This Sunday, March 22 our final March Grand Opening event will be held with a workshop and a concert.
The Workshop is from 2-4 pm D'Addario. Liz from D'Addario will show us their hands on approach to String Making; each participants gets their own string consultation and a free set of strings! For violin, viola, cello and bass players.
From 4:30-5:30, we welcome Scott Sherman and Kelly O'Dea, Fiddlers for Scottish Fiddling.
Although she is the Juice O' the Barley's fiddler extraordinaire, Kelly also performs music in other genres--and quite well. Website SepiaChord.com described her as the "secret weapon" in the band Tarantella. In addition to Irish and Celtic folk music, Kelly is an accomplished performer on the Hardanger Fiddle (Hardingfele). She has also performed and recorded with Portland-based Strangers Die Every Day and Minneapolis-based Painted Saints. During her career in Denver, Kelly has shared the stage with artists such as Thurston Moore, Jello Biafra, Dick Dale, and The Fray. Scott is a singer/songwriter and a multi-instrumentalist that plays guitar, mandolin, bodhran, and ukulele. He has been playing both private and public events for a few years specializing in mostly americana, bluegrass, folk, rock, celtic and my own original music. In that time, he has shared the stage with the likes of Gipsy Moon, Leftover Salmon, Michael Engberg, and The Owen Kortz Trio. They play in Juice of the Barley which can be heard at: www.reverbnation.com/
