The Matt Flinner Trio & Harmonious Wail

Saturday November 8th

Doors open at 7:30, music at 8:00

Joel plays (and some would say is obsessed with) the mandolin. We are hosting an afternoon of workshops and an evening concert featuring two great mandolin-centered bands. Click here for more info on the workshops.

 

The Matt Flinner Trio


“Flinner continues his reign as perhaps the most exciting and creative mandolin player on the scene today.” -Jazz Times

 

The Matt Flinner Trio has fun straddling the lines between jazz, bluegrass and classical musics. Their instrumental music is catchy and beautiful. Matt Flinner, the Trio's leader, is a Winfield Mandolin Championship winner (a huge honor) and a member of the grammy-nominated Modern Mandolin Quartet. Here's a video.

Harmonious Wail


“You’ll be smiling from the moment Harmonious Wail starts to play… As a matter of fact, if they don't set your toe to tapping and a smile on your face, you should probably get medication.” - Folk and Acoustic Music Exchange

Harmonious Wail is a gypsy swing trio that is never afraid to bring new things to the genre created by Django Reinhardt. Joel has been a fan for 15 years (thanks, Mom!). It was founded by mandolinist Sims Delaney-Potthoff, a nimble fingered protégé of the legendary Jethro Burns. The trio also features a truly killer jazz vocalist, Sim's wife Maggie Delaney-Potthoff. Enjoy their take on "My Favorite Things".
