Jazz-based Joe Holt’s guest in June is Nate Grower, fiddle player for performing artist superstar David Bromberg. He is perhaps best known on the Eastern Shore as the fiddle player for Kent County's favorite bluegrass band, the High and Wides. Expect an interesting exchange of genres.
During Nate's tenure with Bromberg’s band, he has toured throughout the United States, Australia and Japan. In the process, he's played with a steady stream of musical guests, including the late Allen Toussaint, Ladysmith Black Mambazo, John Oates (of Hall and Oates), Sam Bush, Keb Mo and Arlo Guthrie.
When Joe Holt was seven years old, his family moved from his boyhood home in Kentucky, to settle in New Jersey. His parents acquired a spinet piano, and the young boy's course was set. But, in Joe's words "If I had grown up in Kentucky, I probably would have ended up a bluegrass musician". Was that on Joe's mind when he invited Nate Grower to join him on stage at the Mainstay? What certainly was on his mind was that both he and Nate are natural improvisers The show promises to be "a multi genre evening of musical fireworks." So let the fireworks begin!
