Moon Over Mendocino
With handfuls of acoustic instruments, using time-tested methods of counterfeiting, stealing and cultural plundering, the BKO presents traditional music of Greece, the Balkans and the old-time South. OK, some of it they made up themselves (that's the counterfeiting), but the sources for the rest are impeccable. Songs are in English. HANK BRADLEY Fiddle champion turned bouzouki player, writes music and songs. FRANNIE LEOPOLD Musically diverse singer, guitarist, and actually lives in Mendocino. CATHIE WHITESIDES Long-time Bay Area dance player, one of a kind soaring soulful fiddle, writes music and songs.
