Regarding potential performers at SPAH, I recommend Clint Hoover, the
outstanding Minneapolis-based diatonic and chromatic multi-style player,
with or without his own band. Hoover is a fine jazz composer, and he
may be the best jazz harmonica player in the world. I mean it. His
old-timey diatonic work with the trio The Sugar Kings is also brilliant,
and perhaps Clint could be encouraged to bring that crew along too.
I also highly recommend James Conway, whose recent CD of Irish music is
terrifically played and recorded. Perhaps James could be induced to
host either or both of a seminar on Irish styles and an open Irish
seisun (is that how it's spelled?) with some of the players on his CD.
Could be fun.
Thanks, Richard Hunter
