    smbkconcerts:

    John McEuen (Nitty Gritty Dirt Band), David Amram, Matt Cartsonis and Andy Goessling at the Towne Crier on Sunday, March 2, 2014.

    Songs were sung and tales were told to an audience modest in size but long on appreciation for the musical artistry of the foursome, which played mostly in the folk/bluegrass tradition with a touch of jazz and beat poetics thrown in. Mr. McEuen played guitar, banjo and mandoline. Mr. Amran played piano, percussion and various flutes and whistles including a chinese gourd flute. Mr. Cartsonis played guitar and provided vocals and Mr. Goessling played soprano sax, mandolin and slide guitar.

    At one point Mr. Amram channeled the spirit of Allen Ginsberg and Jack Kerouac with some adlibbed rhyming to the beat of his snapping fingers. The Kerouac tradition seems to be a thread for Mr. Goessling as well, who plays in Railroad Earth (October in the Railroad Earth, Jack Kerouac), a “newgrass” band that combines folk, bluegrass, rock and roll and jazz influences.

    Homage was paid to Pete Seeger, whose book on playing the five string banjo Mr. McEuen credited with starting him and childhood friend Steve Martin on the banjo and giving him his ticket out of California. Matt Cartsonis also spent some formative years playing with Pete while attending Vassar College.

    It was an evening worth missing the Oscars for!
