CURTIS & LORETTA
Curtis & Loretta’s music comes straight from the heart. The husband and wife duo’s extraordinary harmonies and proficiency on a parade of stringed instruments create an alluring frame for their poignant original songs, and carefully chosen traditional pieces from the British Isles, America, and beyond. The current menagerie includes Celtic harp, mandocello, mandolin, guitars, clawhammer banjo, and National steel ukulele, plus a bit of kazoo, harmonica, and shakers. Curtis’ down-home sense of humor and Loretta’s theater background engage the audience in an experience that runs the gamut of rolling with laughter to holding back tears, with plenty of side-trips in between. Listen to sound samples;  watch a video. $10 donation. 7:30-9:30pm, Couth Buzzard Books Espresso Buono Cafe, 8310 Greenwood Ave N, Seattle, 436-2960

TOM BERGHAN & JUBA
Music from when America was young. Tom Berghan and Juba perform music from the American Antebellum on period instruments: early banjos and guitars, rib bones, jawbones, and percussion instruments. Tom has studied music from sources published from 1815 to 1875 and performs on actual period and reconstruction instruments. The earliest form of American popular music was a blend from African or indirectly West Indies slaves, plus music from Scots-Irish immigrants and European art music. This music, often referred to as “Juba,” was both rhythmically exciting, and expressed the full gamut of human experience in the new world. Juba was born on the plantations but quickly entered the music halls in American and European cities! This evolved to something the world had never known before … the advent of the ‘professional pop song writers’ such as Stephen Foster, Daniel Emmett, James Bland, and many more! Tom presents a program that is fun, informative, and family friendly too!$10 donation. 7:30-9:30pm, Couth Buzzard Books Espresso Buono Cafe, 8310 Greenwood Ave N, Seattle, 436-2960
