Junkman's Quire celebrate Robbie Burns Day with music


 Local jazz/ folk / world music band The Junkman’s Quire celebrated  Robbie Burns Day at the Owl Acoustic lounge without  playing one single Scottish song or reciting a single Robbie Burns poem. At least not in the set I saw, Jan. 25.

  The trimmed down band including  upright bassist Steve Martin, bekilted frontman/ cellist/guitarist George Fowler, drummer Isaac neufeld and fiddler/ guitarist/vocalist Megan Brown played a variety of original songs and  popular covers.

 Brown added her song “Work For the Devil” to the set and was singing most of the lead vocals for  the second set, jumping between guitar and fiddle.
