On March 11th, The G Burns Jug Band is teaming up with the Hutchins Consort for a FREE concert at Encinitas Public Library at 11am. The Consort is a truly unique group of eight exceptional string musicians playing exceptional instruments. In the 1950s and 1960s American violinmaker Carleen Hutchins designed a group of 8 violins with complementary ranges spanning the musical spectrum from low to high. The instruments are today celebrated as masterpieces of acoustical design and luthiery, and have been exhibited at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York City. Hutchins’ legacy and instruments are today preserved and celebrated by the Consort, based in Encinitas. I’ve been busily arranging old ragtime, blues, and jazz works to highlight the ensemble’s stellar musicians. Repertoire will pull from rarely heard compositions of Louisville’s Dixieland Jug Blowers, Clifford Hayes, as well as other treats like a ragtime mandolin concerto, and a classical banjo piece. This will be a truly unique concert that you will not want to miss. Plus, ITS FREE!
