October 21 Concert - Border Lord - 7:00 p.m.
Ohnward Fine Arts Center, 1215 E. Platt St., Maquoketa IA
Seen and heard on PBS’ Living in Iowa and at radio shows, festivals and concerts throughout the U.S., folk trio Border Lord performs traditional and contemporary American and Celtic ballads, lovely instrumental airs, jigs, reels, and compelling original songs written by harper/harpmaker and Columbia Recording Artist Rick Stanley. This Boston native has entertained all over the world with his rich "Cat Stevens" voice, charming humor, and versatile Irish harp. Rick has performed with Ry Cooder, Paul Horn, Glen Campbell, Steven Stills, and many others. A multi-instrumentalist, Rick also performs on guitar, banjo and accordion.
Robin Pfoutz began his music training in classical cello at St. Olaf and Carleton Colleges. After college he co-founded acoustic folk rock group Big Lost Rainbow. His more recent work has included an eclectic mix of jazz, Celtic, folk, classical and blues. Robin has performed with Paul Horn, Livingston Taylor, Pete Seeger and the James Montgomery Blues Band. The Oracle of Orleans, MA, noted that his cello “see-sawed like a violin at a hoe-down, purred a deep bass, or pranced pizzicato” as it swirled into a “quiet folk, a jivey jazz or a strident rock sound.” Combined with Claudine Stanley on rhythmic bodhran, Border Lord’s chamber-folk music is a unique and entertaining blend of many traditions.
Joining Border Lord is guest performer Tara Dutcher. A fiddler from the age of 3, Tara's unique style blends her Irish and bluegrass family roots with her classical and jazz training. Tickets are $10.00 and available at the Ohnward Box Office (563-652-9815) or Osterhaus Pharmacy (563-652-5611). http://www.ohnwardfineartscenter.com
