A Fiddle and a Song with Rick Manning, Tim Ball, and Naomi Sommers

Naomi is a singer-songwriter, guitar, banjo, mandolin, and flute player. Over the years Naomi has sung and played on more than 20 records and has recorded three albums under her own name, as well as one with the slow-grass duo Gray Sky Girls. Naomi’s album, “Gentle As The Sun”, was recorded in Nashville and produced by the acclaimed musician/producer Jim Rooney (John Prine, Iris Dement, Nanci Griffith, Bonnie Raitt). Gentle As the Sun is a testament to Naomi’s years of devotion to the craft of songwriting and a moving expression of contemporary bluegrass roots music. Naomi performs solo, with the Sommers-Rosenthal Band (her family band), with Lisa Bastioni and is releasing a new EP of original songs with Jefferson Hamer.
Rick plays fiddle and mandolin and has performed with Paris Texas, the Falling Waters Trio (Grietzer-Hodgson-Manning), the Contradictions and, formerly, Cornerstone in the Ithaca and Finger Lakes area. Rick has recorded five CD’s – three in Nashville with Cornerstone in the 1990’s and most recently two with the Falling Waters Trio. He is also the founder and director of both the Winter Village and Falling Waters Music Camps, both held during January at La Tourelle.
Tim Ball is known throughout upstate New York and beyond as a first-class fiddle player and guitarist with deep roots in traditional New England and Irish music. His current project, Upstate Crossroads, explores old fiddle tunes from all corners of New York State alongside repertoire drawn from the surrounding Irish-American, New England, Canadian, and Bluegrass traditions. Tim also performs with the acclaimed Celtic trio Arise & Go, Ithaca singer-songwriter Austin MacRae, and Ithaca's Irish session band Traonach. Well-known throughout the northeast as a contra dance musician, Tim has been a staff musician at the Ashokan Northern Gathering and American Dance & Music Week at Pinewoods. Drive-In LIVE Stage
