House Concert in Fort Thomas with Ritt and Wilder Deitz (cincinnati)

Leave a comment

Here are some pictures taken by Tessa Killen during a magical evening performance in the house concert series known as Parlor and Patio held in greater Cincinnati. The location and sound are ideal for an intimate evening—impressive attention to detail, warm and inviting hosts, and post show music (not to mention bourbon).

House Concert in Bloomington with Ritt and Wilder Deitz

Yes please. Music with an old friend from the college days spurred into action by the seredipitous planet of ours. I was slated to be in Bloomington for a Dean’s Advisory Council meeting of the Luddy School of Informatics. Then a post card arrived with a request to “alert the Bloomington troops” scrawled across the front announcing a house concert on the very same day.

So a sideman on the fiddle was added to the bill. What a magical evening. Intimate, energetic, and filled with love.

Clarke County House Concert at Clark’s House

Clark and Ginger’s house that is. The hosts kindly set things up for some twenty-somethings on their way between gigs on their East coast tour (in multiple cars based in Augusta, Georgia). Ginger’s niece Bethany Davis is a great singer in multiple bands, one called “Bethany & Balducci” (see a youtube video here). This configuration included a bass player and another multi-instrumentalist.
