Q. What do you get when you combine 2 of our favourite Ottawa Home Concert musicians, John Williams on clarinet (From Jaron Freeman Fox & The Opposite of Everything) & Adrian Gross on mandolin (from Slocan Ramblers) along side the smokey voice of Sam McLellan on upright bass?
A. The Roofhoppers!
Based in Toronto, The Roofhoppers are an acoustic chamber trio that explore their original compositions and flights of improvisation. They are Sam McLellan on acoustic bass and vocals, John David Williams on clarinet and Adrian Gross on acoustic archtop guitar and mandolin.
They explore the common ground shared by the distinct musical traditions of klezmer, gypsy jazz, and folk.
