The Beamier Coffee House Concert Series will present All Strings Considered and The Knockabouts on Saturday, April 9. The event begins at 7 p.m. in the Panowski Black Box Theatre in the McClintock Building at Northern Michigan University. The suggested donation is $5.
All Strings Considered has a primary focus on traditional old-time instrumental and vocal music of the Appalachian region, with a bit of Celtic and Scandinavian tossed into the mix. The group's sound is a blend of Jamie Kitchel on fiddle, Rochelle Schuster on hammered dulcimer, Phil Watts on guitar, Annette Watts on autoharp and Maggie Morgan on bass.
The Knockabouts is a Marquette folk group specializing in traditional music from Ireland, Scotland, England and Canada. Members include Tim Clancy (flute and accordion), Tim DeMarte (bodhran, guitar, and vocals), Barb Rhyneer (fiddle) and Dan Truckey (guitar and vocals).
