Sandcatchers is a Middle Eastern-Americana band comprised of experimental guitarist and composer Yoshie Fruchter, Michael Bates, an accomplished jazz bassist with a punk rock background, Myk Freedman, a pioneer of modern lap steel music, and drummer/percussionist Tim Keiper. The quartet explores the unprecedented combination of the oud, an instrument with centuries of history beginning in pre-Islamic Persia and Turkey, and the lap steel, a more recent invention with roots in the American South. Together with guest cellist Erik Friedlander, these musicians bring their varying backgrounds, specialties, and improvisational voices together to create a vibrant new sound. Their debut LP What We Found Along the Way will be released on November 3. (Chant Records). Catch them on The Falling Rocks Tour at the MJCCA Morris & Rae Frank Theatre on September 15.
$15 – 20.
