Jeff Raymond recalls: … when Einstein’s Little Homunculus came to Maine and wow, what a difference a little ole horn section makes! Their klezmer roots gave the band ‘s trad tunes a wallop unlike anything I’d heard ever.
It’s so easy to Google n YouTube ’em, there is no excuse to not give em a listen.
There’s been a lot of fantastic bands emerge in the scene through the decades I’ve been hanging about and I gotta say these folks still got it goin’ on, Come on out to Topsham Saturday give your feet n ears a treat.
Be well, see ya there, Jeff
