Tomorrow night at the Crabapple Tavern I am lucky enough to play the music I love with musicians who share my passion. Brent Sandel a multi-instrumentalist from “The Tips,” has been one of my biggest musical influences since we met almost 10 years ago. Brent is an accomplished and tasteful musician. Besides Brent, my father would be my largest musical influence. Teaching me how to play fiddle tunes with a flatpick, a craft he had passed on to him from friends years before I was born. Maybe he will sit in and play the tunes, “the way they are meant to be played.” Music from every generation and genre can be found in the inspiration for our playing, while we will focus on some of our mutual favorites. From Irish traditions to brand new originals, and something for everyone somewhere in mix.
