Hot Damn Scandal

American Barrelhouse from Bellingham

Hot Damn Scandal finds its songs under park benches and in forgotten alleyways.
The resulting outlaw ballads, dirty jazz, circus freakouts, shanty-rags, string band funk,
lonesome heart-breakers, and whiskey bottle love songs blend together in a
sweet song syrup somewhere between a ramble and a roar. Sometimes called
‘Northwest Devil Swing’, Hot Damn Scandal pulls no punches and and puts thunder
in your molasses.

Trippin' the Dew

Brae Lewis - banjo, mandolin
Seabury Gould - bouzouki, guitar, vocals
and guests

Seabury and Brae play "Celtic and Beyond" music on their eponymous CD "Trippin the Dew".
They unleash their dazzling teamwork with traditional Irish dance tunes, driving rhythms,
fun and poignant songs, and shared passions for taking Irish/Celtic melodies and grooves
on an uplifting new journey. In addition to traditional material, they include four original
songs on the album. On Seabury's "Transparente" a Latin groove supports visionary
lyrics with a Celtic tune interwoven and a chorus of "Transparent to the Transcendent".
Brae's compositions express an eclectic mosaic of folk and bluegrass,
while his banjo playing is reminiscent of Bela Fleck.
Blake Ritter's amazing fiddle playing brings excitement and inventiveness to three
of the sets of tunes. An original song of Seabury's is enhanced by the exquisite
fiddle playing of long-time collaborator Evan Morden. Other guest musicians
(Nate & Zach Zwerdling and Artemisia) who played on the album will also perform for
the CD release. Seabury and Brae enjoyed immensely recording at Bongo Boy Studio
with Dominic Romano's brilliant engineering. Seabury, Brae and the Dew-Trippin
guest musicians play Celtic music with spirit, imagination and an unwavering
respect for the rich traditions from which it springs.

*** 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 2018.
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.
