Friday Night Folk opens 2019-20 season with new day, new venue
Folk music is timeless — so much so that the area's much-loved Friday Night Folk series is now taking place on Saturdays. (It's still called Friday Night Folk, though.)
There's also a new venue; concerts will henceforth happen in Waterford's Temple Emanu-El (replacing the longtime All Souls UU residency in New London).
Got all that?
Good: Then head over to the temple Friday — er, Saturday — to catch the excellent Americana band Plywood Cowboy featuring Steve Dedman. You may have enjoyed them a few years back on an episode of The Day "Live Lunch Break." Great tunes and musicians; their 2018 "Blue Skies" album is thoughtful and hummable, and the band won last year's Connecticut Folk Festival band competition.
Plywood Cowboy, Friday Night Folk, 7:30 p.m. Saturday, Temple Emanu-El, 29 Dayton Road, Waterford; $10-$20; fridaynightfolk.org.
