The Foggy Mountain Consort mixes old instruments with contemporary ones, along with old styles in a fresh approach, in their bluegrass and traditional North American rhythms. This unusual band also performs early music, long forgotten songs, romping bluegrass, and new music inspired by old styles. Rich textures from the lute, banjo, violone (Renaissance double bass), violin, guitar, and voices. They like to say, “Old is new, new is old.” Join us in dancing or just listening in this showcase of some knee-slapping local entertainment and artistry. Tickets, $15 for adults; $10 for seniors, students, and Historic Newton members. Purchase tickets at historicnewton.org, by calling 617-641-9142, or at the door. Advance purchase is advised.
