After a two year hiatus, notloB returns to its first home, the historic (c. 1760) Loring Greenough House in Jamaica plain!
In a way this is a DOUBLE homecoming as TRI's founder, Doug Lamey, grew up on Greenough Ave.
Tri specializes in foot tapping Celtic folk music, excelling at the music, song and dance of Nova Scotia.
Nimbly handling fiddle duties is Doug Lamey. Doug, grandson of Boston fiddling legend Bill Lamey, is one of the area's most sought after Celtic fiddlers. Doug has studied with some of the greats from the Cape Breton tradition (Buddy MacMaster) and Irish scene (Tommy Peoples). http://www.douglamey.com/
With the addition of award winning bagpiper Matthew Phelps, the band's musical horizons have expanded in countless ways. For more on Matt visit: http://www.massbagpiper.com/
Cliff McGann, the band's MC, plays guitar, tin whistle and sings in both English and Scottish Gaelic. He has a Masters degree in Folklore from Memorial University of Newfoundland.
Suggested donation $15- at the door; $12- if made at least 24 hours in advance; $10- for students and seniors; $30- max for families. Addition of a $1/person “preservation fee” that goes to the Loring Greenough House.
Seating is limited to 45, reservations are strongly recommended - notlobreservations @ gmail.com
"In this era of pop-driven acoustic music, notloB is keeping the folk tradition alive." ~ Jack Hardy
“"From a musician's perspective, I really appreciate the effort Jeff puts into his shows. Nobody on the Boston folk scene works harder to pull a concert together."
~ Alastair Moock, in an article written by Jonathan Perry, published in The Boston Globe

Not-for-profit notloB folk concerts are run by volunteer power.
Re-starting the JP series at the historic Loring Greenough House in Jamaica Plain will require a pool of dedicated
people living in/near JP. Opportunities also exist for concerts
presented at the Unity Church of God in Somerville.
Will you help?
Need: publicity, hospitality, set-up/take-down.
