The Tool Gypsies to perform at 333 Coffeehouse

333coffeehouseThe 333 Coffeehouse, Annapolis’ monthly listening space for folk and acoustic music, is pleased to present a concert by The Tool Gypsies.

The Tool Gypsies are a quartet of highly individual musicians based in Easton, MD. Together they play an eclectic mixture of original jazz compositions and foreign language classics – mainly “gypsy” music and romantic songs from countries in which the Rom sound has had a strong influence. Most of our originals are written and arranged by guitar savant Curt Heavey.  Multilingual chanteuse Susan Dabney sings French chansons, Spanish rancheros, tragic Rumanian love songs, Serbian drinking songs, Portuguese fado, and anything Romani. Dabney and multi-instrumental talent Stephen Gerni play smoking violin duets ranging from klezmer to Brazilian styles, while bassist Chris Levey’s solid groove provides “the backbone.”

Says Dabney, “We play what we love, and since people seem to really like it although it’s unusual, it works for us.”

Now in its 24th year, the 333 Coffeehouse is an acoustic concert series held the third Friday of each month at the Annapolis Friends Meeting House. It features traditional folk performers and songwriters. 333 is listener-centered, volunteer powered, non-profit, and smoke- and alcohol-free. Inexpensive hot and cold beverages, desserts and snacks are offered. With an intimate performance space and a modest admission price, 333 is a great entertainment value.

333 is a program of the Annapolis Traditional Dance Society, an Annapolis 501(c)(3) non-profit supporting tradition-based music and dance.
