Special opening set by
Appearing at The Performance Space on Friday, June 24th at 7:00 pm is Blues and Bluegrass Trio ‘The Gregg Daigle Band’. They will be performing music from their new release “Almost Live” and, additionally, a screening of the premiere of their new video created by award nominated videographer Matti Greenman will be featured. The audience will be treated to thoughtful originals and stomping bluegrass standards. The Santa Fe Reporter says,”Daigle, his banjo and his band play inventive, melodic and catchy bluegrass, roots and Americana.”
In addition, Justin Thompson will play a full set of his original songs. With an instinctive knack for melody and prose, Justin’s compositions are as singable and energetic as they are rich in content. His songs have drawn comparisons to John Prine and Leonard Cohen.
He is supporting his soon-to-be-released CD “Hymns for a Manchild”.
The concert will feature an opening set from vocalist and songwriter Gabrielle Louise. Of her songs and performance David McGee, New York City music critic and previous editor for Rolling Stone, has said: “She executes a captivating balance of heartache and resolve.”
