MAMA CAUGHT FIRE
female vocal trio from Minneapolis

Abigail Tuominen, Molly Sowash, and Julia Hobart - vocals, guitars, ukuleles & piano

Intricate harmony, emotional storytelling, and raw vocal power are what can be
expected from a performance by the Minneapolis based vocal trio Mama Caught Fire.
At the center of the group's sound is three-part vocal harmony, often accompanied by guitar, ukulele, or piano. Abigail , Molly Sowash and Julia met in 2013 and have been raising their voices in song together ever since.

*** Radim Zenkl GoFundMe ***
Some may not yet know that our pal, House Concert performer and world reknowned
mandolinist Radim Zenkl lost his house including many valuable instruments and
invaluable family and touring mementos in the fires in Paradise in November.
Support is being collected thru the following GoFundMe link -

***** Special Request *****
Many of our visiting performers are in need of a place to stay when they come to play.
Any House Concerteers with the wherewithall to take home a musician can count on,
not only free admission, but the scintillating company of a disciplined and conscientious
student of their chosen musical tradition. Let me know if this is a possibility.

A YEAR IN HOUSE CONCERTS 2015

Imagining what a House Concert featuring one tune from each of our performers over the entire year might sound like, I've lined up one example of what each of our performers have provided us over the past year. To be sure, there have been a couple of evenings that missed being recorded and I hope your favorite was not among them. I also hope you can do without titles as announcements are not always intelligible on the recordings. Click on each of these links to access the audio files.
