BLACK ROSE ACOUSTIC SOCIETY
Come early – 5-6:30 p.m. – to enjoy dinner from the Pizzarte food truck and our pre-show jam in the pavilion. Bring an acoustic instrument to join the jam, or just listen!
The music of The Acoustic Mining Company is as familiar as an old friend, just as acoustic music should be.
The percussive mandolin style of Terry Martin and banjo work of Patrick Padgett interplay like overheard conversations, while classically trained members Chris Kolakowski, upright bass, and fiddler Joel Denman take the discussion into entirely unexpected directions. Two guitars and harmony voices complete a full, warm sound, provided by Jeff Ames and Steve Suh.
Doors open at 6:15 p.m.; concert starts at 7 p.m.
BLACK ROSE ACOUSTIC SOCIETY PRESENTS BILL SCORZARI
“New York native, Bill Scorzari, independently releases his third full-length album of all original music, ‘Now I’m Free,’ on September 20. His sound is gritty, raw and at times, downright sad. His songs transition through a multitude of emotions, with themes centered on the experiences of the human condition. Of his music, some say it’s spoken word, and others, an amalgam of the voice of Tom Waits, the delivery of Sam Baker, and the soul of Kris Kristofferson. In his lyrics, there is a poetic grace, a calming and resigned wisdom of acceptance that shines through the wistful melancholy of hope, and breaks free.”
$10 general admission, $5 members and students w/ ID; free for ages 12 and younger. (Become a member and save!)
