Postcrypt Flashback

As I continue to do research on Tony Trischka, I came across this Postcrypt schedule from the spring of 1993:

Saturday, May 1

KIM FOREHAND -- She comes all the way from Kansas to play Postcrypt on her way to the Nameless Coffeehouse in Boston. She's recently had a lot of airplay on the World Cafe radio show. Her newest release is entitled "Cinderella's Song."

TONY TRISCHKA -- Postcrypt welcomes back Tony Trischka, an old friend of the Coffeehouse who also played at our 25th Anniversary Benefit Concert in 1989. His latest recording on Rounder Records features solo and joint works with his former student, Bela Fleck. In addition, he has also recorded over 15 other records, both solo and with the bands Skyline and Country Cooking. He is also a highly respected session musician, and has appeared on Mountain Stage, Prairie Home Companion, and TNN. Time Magazine calls Tony an "urban bluegrass whiz," and the Washington Post has written about his "scintillating picking."

THE METROTONES -- Columbia-grown women's a capella at its finest need we say more?

Somewhat of a strange pairing to have Tony Trischka back-to-back with an undergraduate a capella group, but also very cool to think of Tony playing away down in the basement of St. Paul's Chapel on the Postcrypt stage. (Current Postcrypt managers take note?)
