Concert Window goes live in Boston

A new video streaming service has recently launched in Boston. Concert Window was designed to offer live concerts, and is managed by Dan Gurney and Forrest O’Connor from The Hay Brigade, whose debut CD we profiled last month.

They held their first two online shows last week, streaming live from the legendary Club Passim in Cambridge, MA (their fair city). Dan tells us that their debut, featuring Boston’s bluegrass sweethearts, Della Mae, drew an audience of 850 people online. Not bad for first time out of the gate.

Tonight’s (12/1) show features The Bee Eaters, another of Beantown’s innovative young string bands who perform adventurous original instrumental music for banjo, hammered dulcimer, violin and cello. Simon Chrisman is on dulcimer with Crooked Still’s Tristan Clarridge on cello/fiddle, his sister Grand Masters champ Tashina on fiddle, and Wes Corbett from Joy Kills Sorrow on banjo.

Here’s a taste of their music…

You can watch The Bee Eaters live tonight at 8:00 p.m. (EST) at, streaming again from Club Passim. More shows are being added, which will be listed on the site.
