Friday June 10th – miniBrass Mask + Josephine Davies Trio


We’re back with another fantastic lineup!

Brass Mask

Tom Challenger / George Crowley – tenors

Dan Nicholls – keys

Ruth Goller – bass

John Blease / Jon Scott – drums / percussion

Led by reedsman Tom Challenger (Outhouse, Fofoulah, Red Snapper), Brass Mask is a powerhouse of percussion and horns delivering loping riffs, growling basslines and the old-time spiritual groove. This gig marks the debut of a slightly paired-down setup which also welcomes the powerful bass of Ruth Goller (Melt Yourself Down, Acoustic Ladyland, Let Spin) to the fray for a foray into New Orleans mardi-gras celebration and Haitian RaRa. The cellar will sing!
