notloB Parlour Concerts presents... Mr. Sun

notloB's Fall season, which began in September with Blue Hat, Yeah! and continued in October with the Tannahill Weavers continues in our new 100 seat Washington Square Brookline venue, located on the "C" green line with plenty of street parking and close to over a dozen restaurants!

notloB Parlour Concerts presents...Mr.Sun, a 21st Century string band.... multi-generational hot shots!
Sunday, November 30, 2014, 8:00pm
Boston Graduate School of Psychoanalysis*, 1581 Beacon St, Brookline, MA 02446

Mr. Sun is the name of a new musical project: Darol Anger, Joe Walsh on mandolin (Gibson Brothers, himself), Grant Gordy on guitar (David Grisman, Jake Schepps) and Ethan Jodziewicz on acoustic bass.

Legendary fiddler Darol Anger, youthful guitar whiz Grant Gordy, and the redoubtable mandolinist Joe Walsh have all spent their lives moving from place to place, adopting a town and moving on, toward an magisterial knowledge of the physical and psychic terrains that make up the Americas.
Though each is of a different generation, they've walked similar musical paths, exploring the worlds of bluegrass, blues, jazz, and old-time, on their way to mastery of their chosen instruments. Day by day, they deepen their fluency in the vast swath of dialects that comprise American roots music.

Fiddler, composer, producer and educator, Darol Anger is at home in a number of musical genres, some of which he helped to invent. Exceptional among modern fiddlers for his versatility and depth, Anger has helped drive the evolution of the contemporary string band through his involvement with numerous pathbreaking ensembles such as his Republic Of Strings, the Turtle Island String Quartet, the David Grisman Quintet, Montreux, his Duo with Mike Marshall, and others. He has performed and taught all over the world with musicians such as Dr. Billy Taylor, Bela Fleck, Bill Evans, Edgar Meyer, Bill Frisell, Tony Rice, Tim OBrien, Anonymous 4, Marin Alsop and the Cabrillo Orchestra, the Detroit Symphony, Mark OConnor, and Stephane Grappelli. Today Darol can be heard on NPR's "Car Talk" theme every week, along with Earl Scruggs, David Grisman and Tony Rice. He was also the violinist on the phenomenally popular Sim City computer games. In addition to performing all over the world, he has recorded and produced scores of important recordings since 1977, is a MacDowell and UCross Fellow, and has received numerous composers residencies and grants. He has been a featured soloist on dozens of recordings and motion picture soundtracks. He is an Associate Professor at the prestigious Berklee School of music. He recently began an ambitious online Fiddle School at His website

Assuming the guitarist role in the fabled David Grisman Quintet, a spot previously held by such notables as Tony Rice, Mark OConnor, Frank Vignola and Mike Marshall, has confirmed Grant Gordy as a pre-eminent young voice on acoustic guitar. David Grisman says Gordy belongs to the new elite of American acoustic practitioners who are pushing the ever-expanding envelope of a musical frontier.
His work has been widely recognized for its consistent excellence and diversity. He was featured on the covers of Flatpicking Guitar Magazine and Japans premier bluegrass magazine, Moonshiner. He was recently written up in Just Jazz Guitar and in 2010, Acoustic Guitar Magazine celebrated his debut CD in its Top Ten Acoustic Albums of the Year.
Gordys music has been heard on National Public Radios Morning Edition, All Things Considered and the prestigious Tiny Desk Concerts. Gordy was selected in 2006 to be one of 15 participants in Carnegie Halls Porous Borders of Music workshop, led by acoustic music legends Edgar Meyer and Mike Marshall. Hes played at Bonnaroo Music Festival, the Montral Jazz Festival, Carnegie Hall, Hardly Strictly Bluegrass Festival in San Francisco and in the UK and Russia.
Gordy was drawn to the guitar early on as a means of expression and intellectual curiosity. Moving to Colorado from Oregon in his 20s opened his horizons as he began playing in a wide range of different styles.
Now based in New York, Gordys diverse musical gifts make him the ideal all-around guitarist for one of the worlds most varied musical cities. Hes currently focused on writing new original material, delving headlong into the Big Apples extraordinary jazz scene, continuing to tour with Grisman and other collaborators, teaching, and as always, staying open to new musical experiences.
"The young bluegrass/jazz virtuosos recording debut is an inspired, ambitious, coherent collection of original compositions for string jazz quartet (guitar, fiddle, mandolin, bass) that ranks with the best of his employer, David Grisman. --Acoustic Guitar Magazine

