Fast times last weekend at The Bell House in Gowanus for another epic Brooklyn Bluegrass Bash, which included hilarious rants by Americana badass David Bromberg, phenomenal fiddling from Darol Anger, Bruce Molsky and Brittany Haas, great banjo solos from Tony Trischka, a strong showing by the emerging Brooklyn bluegrass band Cricket Tell The Weather, and great short sets from Brooklyn bluegrass staples The Calamity Janes and Kristen Andreassen (with Stephanie Coleman).
Haas/Kowert/Tice returned to the Bash for the second year in a row for another mesmerizing performance. Anger was joined by Joe K. Walsh and Grant Gordy, two fellow band members from the recently formed Mr. Sun, for a jaw dropping set that included multiple songs off of the band’s forthcoming album. Bash organizer Michael Daves closed the night with a 30 minute All Star Jam Session that was pretty unforgettable.
Check out some great photos of the event shot by music photographer Jacob Blickenstaff that were graciously shared courtesy of the Bash.
