That’s Tom Reader and his trombone at the 24-Hour Music Project, which was a joy and a delight. I had no idea what to expect. I knew only that a bunch of songwriters wrote a bunch of songs one night and a bunch of musicians rehearsed them and played them the next night.
The range of styles and the immediacy of the tunes took us on a giddy roller-coaster into the great beyond. What a ride.
It should be noted, for those of you who don’t know, that Peterborough is absolutely teeming with accomplished and talented musicians, such as Kate LeDuce, above, who are well versed in whipping together a set of perfectly enjoyable music at the drop of a hat (or a few beers, if you have them).
