The Disco Biscuits Jam with My Grammy Winner

Violinist Ann Marie Calhoun recently won a chance to play with the Foo Fighters on television as part of the My Grammy Moment contest. As it turns out, Calhoun is actually a jamband enthusiast who clocked in time with Old School Freight Train, appeared on Dave Matthews Bands Stand Up and is currently making her way through the live music circuit. A few weeks ago Calhoun performed with Yonder Mountain String Band at Raleigh, NCs Lincoln Theatre and, on Friday, she joined the Disco Biscuits for a handful of songs at Sayreville, NJs Starland Ballroom. Calhoun emerged at the start of the groups second set for versions of the new Air Song, The Overture and a jam leading into Save The Robots. She is also capable of playing mean Stash.

The Disco Biscuits have recently finalized their spring itinerary, adding performances at New Yorks Nokia Theater (4/11-12), Tuscaloosa, ALs Jupiter (4/22), New Orleans Tulane University (4/23) and Tipitina’s (4/25). The groups New York shows will feature support spots by Shpongle (4/11) and DJ Spooky (4/12).
