Mayhemingways play eclectic Tuesday night show

I was glad to get out on a Tuesday for Peterborough Folk duo Mayhemingways’ July 10 show at the Owl Acoustic Lounge as I missed their February show.Benj Rowlands playing accordion with The Mayhemingways at the Owl Acoustic Lounge, July 10 Photo by Richard Amery
 But I still missed their first set.
 Multi-instrumentalist and vocalist Benj Rowland and drummer percussionist Josh Frewings played a variety of songs from their latest CD “Skip Land,” a highlight called  “Alberta Rose and  a few choice covers.

 Rowland took turns on Tenor guitar, banjo and accordion, while stomping rhythm on bass pedals while Frewings added harmonies and pounded out the beat with a delicate hand.

 Rowland played some excellent clawhammer banjo for a couple of songs and switched to accordion for exceptional covers of Dire Straits’ “Walk of Life” and Bruce Springsteen’s “Atlantic City, which were worth the Tuesday night out on their own.
