||Amy Gallatin ... Folk
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.
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.
Tickets are $12. Amy's website is
