March 2018 Geoff Bartley Open Mic and Slow Boat Home

Tonight!  Monday March 5, 2018
Upstairs 
SLOW BOAT HOME




Slow Boat Home is an Americana band that plays a mixture of jug, country and blues music spanning the first half of the 20th century. All members share lead vocals, accompanied by harmonica, mandolin, bass, and a National ResoPhonic Guitar. Fans of folk and old-time music are likely to hear something familiar and something new from this eclectic and fun-loving group of seasoned musicians.

Michael “Bapu” Smith - Acoustic and National guitar, kazoo
Stephen “Harpo” Born - Harmonica
Scott “Flapjaque” Southgate – Acoustic bass
C. "Bo-Dacious” - Mandolin, Banjo-Mandolin, washboard & percussion
Christine “Honeybird” Pelletier – Female vocals


                               In its role as a neighborhood bar & grille
           and meeting place for multi-ethnic, multi-generation Central Square,
the Cantab Lounge provides stages for many kinds of music and the spoken word.

Pickin’ Party 8pm Feature @ 10pm: True Life Bluegrass
Opening act @ 8:30pm: High Strung Reunion • Downstairs BLUEGRASS Pickin’ Party 8pm http://cantab-lounge.com/public_html/cantab_calendar.html

On the 24th, Friday, • Cantab Upstairs DANCE BAND Perfect Example

True Life and Bluegrass Event Page https://www.facebook.com/events/142291106418765/

True Life Bluegrass has been a mainstay in the Boston-area bluegrass scene for over 30 years, and we are the longest-running band to play at the Cantab Lounge on Tuesday's bluegrass night. Even though we played our first show at the original Joe Val Day in 1985, we have bluegrass roots in the Boston area that pre-date that show by nearly two decades. Steve Watt (banjo and mandolin) has been playing bluegrass in the Boston area since he moved to Cambridge in the mid-60's and was an original board member of the Boston Bluegrass Union, the producer of the Joe Val Festival. Eric Levenson (bass) has been playing in the area for nearly as long, most notably touring the world with Joe Val's band, The New England Bluegrass Boys. Steve and Eric continue to host the weekly bluegrass jam at the Cantab every Tuesday, as they have for over the past 20 years.

True Life Bluegrass consists of:
Ellen Hays - guitar
Eric Levenson - bass
Laura Orshaw - fiddle
Michael Bean - resophonic guitar
Steve Watt - banjo & mandolin
Tony Watt - guitar & mandolin

After a mere 31 years, one of the most venerable bluegrass bands in the Boston area is heading into the studio to record our first project!
