The past few weeks, people walk in and say, “Are you having a show tonight?” And we look out the front door, at the glistening sun, and say, “no, we don’t have shows in the winter because of the weather. Too cold and rainy.”
The dichotomy is stark.
Well, we’re putting aside those rules tonight as the Bee Eaters perform indoors here at the Library. They’re a brilliant trio, featuring 6-time Grant National fiddle Champions Tristian and Tashina Clarridge, and are being joined by hammer dulcimer wizard Simon Chrisman.
They played here last night and it was awesome. Not your typical “bluegrass.” If I’m not mistaken, they covered the Beatles’ “You Won’t See Me.”
But don’t take our word for it:
“…chamber music’s finely calibrated arrangements with bluegrass’s playful virtuosity and pop music’s melodic resourcefulness,” sayeth the Boston Globe.
