Artist Max ZT Organizer Casey Rothstein-Fitzpatrick Join us on Saturday, August 31st from 2-4 pm for a pool party and Concert by the amazing NYC trio House of Waters! A BBQ Lunch will be served and the pool will be open before and after the concert. House of Waters’ music is both complex and easy to enjoy, a musical exploration that invites listeners to open themselves to new sounds. One of those sounds is that of Max’s instrument, the hammered dulcimer, a percussion/stringed instrument that takes years of study and spans dozens of cultures around the globe. Most often associated with traditional American and Irish folk music, Max has taken the instrument in entirely new directions. “I’ve been playing it since I was 7,” says Max. “And my folks reminded me I first fell in love with it when I was 2: I saw it performed at an exhibit opening, walked up to it, sat underneath and just listened to it for hours.” “In today's world, there are no musical boundaries,” says Max ZT of ‘House of Waters,’ a trio that makes those words come alive as they incorporate elements of West-African, jazz, psychedelic, indie rock, classical and world music into their astonishingly unique sound. With musical and cultural influences that stretch from India and Senegal through Ireland and the heart of New York City, you have, as one critic noted, “The most original band on the planet.” <><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><> 12pm: Lunch & Pool Open / 2pm: Concert Starts Saturday August 31st Pine Grove Porch at Race Brook Lodge 864 South Undermountain road ( AKA Rt 41 ) Sheffield, MA Ticket price: $15 (plus booking fee) / $22 day of show <><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><>
