Guitars Without Borders at Freight and Salvage, June 13

Image

Sparks will fly when these three masters of the flatpick combine forces! Scott Nygaard, Jody Stecher and Eric Thompson have collaborated in various combinations (most recently as part of Kleptograss) but this will mark their first performance as a trio. Guitars will be front and center, but they may play other instruments too — mandolin, fiddle, banjo, maybe some cuatro — and Jody’s soaring vocals will be part of the mix as well. The repertoire could come from almost anywhere including the fertile imaginations of Jody, Eric and Scott – these virtuoso pickers started with bluegrass and old-time music, but they have also delved into jazz and swing, Irish and Scottish, Cajun, blues, Puerto Rican etc. etc. Scott, Jody and Eric have worked with too many notable musicians to list here, but some of them are: Peter Rowan, David Grisman, Chris Thile, Joan Baez, Mike Seeger, Tim O’Brien, David Nelson, Jerry Garcia, Maria Muldaur, Laurie Lewis…you get the picture.

    Glad you enjoyed it. We had a great time — as you probably could tell. A recording is definitely worth considering. Thanks for the encouragement.

    Great concert on June 13 at The Freight with you, Jody Stecher, Eric Thompson. Please bring out an album with the three of you playing!
