Concert by The Barn Cats in Northeast Harbor
September 3 @ 7:00 pm
The Barn Cats, a maddeningly eclectic string-swing-jazz quartet, will play at The Nor’Easter Pound and Market, 10 Huntington Road in Northeast Harbor, on Saturday, Sept. 3, at 7 p.m.
They may look like a bluegrass band but when they sail smoothly into classic standards like “Begin the Beguine” “Fascinating Rhythm” and ”Cry Me
a River,” you may say “What in tarnation?”
Born in a barn in Brooksville, the Cats are classical violnist Chris Nemeth, vocalist and dobroist (what’s that?) Bob Hipkens, guitar maestro Phil Kell, bassist
Tom Karnofsky with guest vocalist and ukeist Brittany Parker and guest violinist and
mandolinist Jim Coffman.
They play and sing a book-full of swing jazz and cabaret standards but marble their sets with originals as well as folk, western swing and Latin classics.
