Subject: RE: Riggy Rackin CD: Somewhere in Between
The concert was excellent! Some of Sonoma County's best musicians expertly backed up Riggy and Kate who took turns at lead vocals and gave us the high points of their respective CDs. Fine singers and players, the both of them, and mature in their craft/art.

I counted the following instruments being played:

2 violins
1 viola
1 octave mandolin
1 mandolin
1 12-string guitar
1 upright bass
2 6-string guitars
2 hummels
1 hammered dulcimer
1 lap harp
1 folk harp
1 accordion
1 concertina
1 recorder

...and I probably left something out. There must have been 200+ strings on the stage. Amazingly, they all sounded pretty much in tune.

All in all a triumphant evening.

Cheers,
Michael
