This weekend at the Buttonwood Tree...

Friday, November 1

Mattabesset String Collective
8 pm, $10

Mattabesset is a 5-piece acoustic ensemble playing an eclectic mix of bluegrass, blues, folk, country and rock, all in a string band style. The band has played in various configurations around central Connecticut for over ten years.  Its present lineup includes Barry Chernoff (guitar), Marc Eisner (mandolin), Rebecca McCallum (fiddle), Chad Reddick (bass), and Gil Skillman (banjo, cuatro, and dobro).

Describing a recent show on Wesleyan’s campus, the student newspaper wrote, “Perhaps it was the cozy, casual atmosphere, or the self-effacing and vivacious charisma of the performers, but… that night was all but burning with friendly energy against a nimble soundtrack of bluegrass and classic rock… in my mind, no words could ever quite describe the sound.”

Reserve your seat!
