Mulebone brilliantly combines Hugh Pool's excellent blues/roots guitar, harmonica, vocals and stomp-board with John Ragusa's virtuosity on conch shell, Jews harp, cornet, all manner of flutes, tin whistle and back-up vocals. They play an intense mix of slide guitar boogies, 1 chord trance riffs a la Howlin Wolf, the uptempo rags of Reverend Gary Davis, country blues of all shapes and colors, a mix of tunes written by Pool and covers from the likes of Fred McDowell and Merle Travis. From New York, they play regularly in the city, but they have developed a following wherever they have toured. They were a big hit in front of the Mainstay at the 2012 Rock Hall FallFest and we are delighted to have them back for a full concert.

An Evening of Gershwin
Saturday, June 22, 2013 at 8:00 p.m.
Sue Matthews and Stef Scaggiari collaborate with a depth and complexity well-suited to the collaborations of George and Ira Gershwin. Sue is a superb singer with a silky smooth voice, an intimate style, flawless delivery, exquisite phrasing and a passion for finding every bit of meaning in the heart of a song. Stef is a brilliant pianist whose emotionally charged lyricism and flawless technique anticipates Sue's every interpretive nuance and whose classic brilliance shines on the Gershwin concert pieces. While George and Ira Gershwin as a songwriting team were rooted in the sounds and style of the Jazz Age, between their musical theatre and film work, the folk opera Porgy and Bess and George’s concert pieces such as Rhapsody in Blue, their work is timeless and magical.
