New Monsoon brought a number of special guests onstage during its tour of the Northwest this weekend. On Friday bassist Arne Livingston (Living Daylights, Steve Kimock, and 2004-era New Monsoon) sat in for Patatos Mission at Portland, ORs Aladdin Theatre. A night later at Seattles Tractor Tavern, Karl Densons Tiny Universes Chris Littlefield appeared on flugelhorn for versions of Double Clutch and On the Sun. Littlefield is no stranger to the New Monsoon fold, having played in the Tiny Universe with New Monsoons latest addition, bassist Ron Johnson. On Saturday Blue Turtle Seductions Glenn Stewart also played harmonica on Blue Queen, while BTS Christian Zupancic joined on fiddle for Alaska and Traveling Gypsies.
The group appears at Bellingham, WAs Nightlight tomorrow.
