Enjoy an informal get-together and a concert with Jud Caswell and Alfred Lund. Jud will have his new CD, "Watch the Fall" for sale and lots of songs and stories. Good things to eat and drink and of course you are welcome to contribute to the "community fridge." Jud and Alfred will also perform at Crow Town Gallery on Saturday evening.
Although he's known for his Bath and Brunswick appearances at Byrnes Irish Pub, Jud's concert performances are a completely different musical experience. They include banjo picking, Irish drinking songs, a rack of acoustic instruments, and a deep catalog of award-winning originals. He’s often compared to James Taylor and David Wilcox, but his songs draw on a long musical history and wide-ranging influences from jazz and Piedmont blues to contemporary folk and rock. Winner of many song writing awards, Jud has opened for the Americana trio Red Molly, among others.
Having performed with Jud for some twenty years, Alfred Lund is a percussionist and vocalist from Winthrop, ME. He performs on a wide variety of instruments he's made himself, from his hand-carved ashikos to his re-purposed speaker-box cajon to the inimitable "maraccasin" shaker-shoe. Coming from a background as a set drummer, his hands-on ensemble of percussion instruments add the perfect drive to acoustic folk and traditional musics.
House concerts are hosted in private residences and so location is not published. This is done for privacy reasons and also because reservations are required due to limited seating. Call or email the contact information to reserve a seat and get directions.
House concerts are a great way to enjoy music in an intimate setting, meet the artist, make new friends, and meet your neighbors. Most are "potluck" with a before and after "kitchen party" and often a music jam or song circle.
