MUSIC June 22: Outrageous Fortune is a Boston-based acoustic vintage jazz and blues trio. Their repertoire features innovative arrangements of early jazz (Duke Ellington and Louis Armstrong); blues and jug band music (Robert Johnson and the Memphis Jug Band); and traditional folk music.
The group features Chris Welles on guitar; Rod Thomas on harmonica; and Dan Dick on jug, bass, washboard, dobro, banjo, and mandolin. Audiences are wowed by their instrumental virtuosity and are delighted by their smooth three-part vocal harmonies, their strong groove, and the abundant joy that infuses every performance.
Outrageous Fortune has been bringing smiles to New England audiences since 1998 at coffeehouses, festivals, clubs, public libraries, and private events.
