Mad Agnes — Live at Old Songs

Friday, February 11, at 7:30 pm EST
Old Songs Community Arts Center, 37 S Main St
Voorheesville, NY 12186 United States

In Person AND Live Streamed at Old Songs

Back from a ten-year lunch break, Mad Agnes has reunited to bring you the intricate harmonies and compelling songwriting that have always been their signature. Margo Hennebach, Adrienne Jones and Mark Saunders have been singing and playing together since there were dinosaurs, performing across the U.S. and overseas. While dodging labels and mixing styles (Folk, classical or Celtic? Soaring vocals, incisive lyrics or giggly repartee?), the genre-bending trio has won hearts on two continents, and individually and collectively amassed a body of work which comprises 13 CDs and a concert DVD.

Though each member is a multi-instrumentalist, this iteration sees them pared down with fewer instruments and only one microphone, around which they form and re-form, early-radio style. This allows them to be more playful and more connected, bringing you guitars, mandolin, percussion, keyboard, and “three-part harmonies as tight as jeans from the dryer” (Rob Weir, The Advocate).

The Longest Johns — Live at Old Songs

Friday, February 25, at 7:30 pm EST
Old Songs Community Arts Center, 37 S Main St
Voorheesville, NY 12186 United States

In Person AND Live Streamed at Old Songs

I doubt any of Bristol’s The Longest Johns ever imagined they would be able to get so far on just four voices. Born out of a mutual love of traditional folk songs and shanties, they rock maritime songs alongside the more unusual and less traditional folk tunes. In a few short years they have gone from singing sea shanties in a kitchen to International folk festivals, tours, TV appearances and gained a huge online following. As the face of the 2021 sea shanty revival with their track Wellerman, the Johns are reaching millions of new fans all across the globe and showing them just how great these songs can be.

Beppe Gambetta — Live at Old Songs

Friday, March 25, at 7:30 pm EDT
Old Songs Community Arts Center, 37 S Main St
Voorheesville, NY 12186 United States

In Person AND Live Streamed at Old Songs

In a world dominated by the trends and logic of the market, Beppe Gambetta’s playing and singing stand out. His is an inspired music that avoids relying solely on his technical excellence, but also reveals the innermost feelings of a brilliant, playful mind that is always exploring and innovating while staying firmly rooted in tradition. He naturally and seamlessly bridges the shores of two continents, creating a musical fusion of American roots and the Ligurian tradition, emigration songs and folk ballads, steel-string guitars and vintage harp-guitars.
