LI Concert Notes # 9 10/17/06

“There is no hill high as the moon, no river deeper than the sea.  No shooting star, reckless in flight burns in the night.  Wild as the love he gave to me.  Only the rain knows where he goes.  Thunder and me, rambling with my gypsy rose.” – Dave Carter (Tracy Grammer, Flower of Avalon) 

Here’s some great Live Music on LI.

Wednesday, 10/18 – Kelli Rae Powell.  8 PM.  Acoustic Long Island at CoolBeanz Café, 556 North Country Rd (25a), St. James.  We learn once and for all that size isn’t everything.  With her little guitar and diminutive stature, Kelli Rae’s performance is kick-ass big.  A cabaret bad-girl’s persona sets the theme for many of her songs, yet you know this is a vehicle for metaphor about all our desires and social human folly.  Challenging songs, both in variety among songs and within songs, and difficult melodies are performed with little effort.  Her voice is to say the least very strong.  No cover charge.

Thursday, 10/19 – Mark Loebl hosts The Pisces Cafe Unplugged ( 14 Railroad Avenue , Babylon ) on the third Thursday of each month.  Four acoustic original performers/groups, 30 minute sets. For booking, and further information, www.doloresloebl.com.

he Daydreamers are veterans of Long Island’s acoustic and rock scenes — the trio is comprised of much in-demand session men. Guitarist Bob Westcott, bassist Larry Hunter and drummer Mike DiGeronimo have cooked up a tasty blend of music best described as Folkabilly, characterized by their FolkAbility.

hile Westcott’s breathtaking skill as a fingerpicker takes on a whole new dimension on a cool red Gretsch, bassist Larry Hunter displays the driving rhythm and wonderful sense of humor that makes him such a favorite of Great Caesar’s Ghost fans … and Mike DiGeronimo keeps the backbeat on the gentle side with a snare and brushes.

“Brian Sendrowitz, a true poet, gleans the best from our American folk traditions and reshapes them into rhythms and stanzas that speak volumes about the contemporary struggle for personal and spiritual freedom.  Without diatribe and dogma, Brian never ceases to challenge the listener to join him in the age old quest for the essence of truth and love. Combining the innocence of Springtime with the burnished leaves of Fall, Brian takes us on timeless journeys from Providence to our fall from grace which was simply the scientific reality of gravity and had nothing to do with thoughts or deeds.”  -Sonny Meadows, Aural Fix Communiqué —-

Sunday, 11/5 – Eric Andersen. 2 PM. University Café, Stony Brook.  After a memorable show at the Café in 2005, this legendary singer-songwriter returns by popular demand, presenting a mix of Andersen classics (“Thirsty Boots,” ” Blue River “).  as well as great new songs.  Tickets: $25.00 general/$20 students.  Andersen, one of our outstanding singer-songwriters for almost four decades, emerged on the Greenwich Village music scene in the 1960’s, along with Bob Dylan, Phil Ochs, and Tom Paxton. While staying true to the spirit of the music of that era, Andersen has always absorbed, expanded, and pioneered new musical styles as well. His discography encompasses over twenty solo albums, with  collaborators ranging from Townes Van Zandt and Rick Danko to Lou Reed and Robert Aaron.

In recent years, Andersen has released two solo CDS in what he calls “The Great American Song Series” re-interpreting the works of Dylan, Ochs and Paxton, as well as Tim Buckley, Fred Neil, Patrick Sky, Peter La Farge, and David Blue, among others. A new song by Andersen, The Street Was Always There  (the title for one of the CDs) is a  strong reference to the generation of singer-songwriters who helped shape a distinct era in American music.

Andersen played the University Café in December, 2004, to a sell-out audience and repeated calls for his return have led to this upcoming concert.

Admission to this show is $25 with a student ticket of $20. Reservations are essential and may be made via e mail to SundayStreetWUSB@aol.com or by phone by calling the University Café at 632-6027. The University Café website is www.universitycafe.org and the concert is listed under “Special Events.”
