This is the first of 3 nights (in 4 days) of old time fiddle music at the Nightlight organized by our friend Cece Conway. We're excited to be able to enjoy and learn from so many excellent musicians in 3 stacked shows. This night opens with a round robin of musicians sharing tunes and conversation before moving on to a full performance from ANDREW SMALL and ASHLEE WATKINS with BOB HERRING. schedule below.

7:30-8:45 round robin featuring: JON NEWLIN, PETER WHITE, JOSEPH DECOSIMO, BOB HERRING, CARY MOSKOVITZ, ANDREW SMALL, and ASHLEE WATKINS

8:45-10:30 ANDREW SMALL and ASHLEE WATKINS with BOB HERRING - Presenting a range of traditional dance music from North Carolina and Virginia, mountain ballads, and early country songs, the New Macedon Rangers offer a fresh and compelling take on classic repertoire. The duo, comprised of Ashlee Watkins and Andrew Small, taps into the essence of traditional mountain music while also moving the tradition forward with original songs and instrumentals. Performances feature stirring vocal harmonies accompanied by driving fiddle, mandolin, banjo, and guitars. (maybe two sets)
