Reprise: Bodega Returns to Catham

Rural Intelligence Arts
A concert to benefit the Chatham Food Pantry. featuring Bodega, a traditional band based in Glasgow that has been called ‘the Scottish Nickel Creek,’ will take place this Wednesday evening at PS/21 in Chatham.

The members of Bodega got together at Scotland’s National Centre of Excellence for Traditional Music in 2004 when all were still in high school. They formed a band and within a year, they had won the coveted BBC Radio 2 Young Folk Award. 

Last year, Bodega performed to a sell-out crowd at the Spencertown Academy.  The following week they did a workshop with members of the Chatham High School Orchestra, a program they intend to repeat this year. Says Jean Waggoner, string teacher at the school. “This is the most talked about and eagerly anticipated workshop at the High School I have ever done.”
