The Kitchen Party’s Peter Robertson (fiddle) and Larry Smith (guitar) were joined by friends Sandy MacKay (drums) and Larry Ernewein (bass). All fine musicians, they carried the audience along as they wended from blues to country to jazz, sprinkled with “a hint of maritime sea salt”.
Mark Girdauskas was on hand to take photos of the show - check them out in the slideshow below.
Visual arts and music make for a truly enjoyable mix. Staff members at STEPAC are enthusiastic in their support of live music, local/regional musicians and bringing them together with audiences of all ages.
Once the gallery fills with a few people, the acoustics become very nice, and it is one of those venues where the back half of the room can listen, mingle and socialize while those intent only on the music can sit comfortably near the stage.
Watch for upcoming events at STEPAC, the perfect place for a pleasing meld of art, live music and audience engagement. (St. Thomas musician Deni Gauthier will entertain on March 24.)
