The Insiders: Listen to some old music without the use of a time machine
Can you hear that? Those groovin’ sounds filling your ear canals are the very first practice of the newly formed Insiders, a classic rock band that consists of Keith on the keytar and kazoo, and Tim rocking out on the sarrusophone and trongos.
And in the case that you actually can hear it, which would be incredible since we practice in a heavily padded sound proof room that is buried under ground in an old bomb shelter we discovered during our trip outside of the city limits a few weeks ago, you might want to go ahead and just shut the windows. Believe us, this is not a musical experiment you want to witness.
That’s why we typically leave the creation of musical fusion to the professionals like Bob Kilham. Kilham is a self-taught historical musician and vocalist, who focuses on period instruments like the banjo, fiddle, guitar, accordion and flute. He’s also set to perform “Music that Shaped a Nation” at the Pierce Manse (14 Horseshoe Pond Lane) tonight at 7.
It’s not everyday you get to take a step back in time and listen to the music of yesteryear, but Kilham will do just that as he re-creates the sights and sounds of Pierce-era America.
The evening festivities are free and open to the public.
