GRANGEVILLE It’s a hot summer evening. What are your plans? Why not join the community in the second week of the Grangeville Summer Concert Series?
This Thursday, July 17, Gefilte Trout out of Moscow will perform at Pioneer (City) Park at 6 p.m.
Gefilte Trout started as the contra dance band, Dancing Trout. Looking for something more melodically and harmonically interesting than American Old Time fiddle tunes, Carla Chandler started writing her own tunes with an Eastern European feel. The group re-formed around Klezmer music and morphed the name to match.
The band is described as playing a mix of Klezmer and Eastern European dance music and songs, influenced by jazz and Middle Eastern rhythms.
“Mostly we play for fun, but are available for concerts, parties, weddings, and coffee house gigs,” said Chandler.
The group features Bill Voxman on clarinet, Greg Donohoe on bass, Mary Donohoe with percussion and vocals, Bill Thompson on guitars and banjo, Carla Chandler on fiddle and Bill Thomson on mandolins.
The concert series is sponsored by Grangeville Chamber of Commerce and Grangeville Arts, Inc. Performances are free to the public; however, donations are accepted for all performances to help offset costs. All are invited to attend, bring chairs and picnic.