Recognized as one of the foremost contemporary mandolinists, Joe has also won acclaim and affection for his vocals and his talents on a number of other instruments, including guitar and octave mandolin. Legendary fiddler Darol Anger called one of my favorite musicians on earth. With two solo albums to his credit, he toured internationally with the award-winning bluegrass supergroup The Gibson Brothers.
In the spring of 2011 Joe released his second solo record, Sweet Loam, which features several of his recent compositions and new arrangements of some more familiar songs. An exceptional cast of musicians joins him, including Mike Block, Scott Law, Karl Doty, Lauren Rioux, and Darol Anger, who also co-produced the record with Joe. In the Fall of 2011 Joe returned to Berklee as both a mandolin instructor and as Managing Director of the American Roots Music Program.

Ethan Jodziewicz currently studies at Curtis Institute with Edgar Meyer. Making a musical home for Mr Sun in the space around and between the great American roots styles, this quartet draws from all of their varied backgrounds (Grammy-nominated fiddle music and jazz, award-winning bluegrass, indie/pop grass, new acoustic string bands, and classical music) in crafting a sound all their own, and is drawing all the right kind of attention for their new musical work.

Practical Applications and Issues

For example How does one know:

  • ? To evaluate Materials? Finished Devices? pre/post sterilization or aging?
  • ? How to choose a lab for testing? and how to prevent pitfalls?
  • ? If a protocol and test plan are needed?
  • ? When GLP testing (vs. non-GLP testing) is required? recommended?
  • ? How/when to use existing data?

The meeting will begin with an overview of practices and challenges in biocompatibility assessment. On the surface it sounds simple: call a test lab and they tell you what to do, or just use the table in ISO 10993-1.

Undergraduate Research Expo Boston

The Undergraduate Research Expo Boston, hosted by Project Lever, brings together students from universities in Boston and New England to showcase exciting undergraduate research and creative projects. Students will give short TED talk-style presentations on their own contributions to a broad range of fields political science, engineering, psychology, and more! Participants will get to learn about diverse subjects from their own peers and share their own experiences, as well as hear from faculty and administrators about the ways undergraduates can make the most impact during their time in college.

Project Lever is an initiative to catalyze undergraduate research. Our online platform makes research more accessible by compiling resources from both inside and outside the university so that students can easily search for and find the most relevant advisors, courses, grants, and student projects. When students spend less time searching for resources, they can spend more time actually doing research, resulting in better research for all!

Frequently Asked Questions:

I am a student, and I want to present my project! How can I get involved?
Awesome! Please reach out to with the subject line "URE presenter" telling us about yourself and your project.

I am a faculty member/administrator, and I know of a bright student who deserves to be in the spotlight. Can I nominate a student to present?
We welcome any student nominations! If you know of a student who would be a good presenter, please email with your name and position, the name of the student you would like to nominate, and a couple of sentences on why you think this student would be a good fit. Please use the subject line "URE recommendation."

I am interested in attending, but I am not a student researcher. Is it possible to attend without presenting?
Yes, we want to get as many students involved as possible! We aim not only to give a space for students to present their work but also to inspire students who are not already involved in research to pursue their own projects. If you want to attend, please fill out the registration form above for a General Admission ticket.

One of my friends is presenting. Can I get a ticket to come see him/her?
