Their performances bring together research in music, linguistics, folk literature, and performance practice to create unique and moving programs. Formed in 2017 and based here in Bloomington, the ensemble is an up-and-coming early music ensemble.

The Program of this performance will be Las Cantigas de Santa María, Music from Medieval Spain.

Bloomington Songwriter Showcase: Steve Boller, Bill Price & Bruce Kell w/Special Guest; Dr. Duecel K. LaBrew

08:00 pm to 10:00 pm
Bears Place - 1316 East 3rd St., Bloomington IN 47401
http://www.facebook.com/BloomingtonSongwriters

This Showcase will be filled with some amazing songs! Bill Price is one of the most contemplative singer/songwriters we’ve presented over the years. Visiting from the Indianapolis area, his melodies are addictive and his lyrics well thought. Steve Boller is possibly the strongest singer/musician in the Midwest with his high-energy style and classical guitar used for contemporary songs. Bruce Kell is known for his sense of humor and witty lyrics. His singing style is more conversational than not, but when he breaks into his alter-ego (Dr. Duecel K. LaBrew) and the Doctor’s “magical flute”, he steals the show every time!

Open Guest ‘Share-a-Chair’ is goin’ on at this evening as well. To sign up to play an original song, email [email protected] or show up early enough to get one of the five spots.
