Ukulele at the Castle
After a two month break, Ukulele Noir is once again hitting clubs of New England. This week, on Friday July 25th, The Castle Bar in Brighton, Massachusetts will host the next incarnation of this event. For over three and a half years Ukulele Noir has hosted some of the best ukulele performers and songwriters around, and this one keeps that pot boiling.
Appearing are: Ian Schwartz with his new three piece orchestra. This is his first gig with the back up musicians and it promises to be very interesting. Tim Mann, always an interesting songwriter and great singer, Ed Arnold; a new face to Ukulele Noir with a great voice and style, Tripping Lily; a band of four musicians from the Cape fronted by Demetrius and Monica…great harmonies and great songwriting, as always; another session of Ukulele Consciousness with Robert Wheeler…and, of course, li’l ol’ me, Craig Robertson, acting as ringmaster.
Be there or, well, you know the rest…
