Friday Night Live
Cabbage & Baggage is a small acoustic performance ensemble that formed in September of 2010. Olivia Frise (flute) and Bryan Brown (strings) made up the original duo, immediately finding common musical ground in a variety of acoustic styles.
Since June 2011, Sam Weiller has been rounding out the sound bottom on that big ol' bassoon. As an example of their versatility, their most recent gig featured traditional Irish tunes, modern bluegrass tunes, a song from the Lion King, John Mayer covers, and original tunes including jazz ballads, and pieces in an original genre that they like to call "newgrass romanticism". Performers: Bryan Brown: mandolin/banjo and vocals, Olivia Frise: Flute/vocals, Sam Weiller: Bassoon and vocals. Sponsored by UR Concerts. Part of Winterfest Weekend events.
