The Creaking Tree String Quartet - Ottawa!


Recommended Posts

I just got back from checking out The Creaking Tree String Quartet at Cosmic Charlie's in Peterborough -- WOW! These four guys (mandolin, stand-up bass, acoustic guitar, violin) are amazing!!

They're playing in Ottawa the next two nights (Saturday and Sunday) and I highly recommend checking them out.

5/3/03 - Rasputin's

5/4/02 - Bayou

Go for it!! Spacey, intricate and beautiful bluegrass style music. Besides their impressive original tunes, they covered the likes of Bill Frisell, Bill Evans, and Bill Monroe (maybe a few others as well). I believe the mandolin player is in Crazy Strings. Bouche and Ms. Hux, this is the band that was playing at that anti-war festival at Nathan Phillips Square when we ran into each other a few weeks ago!


ps - these guys belong at Frontier Town.

It looks like they're coming back to the Ottawa area.

The Black Sheep Inn in Wakefield, Quebec is putting on (what it calls) "a jam band festival" on June 20/21. Friday, June 20, features Hiway Freeker and nero (the BSI page now lists HF as "HiWay Freeker a.k.a. Bob Dylan Project"), and Saturday, June 21 has HF and CTSQ.
