“Night Watch” is a collective of music playing friends:
Randy Welch, Liz Fisher, and Bob Roe,
who share a common love of the Bay, music and camaraderie.
What began as an occasional music jam has become
weekly practice sessions where musical skills are honed, harmonies tightened, and laughter abounds.
Welch sings tenor and plays multiple instruments, including 12-string guitar, harmonica, bagpipes and Native
American box flute;
Fisher sings and plays mandolin and guitar, while Roe supplies bass vocals and guitar.
Music includes originals by
Welch, traditional sea shanties and ballads, and songs by
the likes of Old Crow Medicine Show, Allison Krause and Johnny Cash. The vibe is upbeat folk with a bit of country,
rock and alternative Americana thrown in.
This is a Gallery Stage performance. Cash bar.
