Singer and guitarist Brad Tucker literally pulled himself out of a hospital bed Friday – he was recovering from an infection – to perform at The Pit Stop, on Dukes County Avenue in Oak Bluffs. Folksingers Jemina James and Dan Waters, violinist-singer Nina Violet, Willy Mason, and pianist Adam Lipsky were among those who joined Mr. Tucker, taking a break from the hectic pace of the pre-Christmas days to mellow out in the converted garage in the Arts District.
