Chrys 'Kit Demos drives 113 miles, each way, for his gigs here at the Outpost. He is only surpassed by Mr. Morris, who drives 150 miles.
Kit sometimes brings his daughter along and she has the ability to stretch across several folding chairs and nap while the ensemble churns away.
He has much in common with the regional artists in that he has a day job and he's justifiably proud of it, teaching Math and Science in the Maine Public School system. Here in the Northeast, few seriously believe you can make a living solely from performance and recording sales. But that oddly frees them up to follow their muses. Charles Ives had a day gig too. and as Jason Crane noted in a blog comment somewhere, Coltrane was an accountant on the side.
