Woody Witt
Larry and Woody have developed a strong musical partnership over the past several years, touring and performing together in Houston and elsewhere in Texas, across the southwest and the west coast, in Alaska, and in New York City.  Their current tour will also include some time in the recording studio to create a new DC, to be released this fall.

Drummer Tom Melito and bassist Lee Hudson will complete the group for this tour and for this year's concert.  Both are highly regarded members of the New York jazz community and have been performing and recording with Larry for many years.

October 7 ... Friday, 7 PM The Trophy Husbands

Trophy Husbands
John Kribs (guitar /banjo), Arlin Greene (bass), Doug Moody (fiddle) and Orion Kribs (mandolin /guitar), collectively known as "The Trophy Husbands",  is a powerful combination of instrumental virtuosity and truly "explosive" vocal  harmonies

As four of the North Country's most highly regarded musicians - they have put their minds, hearts, voices and strings together with a repertoire of both iconic and obscure   Americana, traditional folk music and well crafted original songs.

Guitarist and singer songwriter John  Kribs is the founder of Racquette River Rounders and Johnny & the Triumphs, a former "McKrell" and guitarist for "The BlueBillies". His songs have gone to the top of the "American Play" charts in France and used on NPR's "Car Talk".

 Fiddle virtuoso Doug Moody (Papa Chubby, The Steam Donkeys, and The McKrells) is a veteran of more than 20 years of touring. One of the most sought after "sidemen" in the northeast, he has been drafted into a "countless and eclectic" list of upstate string bands. Bassist Arlin Greene cut his musical teeth with his father, legendary country artist "Smokey Greene". In his long and unique career, he has worked with artists as varied as Dan Tyminski (Allison Kraus), and 80s pop star "D Train" Williams.

 By 15, Orion Kribs was performing regularly with his father. In the 15 years since then he has become an outstanding musician, singer songwriter, and soloist in his own right as a member of the cutting edge alt rock band "Black Mountain Symphony" and country music's "BlueBillies".
