New World String Project
98 strings. Mostly true stories.
Four highly skilled and well known multi-instrumentalists – Stuart Mason, Lisa Lynne, Aryeh Frankfurter, and John Weed – have joined forces to create an exciting weave of music rooted in the Celtic, Nordic and American folk traditions. Ancient and modern sounds mingle freely on Swedish nyckelharpa, Celtic harp, fiddle, guitar, cittern, mandola and more. Join the New World String Project for a musical ride that will shake your boots, uplift your spirit, and warm your heart. This will be their second SLO House Concerts appearance–the last time they sold out so fast that we added a second show this time. (Photo credit: Ryan Davidson) newworldstringproject.com

Compton & Newberry
A return to the roots of bluegrass
Both masters of the bedrock instruments of old-time music, Compton & Newberry collaborate with a vision that is both modern and ageless. As virtuosos of old-time mandolin, banjo, and guitar, they dig deep into early country music and blues with a seemingly limitless library of brother duets. Audiences can expect to hear their favorite tunes along with traditional instrumentals, mother ballads and award-reaping originals. And, Mike Compton and Joe Newberry are just plain FUN! We are honored to have them back–don’t miss this one! (photo credit: David Bragger) comptonandnewberry.com www.youtube.com/watch?v=FVwOYKz2ZYY
