Saturday November 25 ~ Acoustic Evening with Mollie and Sparky & Oliver The Crow ~

8:00 pm, A relatively new duo of musical friends Mollie Kidari and Sparky Robinson opens our Saturday night. They have been playing together for years in various groups and incarnations, and are now a duo! They will be doing original, eclectic music on piano and guitar. 

9:15 pm, Nashville-based duo, Oliver The Crow. Kaitlyn Raitz (cello, vocals) and Ben Plotnick (fiddle, vocals) have been making folk music for the majority of their lives. Though they’ve only started playing music together recently, they have a combined musical resume that speaks to a lifetime of dedication to folk music. Individually, they’ve made their respective marks playing with countless artists across North America. From jazz, to country, to classical, and everywhere in between, they’ve appeared on dozens upon dozens of professional albums. They’ve played in bars for 10 people, or at festivals for 40,000.

The relationship between the violin and the cello is age-old and has been proven time and time again, but as soon as Kaitlyn and Ben began to play and sing together, it became clear that something was different. Decades of experience as chamber musicians helped them to blend instantly, but it’s their spontaneous, energetic yet subtle approach to folk music that sets them apart.

"An inspired collaboration... They've developed an egalitarian dynamic in which they use an array of techniques ... to maintain a seamless groove and accentuate each other's parts." - NPR

Admission tonight is $8.  Doors open at 7:20 pm.
