New Rope String Band 

When: Wed., June 20, 8 p.m. 2012
Price: $8

As much a comedy act as a musical one, the UK-based New Rope String Band features a trio of consummate entertainers who've been playing together to worldwide audiences for a quarter-century. They continue to reinvent themselves. Between lighthearted bouts of silly skits and humorous songs, the veteran showmen may leap from singing a poignant, accordion-led ballad or sawing fiddles on traditional Celtic jigs—unsurprising considering their Scottish heritage—to playing a game of "musical tennis" or striking tuned PVC pipes with a flip-flop or off their own bodies in a routine reminiscent of the Blue Man Group.—Spencer Griffith
