At Jalopy Tavern: Robert Ross

Tuesday, May 23rd, 2017
At Jalopy Tavern
7pm - 9pm - Robert Ross
No Cover!

Robert Ross is a two-time winner of the coveted New York Music Award for Best Blues Artist. Ross won his first New York Music Award for Best Blues Artist in 1989 and has been nominated a total of 7 times over the years alongside such stars as Johnny Copeland, Taj Mahal, John Hammond Jr., Roscoe Gordon, Cyndi Lauper and Mose Allison. Robert also won an East Coast Rocker Award for Best Blues Artist in 1991. Ross is a New York Blues Hall of Fame inductee. The Robert Ross Band plays hard driving boogie, hip grinding soul, burning rock ‘n’ roll, and low down and dirty blues. David Hinckley of the NY Daily News once wrote, “Robert Ross is one of the most impressive young bluesmen around.”

Robert’s 2004 CD “What Are We Fighting For?” was released on Fountainbleu Records. The 4 song CD was a mix of original gospel, blues, folk and rock tunes that examined democracy, nationalism, freedom, security, corporate greed, and war. The politically charged lyrics were a bit of a departure for Ross who is primarily known for blues.

City Stompers Square Dance with Concert by Stephanie Coleman, Cleek Schrey & Indiana Hoover

Saturday, May 27th 2017
7:00pm


City Stompers presents oldtime fiddle music at its most sublime and groovy from NYC favorites Stephanie Coleman, Cleek Schrey and Indiana Hoover for a concert and a Square Dance/Oldtime Jam. Beginner Workshop in Square Dancing and Southern Appalachian style flatfoot clogging with Megan Downes. Flatfoot Freestyle Competition for all, sign up at nycitystompers.com.
Details:
7:00pm - Beginner Dance Workshop in traditional mountain squares and flatfoot clogging with Megan Downes.
8:30pm - Concert: Stephanie Coleman, Cleek Schrey and Indiana Hoover with Megan Downes.
Stephanie Coleman and Cleek Schrey play profoundly groovy traditional tunes with undeniably moving beauty. Each performs and teaches workshops throughout the United States, Europe and Australia. Stephanie settled down in Brooklyn to make the session at Lowlands a crucible for oldtime music in NYC. In 2009, she toured with Uncle Earl, an internationally known all-girl string band. Stephanie still plays with Kristin Andreassen and Jefferson Hamer, and is a favorite at New York City Tradfest playing fiddle and banjo and singing with the Murphy Beds’ other half, multi-instrumentalist Eamon O’Leary. One of her favorite fiddle partners is Cleek Schrey, originally from Virginia. A masterful player of oldtime and Irish fiddle, Cleek is a man of insatiable learning and a musician of breathtaking depth and variety. Like Stephanie, Cleek is powerfully loyal to traditional tunes, yet Cleek has dedicated much of his artistry to new sounds and thoughtful collaborations. Cleek is continuing up an academic path beyond a Masters in Composition. Indiana Hoover invigorates the NYC oldtime music community playing for lots of happy folks at the New York City Barndance, at the Hoedown for City Stompers and at Lowlands traditional session. Megan Downes will jump up and join the band once or twice to add a taste of traditional, improvisational percussive dance.
10:00pm - Square Dance and oldtime jam session, featuring open Flatfoot Freestyle Competition. Bring your instrument and play along with the band! All dances taught and called by Megan Downes. Sign up for Flatfoot Freestyle Competition at nycitystompers.com. Prizes awarded for Style, Bravery, Keeping Time, and Making Rhythm. Prizes include oldtime music recorded for dancing and six months of free Flatfoot classes with City Stompers, so get up and join in!
