Traveling freely between bluegrass, swing, Celtic and jazz, a Too Blue show is a dynamic dose of serious fun. Smooth harmonies and adventurous musicianship bring stellar arrangements to life, and leave the listener anything but “blue”. Original songs as well as fresh covers from Patsy Cline, to Bill Monroe, to Ray Charles; keep the show moving and toes tapping.
Seamlessly blending their vocals are flatpick guitarist Betsy Rome and melodic banjoist Joan Harrison. Mandolin powerhouse Michael Sassano astounds and amazes, while bassist Jamie Doris’ jazz chops bring a creative perspective. On fiddle and vocals, the multi-talented Sofia Chiarandini is the 2014 recipient of the Grey Fox/Berklee Mark O’Connor Scholarship award.
“To quote Bill Monroe, ‘This is powerful music!’ …Swing-grass, 9 original tunes, hot pickin’ & sweet singin’.” –Barry Mitterhoff, mandolinist with Jorma Kaukonen
“Smooth harmonies, adventurous musicianship, and eclectic material… Ah, music for grown-ups.” –Eric Gibson, “The Gibson Brothers”
