Time to give back to the community and highlight some of the incredible home-grown talent in and around Arlington!

For this show, Foggy Mountain Consort (Lauck Benson, Peter Lehman, Anne Goodwin, Art Schatz, Doug Freundlich) take over our stage. You may recognize some of your friends or neighbors, and you'll certainly recognize entertaining, eclectic music, brilliantly played. Local father-son duo Chris & Quinn Eastburn open.

Foggy Mountain Consort are a group dedicated to performing music from a wide historical range. Starting with plucked string music and songs from as early as 1600. While this music is very old, it still rings contemporary when approached in the right manner. We mix old instruments with newer ones, old styles with a fresh approach, and mostly have a great time making music together. We try to play with all our heart and soul, have no fear, and enjoy the collaboration.

We also pull from the vast repertoire of «collected» ballads from the British Isles. Collected by Francis James Child in the late nineteenth century, these and other tunes, sometime familiar, always haunting and heartfelt, offer a deep hunting ground for the Foggy Mountain Consort. With true origins unknown, ballads and old tunes might easily stretch back to the middle ages.

Then of course there's bluegrass and traditional North American music. The Foggy Mountain Consort does get around to playing old style bluegrass, but in its own eclectic way. And there's much more from this unusual band. Early music, long forgotten songs, romping bluegrass, and new music inspired by old styles. Rich textures from the lute, banjo, violone (Renaissance double bass), violin, guitar, and voices. We like to say, Old is new, new is old.
