4TET, Evie Ladin and Keith Terry, 10 String Symphony and Tattletale Saints, The Molly Tuttle Trio

Thank you for supporting the not-for-profit notloB music series.

SMALL CONCERTS - For the Winter and Spring seasons we are returning to our roots, presenting only at a small, intimate venue, a private home in Watertown.
The home owners have been very gracious but wish to present artists of their own choosing, and I respect that.
If you have a home that you could open to screened arts lovers and could accomodate at least 25, please contact me at 781-643-1586 or email


notoB Parlour Concerts presents....

Wednesday, February 12 house concert
Brittany, Cleek, Jordan and Nic share an interest in the championing of traditional music repertoire, new music composition, and the use of performance in both maintaining and critiquing the conventions surrounding folk music. They follow the work of mentors such as Bruce Molsky, Brendan Mulvihill and Eileen Carson-Schatz, in tandem with careful study of historical sources and inspirations outside of traditional music, and continue the legacy and lineage of traditional music. They're on a quest to probe the expressive and creative potential of fiddle tunes, traditional song, and vernacular dance.

Friday, February 28house concert
Energetic and electrifying clawhammer banjo, bass, percussive dance, storytelling songs old and new, with nuanced, emotive vocals. An intimate, robust evening of acoustic music and dance, a skilled hybrid of American folk arts.

Monday, March 31house concert10 String Symphony 10 String Symphony is an arena for mesmerizing acoustic innovation.  Although difficult to categorize, their music is instantly recognizable as a blend of two distinct but equally vivacious musical voices, encompassing “aggressive, almost discordant, celtic and dare I say punky string-chording experimentations” (The Bluegrass Situation).  Vocally, Rachel Baiman and Christian Sedelmyer lock in seamlessly, and their vocal duets often take center stage despite the fact that they are self-described fiddle players.
 Tattletale Saints
Tattletale Saints are a New Zealand based duo described as a “masterful blend of Americana fused with jazz, soul and pop” and made up of Cy Winstanley voice/guitar/harmonica and Vanessa McGowan voice/double bass.

Saturday, April 19house concertThe Molly Tuttle Trio 
featuring John Mailander and Brittany Karlson
Molly Tuttle, John Mailander & Brittany Karlson create an honest and soulful mix of original and traditional music. They have a deep respect for the past, while also looking toward the future of acoustic music. This tight-knit trio formed after meeting at the Berklee College of Music in Boston, MA. With a unique blend of provocative songwriting, tasteful arrangements and instrumental virtuosity, they are more than the sum of their parts.

LARGE CONCERTS - I am sorry to report the three concert experiment with the JP Unitarian church did not work out. This was to have been our venue for larger concerts. Two of the bands have requested to return; we would love to BOOK but due to lack of venue cannot honor the requests. If you are associated with a non-profit with whom I could collaborate to present benefit concerts, please call 781-643-1586 or email 
Your non-profit does not need to have a performance space, believe me I know of many fine 100-250+ seat listening rooms and small theatres from which we we could choose.

Keep your lamps trimmed and burning!
