At their last show here in July, Trio Traumatica found themselves pretty deep underground…and they liked it.  A lot.  As did the audience.  So much so that the eclectic trio has been invited back to spelunk the musical depths once again.  They shall again return to this fine, funky and alternative universe that resides deep underground at the elegantly rustic Gedney Farm restaurant in the quaint New England village of New Marlbourough (we still have no idea where Old Marlborough is, but we'll keep looking).  The quixotic, sometimes slightly unhinged, trio will once again venture forth deep into the Underground to see what can be seen and do what can be done.  And then some.  Why not come along?  We guarantee you'll be glad you did!

Naumkeag
"Naumkeag at Night" Sunset Concert Series - 5 - Sunset
5 Prospect Hill St.
Stockbridge, MA 01262 [map]
Price: Free


David Reed & Sam Earnshaw - aka TuTu Much - have been invited back for their third show of the 2015 season to the wonderful grounds of the Naumkeag mansion for the much heralded sunset-with-a-view concert series.  

Naumkeag, a beautiful Queen Anne-style mansion and park, was build in 1886 and was the summer home to the Choate family from New York.  The grounds invite you to walk and wonder...and the house, as per request of the Choate family, is left in exactly the same, untouched manner it was the day that it was given over to the Trustees of the Reservation in 1958. 

History may actually stand still here, but the TuTu's eclectic music does not.  Come and enjoy a picnic supper, partake in tidbits and libations.  It's just like Tanglewood, only smaller.  Much smaller.  And the 'band' ain't as big.

Sheffield Fair
TuTu Much Plays Fair - 3-4PM

Price: Free

TuTu Much (aka David Reed & Sam Earnshaw) will pack up their ol' kit bag and head on out to the Sheffield Fair (in the town park, right off Main St./Rt. 7 in Sheffield, MA 01257) for to play fair with the fair-goers, for 3-4PM that afternoon.  Because David is from Sheffield and the cigar box guitars he makes are from Sheffield, fair promoters wanted to give him a fair shake and a spot on the program (which is not the same as a blight).  They will likely be playing their eclectic mix of reggae/calypso and raunchy cigar box blues in the Pavillion, unless their decorum warrants being out in the pens with the livestock.  But that wouldn't be fair, would it?

What could be more "New England" than a summer's eve bandstand concert in the town park?  Well, suppose we'll have to see, especially when Trio Traumatica does its thing.  You can watch cigar boxes, guitars, saxes, a grand pinaner and lots of drums (and a suitcase!) COLLIDE in a shower of sparkling, sonic bombast with an eclectic and diverse repertoire of country blues, Caribbean calypso, recycled jazz, original folkrock and rastaman reggae.  You can be reasonably certain there will be no J.P. Sousa marches in the bandstand on this night!  Bring your friends and your friends' friends.  And a picnic.  Food is good.

5 Prospect Hill Rd.
Stockbridge, MA 01262 [map]

David Reed returns for his 2nd year to the wonderful grounds of the Naumkeag mansion for the first of three solo, sunset-with-a-view concerts.  This beautiful Queen Anne-style mansion and park was build in 1886 and was the summer home to the Choate family from New York.  The grounds invite you to walk and wonder...and the house, as per request of the Choate family, is left in exactly the same, untouched manner it was the day that it was given over to the Trustees of the Reservation.  History actually stands still, but David does not.  Come and enjoy a picnic supper, partake in tidbits and libations.  It's just like Tanglewood, only smaller.  Much smaller.  And the 'band' ain't as big.

Alford (MA) Land Trust Family Picnic
David Reed - Solo - 12:30 - 2:30PM
Rt. 71/Crooked Hill Rd.
Alford, MA 01230 [map]
Price: Donation

David has been asked to play his solo show under a big tree way out in a large field in the remote, pastoral town of Alford (MA) for the Alford Land Trust's annual family picnic.  This gig resulted from having been heard a couple of weeks ago playing in a large barn.  Dr. Easy notices that there's a trend here: The shows are migrating from restaurants/clubs to barns to fields.  He wonders where next - under water? Let's hope there's no lightning…or bulls.   It should be real fun.
