward to presenting this fine duo.


Friday, October 10th - Special Extra Show
Cotton Wine
8:00 PM @ the Community Arts Cafe, 411 West 4th St., W-S
Cover: $15/$13 F&B/CAC members 
Cotton Wine is Brandon James and Femke Weidema, based in Nashville.  Their music has been described as Simon & Garfunkel (here they are again) meet Mumford & Sons.  Both are excellent singer/songwriters and vocalists.  They will be backed by Jeremy Spray on drums and A.J. Babcock on bass for a full band sound.  Their music is a mixture of pop, folk, and Americana with a touch of vintage Southern music and packs quite a punch. They were discovered at this past year's Folk Alliance Conference in Kansas City and we've been anxious to get them here since.  They're a little different from the bands we often book but we guarantee YOU WILL LOVE THIS BAND!


 Friday, October 17th 
Joe Craven
8:00 PM @ the Community Arts Cafe, 411 West 4th St., W-S
Cover: $15/$13 F&B/CAC members
Picture a stage that looks more like a yard sale; found objects from the natural environment as well as dumpsters, yard sales, and thrift shops.  Throw in acoustic instruments from around the world - and around the house and you have a Joe Craven show.  Joe is a former educator, museum curator, actor, Director of RiverTunes Music Camp, a co-director of the Wintergrass Youth Academy, and father.  He has performed with Jerry Garcia, Yo-Yo Ma, David Lindley, Jason Marsalis, and for 17 years was percussionist and violinist with mandolinist David Grisman.  The San Francisco Chronicle described his performances as "magical."  He has contributed to several Grammy nominated projects and has performed at the Kennedy Center and Carnegie Hall.  Known as one of the most entertaining performers on the Americana scene, a concert by Joe Craven is rare in this area and not to be missed!
