FiddleBox at 9 pm, CelloJoe at 10 pm
FiddleBox combines oldtime fiddle/banjo music with beatboxing.

CelloJoe will be dropping beats for creative, conscious, collaborative cypher flows as well of doing some of his tunes.
CelloJoe is an anomaly in the world of cellists.
By combining cello with beatboxing, he has created a unique genre: classical hip hop. Looped and layered beatboxing beats (vocal percussion) and funky cello form a rich soundscape for intelligent lyrics; CelloJoe spreads joy, laughter and consciousness raising vibrations.

CelloJoe rides his bicycle with his cello and has traveled from San Francisco, California to the bottom of Mexico; from Portland, OR to Vancouver, BC; from Logan to Provo, Utah; and in England, Holland, Germany, Czech Republic, Austria, Hungary, Slovenia, Croatia, Italy, France, and Spain with the Pleasant Revolution.
