Geoff Muldaur, Suzy Thompson, Tony Marcus, etc. in SF Bay Area


For those Weenies in the Bay Area:
Once a year, I play a few gigs with Geoff Muldaur in a conglomeration he calls (with tongue firmly in cheek) the Fountain of Youth String Band.  It consists of Geoff, Tony Marcus, Larry Hanks, me, and Eric Thompson.  Our annual gigs are coming up soon:
Fri. Dec. 2 at the Palms in Winters
Sat. Dec. 3 at the Freight & Salvage in Berkeley

We do a mix of old blues, jug band stuff, and other related material.  Geoff is one of my very favorite singers of all time, in fact, last time around I got so involved in listening to him singing Wild Ox Moan that I completely forgot to play anything on the fiddle and just played one note for the whole song.  He also has a very fine way of interpreting the old songs and making them his own, and creates wonderful guitar settings.
Some of you may know Tony Marcus from his work with Cats & Jammers and from the Cheap Suit Serenaders, he is expert at lots of different instruments and plays cool swing guitar among many other things.
Larry Hanks is a folksinger, an excellent Jimmie Rodgers style guitarist, has a magnificent deep bass voice, and is a world-renowned jews harp player
Eric Thompson (my beloved husband) doesn't say or sing much, but picks the hell out of any stringed instrument!
Me, I play the fiddle and sing some, and will probably play a bit of diatonic accordion at these gigs as well.
Hope to see some of you there!
Suzy Thompson
