Sunday January 20, 8pm *Tickets
Andy McLeod (VA) Andy McLeod is an experimental musician and gardener based out of Fredericksburg, VA. His primary instrument is the acoustic guitar, but he incorporates many instruments into his original tunes, improvisations, and interpretations of the works of others. With quite a bit of work under his belt already, including a record on the estimable Dying For Bad Music label, it will be exciting to see him continue to explore, expand, and refine his already heady sound and approach. In his own words, "Mug Hummies" is a combination of acoustic drone music and fingerstyle guitar adaptations of traditional gospel hymns and some early Hawaiian music, with all instrumentation performed and arranged by Andy himself.
Grand Banks (DC/VA) is Davis Salisbury and Tyler Magill. Improvisations on guitar, keyboards, harmonium, and assorted other instruments and objects. 'Grand Banks build a sonic world out of equal parts earth-rattling drones and delicate cosmic lullabies ... feel the space around you sing as far-out harmonics shift in and out of focus.' -- Mike Nigro, Oxtail Recordings
