Tree House Charlatans
Start with Tails & Tales: Story and Art at Sawyer Free Library at 3:00 pm.
The Gloucester-based Tree House Charlatans represent a musical ensemble loosely based around a didgeridoo and a tree house. The original Tree House Charlatan is Matt Natti- musician (didgeridoodler, banjo, hand drums, etc), arborist, artist, and outdoor enthusiast. What started with a didge, a stand-up bass, and a hand drum has ebbed and flowed (depending on the weather, the day of the week, the lunar cycle and whether the groundhog sees his shadow) to include mandolin, more percussion than you can shake a termite hollowed stick at, flutes, violins, random vocals, trumpets, guitars, banjos, harmonicas, even a melodica and a kalimba. The music ranges from eclectic world/jazz to sing along folk/rock to bluegrass gone wild.
