PROVINCETOWN – First of all, we just dig the name, Kangaroo Rat.
Secondly, the two members of Kangaroo Rat (it’s just fun to say), play a cool sort of street music with an accordion, foot tambourine and a glockenspiel. This original song, “MacMillan Wharf” was played on Commercial Street, not far from its namesake. That alone makes it intriguing.
These two clearly talented musicians, created something interesting for anyone walking by, which seems to be exactly the point.
Describing themselves as, “confidently, street performers,” Kangaroo Rat is Tim Desrosiers on accordion and foot tambourine, and Anna Bell on glockenspiel. The two met in college at St. John’s in Santa Fe, New Mexico, and now live in Provincetown.
