The Pinhook Favicon

Joseph Decosimo / Luke Richardson / Cleep Shrey + Alice Gerrard

All Ages
Saturday, July 20
Doors: 6:30pm Show: 7pm
Durham record release show for “Beehive Cathedral”— Joseph Decosimo, Luke Richardson, and Cleek Schrey’s exploration of the ring, buzz, and hum of Southern traditional music. Durham’s own Alice Gerrard will be joining the show as well.
Working with fiddle, hardanger d’amore (a fiddle with sympathetic strings), banjos, and pump organ, the new recording captures both the sonic details of their instruments and a generous musical interplay rooted in a dozen years of collaboration. The results showcase deep study and enveloping, exhilarating performances filled with tonal ambiguity, drone, and bittersweet dissonance.
The members of the trio are veteran performers in the Old-time scene, where they’ve worked with renowned string bands The Bucking Mules and Bigfoot. Beehive Cathedral draws on the group’s experiences making music together at Southern fiddlers’ conventions, in the back of NYC pubs, on stages, and in their homes. It also sources energy from their broader musical lives, in Durham, NYC, and Tennessee.
