New England duo Audrey Budington and Clayton Clemetson perform spirited yet heartfelt genre-defying original compositions on fiddle and piano. Whether contemplative melodies that conjure up images, spunky innovations that inspire groove, or a slick lick adroitly mastered, a current of idealism and sincerity permeates their music. Audrey and Clayton's passion for traditional New England, Irish, Cape Breton and Scottish dance music, sprinkled with their flair, is astutely expressed in their rousing performance.

MO' COMBO

MaryFaganPic

 

Based out of the Dartmouth/Lake Sunapee region, or "Upper Valley" of NH, Mo'Combo has evolved from various combinations over the past couple of years into it's present funky form. The chemistry between these players borders on mystical. See one of their shows and you'll see - and hear - musical communication on a higher plane. And with some 120 years of combined stage experience, that means one thing for the audience: groovin'! You'll get tight percolating rhythms, tasteful instrumental interplay, improvisational journeys and three accomplished vocalists - each distinctive, each with their turn to shine, and other times all three pouring their hearts into irresistible, soulful harmonies. You'll hear some unique (and always seriously funky) takes on a surprising assortment of tunes. Mo'Combo is equally adept at driving rythms and hip-grinding ballads, and will satisfy both the audiophiles with musical intricacies and subtleties, and the casual listener with a rhythm section that jumps right into your pocket and stays there long after the last note is played. Mo'Combo is, in two words: simply grooving'.

Will Michaels Guitar, vocals Pickin' from the tender age of ten, and with roots touring the east coast full time, most notably with Sam Vine, and Dario's Show Band, Will settled in Lebanon NH several years ago. He shared his solo talents around the upper valley with finger-pickin' acoustic blues and soulful vocals for a time and is now back in the band scene throwing subtle and tasteful voicings in between his soaring leads.

Scott Sanborn Keyboard, vocals Scott lives in Orange, NH, and has performed locally since the late 1980's, including with favorites Surreal McCoy and SmackDaddy. He has also recorded and performed with the critically acclaimed Ports-mouth NH based Lolita's Bliss. Powerful and versatile vocally, he draws from a background in widely varied genres to pour his soul into the "88's" whether covering a funky horn riff, grinding out howlin' B3 tones, taking a synth solo to new heights or tickling out the blues.

Skip Truman Bass guitar, vocals A local legend in his own right, from Hanover NH, Skip played and recorded with Tracks, whose early 1970's album retains a cult following still, and with the Davis Brothers Band. He has more recently plied his trade with bluesmaster Johnny B. & the Goodes. He has shared the stage with the likes of the James Gang and Canned Heat. Ever the groove-master on the bass, he also lays out a smooth, sweet tenor to send shivers down your spine.

Dana Flewelling Percussion A true "A-list" drummer, from Newbury, NH Dana's musical career spans over 30 years from local legends of the 1980's Great Legs and Night Kitchen, to more recently, R&B favorites like the Squids. Whether the tune calls for tight, "in the pocket" grooves, or rippin' the skins, "the percolator" is always right there for ya —
