November 05 8:00 pm

Since teaming up as a duo last year, Bay Area bluegrass mainstays, banjo master Bill Evans & fiery fiddler Megan Lynch have been performing across the United States as well as in the British Isles and Ireland. Tonight they return to the Freight stage for a fabulous evening including selections from their recent CD, let's do something!

While we may expect virtuosic banjo and fiddle work from the two, the outstanding lead singing of Megan and the pair's rich duo vocal sound is a revelation. Drawing on singer-songwriter and alternative rock sources as much as traditional old-time and bluegrass music, the duo creates music that's intensely intimate and moving. Richly textured new takes on compositions from Nick Drake, John Gorka, Mark Knopfler, Van Morrison, and others, are interspersed with originals written by Bill, himself.

Banjo arteeste Bill has graced our stage many times over the last 15 years, in concert with everyone from David Grisman and Hazel Dickens to Bluegrass Intentions and his own Bill Evans String Summit. Folks know Nashville resident Megan from her National Championship fiddling credentials and from her performances with Due West, Tony Trischka, Roland White, and Jim Hurst.
