Bottom of the Bucket
Monterey-based Bottom of the Bucket combines Traditional Irish, Old Time, New England and

French Canadian music with their own eclectic, original sound. Coming from very different

musical backgrounds, the band’s members, Eric Martin, Stephen Enoch, Daniel

Garrigan-Byerly and, joined tonight by Bill Kopetchny, met while working at Gould Farm.

They joined the fiddle, guitar, djembe and mandolin to create their unique and expanding

repertoire. The addition of viola, banjo, bouzouki, penny whistle, feet and other hand

percussions has given the group an interesting sound for both concerts and contra dances.

To mention a few venues in the area, the band has taken the stage at Club Helsinki, The

Lion’s Den, the Buhrmaster Barn Dance, the annual Dance Flurry, the Eighth Step Dance in

Albany and countless living rooms and porches. For the past few years, they have kept

dancers moving at the Lenox Contra Dance Series

Anonymous 4
featuring music from the new Gloryland CD released in September of 2006. Gloryland is the diary of Anonymous 4's second pilgrimage to the roots of Anglo-American vocal music. The journey has led them to more of the most beautiful religious ballads, folk songs, folk hymns, and gospel songs ever to be found. Each sung poem contains a world of meaning in itself: together they tell a story of love and loss, hope and redemption. Their versions of the religious ballads and folk songs on this program follow the performances of traditional singers from the Ozark and the Appalachian mountains. They sing shape note tunes in the spare three-part harmonies in which they first appear in the nineteenth-century tune books. Similarly, the program includes two gospel songs as they were originally set by their composers. The other hymns and gospel songs on Gloryland

were arranged by members of Anonymous 4.
