Spuyten Duyvil Saturday
Spuyten Duyvil is a New York collective that plays traditional music in a distinctly non-traditional way. Led by songwriting couple Mark Miller and Beth Kaufman, the band is known to really tear it up at live shows. They recently released their 3rd CD, The Social Music Hour Vol 1, a collection of folk and blues tunes that has been described as sounding “like throwing a cherry bomb into a lake ... It wakes you up.” See what that means Saturday night at Cumberland’s Blackstone River Theatre. Details here.
Ham Jam Sunday
