Subject: The Shivers & the Second Fiddles in NJ
From: WFDU - Ron Olesko
Date: 12 May 10 - 11:34 PM

On Saturday June 5 at 8:00pm, the Hurdy Gurdy Folk Music Club Concert Series at the Fair Lawn Community Center will wrap up their season with a "Turn Back the Clock Night" featuring the New York old-time string band the Second Fiddles, and from the mountains of Virginia, the Shivers. The Hurdy Gurdy promises an evening of old-time style music and vaudeville humor hat will take the audience back to the days of the early country music stage shows.

George and Susette Shiver bring variety musical comedy back to the stage. One part early country music, one part Bluegrass and one part vaudeville, The Shivers are George Burns and Gracie Allen gone country. But not the country of today, rather they have gone back to a time when the Carter Family, Jimmie Rodgers, the Delmore Brothers and Charlie Poole trod the boards with Will Rodgers and Uncle Dave Macon and comedy was a big part of the show.

Chance Shiver is a veteran performer whose voice and guitar have traveled the many roads of roots music, beginning with and now returning to the Bluegrass and Old Time music of his family from the Shenandoah Valley of Virginia. Susette Shiver brings her love of Carter-style singing, vocal harmonies from her church choir experience, and her autoharp and banjo styles to the Shivers' music, recreating an authentic old time sound.

Sharing the stage for this unique evening of music will be New York City's own The Second Fiddles. Formed in 2005, The Second Fiddles are a trio in the tradition of the great stringbands that performed at the turn of the century (the last century!) The artists that traveled with the medicine shows were adept at all genre's of American roots music. The Fiddles pull from the song books of Country, Blues, Bluegrass, Gospel and Swing bands of the 20's, 30's and 40's.

The Second Fiddles are Jon Vesey, Guilaume Goussault and Trip Henderson. Multi-Instrumentalist and Vocalist, Jon Vesey comes from a large musical family. He began singing in the church choir at a young age and has a love of all types of American Roots Music from Tin Pan Alley to Chicago Blues. During a typical Fiddles performance he will spread his time between mandolin, Git-jo, flat top and resonator guitars. Vocalist and guitarist Guillaume Goussault hails from Paris, France. He began his musical journey as a violinist, dabbled with piano, and eventually settled on the guitar. In the late 90's Guillaume fronted the NYC-based rock outfit Beatitude which had two independent releases. Trip Henderson has been singing and playing American vernacular music in all its many forms since moving to West Virginia in the mid-70s. These days he is an active participant in the vibrant Old Time, Bluegrass, Country and Blues scene in the New York City and maintains a busy schedule teaching harmonica and producing events for PBS.

The Fair Lawn Community Center is located at 10-10 20th Street in Fair Lawn, NJ. Tickets for this concert are only $20 ($17 for Hurdy Gurdy members) and can be purchased online at www.hurdygurdyfolk.org or at the box office at the Fair Lawn Community Center on the night of the concert.

Additional information can be received at the website or by calling the Hurdy Gurdy Hotline at (201) 384-1325.

"George and Susette"? Getting carried away with the imagery of the next sentence, Ron.

As correctly stated in the next paragraph that's Chance, Mudcat's own Fortunato.

Should be a fun night but too far for me.

Yes, yes, yes, Miss Susette and I are might excited about the taking the Shiver Show up to the Hurdy Gurdy. Susette's got a new hat and some new songs, too. I'm going to put brand new wires on the Gallagher and polish up my two tones. We might tell the New Jersey folks about the time Aunt Flory was abducted by aliens and her tuna noodle casserole.

Oh, we expect to have the best time. We hope ya'll can come.
Chance (My brother George may be there, too.)

Ouch!! My proofreading skills need a refresher course! I have no idea where "George" came from! I guess I was thinking George Burns and Gracie Allen!! Sorry about that!

Feel free to bring George along! :)

Ron,

I'm pleased and proud to be confused with George Burns, a great comic entertainer, except I'm a sight better looking and he's playing the big Vaudeville Theatre in the Sky, a booking I'm postponing as long as possible.

Well, friends, The lovely Susette and I don't travel up north to often, and I've just discovered that the Hurdy Gurdy, in Fair Lawn, NJ, is only 30 or 40 minutes from Manhattan and the Bronx. New York City.

Amazing. I'm wondering if there are any Mudcatter's within driving distance who might make it out to our show with The Second Fiddler's.

Give me a shout if you might make it.

regards,
Chance

This sounds like a fun time. I have yet to experience the full-force effect of the 30s-style Shiver Show, but I can imagine there will be plenty of grins and good pickin.

We are going to have some special guests as well - sitting in with the Second Fiddles on June 5 will be David Bennett Cohen - the original keyboardist from Country Joe & The Fish! David has performed with everyone from Jimi Hendrix to Hubert Sumlin and is a veteran of The Monterey Pop Festival, The Human Be-In and a mainstay of both the Greenwich Village and Haight Ashbury Folk scenes. David has several instructional DVD's and CD's available on Hompespun Tapes (Happy Traum's company) and his piano work has been described as "certifiably smokin' barrel house rumba boogie-woogie piano player in the James Booker/Professor Longhair/Dr. John vein."

Another special guest with the Second Fiddles will be bassist Jason Cypher.Jason is one of the best bassists in town. Very gifted. He's spent time at Berkeley and in New Orleans playing with Professor Longhair's and CJ Chenier's bands. His youtube clips are worth watching! - http://www.myspace.com/jasonsypher.

This is going to be a really fun evening! I am really looking forward to an evening of great music from both the Shivers and the Second Fiddles and I hope anyone who will be in the area will join us for this celebration!   I posted a "commercial" as well as a video from the Second Fiddles at our blogsite - www.hurdygurdyfolk.blogspot.com

Tremendous thanks to Ron Olesko and the board of Hurdy Gurdy for the great show on Saturday. Also to Bill the sound man for working very hard to get our mix just right in the monitors.

We had a great time and the audience was wonderful. We enjoyed meeting folks after the show; we thought they were so warm they must be secretly southern!

The Second Fiddle's were great to work with. Very cool selection of Jug Band, Hokum and old time music. Talented guys. Go see they when you can.
