The Foghorn Trio

OLD-TIME AMERICAN MUSIC Thursday 14th May @ 8.00pm

Caleb Klauder and Stephen Sammy Lind began playing music together in 2000 in Portland, Oregon. Switching between guitar, mandolin, fiddle, banjo and vocals, they have performed traditional American old-time music all over the globe with their critically acclaimed band The Foghorn Stringband, and other projects with the likes of Riley Baugus, Dirk Powell and Kevin Burke. Their style encompasses early country music, the fiddle repertoire of the Southern Appalachians and the Midwest, and the stringband sounds of the Piedmont region. Their vocals are simple and honest, with intertwining harmonies similar to the Carter Family and the Stanley Brothers. Although their repertoire is mainly traditional, Caleb\'s stellar original songs and tunes fit right in next to any classic. Special guest Nadine Landry of Canadian Bluegrass outfit Hungry Hill will be joining the lads on upright bass for this tour. A night of great music with great heart: prepare to be enchanted.
