The Mayflies

Tuesday, March 9, 2010

Proud to announce the arrival of a new Mayfly!

Hey folks,

The Mayflies' have experienced a couple of line-up changes in the past year, and we have been on hiatus all winter working these new members into the mix. As spring arrives, we will be performing more and more, so keep an ear to the ground.

We have added Gabriel Baillergeon on mandolin, and Natallie Brown on violin!

Gabe comes to us from Springville Iowa. He has grown up playing music with his father, Richard (an accomplished member of the Waubeek Trackers) and is currently a music student. Gabe brings a healthy dose of bluegrass, old country, and folk to the mix. He is influenced by the likes of John Prine, Gram Parsons, and Split Lip Reyfield among others. Plus he's a damn nice kid.

Natalie is a native Iowa Citian who grew up studying classical violin but broke off from the Suzuki mold to ravenously pursue jazz, traditional fiddle music and rock music. She has a classical player's chops and musical knowledge, but can improvise effortlessly with a wide musical pallete. She even plays her violin thru a Wha pedal sometimes. Wow.

Needless to say, we are thrilled about the new sounds being created in the basement reheasal space and we can't wait to share it with you all. Our nest show is Sunday March 28th at El Bait Shop in Des Moines.
