Kurt Newman - Medley: Gold Rush/Bill Cheatham

Ayal Senior's Sunday afternoon monthly at The Tranzac has been evolving into a genial live-action variety show, with stand-up comedy and a flurry of musicians playing shorter sets. Amongst other areas on inquiry, Kurt Newman has recently been exploring instrumental folk music — mostly fiddle tunes — arranged for guitar. That involves a cascading fractal rush of notes, framed by repeating patterns but also capable of infinite small variations.

[Ayal Senior's residency continues this Sunday (March 8th) with appearances from regulars Kurt Newman and Nick Flanagan as well as David Sait and Del Stephen's Today Versions.]

* Thanks to Kurt for passing along the titles to these!
