The Ants trademark country-soul sound – rich, soulful harmonies, stinging solos and a rock-solid rhythm section – captures that rare, loose-but-tight feel, and has won the band international as well as regional fans. http://www.carpenterants.net/

Rod Picot says, “Went to the Mountain Stage post show hang at The Empty Glass and listened to The Carpenter Ants…best gospel/bar band you’ve ever heard and yes, Gospel/Bar Band should be a Grammy category…”

To encourage creativity and fun, a table will be set up with coloring sheets with crayons and markers for anyone to make their own sugar skull art.

Show Description:
When we think of skulls we often think of death and mortality. Within American culture, the artistic evolution of the skull has often represented scary concepts and rebellious ideas. The skull can be both fascinating and gruesome. However, in recent years, the sugar skull has gained in popularity within American culture as an attractive symbol that in some ways has counteracted the skull’s traditionally ghoulish nature.

Laura studied Visual Communications at both The Art Institute of Pittsburgh and Westminster College where she received a Bachelor’s degree in Visual Arts Communications.

Aug 12: House Concert with Tom Mason. There’s a Pirate in the house!

tom mason
Tom Mason is an amazing musician, song-writer, and actor. Growing up in the Twin Cities Mason found an early love for music and theater. Watching his brothers and grandfather play guitar lit the flame early for Mason. He received a banjo at age seven, but by age eleven he was playing guitar in open tunings with a wine bottle neck. He practiced everyday and decided early in life that he wanted to be a performer.

At this time the acting bug bit Mason and he started taking acting classes. He has continued to act in plays throughout the country. Vaudeville and old Marx Brothers movies made a huge impression on Mason and he has continued to play the crafts and antics of these performers in his own shows and music.
