Got any plans this Saturday evening?

Rob Hinst and I will be playing live music as The Scrivening Bartlebys this SATURDAY, SEPT. 16, at House of Brews in Port Jefferson, NY.

It’s a blink-and-you’ll-miss-it set, from 6:30 to 7:00 pm (but if you stick around afterwards, you’ll be treated to acoustic magic by musician/wordsmith Paul Rosevear). You don’t even need a babysitter—kids welcome. 

What is it? Let’s call it…Sultry Covers. Rob on guitar. Me singing & playing viola.

Playing at the Brickhouse Brewery in Patchogue

The history: Back when we started dating at age 14, I played viola in the school orchestra, sang in the stairwell, and Rob could play, like, the guitar riff from “Smoke on the Water.” Then I got into traditional Irish music and sea songs, and started singing and playing at festivals and whaling museums. Meanwhile, Rob was secretly acquiring delicious guitar skills. We started playing covers of contemporary indie/folky songs (or whatever strikes our fancy) together. Now our favorite thing to do after the kids fall asleep is share a glass of wine and sneak out our instruments…and once in a while, we come out of the shadows and do a little show.

We only do this once in a blue moon… Hope you’ll sneak out with us.
