Eclectic Ethno-Country Virtuosity!

Adam & Noah Band, Jan. 17, The Buttonwood Tree

From the opening peal of the fiddle the wheeze and cry of accordion and violin had us moving to the exuberant Zydeco groove. When they slowed the tempo we could have been in central Europe. There was foot stompin' country and sweet Irish complete with tremolo mandolin and a (mostly underutilized) red haired lass at the mike. Red shoes too I see. Young and fresh but as talented as pros, at one point they called themselves a rock band. Well, rock they did . . . with just the right amount of swing.
