In addition to the performance by James Reams & The Barnstormers on Friday night, here’s the 2018 lineup of musical guests for Saturday night. A special thanks to our sponsors: the Folk Music Society of NY and The Old Stone House for making this event possible.
Two Lazy Aces
The Lazy Aces began as an old-time string band trio whose music ranged from Appalachian ballads to Honky Tonk to modal melodies and breakdowns. They performed at the Philadelphia Folk Festival, the Clearwater Festival, the Brandywine Mountain Music Festival and elsewhere and recorded “Still Lazy After All These Years” for the Marimac label.
Though the larger-format Lazy Aces is no longer active, founding members Dave Howard and Bill Christophersen have continued to play together as a duo. They were featured at Pinewoods Folk Music Camp’s American Week and, at the New York Folk Music Society’s Memorial Day weekend retreat, where they performed old-time tunes and country songs drawn from the likes of Gid Tanner’s Skillet Lickers, the Carter Family, Fiddlin’Arthur Smith, the Louvin Brothers, Lefty Frizzell and Ray Price
