Blues Hall of Famer Marc Black performs May 8
At 8:30 p.m. on May 8, a Night of Blues and Greens with acclaimed singer-songwriter/guitarist Marc Black at the Towne Crier Cafe will zero in on environmental themes. Black, a 2014 inductee into the New York Chapter of the Blues Hall of Fame, excels in finger-style blues in the tradition of Mississippi John Hurt and Tim Hardin.
A proud road warrior with a deep dedication to environmentalism, Black was chosen by Pete Seeger to accompany him at the Folk Music Hall of Fame fundraiser, shortly before he passed away. Black carries on the torch for justice with his Sing for the Silenced campaign.
Black will be joined by the EarthTones, a nine-voice a capella group of Hudson Valley women whose “song choices and purity of sound celebrate the beauty and wonders of our Mother Earth.” The evening will also feature a special appearance by singer/actress Goldee Greene.
Tickets are $20 in advance, $25 at the door. The Towne Crier is at 379 Main St., in Beacon. For more info, call 845-855-1300 or visit townecrier.com.
