'An eclectic group of string wizards come together to present an evening of ear candy from various roots music traditions.'
What do you get when you bring six great players together onstage in front of a room full of music lovers? This is the musical question that the only the Mighty String Thing can - and will - answer!
One look at who's coming out to play and you know they're players who are going to deliver the goods. Their track records are chock full of names you know who only play with the best, and together they bring a century or two of experience to the stage.
If you've ever been to a folk festival, you know what can happen when artists of different musical persuasions get together. We're talking once-in-a-lifetime musical moments that leave everyone in the house - both the players AND the listeners going "Wow, did that really happen?". They're usually served up with some great stories and a side order of laughter too.
If you've never been to one of these sessions, the Mighty String Thing is your chance to check one out, with no worries about the weather and a comfy seat to boot.
It's a night of fine music that seriously you do not want to miss.
Mighty String Thing are: Kevin Breit, Doug Cox, Cécile Doo-Kingué, Sam Hurrie, Bill Kirchen, Mark Stuart
