Kerry Grombacher & The Wall-Eyed Moles
by Evan Kory –
Kicking off our Friday evening series, we were enchanted by the poetic folk-western songs of Kerry Grombacher and The Wall-Eyed Moles. Kerry, a prolific guitar and mandolin player shared a beautiful set of his original songs featuring “The Edge of the World”, “Dreams of New Orleans” and “Wild West Mambo”.
The Wall-Eyed Moles gave us a completely new sound we had not yet experienced in the Opera House, a cappella three-part harmony. Their expressive music making was very soothing with songs such as “Me and the Eagle”. As an encore John Messenger sang a very funny and clever selection titled “A Song About Nothing”.
