Mason & Weed play at Grizzly Peak Winery Feb 5, 2017


Across the Pond with “Mason & Weed”

Mason & Weed

Mason & Weed at Grizzly Peak

Grizzly Peak Winery events

John Weed (fiddle) and Stuart Mason (guitar, mandolin, banjo) will be performing traditional Celtic and Appalachian, and blues music that digs deep into the roots of bluegrass music. Long before the time of Bill Monroe and Ralph Stanley, and the Carter Family, rural Americans were singing and fiddling the ballads and dance tunes of Britain and Ireland, as well as the sentimental and comedy hits of the wildly popular minstrel shows. These sources provided a well of material that later formed the basis of the Mason & Weed Bluegrass repertoire.

Mason and Weed have been working up a batch of new tunes and songs for a new album project their first recording as a duo. So far, material for the project ranges from early American ballads and songs newly composed by their peers to beautiful melodies with Celtic and Nordic roots. They will remain true to their love of American old timey music and Irish trad while expanding the repertoire with tunes and songs that reflect their life long love of traditional music from all eras and all regions. The audience can expect a few surprises along with some familiar favorites, and maybe even a singalong or a humorous party piece dating back to the minstrel era. Along with brand new pieces, these concerts will showcase material from the new Molly’s revenge album Lift as well as songs from the lively repertoire of Molly’s Revenge, Little Black Train and from Stuarts two solo albums.
For food at the winery: Sultan’s Delight will be on site with food available for purchase from 6pm.
Local musicians Kevin and Daniel Carr will open the show with a set of fiddle tunes!

Date: Sunday, February 5th
Time: 7pm
Tickets: $15 per person – Available at Brown Paper Tickets, or at the door.

Chamber Music Concert: Gabe Young & Jodi French


Chamber Music Recital: Oboist Gabe Young and Pianist Jodi French

Gabe Young and Jodi French

Gabe Young and Jodi French

Special Recital at SOU Music Recital Hall

FRIDAY, DECEMBER 30, 2016 – 7:30PM
Maurice Ravel – Sonatine for Oboe and Piano
Eugene Goossens – Concerto for Oboe, Op. 45
Camille Saint-Saëns – Sonata for Oboe and Piano in D Major, Op. 166
Jules Massenet – Meditation from Thaïs

“Gabe Young is not only a master of his instrument but an artist of taste and discernment. The sound of his oboe is, for lack of a better word, angelic. There were moments, particularly in the Adagio, when the music seemed to transcend even that exquisite oboe sound, emerging instead as pure, disembodied human expression. Young created a breathtaking spell…” Patrick Rucker, The Washington Post
