Broadcloth makes it to The Stone in Alphabet City, NYC

My Cello teacher’s trio,Broadcloth, has made it to “The Stone” described by many as “ A not for profit space for the Experimental and Avant-Garde”. Its location in Alphabet city talks a ton about its vitality and dedication to up and new musicians.

Broadcloth is:

Anne Rhodes on Voice,
Nathan Bontrager on Cello and
Adam Matlock on Accordion/Recorders

The trio played a set of 5 pieces of their free improv music to the Big Apple crowd. They were accompanied towards the end by the remarkable sound of the Stone’s heater!

1- Free Improv piece

2- Windows and Walls

3- Introductus

4-In Stitches

5- Free Improv finale

The following is a playlist that has all the pieces in order instead of navigating through individual clips:
