  "Boundless Music for Boundless Minds" curated by Glatter/Hubbard


  Welcome to the Fall 2008 - Spring 2009 Season of New Sounds Downtown


  THURSDAY, October 2nd, 2008 - 8PM

Bill Barrett - chromatic harmonica
Scot Ray - slide guitar, dobro, 6 & 12 string, 22 string chaturangui, slide banjo

“Ray and Barrett fruitfully elevate roots-inspired thematic forays into boundless frontiers for the mind’s eye...all subsidized by monster chops and acute vision. The musicians’ close working relationship and intuitive understanding of each other's thought processes connect mightily. Sparks fly throughout! Zealously recommended.” - All About Jazz, LA
