SUSAN ALCORN & BECKY KESSLER - Saturday, November 19th. Music starts at 2pm.


Saturday, November 19th 

Music starts at 2pm

Alcorn is a Texas native who plays the pedal steel guitar. The journey from playing country and bluegrass and straight jazz to her mature style has aided by advice from Muddy Waters and Paul Bley. The wide-open ears, keen intellect, emotional sensitivity and rigorously-honed skill as a player that she has developed has brought her into collaborations with Pauline Oliveros, Peter Kowald, Eugene Chadbourne and Jandek among many others. But it’s her solo work as a composer, improviser and interpreter of songs, which are more aching sequences and clusters of crystaline sounds than tunes, that always blows me away.
With clarity and precision and a gift for invoking sweeping landscapes, Alcorn is able to perform arrangements of Curtis Mayfield or Olivier Messiaen highlighting both their structural and spiritual aspects simultaneously and then attacking the strings zen-slap-loud or hovering stained-glass mobiles of sound-clouds. Dreamy stuff, full of emotion and one of the more Universalist twists on Americana. - Ian Nagoski


But oh, that voice: Ms Kessler’s croon is one of the very finest instruments swirling around Connecticut and any other state within a stone’s launch, sounding at times Bessie Smith, at other times Jeff Buckley, at all times with melancholy ache. 
- Christopher Aloysius Mariotti

Becky Kessler, the virtual unknown. A Dixie-bred, Connecticut transplant, with the serious guitar chops and the downright deadly voice...  blend of angular rock cut with ethereal moodiness was immediately equal parts stunning and gorgeous - Chip McCabe

A free show with donations to these amazing musicians very much welcomed and encouraged.
