Live Lunch Break hosts Mister Roper

Those musician folks who live up in the Woodstock region of New York aren't kidding around. There's the whole Band/Dylan association. Todd Rundgren and his Bearsville Studios. Hendrix lived there. Pat Metheny lives there and so does Bonnie Raitt. Tony Levin is an indelible presence - when he's not touring with Peter Gabriel or King Crimson. And so on ...

Not to be overlooked in all of this is Mister Roper, a roots-folk outfit headed up by singer-songwriters Eric Squindo and Rick Schneider. Sounding like Rick Danko moved into Butch Hancock's cabin and they made stew together, Mister Roper mine the rich ore of Americana's past even as their recently released, self-titled album looks to the future.

Mister Roper appear Thursday as the first guests on The Day's 2015 "Live Lunch Break" calendar.

It takes place at noon, as always, in New London's Telegraph Record Shop.
