Firebox Bluegrass Series-No bluegrass this Sunday

The powerhouse duo of Amy Gallatin and renowned resophonic guitarist Roger Williams...20 and 40 year veterans of the New England music scene--joined forces a few years ago to explore their mutual love of country standards, served up with an acoustic treatment in the bluegrass vein. The result is a toe-tapping blend of heartfelt vocals, soaring harmonies and red-hot picking, traditional yet modern and distinct. Americana radio host Ed McKeon says: "Amy's vocals, with the power and tone of her voice, are tempered by Roger's baritone which has been sanded smooth by cigarettes and, shall we say, maturity. The song selections are perfect, the harmonies glorious, the sentiments wonderfully maudlin (like any good old country song)." The two are enhanced on mandolin and vocals by Roger's son, Berklee College of Music student JD, who--in the time-honored tradition of musical consanguinity complements his father's style perfectly-- and by veteran bassist Eric Levenson, formerly with Joe Val and the New England Bluegrass Boys and later with Boston City Limits. http://www.amygallatin.com/ ...and as always as many Appalachian Pals as we can find...will also be    there to help out during the middle break!  YOU?  Just lemme know if you wanna help entertain the folks!   No cover, tips encouraged...powerfully! … Read More »
