Watch for a new date… last night’s downpour flooded the Listening Room! What do you get when you cross conservatory-trained musicians with raucous bluegrass and the mega-hits of the 80s? LOVE CANON (intentionally spelled with one “N”) Think Rocky IV, Cyndi Lauper, Whitesnake and Dire Straits played with banjo, mandolin and high lonesome vocals. It’ll make ya laugh, it’ll make you dance, it’ll “blind you with science!” Love Canon is guitarist / singer Jesse Harper (of acoustic supergroup Old School Freight Train), bassist Darrell Muller and fiddler Nate Leath (also of OSFT), Adam Larrabee (banjo virtuoso), and Andy Thacker (bluegrass mandolin phenom).
