Martin Sexton to play Bearsville on Friday
The legendary J. Geils Band harmonica player Magic Dick pairs with the young Boston-based guitar and vocal phenom Shun Ng for a set at the Falcon in Marlboro on Friday, February 17 at 8 p.m. Ng’s aptly titled 2012 slappy acoustic true-solo record Funky Thumb Stuff caught the attention of Magic Dick, who then set the wheels in motion that culminated in the duo’s new album About Time. Per usual at the Falcon, there is no cover, but generous donation is strongly
Touring in support of his ninth studio release, Mixtape of the Open Road, the tireless and iconoclastic New Folk icon Martin Sexton continues to make friends everywhere. Honey-voiced, both a master and an innovator in the idioms of folk, the Syracuse native made his name in Boston, which helps explain why that city’s beloved brother duo Brothers McCann join Sexton for his Friday, February 17 gig at the Bearsville Theater in Woodstock.
