The Bolton Parks & Recreation Commission is excited to announce our Summer Concert Series presented by Murphy Insurance featuring the Folksoul Ensemble!
Raindate: Monday, July 30, 5-7 PM
Fred Simmons and Leslie Vogel began playing music together way back when they attended Bard College. Their musical partnership has endured as well as their marriage, and has produced a steady stream of music via various projects, including but not limited to the two main musical groups that go under the heading of Folksoul Music. After years of performance the pair is also enjoying playing together just as a duo, drawing on a large repertoire of material of all kinds, spanning folk, oldies, originals, and songs that might not fit into a band set. Blending the trombone with piano, and guitar with accordion, there is plenty of variety and plenty of good rhythms. In addition, a new project has recently begun, adding daughter Rebecca on fiddle and vocals, and Dan Wheeler on stand-up bass, and for want of a better name, is being called the Folksoul Ensemble. This gives us the freedom to play songs that don’t require drums, and to play for occasions where a lighter sound is wanted.
Additional Concert Dates include:
July 8th (Dan and Faith)
August 5th (Far from Eden)
August 12th (SloGrass)
