Enjoy a fun evening of music to beat the midwinter blues! Featuring Rochester’s own acoustic “BluesGrass” quartet The Crawdiddies, along with the American folk trio The Brothers Blue, who were named audience favorite at Golden Link’s “New Voices” Emerging Artists Showcase in September 2015. Pre-concert activities include a sing-around/jam session hosted by Dean Santos, starting at 5 pm, and a chili supper from 6 to 7 pm (both meat and vegetarian chili). Bring your instruments and voices to join in the fun! Chili supper tickets are $5 adults/$3 kids, available for purchase at the door.
Using traditional acoustic instruments, the Crawdiddies conjure an exciting musical experience. Drawing from several troves of American roots music including Delta blues, Appalachian old-time, bluegrass, and R&B, they are equally at home on stage or around the campfire. A staple of the Rochester scene, the ‘Diddies – “Washboard Dave” Paprocki, “Banjo Ben” Haravitch, bassman Jay Chaffee, and the magnificent Heather Taylor – have created bluesy grooves all over the city from Lovin' Cup to Hose 22, Abilene, and the Lilac Festival.

The Brothers Blue
In 1998, schoolmates Ben Haravitch and Matt Sperber began learning songs together on an acoustic guitar and have been playing and writing music together ever since. During the spring of 2015, they got together with fellow folk musician and fiddle player Charlie Coughlin and formed The Brothers Blue. They strive to achieve a sound that represents the fascinating landscape and history of their homeland, performing original and American traditional folk songs throughout the Buffalo, Rochester, and Finger Lakes regions.
