The Kids on the Mountain

I was rained out of a solo gig at Humdingers two weeks ago, but on Saturday August 18, the weather held at cool and sunny for the debut of The Kids on the Mountain, my Irish traditional duo. Perin Ellsworth-Heller fiddled and I played guitar and harmonica, and together we delivered sets of Irish and New England fiddle tunes, plus a handful of vocal numbers.

I alternated between picking melodies and strumming, and also acted as musical tour guide to the minigolfers and ice cream families who joined us on the patio and who may or may not have had any idea what they’d signed up for. Judging from CDs sold and tips in the red bucket, plus several tables of dancing gnomes, we were a hit.

I’m returning to Humdingers for a non-Irish set on Friday Aug 24, and The Kids will be back at the same location on Friday Aug 31. Directions and venue info at the Shows page.
