Bog standard performance of rock solid standards of the Auvergnat set. I play these with Le Bon Truc. My approach is essentially pretending I’m playing a one row. Going for the primitive.
Some great photos taken by daughter Brigid of our Mayo Street gig in Portland. Blue light. Who knew? Le Bon Truc is Gary Chapin, Barbara Truex, and Steve Gruverman

|We love each other.|
On Sunday, November 6 at Mayo Street Arts, in Portland, Maine, my trio will be playing for an extended French extravaganza. Beginning at 4:00 pm, we will play for a dance workshop, led by the fabulous Marie Wendt. At 7:00 pm we’ll play an hour long concert. Them at 8:15, we’ll continue the dancing with a proper French Bal Folk! Join us!
