A couple months ago Ben Davis from Cuddlemagic contacted me about opening for their show at the House of Yes coming up this Friday. He then also asked me to join in on a few of their songs that they are currently recording and releasing soon. Not knowing much about the group at all, I said yes and was pleasantly surprised when we started working together. One thing I felt I related to them immediately was their play with rhythm and meters. I decided to contribute on toy piano, music box and also handbells.
Cuddlemagic is a Brooklyn and Philly-based group. They’ve been on tour for a couple of weeks now and is making their second to last appearance this Friday at the House of Yes. The Dustbusters will also be playing, a Brooklyn-based folk/roots music group. I hear that there will be a contra-dance following!
