Hoot Time

If you're fans of that wonderful local group, " Cafe Musique," or have ever attended a concert by that amazingly ecclectic group, "Vagabond Opera," there's another group -- Fishtank Ensemble -- coming to the Coalesce Bookstore in Morro Bay on Friday, Feb 26, 7 p.m. and also at the Castoro Cellars in Templeton., Saturday Feb 27 at 7:30 pm. Tickets are $20 and available from SLOFOLKS (as is more information about the group) or from the book store itself. (Cash only for tickets bought at the store.). SLOFOLKS website is for further information. (Slofolks is a great outfit that brings amazing musicians to the central coast. Sign up on their website to get notices of upcoming events.)

From this week's Bay News: "Fishtank Ensemble is world music like you've never heard before. Electrifying stage show combining opera scat, jazz, gypsy, and Flamenco violins. The brainchild of no one, Fishtank is the serendipitous reunion of six gifted and misfit muscians. " Who play violin, musical saw, banjoele, percussion, upright bass, guitar and baglaman.

Baglaman? Woa, who would want to miss that??

On the SLOFOLKS website is a link to a UTUBE performance clip. Yes, a hoot!!! Like our own Red Barn series, SLOFOLKS is an amazing outfit bringing really great live music to our neck of the woods. I would encourage all my readers to check out their programs.

This one has poorer sound quality at high volume but the Woah! From the audience at the end is well earned.
