More Live Music + Sultans 3

The Uncertainty Music Series, curated by bassist/composer Carl Testa, presents a 3-part show this Saturday December 15 at 8 p.m. in The Big Room, 319 Peck Street (Erector Square) in New Haven. Scheduled are 2 solo sets, one featuring Nick Millevoi on guitar and the other Keir Neuringer on saxophone.  Following them will be an unnamed Quartet composed of Annie Rhodes (voice), Adam Matlock (accordion), Ben Klein (tuba) and Maura Valenti (harp). Ms. Valenti is currently in the Masters of Music program at Yale University while the other 3 members have worked together on numerous occasions.  Mr. Millevoi is a Philadelphia, PA, resident known for his wild improvisations while Mr. Neuringer, also a Philadelphia resident, has worked with many improvising artists in Europe and the USA.

This past Monday, I wrote about the upcoming (12/20/12) appearance of the Canadian world music/folk/gypsy swing/etc. group Sultans of String at Infinity Hall in Norfolk, CT.  Violinist Chris McKhool and guitarist Kevin Laliberte opened for singer/songwriter Livingston Taylor in October impressing the audience and Hall ownership with their lively blend of musical styles and technical prowess.  Originally, I figured they would be touring with the quintet of musicians that appear on their CD, "Move" - instead, Messrs. McKhool and Lalaiberte will be making the 10 hour trip from their homes in Toronto, Ontario, Canada along with bassist Drew Birston.  I had a pleasant chat today with the violinist and he assured the music will be just as complex as one hears on the CDs (you can hear our chat this Sunday (12/16) at 11 a.m. on WLIS-1420 AM in Old Saybrook and WMRD-AM 1150 in Middletown. Hopefully our new "stream" will be up at  For tickets to the show, go to
