Getting ready for the Renaissance Music and Dance Festival next weekend at the Oregon Shakespeare Festival. July 1 & 3 we’ll feature a high energy Morris Dancing Blowout with the Pipe & Bowl Morris. On July 2, the band takes stage, with a concert of Elizabethan Ballads and instrumental flights of fancy, featuring virtuoso Pat O’Scannell with special guests Beltain. See you there!
For more information about all my upcoming events at the Green Show, please visit my website. suecarney.com I’ll be blogging about my productions as we build them.
I was down on the bricks at OSF, and Ben Cobb introduced me to Adam Matta (of the Carolina Chocolate Drops), who was performing at the Green Show the next day. We hit it off right away, since we’re both into odd electronic instruments, Theremins, Squarepusher and Aphex Twin. But things got really interesting when Adam found out I was into early instruments. He immediately (and quite generously) invited me to join him onstage for an impromptu set combining his beats with my archaic axes! Since then, our collaboration has grown into something quite wonderful, Adam came out for a week last August to join me in my show, Shakespeare Evolution IV. Can’t wait to see what happens next.
