The Creston Concert Society’s 2011-2012 season kicks off on Oct. 1 with Sheesham and Lotus, who play what they describe as “old time ragtime high steppin’ mountain music”.

Versatile musicians Sheesham (fiddle, bones, harmonica, foot stepping, gourd banjo, jaw harp and hambone) and Lotus (banjo, bass harmonica, jaw harp, ukulele, gourd, banjo and hambone) both sing and the audience should be prepared for a high-energy evening.

The pair is also known for its homemade curiosities — according to their website, “Sheesham is a maker of gourd banjos and fiddles, and Lotus plays an invention called the contra-bass harmoniphoneum, which is a self-contained bass-harmonica and euphonium horn which can be used while plucking a banjo.”

Tickets for the concert, which starts at 7:30 p.m. at PRince Charles Theatre, are available at Black Bear Books or at the door.
