Ed and I went out to dinner at City Cafe in Baltimore last night. It was a very good restaurant, that had a very scary waiter dressed as a clown from the series American Horror Story. I'm glad I haven't been watching that!
Afterwards we went to a house concert for Charm City Junction at Brad Kolodner's row home in the Hampden district of Baltimore. They are a terrific band, and we enjoyed them very much. They asked everyone to dress as their favorite fiddle tune. Brad was Cotton-Eyed Joe, Patrick was Whisky before Breakfast, and Alex was Forked Deer. Sean, the button Accordion player was an Adjunct professor--no fiddle tune there. Check them out at:
The second set was performed by Hoot & Holler, a fiddler and guitar player from Boston who sang as well as played. They did such a great job on their original song, Cigarettes and Coffee that we almost wanted to pick up a couple of new vices!
