(HUDSON, N.Y.) – Fiddles, banjos, acoustic guitars, mandolins, kazoos, and hand percussion will abound when Club Helsinki Hudson features a mini-festival of old-time American roots music featuring a triple-bill of 13 Strings and a Two Dollar Bill, Intuitive Compass, and the Lost Dog Street Band, on Friday, July 11, at 9pm. Among the three groups, attendees are likely to hear a variety of early 20th century sounds and styles, including ragtime, jug band, hot jazz, old-timey, high lonesome, cowboy songs, and country blues.

13 Strings and a Two Dollar Bill is a traveling duet created by the stomping, banjo pickin’ Tomcat Wyatt Yurth along with the Notorious Nora Jean, based in Asheville, N.C.

Intuitive Compass, featuring Jason O’Dea on vocals, resophonic guitar, harmonica, kazoo, and bass drum, and Aurelia Cohen on accordion, vocals, cornet, service bells, washtub bass, was formed in the North Bay area in early 2011, and recently relocated to Ashland, Oregon.

Lost Dog Street Band began when a songwriter from Tennessee and a fiddle player from South Dakota began playing busking on the streets of the Pacific Northwest.
