The 2012-2013 Cabin Fever concert season schedule is coming together… It’s starting to look like a proper winter! So far, this is what we are looking forward to:

November 28, 2012~ Jayme Stone and Grant Gordy(Doors open at 6:30pm, concert starts at 7pm, and admission is $10. Space is limited, so it is always a good idea to email in advance kortmccumber(at)gmail.com to reserve your seats!) Two-time Juno-winning banjoist Jayme Stone makes music inspired by folk traditions from around the world. Stone thrives on unexpected inspiration: Japanese poetry, Brazilian literature, instruments he found while traveling in remote Malian villages. He finds it with influences as diverse as Anouar Brahem, Bill Frisell, and Toumani Diabaté. His Juno Award-winning albums, most notably Africa to Appalachia, both defy and honor the banjo’s long role in the world’s music, turning historical connections into compelling music. And to call what Denver-based guitarist Grant Gordy does with the music he loves, the music his dad turned him on to, the music by the artists who would become his heroes and colleagues – to call it listening would be inaccurate. He hasn’t been just listening to it; he absorbs it, digests and dissects it, explores it to the very edge, feels it, knows it.

 December 19, 2012~ Mollie O’Brien and Rich Moore (Doors open at 6:30pm, concert starts at 7pm, and admission is $15. Space is limited, so it is always a good idea to email in advance kortmccumber(at)gmail.com to reserve your seats!) Mollie O’Brien has been called one of roots music’s best interpreters and singers, and her voice described as “smooth,” “smoky,” “powerful,” and “bright and bold as sheet lightning.” Once you’ve heard it, you’re hooked. “Mollie O’Brien and Rich Moore are two national musical treasures. Combining blues and bluegrass (and everything in-between) with their soulful voices and stunning instrumental chops, Mollie and Rich are a constant source of joy and inspiration to me. They are truly among the best out there keeping American music alive and vital.” – Dave Alvin

January 9, 2013~ Jim Gilmour and Friends   (Doors open at 6:30pm, concert starts at 7pm, and admission is $10. Space is limited, so it is always a good idea to email in advance kortmccumber(at)gmail.com to reserve your seats!) A Vermont resident, Jim began writing songs in earnest in 1998 after many years of music industry experience supporting other artists. His lyrics – sometimes veiled, sometimes chillingly frank – are composed from the everyday subjects of life. “He sounds like a cross between Peter Mulvey and David Crosby. Having been a bass player for most of his life, his guitar playing is heavily in the groove.” ~David R. Miller

February 6th, 2013~ David Tiller and Enion Pelta-Tillerof Taarka (Doors open at 6:30pm, concert starts at 7pm, and admission is $10. Space is limited, so it is always a good idea to email in advance kortmccumber(at)gmail.com to reserve your seats!) Taarka is a Lyons, Colorado-based musical group, originally formed in Portland, Oregon in 2001 by the husband/wife team of David Tiller  (mandolin, tenor guitar, vocals)and Enion Pelta-Tiller (five-string violin, vocals). Described by SF Weekly as a “collision of Django Reinhardt and David Grisman.” 

March  13, 2013~ Bruce Hayes (Doors open at 6:30pm, concert starts at 7pm, and admission is $10. Space is limited, so it is always a good idea to email in advance kortmccumber(at)gmail.com to reserve your seats!) Bruce Hayes plays Rhythm & Celtgrass music, a fusion of musical styles that combines acoustic and electric instrumentation with elements of Rock, Bluegrass, Celtic, and R&B music. Collaborating with The String Cheese Incident and Acoustic Junction, Hayes helped define the acoustic jam band sound. He continues this tradition performing original songs and arrangements on Mandolin, Guitar, Dobro, foot board and his latest creation, the Stratobassto.

April 3, 2013~ Some Train Yard (Doors open at 6:30pm, concert starts at 7pm, and admission is $10. Space is limited, so it is always a good idea to email in advance kortmccumber(at)gmail.com to reserve your seats!) Acoustic Roots. The organic sound of Some Train Yard is rooted in yesterday, reaching for tomorrow. The band was formed through a shared appreciation for the origins of acoustic American music. Tim-tested covers from the early days of country, blues, bluegrass & folk,mixed with a fresh batch of home-made songs that hearken back to times gone by, produces an ear pleasing blend of old and new.
