My Gay Banjo, Joshua Marcus & Über Haggard are coming to Willimantic Records
Saturday, July 28th at 6pm
My Gay Banjo (Brooklyn, NY) www.mygaybanjo.com http://mygaybanjo.bandcamp.com/ My Gay Banjo is Owen Taylor and Julia Steele Allen on guitar, banjo, uke and vocals. Singing homespun gay-themed duets and occasional queered-up mash-ups, My Gay Banjo plays songs for you and your kind.
Joshua Marcus (Philadelphia, PA/Providence, RI) www.joshuamarcus.com Joshua Marcus has been quietly emerging, banjo in tow, as one of today's most intriguing songwriters. As a solo artist and with his group Fan of Friends, Marcus' astonishingly honest and powerful songwriting is steeped in Appalachian tradition and pre-AAA folk innovation. At the heart of his songs is the simple beauty and subtlety of a great melody.
Über Haggard (Canaan/NYC/Willi) A project of Jordan Lorrius and Thomas Stanton.
Free show with donations to the musicians encouraged.
744 Main Street,
Willimantic, CT 06226
