PRIMO CUBANO

MAINE MADE  • CUBAN MUSIC

One of our favorites!

Primo Cubano plays traditional Cuban dance music dating back to

the turn of the 20th Century. "Son" is the most popular style to

come out of Cuba and is the primary contributor to the blend

of Latin styles today known as Salsa. It was first a music of

the country people and eventually migrated to Havana,

where it was urbanized and began to draw a wider

audience.

PUTNAM SMITH & APRIL REED-COX

Putnam Smith, who hails from Portland, Maine, could be an old-world

troubadour fresh from the 19th Century.  After all, he lives in a log cabin,  

plays his Grandfather's banjo, and prints up the jackets of his CDs on an

antique Letterpress. Yet this rootsy multi- instrumentalist songwriter

(he also writes and performs on guitar, mandolin, fretless banjo, and piano),

steeped as he is in old-time Appalachian traditions, is very much a storyteller

for the modern age.  


April Reed-Cox has been playing cello since she was 4. She is a classically

trained musician who holds a Masters degree in Music Performance. She has

competed throughout the country, and most recently was runner up for the

Symphony of the Mountains concerto competition in Kingsport, Tenn. She

prides herself on diversity, and performs chamber, orchestral, solo, improvisational, folk, and celtic/irish music from Maine to South Carolina.  April plays with The Ale House String Band, The Early Evening Show Orchestra, Putnam Smith, Bangor Symphony Orchestra and Maine Pro Musica, while teaching at  Bay Chambers and Woodsound Studios.  She is also developing a small scale, self-sufficient farming operation at Twisted Maple Farm.
