The Riverdog Barn season is officially over until next May, but there’s one last “totally unplugged” concert happening on the property, taking place in the gallery, which they’re calling “Lagniappe” — that little something extra you weren’t expecting (It’s also the name of my orange tabby.)
Double bassist Jacob Warren & violinist/tenor guitarist/nyckelharpa player Grant Flick call themselves “Grant & Flick” professionally. The University of Michigan graduates perform both originals and re-arranged standards of all types. The acoustic duo released a pair of albums, 2019’s Kestrel, and 2022’s Waxwing, displaying a stylistic diversity that takes in influences ranging from classical music to bluegrass to jazz. They have a passion for teaching as well as playing and lead workshops and clinics or young players.
“Through the wide spectrum of acoustic music, our goal is to inspire and educate each individual we serve to personally connect to music, they say. “By learning music passed down and played by ear, students learn to associate with the tradition of acoustic music while also finding its inherent freedom which allows them to discover and explore their own inner musicianship.”
Go here to get tickets; keep in mind the room is smaller than the barn so you might want to reserve them quickly.
