The Flying Elbows, the Island’s own old-time string band, will crank out another night of zany songs and high- energy fiddle tunes next Friday, Oct. 24, at 7:30 p.m. at the Katharine Cornell Theatre in Vineyard Haven.
Currently a foursome, this band has been through many incarnations over the years. Original member Bob Hammond is back with the band, adding not only a twin fiddle but also some really rootsy clawhammer banjo.
The other musicians are Tom Hodgson, on guitar and mandolin, Nancy Jephcote on fiddle and bassist Paul Thurlow. The band has also added three-part vocal harmonies on such classics as Whoa Mule, Ukulele Lady and the Popcorn Blues.
Admission is $10 at the door; free for children under 12. Profits go to the Island Food Pantry; bring a food item to throw in the donation box if you can.
