Boris Garcia with special guest Eddy Lawrence
Live at the WPKN studio
Bands happen because they're meant to be...because they contain an energy that simply must find expression. To be clear, Boris Garcia isn't a person, it's a band. Inspired by their predecessors: The Grateful Dead, The New Riders of the Purple Sage, Railroad Earth and Yonder Mountain String Band, Boris Garcia has cleverly twisted the free form spirit of the Jam Band scene with folk, jazz, blues, and the joyous fluidity of bluegrass music to forge their own sound: Jam Grass.
Eddy Lawrence is a critically acclaimed singer-songwriter and multi-instrumentalist with nine solo albums to his credit. Dirty Linen calls his album, “Inside My Secret Pocket”, “a pure delight”, and says “With a cynical eye and wry sense of humor, Lawrence exudes a world-weary attitude that is reminiscent of John Prine at his smarmy best.”
In concert, Lawrence is known for his humorous way with a story and his fluid flatpicking and fingerstyle guitar work. He is accompanied by his wife Kim, who plays upright bass. The Lawrences have recently released a new all-acoustic album of original songs, “My Second Wife’s First Album”.
The performance begins as 12 noon and everybody is invited. Admission is free. For directions or reservations, call (203) 331-9756.
