Description:
The Newport Jamboree continues their 2019 Jamboree Series with their June event featuring the music of the Eight Point Star and The Jugbusters on Saturday, June 22, 2019 at the Newport Community Park.

Enjoy old time and bluegrass music by the Sinking Creek.

Eight Point Star is the newest musical incarnation of Mike Gangloff, Cara Gangloff and Matt Peyton, created to solidify and expand music that Mike and Cara and Mike and Matt have performed as they toured across Europe and around the southeastern United States.

With hardanger fiddle, hurdy-gurdy, banjos, gongs, singing bowls and lots more, this is a mostly acoustic sound, but with Matt's theremin and other electronics occasionally rising to the surface sometimes from the Golden Age jazz or Great American Songbook classics that Cara grew up singing, sometimes from the urgent, raw blues that Matt has pursued and sometimes from pure, free improvisation aimed at creating an in-the-moment symphony. This is extended Appalachian music with a story of its own to tell.

Solid, bluesy fingerstyle guitar and soaring, scratchy hardanger fiddle combine for duo explorations; a search for beauty.
