Alan Jabbour & Ken Perlman
Moore Music is proud to present Alan Jabbour and Ken Perlman in concert
on Saturday night, October 19, 2013.
Ken Perlman & fiddler Alan Jabbour present a program of Appalachian tunes, featuring most prominently the music Alan learned in the 1960s from his mentor, West Virginia fiddler Henry Reed. Stories that evoke the lives and cultural milieu of Reed and his contemporaries add an extra dimension to the presentation.
Alan and Ken have redefined that great American invention, the fiddle-banjo duet, and brought it to new heights of complexity. Alan's powerful fiddling style, with its syncopated bowing patterns and lyrical texture, is offset perfectly by Ken's inspired approach to clawhammer banjo, which explores chord inversions, harmony lines, voice leading, note-for-note playing, and counter-melody. Their performances testify to the grace, beauty, and power of Appalachian music.
Ken and Alan's recording together is called Southern Summits.
"For Old-Time music enthusiasts, Alan Jabbour and Ken Perlman are rock stars, without the microphones and trendy hair. With an impressive list of credentials, publications and awards, they have dedicated their lives to preserving and promoting traditional dance music from Scotland, Ireland, Eastern Canada and the American South. Their musicianship is par-none with Perlman weaving in and out of the melody with his precise melodic-style banjo and Jabbour lilting the time-honored tunes with his fiddle. The flawless delivery was direct and very personal, like a house concert and a fireside chat with good friends."
