I WANT TO BE THERE !!!
Some of you may remember the Un-birthday party that my daughter and her husband hosted a year ago. It was her 50th but they’d decided to turn it into a fund raiser for Doctors Without Borders. The musical group, Gypsy Jazz Caravan, from NY City helped to make it a magical night and it was such a success that the community and their friends begged for more.
Now, their shop, Bowen Barn, has become an occasional venue for talented musicians and this upcoming event on Oct. 7th, is their latest undertaking.
The two performers who are featured are top notch musicians. Howard Levy is a multiple Grammy-Award winner and master of the diatonic harmonica, a superb pianist and an innovative composer. Equally at home in all aspects of the genre he manages to bring a fresh approach to whatever he plays. Howard has appeared on hundreds of CDs and played on many movie soundtracks.
Joe Craven is a multi-instrumentalist, singer and award winning educator. He plays a variety of string instruments, including fiddle, mandolin, ukulele, balaliaka, and just about anything else he can get his hands on in the percussion field. He is the Director of River Tunes Music Camp and a co-director of the Wintergrass Youth Academy.
These two have paired up before and, by all accounts, they provide an evening that’s hard to beat. If any of you readers live close to Dutchess County, New York, you might want to head down to Bowen Barn in Stanfordville on Oct. 7th.
