This is the second of 3 nights (in 4 days) of old time fiddle music at the Nightlight organized by our friend Cece Conway. We're excited to be able to enjoy and learn from so many excellent musicians in 3 stacked shows. Like the previous night, this show opens with a round robin of musicians sharing tunes and conversation and closes with a proper concert, this time from JAKE BLOUNT and TATIANA HARGREAVES. schedule below.

7:30-9:30 - round robin featuring JOSEPH DECOSIMO, PETER WHITE, BOB HERRING, CARY MOSKOVITZ, JAKE BLOUNT, and TATIANA HARGREAVES.

9:30-10:30 fiddle and banjo duo TATIANA HARGREAVES & JAKE BLOUNT. Their "Reparations" CD presents tunes from Black and Native American communities as stripped-down duets for banjo, fiddle, and voice. In 2016, Jake became the first African American to win in the traditional band category at Clifftop, WV and in 2009, Tatiana was the second woman to win the Clifftop Fiddle contest.
