News and Notes:
Tucson, Arizona based bands I have played with:
Round the House presents a mixture of songs and energetic Irish traditional dance tunes (jigs and reels and hornpipes, just to name a few). We bring authentic Irish music, with a twist of Tucson, to stages throughout the southwest. The lineup is Claire Zucker on vocals and bodhran, Sharon Goldwasser on fiddle, Dave Firestine on mandolin, banjo and bouzouki, and Mark Robertson-Tessi on guitar, bouzouki, and mandolin. Round the House's 2004 CD 'Til the Wee Hours was named best new release by Tucson readers and was featured on NPR All Songs Considered website. Five-time winners of the TAMMIE award for best traditional/ethnic band in Tucson.
The String Figures are an acoustic hot-pickin' trio that plays bluegrass and swing numbers in an open, improvisational style. Every show is different! Master guitarist Greg Morton knows all the chords and plays hot solos with a distinctive cross-picking style. Mark Robertson-Tessi plays mandolin, bouzouki, and guitar with clear, high-energy tone and rhythm. Jim Stanley locks down the rhythm on bass. Greg and Mark's previous band was voted the Best Bluegrass Band in Tucson by Tucson Weekly readers, in the 2004 Tammies Poll. Our shows feature some of the best progressive acoustic music playing to be found in the southwest. The material spans bluegrass, swing, and western traditions, as well as some newer material. Come down and have a good time!
The Determined Luddites are a high-energy acoustic quartet, and multiple winners of the Best Folk Band in Tucson by Tucson Weekly readers. The lineup is Dan Hostetler on guitar, mandolin, and vocals, Dan Davis on mandolin, mandola, guitar, and vocals, Donny Russell on mandoin and vocals, and Randi Pantera on bass and vocals. They play an eclectic mix of originals, fiddle tunes, old jazz standards, Celtic music, and more. I played with the group for five years, and still sit in with them on occasion. The also have an alter-ego surf band called Big Galoot.
