After a long gap for family matters, Marni & Robert are so happy to be getting back in the house concert groove, and we couldn’t be more thrilled with the caliber of our first post-hiatus show! This trio is a breathtaking combination of genius, skill, deep deep heart and delightful playfulness that you really do not want to miss. (Personal note: Marni is super excited to have contra dance heroes playing in her house, including the one who she is privileged to play in Contra Sutra with!)

If you know these guys, you don’t need to watch this to be convinced, but you will want to just because it’s so amazingly beautiful. And if you don’t know them yet, watch it! https://vimeo.com/363415707
Ryan McKasson, Eric McDonald and Jeremiah McLane are masters of tradition who purposefully explore the dark corners floating on its edges. Their individual artistry is enhanced when together. In short, the sum creates a greater whole. The result is an alluring complexity, full of spontaneous musicality. Pulling from parallel strands of influence, they create a swirling level of intensity that traverses darkness, light, and everywhere in between. An air of mystery pervades a sound compelling enough to transcend boundaries and appeal to music lovers of all stripes. Devon Leger of Hearth Music says, “This trio really shows how masterful musicians listen and play off each other.” The music they create is to share, and live performance is the forte. But their mutual attitude stretches beyond the music. They have been good friends ever since they met, and this is present in their live performances, which are full of organic banter and good humor to go along with the music. They create an environment of their own design, drawing in listeners without pretense. Despite living active musical lives thousands of miles apart these musicians have committed to working together to forge a new musical path.
