Be Festival

Post Show: Abie’s Miracle Tonic Live

When your bones is achin’
and your heart is a-breakin’
and your stomach’s a-shakin’
there’ll be no mistakin’

It’s an ‘effervescent…esoteric…energetic…and (occasionally) off-the-wall…’ concoction of ragtime, blues, jazz, spirituals and novelty songs on guitar, washboard, vocal harmonies and trumpet impersonations!
