MUSIC ON THE WAY HOME WITH MEREDITH AXELROD
As the autumn leaves start to turn colour and fall, Meredith Axelrod provides an evening of music at the Arbor Gallery embracing her love of the early Americana style.
Axelrod grew up listening to old 78-rpm records and even some original wax cylinder recordings of Tin Pan Alley tunes, ragtime, and early boogie woogie. It influenced her own vocal style because “this is the way people learned to sing back then” between the late 1890s to the 1930s when all popular music was heard live, whether at a roadhouse, a fiddle party, the musical hall stage, or on the radio.
During her concerts, Axelrod brings her passion for early Americana music on stage, and in between songs shares little nuggets from a treasure trove of music and cultural folklore she has collected over the years. Along with her turn-of-the-last-century repertoire, Axelrod also offers up a selection of jug band, early jazz, and string band tunes gathered during her various live performances as part of her own jazz ensemble or performing together with the likes of 60s folk and jug band legend Jim Kweskin, and other solo artists like Frank Fairfield, Dan Hicks, Maria Muldaur, “Ramblin’” Jack Eliot, Cindy Cashdollar, and Robert Crumb.
The September 30 concert at the Arbor Gallery in Vankleek Hill starts at 7 p.m., with doors open at 6:30 p.m. Tickets available at the door or contact Pat Deacon at 613-6762829 or at email@example.com for advance ticket information.
