On Friday, August 17 notloB Parlour Concerts will welcome to the historic Loring-Greenough House (c. 1760) in Jamaica Plain Sandra Wong and Ross Martin.
notloB had planned to take the Summer off, but when Sandra Wong called, we said YES!
Sandra Wong and Ross Martin come together in a dynamic combination of nyckelharpa/fiddle, and guitar to explore music from all corners of the globe, including their own compositions. Sandra and Ross have been playing music together for 8 years and are now taking their duo on the road.
Reaching into their individual roots of Classical Western, Bluegrass, Jazz, Scandinavian, Middle-eastern, Old-time American music and more, their arrangements honor each tradition while moving into new, unchartered territory. Whether it’s old-time tunes in 7, Bach on nyckelharpa and guitar, Swedish tunes from hundreds of years ago brought into a 21st century arrangement, original compositions or simply beautifully played renditions of traditional folk melodies from around the world; Sandra and Ross create a musical playground for everyone (both musicians and listeners) to explore, play, stretch, and grow in a joyful space.
