All Strings Considered and The Knockabouts will be playing at the Black Box Theater on NMU’s campus on April 9, at 7:00 pm. The suggested donation is $5.
All Strings Considered has a primary focus on traditional old-time instrumental and vocal music of the Appalachian region with a bit of Celtic and Scandinavian tossed into the mix from time to time. The group’s sound is a blend of Jamie Kitchel on fiddle, Rochelle Schuster on hammered dulcimer, Phil Watts on guitar, Annette Watts on autoharp, and Maggie Morgan on bass. All Strings Considered will get your feet tapping to those great traditional fiddle tunes then soothe your day with a gentle waltz or tell a story with an Appalachian song.
The Knockabouts is a Marquette folk group specializing in traditional music from Ireland, Scotland, England, and Canada. Members include Tim Clancy (flute and accordion), Tim DeMarte (bodhran, guitar, and vocals), Barb Rhyneer (fiddle) and Dan Truckey (guitar and vocals).
