About The Ploughshare Poets:
Ryan Stauffer and Vade King are The Ploughshare Poets, a popular duo at the Bottlebrush Gallery known for their boisterous Celtic music, strong harmonies, clever banter, and impromptu parades through the streets of Harmony. Far from being a kitschy pub band, they are masters of the history and cultural importance of Scottish and Irish music. Expert musicians, The Poets play bagpipes, guitar, whistles, drums, and bouzouki. Ryan has played bagpipes for 20 years and makes his own small pipes.
Vade played extensively in England and Scotland and was the lead singer of
“Colin’s Way” for 10 years.

10stringsmall10 String Symphony (Nashville)

March 6th 2015, 7pm  $15

Co-sponsored by McPharlin Music.  Limited Seating! RSVP to the Gallery at 724.452.0539

Nashville’s 10 String Symphony is an experiment in acoustic innovation. “…Their music is a blend of two distinct but equally vivacious musical voices, encompassing “aggressive, almost discordant, celtic and dare I say punky string-chording experimentations” (The Bluegrass Situation).  Vocally, Rachel Baiman and Christian Sedelmyer lock in seamlessly, and their vocal duets often take center stage despite the fact that they are self-described fiddle players. Their desire to see just how far a two-fiddle, two-vocals instrumentation could take them was the inspiration for the 10 String Symphony project.

Only two years old as a band, the duo has already gained recognition and attention from some major festivals, landing slots at the ROMP festival in Owensboro, KY, the Strawberry Music Festival in Yosemite, CA, and a headlining slot at the 2014 Auckland Folk Festival in New Zealand.

As a songwriter/arranger/performer Jay’s musical versatility and down to earth folk style speaks to the listener of the simple joys found in everyday life. A talent for vivid storytelling combined with crisp and delicate acoustic melodies makes it easy to understand why Jay’s songs so effortlessly touch the hearts of his fans.

No charge for admission… we only ask that you bring food, toys or supplies donations for the animals. The Humane Society’s donation “wish list” can be seen here:  One easy item to bring that is incredibly useful:  Fold Top Sandwich Bags! Those plain little sandwich bags, not the Ziploc types. The shelter really needs these!
