The Sugar Beets, Live & In Concert

Mar 8 2008 - 8:00pm
Mar 8 2008 - 11:00pm

With a style akin to Leftover Salmon or Widespread Panic, they issue energetic tunes with the tight musicianship of a band that includes two female vocalists, acoustic guitar, keyboards, fiddle, mandolin, upright bass, and drums.
 They played Appalachian folk as easily as The Commitments-style soul, and the crowd loved it...

The Band

Tracing its roots back to musical traditions as diverse as Bluegrass, Celtic and Jazz, New Old Stock boasts four of the most accomplished and creative young talents of their generation.

The quartet combines the unique musical stylings of hammered dulcimer virtuoso Simon Chrisman and banjoist Wesley Corbett with the inimitable sound of brother-sister fiddle duo Tristan and Tashina Clarridge. Tristan, an inventive cellist and 4-time Grand National Fiddle Champion, currently tours with Darol Anger’s Republic of Strings and has appeared with Cape Breton fiddle phenomenon Natalie MacMaster. In 2008, he will tour internationally with Crooked Still, taking over for cello monster Rushad Eggleston. His sister Tashina, the 2005 Grand National Fiddle Champion, has toured with Mark O’Connor and performed at Carnegie Hall as part of Grammy-winning bassist Edgar Meyer's Young Artists program. Since starting the banjo at age 16, 21-year-old Wesley Corbett has appeared with the David Grisman Quintet, Matt Glaser, and Crooked still, recently opened for Tony Rice as part of the Lincoln Meyers String Alliance, and currently tours with North Carolina’s bluegrass sensation the Biscuit Burners. Wesley’s longtime musical collaborator, hammered dulcimer wizard Simon Chrisman, has performed at Seattle's Benaroya Hall with the Seattle Central jazz band, opened for Bill Frisell, and at 16 was invited to be a scholarship guest artist at the Augusta Heritage Festival in West Virginia.

The result of the foursome’s collaboration is an elegant fusion of tradition and innovation. New Old Stock is a powerful creative force at the forefront of the emerging New Acoustic music scene.
