SANDCATCHERS is a quartet with Yoshie Fruchter, Myk Freedman, Michael Bates and Shai Wetzer (with special guests) - a fresh sound blending the middle eastern trope of the oud with the dreamy, americana infused textures of the steel. Featuring original music by Fruchter inspired both by maqam and the Appalachian trail, Sandcatchers is a beautiful collaboration of sound and souls.
