“A soundtrack to the folktales your great-grandparents vowed to forget,” Naked Lore is led by trumpeter/composer Ben Holmes. The music flows between sinuous klezmer-based melodies and improvisations inspired by everything from Balkan brass band music to Olé Coltrane, with other treats and oddities thrown in along the way. This special duo performance is stripped down to trumpet and the guitar of Brad Shepik. The wordless stories they tell are by turns sinister, sweet, majestic, mischievous, rampaging and ruminative.
