Singer-songwriter to perform in Cold Spring
Folk-pop artist Sloan Wainwright belongs to a musical dynasty of gifted singer-songwriters. Her family tree (brother and folk-music luminary Loudon Wainwright, sister-in-law Kate McGarrigle, nephew Rufus Wainwright, nieces Martha Wainwright and Lucy Wainwright Roche) reads like a who’s who of contemporary folk music. Sloan’s talent is not only a unique songwriting style, but also dramatically voiced renditions of her songs. Wainwright consistently demonstrates an easy command of a variety of American musical styles — pop, folk, jazz and blues — held together by a rich contralto.
Wainwright has recently released a new album, Upside Down & Under My Heart. The Boston Globe’s reviewer commented that “Wainwright is always a pleasure to behold live. The way her voice rumbles like thunder on a mountaintop will make you a believer.” CLICK HERE FOR A SHORT VIDEO.
Wainwright will perform with long-time accompanist, guitarist Stephen Murphy. The concert will take place on Sunday, Oct. 2 at 7 p.m. at Philipstown.info, 69 Main Street, Cold Spring. Doors open at 6:30 p.m. and admission is $15 at the door. Seating is limited and offered on a first-come, first-served basis. Refreshments, courtesy of Go Go Pops will be available for purchase.
