Appearing Sunday in New York: Gene Yellin, Bill Christophersen and Mark Farrell

New York fiddler Bill Christophersen just sent out this announcement:

Dear Folks,

Gene Yellin (guitar), Mark Farrell (mandolin) and Bill Christophersen (fiddle), joined by Ethan Kende (bass), invite you to come hear a newly formed ensemble of old friends. The material is mostly old-style bluegrass with a focus on trio singing. The venue, new to the bluegrass and old-time scene, is a comfortable room in McKenna's Pub. There is no cover charge; light fare (hamburgers, chili, etc.) is available. We hope to see you there.

Date: Sunday, December 14
Time: 5pm to 7pm
Place: McKenna's Pub, at 250 W. 14th St, NYC (between 7th & 8th Aves., nearer 8th, south side of steet)
Phone: (212) 255-2889

This trio performed as party of my 10th Anniversary Party back in May, and they put on a great show. I can think of no better way to enjoy a Sunday afternoon than going to see these guys play and -- this is important, too -- supporting a new venue for bluegrass music in New York.
