Spring 2016 Events

Friday, Feb. 12: The Crooked River Stompers ~ Traditional String Band and Blues    

Frohring Recital Hall, 7:30 p.m.

FREE and open to the public!

The Crooked River Stompers is a folk orchestra in the grand style of the classic string bands of the 1920s and 30s. The three members, Jack DiAlesandro, Jon Mosey and John Reynolds, have been playing this music individually for nearly forty years. Together they’ve formed one of the most exciting groups to come out of Ohio in decades. Drawing inspiration from the likes of Martin, Bogan & Armstrong, Gid Tanner & the Skillet Lickers, the Mississippi Sheiks, the Dallas String Band and the Quintette Of The Hot Club Of France, the Stompers swagger through a lexicon of early 20th century music with energy born of their intimate knowledge of the styles.

Reynolds, Mosey and DiAlesandro revisit their blues and ragtime roots and explore the challenging and sophisticated material, displaying their skills on a wide range of instruments. Classic rags, blues rags, medicine show tunes, virtuoso old-time fiddle tunes and other American Roots material: an evening with the Crooked River Stompers is guaranteed to be entertaining.
