Music

All Souls Unitarian-Universalist Congregation, 19 Jay Street, New London, , 06475

Friday Night Folk at All Souls will host the 4th annual Pete Seeger Tribute concert concert, this year benefiting START FRESH, Inc. New London, the New London-based refugee resettlement organization responding to the humanitarian crisis resulting from the regional conflict in Syria.

Many fine local acoustic musicians are donating their time and talents for this concert including Hugh Birdsall, The Carolans, Nick Evento, Kristen Graves, Golden Ratio, Geoff Kaufman, Ben & Nancy Parent, Ted Phillips, The Raging Grannies, and Baird Welch-Collins. The performers will gather to take turns sharing their versions of Pete’s songs, songs he loved, and songs about him. Geoff Kaufman, who spent time with Pete over many years aboard the Hudson River sloop Clearwater, will emcee the evening as well as perform.

For nearly 70 years, Pete Seeger embodied the ideals of folk music – communication, entertainment, social comment, historical continuity, inclusiveness. His songs have imprinted us with the sounds, traditions and values of our global past and present.

THE WHISKEY TREATY ROADSHOW

Saturday, Feb. 25, 2017, 8:00 pm
THE WHISKEY TREATY ROADSHOW;

Music

The Linda WAMC's Performing Arts Studio, 339 Central Avenue, Albany, NY , 12206

The Whiskey Treaty Roadshow is a collaborative band that brings together five Massachusetts singer-songwriters in the vein of Americana, rock and roots-folk music. The band's members-Tory Hanna, Billy Keane, Chris Merenda, Greg Smith, and Dave Tanklefsky-have totaled 18 albums while working as solo artists, frontmen, sidemen, and founding members of now-defunct bands.
Since their incarnation, the Whiskey Treaty Roadshow has been more recognizable on film than on record: last year, the band was the subject of director Tim Bradley's documentary of the same name, a praise-worthy project selected to 17 national film festivals, winning awards for "Best Regional Doc," "Best Short Doc," and "Best Music Doc."
The Roadshow formed specifically for that tour, as a temporary songwriters' circle that would disband upon its completion. They never did, and the last 18 months has largely been spent in support of the documentary, with a host of shows at premieres, screenings and film festivals.
Now they have released their debut album The Heart of the Run a combination of their veteran savvy, but with a newcomers' kinetic energy, which results in the album's cathartic feeling, like this is what the Whiskey Treaty Roadshow was put together to do.
