Swing/Jazz/Hawaiian/Vaudeville of the 1920s-40s

SPONSOR: JANE JACOBS MUSIC FUND

Crackin' Foxy is a jazz ensemble featuring close vocal harmony and tight instrumental arrangements. The Saranac Lake—based septet is inspired by Traditional New Orleans Jazz but plays with a fresh and joyful energy all its own. Influences include the Boswell Sisters, Anette Hanshaw, and Django Reinhardt as well as Vaudeville and Hawaiian music of the early 20th century. Mark Hofschneider founded the band in 2010 after his wife suggested he play less clawhammer banjo and more ukulele. Other members include Sarah and Jenny Curtis on vocals, Russ Mulvey on bass, Alex Marklund on guitar, Wayne Davison on sax, trumpet, and clarinet, and Jacob Stern on fiddle.

The Arts Center will be transformed into a nightclub atmosphere for this concert, and wine, beer, and other refreshments will be available.

“Best New Sounds.” — Thistle & Shamrock, NPR

SPONSOR: JANE JACOBS MUSIC FUND

Fiddler Gretchen Koehler and jazz pianist Daniel Kelly blend the raw energy of American dance fiddling with the lyricism and improvisation of American jazz. "Masterful," writes Fiddler Magazine of the duo's dynamic sound. Koehler, a champion fiddler and Fiddlers' Hall of Fame inductee, is fluent in over a dozen distinct fiddle styles. Kelly, a U.S. State Department Jazz Ambassador, has brought his depth of knowledge of American jazz to audiences around the world. Together, Koehler & Kelly spark an innovative musical conversation while celebrating their deep respect for folk traditions. Their bold approach has caught the attention of the folk music establishment, and they were featured on an episode of NPR's "The Thistle & Shamrock" showcasing the best new sounds.

Article about Joe

A message from Joe:
“Music should reach you in two ways. The way the music makes you feel should reach your heart, the words attached to the melodies should reach inside your heart.” If you like music that makes you move and words that make you think, join Joe and friends and be part of the experience. You will hear classic rock, blues, Motown, songs from New Orleans and lots of great new music from Joe Nerney and company. Joe is a songwriter, vocalist and multi-instrumentalist. His most recent work was with Seth Glier. “Seth and I have traveled the world together and we’ve enjoyed some wonderful experiences. I would like to express my deep appreciation for the very warm receptions and the many new friends I made while performing with Seth. I’m glad you were there to enjoy our music.”
Joe has co-written two great songs on Seth’s latest album, Birds and People Like Us
“Now, I’m proud to be able to share my heart with you through my music.”. I hope you can be part of the experience with me.”
Joe writes about things everyone has been through. Sometimes, there may not always be answers to the questions he ponders, but at some point, we probably have asked some of the same questions in our lives.
“It isn’t so much about me. I never thought I should be that egocentric and assume that what I had for dinner last week would be amazing to anyone. I like to talk about things we’ve all been through and, of course, things we still go through. We’re all human, we all have similar experiences. Let’s share an evening together.”
Please join us, say hello and be part of a continuing friendship .
