The NEW TWO CENTS STRING BAND
New configuration, playing on the patio at Uprise Bakery in the warm (that's a euphemism) summer evenings of 2010. Cliff White (River Ridge String Band) on guitar, and Jim Thaxter (a favorite contra dance caller) on banjer.
Two Cents (briefly in 2007) was Jim Thaxter on banjo, Vic Phelps on fiddle, sometimes Marcie McGuire on piano, Pippa on fiddle or mandolin. We all liked to play that goodoll fiddl'an'banjer music and... we're on YouTube.
"Turkey in the Straw" ain't never sounded better!
Here's a photo (with Frank Phelps who played mando with us for a while there).
