Paul & Jody present a program of
rarely heard American songs and tunes. Jody Kruskal (Anglo
concertina and vocals) and Paul Friedman (fiddle) have been playing
traditional music for more than 30 years in New York City and
The songs tell American stories that are hilarious, gritty and true — stories of train wrecks and wrecked marriages, death-row convicts and lonesome lovers, heroes, losers, swaggering braggarts, and lazy slackers. Plan on singing along in the chorus. The instrumental fiddle tunes hail from New York to California, from the Southern states on up to Quebec.
We will play one set beginning at 8:00 p.m. After intermission Jennie Litt & David Alpher will perform original cabaret songs.
