Nate Sabat and Elise Bouer/Sumaia Jackson and Friends, 11/12

Nate Sabat and Elise Bouer/Sumaia Jackson and Friends
Wednesday, November 12, 8pm (doors 7:45)
Outpost 186
186 Hampshire Street
Students/seniors $8, all others $10

Nate has played for notloB in so many bands and we have crossed paths at so many festivals and concerts (he is fast becoming our favorite acoustic bass artist) we cannot remember when we discussed doing a feature concert, probably at the Blue Hat, Yeah! concert after he played a Norweigen mazurka that he told me of his new project....and here it is!

Nate Sabat, bass
A graduate of the voice program at New York City’s renowned LaGuardia High School, Nate Sabat’s musical roots are in choral singing. However, he started playing bass just before he began at LaGuardia, and, years later, was accepted to the Berklee College of Music as an upright bass principal. There, he has made it a goal to delve into the thriving Boston acoustic music scene, inside and outside of Berklee. He has only recently began playing Scandanavian folk music, and intends to continue to pursue it, hopefully in Sweden or Norway for an extended amount of time.

Elise Boeur, violin and hardingfele

Canadian fiddler Elise Boeur ties together diverse influences with a deceptively light touch - her distinctive, silvery tone belongs to a world of its own. Following her intensive study of Norwegian traditional music at Høgskolen i Telemark, Boeur is joyfully exploring the reaches of contemporary Scandinavian folk music on violin and hardingfele.

Sumaia Jackson, fiddle
Boston-based fiddler, Sumaia Jackson, has roots in Scottish and Irish fiddle styles, and for the past few years has delved into the rich tradition of Appalachian Old Time and American fiddle. Throughout her years on the West Coast, Sumaia was immersed in California's diverse music scene, blending elements of Jazz, Bluegrass, Scandinavian and Celtic styles. She continues to incorporate aspects of each of these styles into her playing creating a vibrant, groovy sound.

Outpost 186 is an all-ages venue.
