Summer is not exactly a bumping time on the Caltech public events schedule: there’s just the one. Just that one, however, looks pretty interesting: Aaron Jones and Claire Mann, a pair of English musicians who play mostly in Scotland. Aaron is best known as a member of the Old Blind Dogs, which we are told is an immensely popular Scottish group. He does most of their vocals now, and plays a mean bouzouki, bass, and cittern. Claire plays flute, tin whistle, and fiddle. She’s an in-demand session musician, and has toured extensively with a number of bands. Her 2001 debut album was followed shortly by an Aaron and Claire duo recording, Secret Orders. They play jigs, reels, waltzes, songs, and laments. They sound pretty cool. The Caltech Folk Music Society can sure pick ’em.
