If you were listening this past Saturday (the 9th), you’d have heard Ruth Rappaport and son Ben Wetherbee tearin’ up Studio BC with some fine fiddle tunes and songs. It was a lot of fun, and since they were nice enough to come down and entertain this weary DJ, I thought I should give them a little more billing here on the blog. Here’s the info from the Country Callendar page:
Ruth Rappaport and Ben Wetherbee will be playing a show at The Burren’s back room on Friday, December 15, from 7:00-9:00 p.m. Raucous old-time fiddling and heartfelt songs by a mother-and-son duo. 247 Elm Street, Davis Square, Somerville. For more info. call (617) 776-6896 or go to http://www.theburren.com.
Here they are from YouTube, playing the Lee Highway Blues:
Go by and tell ’em you heard them on Hillbilly at Harvard! /CL
