Playing Live at Shoot the Crows every
Tuesday • 10PM
NoCrows is an eclectic gathering of musicians from different cultures and influences. NoCrows repertoire is truly global as their music ranges from Portugal to Moldova, from Brittany to Russia, from Venezuela to Greece and beyond. Always on the lookout for a good tune, the band borrows from the classical oeuvre as it does from jazz, trad, folk and world music as well as the band members own compositions.
Mallorcan guitarist Felip Carbonell with his flamenco/manouche style guitar provides the engine for the band’s exciting and stylish music. The bands melodies arrive on the wings of the violin, mandolin and cello. The cello and mandolin are played by Anna Houston. Anna’s Swiss/Celtic roots are apparent in her intricate and soulful playing. Steve Wickham of ‘the Waterboys’ and Oleg Ponomarev are the violinists. Steve's energetic style and repertoire adds spice to NoCrows while Oleg's gypsy virtuosic playing brings the band eastwards. Eddie Lee provides the hot grooves on his double bass. Eddie is a well respected musician and well known for his work with the Cafe Orchestra among others.
