Us Trackers continue to be optimistic, so we hope a passel of yez will join us on WED, FEB 2 for our next show.
Reminder to all of us…Masks are required and we expect all attendees to be vaccinated.
Your hardy hosts, Jim Clare, Cathy McGrath, and Allen Hopkins are excited to present some of our area’s finest musicians, as our Feature:
Let’s meet The Rubes …
+ BETSY KUBICK (fiddle and vocals): a veteran of the Western New York bluegrass, old time, and cajun music scene, as well as an occasional sojourner to Louisiana, West Virginia, and other centers of American roots music, Betsy has at last fulfilled her ambition to name a band “Kubick’s Rubes.”
+ PAUL SWIATEK (banjo, guitar, and vocals): Paul started performing in the Rochester area in 1978 with “Reeves and Swiatek” and has been writing and performing his own folk and bluegrass songs ever since. He’s been a regular performer at both Brian Coughlin’s Singer Songwriters in the Round and the Side Room in Shortsville, where he can frequently be seen picking with mandolin ace Perry Cleaveland.
+ JOHN DENNISTON (mandolin, guitar, vocals): Born and raised in Palmyra, NY, John is one of the region’s top mandolin players. Steeped in the classic Bill Monroe mando-playing tradition, he has honed his prodigious skills playing with Seneca County Bluegrass, Lisa Bigwood and the Washday Band, Cuttin’ the Grass, Eva and the Dog Boys, Cabin Fever, and The 1959s.
+ JORDAN KLEIMAN (upright bass and clawhammer banjo): A native of West Chester, PA, Jordan has played jazz and roots music in Philadelphia and Rochester since the 1980s. In addition to the Rubes, he is a core member of Rochester-based bluegrass bands The Crooked North and The 1959s, and enjoys an occasional gig with the Wild Root String Band, the Rough Alley Rounders, the FLX Bluegrass Allstars, Whorlwood, and others.
+EXALTED GUEST RUBES: Ethan Hughes, Mark White, Cap Cooke, Mark Manzoni, and Perry Cleaveland
