Tuesday morning and my mind’s still buzzing from banjos I heard Sunday–a good thing. Kicked it at the Moon & Sixpence that night, for the last night of Portland’s Old-Time Music Gathering. Fifteen minute sets from local and visiting bands; a similar format to Miz Kitty’s Parlour, but less Miz Kitty since the mic wasn’t too hot. Lots of good fiddlin’ and pickin’ and strummin’ and foot stompin’, though. Lots. And there’s going to be lots more going on here soon enough: Tomorrow night it’s Schicky Gnarowitz and the Transparent Wings of Joy at the Red and Black (klezmer), Thursday the Flat Mountain Girls (old-time) at the Kennedy School, and Sunday Foghorn Stringband (more fiddles) at the Moon & Sixpence. Come out with me?
