Calstock Arts- Jody Kruskal vs Geoff Lakeman – Duelling Concertinas
November 11, 2016 @ 7:00 pm| £8 advance, £9 door, £1 reduction for Friends of Calstock Arts, £6 under 18s.
A unique musical “play-off ” between two masters of the concertina from both sides of the Atlantic. Both are supreme entertainers who play a wide range of material.
Possibly the best anglo concertina player in America, New Yorker Jody plays original compositions, vintage American variety songs, old timey tunes and tales of train wrecks, cow wranglers, mermaids, lovers and losers – ” everything from the ridiculous to the sublime .”
Our very own local – yet internationally recognised – exponent of the rare Crane duet concertina, Geoff is a stalwart of the west country folk and acoustic scene, as well as the patriarch of a folk dynasty (Seth, Sean and Sam Lakeman and their partners Kathryn Roberts and Cara Dillon).
Geoff specialises in west country songs, Americana ( Jimmie Rodgers, Louvin Bros, Randy Newman, Buddy Miller) and 1920s/1930s jazz.
Expect squeezebox fireworks at this one-off international double-bill.
£8 advance, £9 door, £1 reduction for Friends of Calstock Arts, £6 under 18s.
