A new collaboration between Golden Link Folk Singing Society and Bernunzio Uptown Music in Rochester’s East End will bring three winners of Golden Link’s 2015 New Voices Emerging Artists Showcase to Bernunzio’s as part of the new “New Voices” concert series.
Kicking things off on Saturday, March 26 at 8 pm will be the songwriting brothers Matt and Nathan Corrigan of Tough Old Bird. They play a potent blend of folk and blues that reflects the rural landscape they come from – a place where the last train just pulled out and the carnival is always on its way to the next town.
The Lonely Ones perform on Saturday, April 16 at 8 pm. Formed as a duo in Rochester in 2010 and now expanded to a four-piece band, The Lonely Ones (John Muoio, Samantha Thomas, Kim Glover, Levi Gangi) play original folk that combines compelling songwriting and tight harmonies. They have a sound resonant of the American countryside, wide open and rich with storytelling.
Guitarist-singer-songwriter Matthew Cochran performs at Bernunzio’s on Saturday, May 21 at 8 pm. His music incorporates elements of jazz, bluegrass, Country Western, the great American songwriters from Tin Pan Alley to Sondheim, and the plaintive traditional music of his native Appalachia.
Tickets to each of the concerts will be $10 general admission, $7 students and Golden Link members, available directly through Bernunzio’s. For more information, visit the Events page on the Bernunzio website.
Keep on singing!
