This concert marks Sleeping Bee’s first performance in Fredericksburg. Sleeping Bee combines the talents of bassist Lindsey Horner of jazz and multi-genre renown, multi-instrumentalist Andy Goessling of Railroad Earth, guitarist and singer Timothy Hill and percussionist Randy Crafton. While labels fall short, their music has been referred to as “Transcendent Acoustic” and exists in that unique early 21st century area where folk, jazz, Celtic song forms, melodic improvisation, and original ideas all happily co exist and vitalize each other. Sleeping Bee’s sound spans genres, and is both strikingly original yet hauntingly familiar.
Local treasure, award-winning guitarist and multi-instrumentalist, Bruce Middle, will play a solo, instrumental opening set. Bruce’s unique sound has captured the ear of an ever-expanding local, national and international audience. Nicknamed the “chameleon,” Bruce weaves a tapestry of sounds from classical to jazz, blues to country and bluegrass to funk.
