Gideon Freudmann at Doverlaff, May 14, 2016

Gideon Freudmann HC Poster-001

Hello Music Fans, 

 
After another great show last week with David Jacob-Strain, Bob Beach and Caleb Paul we here at Doverlaff House Concerts are getting ready for out next show. Sure to be a great experience.  Gideon Freudmann, Cello-Bop master will bring his unique sound to our little stage.  Be sure to be there. 
 
This show will be a step out of the deep groove of Folk, Americana and Roots you usually expect from Doverlaff but we think you are going to love it.  We first heard Gideon at the old Mississippi Studios many years ago.  We were fascinated by his use of Cello, looper and effects pedals to produce a unique multi-layered sound that is nothing less than entrancing. 
 
We hope you enjoy the material below. Even more, we hope you can join us on Saturday, Ma 14 for what promises to be a fine evening of some unusual music from a master musician. Suggested donations for this show will be $20 per seat.  Snack provided and beverages available.  We have not settled on an opening artist at this time. Watch this space for more on that. 
 
In case the show fills completely up, we suggest reservations via pre payment of the suggested donation.  You can send checks to us at 7326 SE Woodward St., Portland, Oregon, 97206. Make checks out to Dan Dover (not Doverlaff House Concerts.) Put Gideon Freudmann House Concert in the memo line.  You can reach Dan for question, directions or whatever at 503.730.3189.
 
We look forward to seeing you at the show.
Here is some of the press buzz about Gideon and his music:

“Gideon Freudmann is a talented, experimental cellist that got the ear of producers from NPR’s All Thing’s Considered. There is sense of humor, a spirit of eclectic adventure, and a mastery of classic and jazz forms in these pieces. This fusion of talent & experiment makes for a peerless and unforgettable collection of gems.”

 Perfect Sound Forever

“Taking a modern artist’s approach to the four-stringed instrument, Gideon Freudmann has brought the cello to a new realm. His latest album is a dreamy, cinematic tour-de-force!”

– The Boston Globe

“Freudmann sounds like nothing less than a cutting-edge, avant-garde musician, whose genre-bending exploits combine aspects of performance art, new-classical, psychedelia and comedy, a sort of cross between Kronos Quartet and Leo Kottke.” – Berkshire Eagle

“Gideon is sharp, witty, prolific, talented… A cross between Woody Allen, Frank Zappa, and a touch of Peter Schikele” – Maine Public Radio

“17 tracks of twisted, madcap songs, slightly along the lines of Syd Barrett or Robyn Hitchcock, if they had ever tripped out on cello, with a little Dan Hicks humor for sanity. The melodies were memorable, totally infectious, swirling with a psychedelic vertigo and an occasional Beatlesque moment.” – Dirty Linen
