Come hear us in person!

Upcoming Shows

Our next gig is:
Saturday, April 23rd, 2022; 10 - 11 PM
New England Folk Festival
Jug Band Blues Dance, Online via Zoom
Come dance your heart out to Outrageous Fortune's rootsy jug band stylings of classic '20s and '30s blues and jazz. Stationary listeners are also welcome -- but we can't guarantee you'll be able to stay that way!

But wait, there's more! Our highly veneered guitar player, Chris Welles, is conducting his ever popular "Swing Guitar For Folkies" workshop Friday (April 22nd) evening at 7 PM. Bring your guitar -- or ukulele -- and join us.

Chris plays piano too. Check out his cool piano/voice demo on Soundcloud!
A Capella Fans: See our guitar player in his incarnation as a Boston Jazz Voices baritone, appear on two episodes of the 4th season of the PBS TV program "Sing That Thing" (Premiere - we're at 10m15s and Episode 7 )!
