The Parlor Sessions* are back for a fifth winter ...

Virginia-born Cleek Schrey is one of the world's few players of the hardanger d'amore, a uniquely designed violin with five strings that resonate sympathetically beneath the fingerboard to create a rich sound of pure beauty and depth. Like his instrument, Schrey's musical interests span centuries of tradition and repertoire. His music is a lifeline to the past, in keeping with a tight focus on the music of today. Schrey draws on fiddling practices from across the American South and introduces elements of improvisation and experimental composition. [Photo: Alex Fabry]

"A musician utterly at one with his instrument and his music." -- The Irish Times

" ... A rare combination of traits: deep respect for traditional music and the people who make it, and an unbounded curiosity about new directions for sound." -- Sound Post

*About the Parlor Sessions: On assorted winter Sundays we welcome American roots musicians in to the Parlor Room for a concert, some good hot soup, and an all-comers' jam. These Parlor Sessions, now in their fifth year, are our antidote to the dark of winter. They're a little like home, if home is a houseful of wicked great musicians. The Parlor Sessions are sponsored by Goat Peak Strings of Easthampton, where you can find rare, vintage, and handmade stringed instruments; and by generous donations from Captain Jack's Roadside Shack, Bread Euphoria, Hungry Ghost, and Florence Pie Bar.
