Video clip of The Charistmatic Megaphonic String Orchestra! Next performance-Wednesday, June 10 at 6:30pm @ The Perch Cafe

The Charistmatic Megaphonic String Orchestra is an old-time string band with a modern twist. Its members are Park Slope's own Bilger family--Burkhard Bilger on guitar, Jennifer Nelson on violin and accordion, Hans Bilger (13) on stand-up bass, and Ruby Bilger (10) on vocals and percussion. Their friend and spiritual leader Michael Abrams plays ukulele and the youngest Bilger--Evangeline (5)--occasionally joins in on songs about chickens. The band plays an uproarious mixture of folk songs, novelties tunes, and rock-and-roll classics, filtered through their own sweet but slightly skewed sensibilities.

Watch the video I shot as they play their closing signature piece by
Gillian Welch, I'll Fly Away.
