The Gnomes bring an enormous wealth of musical knowledge, musicianship, creativity, and fun to their performances. Their live shows are upbeat and never fail to get folks on their feet, moving and grooving! They'll go from a traditional tune into a tango, or a piece of music that makes you feel like you just stepped off a dirt road in Ireland to a sidewalk cafe in France. The Gnomes concerts also have plenty of songs interspersed with their instrumental music.
The band's members include some of Rhode Island's best known musicians: Phil Edmonds (Irish whistle and button accordion); Cathy Clasper-Torch (fiddle, keyboard, er-hu, vocals); Mike Fischman (guitar, mandolin, bouzouki, banjo, vocals); Peter Breen (bass, vocals); and Ron Schmitt (percussion).
Cold Chocolate is creating an exciting and unique new sound in the world of Americana: fusing bluegrass and roots with a dash of funk. With original tunes and technical prowess, this four-piece band from Boston is rocking audiences with guitar, banjo, upright bass, drums, and four-part harmony. Guitarist/songwriter Ethan Robbins began his bluegrass career at Oberlin College where he met upright bassist Kirsten Lamb and began to explore how this hard-driving fast-paced genre could be stretched. Now joined by the funk-inflected banjo of James McIver and the loose-wristed Ariel Bernstein on drums, Cold Chocolate has established itself as a force in the Americana genre.
