TWO ACTS! Aaron Nathans & Michael G. Ronstadt/ Wordplay w/ Michael G. Ronstadt
April 5 @ 7:15 pm - 10:00 pm$10.
Aaron Nathans & Michael G. Ronstadt – a dynamic cello-guitar duo who push boundaries of folk music with a creative, adventurous, wildly enjoyable approach. These two artists challenge themselves with complex orchestral arrangements, and venture into lyrical corners other songwriters wouldn’t dare — climate change rendered as a hallucinogenic carousel ride. Michael hails from the famous musical family, is a member of the Ronstadt Brothers (formerly Ronstadt Generations) and Serenity Fisher & The Cardboard Hearts. He works with Craig Bickhardt and David Trotta. Aaron oft performs solo and, along with Avi Wisnia, founded and leads the Philly Songwriters Circle. He’s been a Kerrville New Folk finalist. Among many other accolades, Nathans & Ronstadt were named Best of Philly Folk Fest by Philly CityPaper. http://nathansandronstadt.com
Wordplay joined by Michael G. Ronstadt – Charley Farrell and Amy Forsyth are Wordplay – a husband/wife duo that performs some covers and many of Charley’s original songs with Charley on guitar, vocals, and harmonica and Amy on hardanger fiddle, and vocals. Their freind MIchael G.Ronstadt oft joins them on cello – he joined them when they recorded their CD Odd Bedfellows. The second half of this evening will continue the wonderful musical journey that the first half begins. http://www.amyforsyth.com/cd-and-lyrics.html
