Visit Finnirver on Sunday, February 27 from 2-4pm to see and hear the music of Chris Miller (saxophone/banjo) and Matt Sircely (mandolins/guitars). For years, they taught, cooked, danced and performed together at Blackpot Camp in South Louisiana. They even recorded one of Sircely’s songs in a local studio. Now, Chris Miller lives nearby and they are joining forces for their first duo performance in recorded history. Last year, the two appeared at Finnriver in a trio with expert songwriter McKain Lakey.
Chris Miller plays a smooth and sweet clawhammer banjo, yet in the broader world he’s known as “the glue” in the famed Revelers band from Louisiana. A native of Jacksonville, Florida, Chris has traveled the continent as the Revelers’ saxophonist, his fiery tone and swamp pop sensibilities resonating at major festivals and events in North America and Europe.
Matt Sircely’s performances feature mandolin, guitar, four-string tenor guitar, and a catalog of original songs. Best known for his work as a founding member of Hot Club Sandwich, a Django-inspired ensemble in Seattle, and a leading acoustic jazz band in the US for more than a decade, Sircely started as a songwriter and has since created an ever-broadening catalog of original material. Sircely’s musical tapestries tap into the histories behind the songs, and his interests span the worlds of folk and fiddle music, classic blues and country, vintage swing and bluegrass and roots music from around the world.
