Red Newt welcomes Richie Stearns in the Bistro on Black Friday – November 23rd for 5pm Happy Hour.
no cover, no reservations, wine, beer and Happy Hour Bistro menu!
He’s been described as one of the major innovators of 5-string banjo playing, a wonderfully idiosyncratic musician. Fellow musician Tony Trischka calls him“a transcendentally clawhammering force of nature” and Bela Fleck says simply, “Richie is a wonderful musician. I love his mantra-groove spooky-banjo style.” For Natalie Merchant, it’s his ability to blend traditional technique and rertoire with contemporary and original material that sets him apart: says Natalie, “I have been amazed by Richie Stearns’ musicianship…the banjo in his hands can become either a hypnotic weapon of propulsion or the source of some of the most soulful and plaintive sounds I have ever heard.”
