Bee Eaters on B.I.

The Bee Eaters‘ concert last night at the BPA was an extraordinary experience. The four-person band (banjo, hammered dulcimer, cello, fiddle) played to a full and enthusiastic house, and since they return to Bainbridge regularly, I’m already looking forward to hearing them again.

Simon tunes his hammered dulcimer before the show. He plays with such grace and precision, he becomes a dancer at the dulcimer.

They play around with enough dissonance to give their sound a new-music edge, while being firmly grounded in traditional American/Appalacian roots.

  1. Hi Katie! We actually left a little early, hoping to catch you at your shop during art walk. No go, but we liked what we saw so far–very exciting!
