House Concert, 8/3/16

Cathy Barton & Dave Para
House Concert on Wednesday, 8/3/16

7:30 to 10 p.m.
1018 Idlewilde SE
Albuquerque, NM

NM FolkMADS is proud to co-sponsor a house concert featuring Cathy Barton and Dave Para, and the string band Snor T Horse, all from Missouri. Cathy (banjo and hammer dulcimer) and Dave (guitar) have played old and new time folk music for 40 years and are passing through Albuquerque on their way to the Red River Dulcimer Festival (www.nmdulcfest.com/) where they will be the featured performers. Cathy & Dave are great instrumentalists and fabulous singers as well as wonderful raconteurs. They were last here for the 2015 NM Folk Festival and were among the festival favorites.

Snor T Horse is one of those funny-while-late-night-driving names for a band comprised of Mike Fraser (mandolin & fiddle) and Tenley Hansen (guitar & piano) as well as Cathy and Dave. Together they will provide an evening of old and new fiddle tunes and songs from a diverse repertoire seldom heard in NM.

Reservations aren’t required but seating is limited so it’d be a good idea to call & reserve a seat.
Call: Bruce Thomson (505-264-1049)
