Concert: Pairdown / Andy Mcleod / Doug Kallmeyer

Wednesday December 18 * 8pm * $10 * TICKETS

Pairdown is David Leicht and Raymond Morin, a fingerstyle guitar and songwriting duo from Pittsburgh, PA.  Their music reflects a deep well of influences, starting from the early 60s folk and rock scenes on both sides of the Atlantic, through the American Primitive and private press guitar movements of the 70s, to the independent rock era of the 80s to present. They've shared stages with Jack Rose, Ryley Walker, Glenn Jones, Daniel Bachman, and more.

Andy McLeod is an experimental musician and gardener living in Staunton, 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, his latest album 'Mug Hummies' "is a combination of acoustic drone music and fingerstyle guitar adaptations of traditional gospel hymns, original composition and some early Hawaiian music."

Doug Kallmeyer is a DC-based composer, bassist, political activist, and audio engineer. His approach to composition integrates electronic effects with tenor guitar, blending fingerpicking Appalachian modes with extended sonic treatments. In DC, Kallmeyer performs with experimental multimedia groups The Ambient Eye and Free Soil Labor Union and is part of the Verses Records collective.
