Seven Times Salt is a Boston-based early music ensemble specializing in repertoire of the 16th and 17th centuries. Praised for creative programming and an “impeccably balanced sound” we delight in blurring the lines between “art music” and folk tunes, and feel at ease performing in the concert hall, the dance hall, or the beer hall!

Expect a fun selection of English Country Dances, 17th Century divisions, Irish and Scottish tunes, an perhaps a few Jewish selections in honor of the venue.

Dan Meyers: recorders, flutes, bagpipes and percussion

Choose to Find + Neil Pearlman's Fiddle Jam

10 Willow Ave., Somerville (see map on right)
Band Contact: Todd Marston
Saturday, May 17 2:00 PM - 4:00 PM

Choose to Find is an unconventional rock group that uses a combination of acoustic piano and electric guitar as the primary melodic voices. This configuration has helped Choose to Find carve their own spot somewhere in between the post-rock and jazz genres.

Pianist and mandolinist Neil Pearlman is rapidly distinguishing himself as a uniquely innovative artist in the contemporary traditional music scene. Called “a tremendous pianist” on BBC Radio Scotland and “a force to be reckoned with” by WGBH’s Brian O’Donovan, Neil is recognized in many Celtic music circles for his unique approach to the piano.
