July 12th Syncopaths online concert

syncopaths_porch_stepsPlease join us at 4 pm on Sunday, July 12th, for our first online concert, featuring the Syncopaths! From dance floors to concert halls, the Syncopaths bring a fresh, contemporary spin to music and songs rooted in the Scottish, Irish, and American folk traditions. At the heart of the band’s sound are the twin engines of Ryan McKasson’s dynamic, Scottish-based fiddling and the amazing picking of mandolinist Ashley Hoyer (formerly Broder). Jeff Spero provides inventive piano accompaniment, anchored by the driving power of Christa Burch’s bodhrán. Christa also lends her singular voice — warm, supple, expressive, and intimate — to the band’s songs. Together, they create a “chamber folk” sound, characterized by compelling, rhythmic mandolin, rich vocals, and unexpected colors and rhythms from the piano and bodhrán. The exuberant joy they derive from the music and each other is palpable and contagious.

Please share this information with anyone you know who might be interested. The link to join the concert will be added to this post on the morning of July 12th, and it will also be distributed to our email list the week before the event.
