Tomorrow evening at 6:30pm, Blue Moose & the Unbuttoned Zippers are playing a free show at Titus Sparrow Park in Boston's South End, near the Prudential and Back Bay T stops.
Blue Moose & the Unbuttoned Zippers is an acoustic quartet of mostly-strings, playing music that combines bluegrass, folk-rock, Cape Breton fiddling, and Norwegian & Swedish fiddle music.
- Bronwyn Bird - Nyckelharpa, Accordian, Vocals
- Andy Reiner - 5-String Fiddle, Octave Fiddle, Mandolin, Vocals
- Mariel Vandersteel - Fiddle, Hardanger Fiddle, Vocals
- Stash Wyslouch - Guitar, Mandolin, Vocals
Although they're local, I actually first saw them at Falcon Ridge Folk Festival last year, when they were in the emerging artists showcase. Out of 24 artists, audiences get to vote for three, and the three top vote-getters get invited back to perform as actual booked acts the following year - which Blue Moose did at this year's Falcon Ridge. I think they were #1 in last year's audience vote from the showcase.
Wanna come join me at the free show?
