SpYder Stompers and Sugar Pie @ BOP STOP

May 12 from 8:00pm - 11:00pm

SpYder Stompers and Sugar Pie @ BOP STOP

Nearly 30 years ago, Jack DiAlesandro and Kevin T. Richards started performing traditional American music. Ray DeForest joined the group a decade ago. Jack is a finger style guitar master and works as a professor of Mathematics at Kent State. Kevin plays mandolin, fiddle, and various guitar styles and directs a non-profit organization called the Roots of American Music. Raymond is an acoustic bass genius who performs and teaches jazz, blues, and nearly any style of music. We cannot forget Sheela Das (Sister Sugar Pie) who provides vocals, ukulele, and washboard to the mix.

The music on the Spyder Stompers' reflects a time in history that began with the start of the 20th century and lasted nearly 50 years. It’s music that was played by string bands, blues musicians and the ragtime style of the piano.
