SESSION AMERICANA, a who’s who of the Boston folk music scene, bring their Irish and American folk fusion to Monroe’s Live this Saturday at 9pm.
The band, which includes singer-songwriter Ry Cavanaugh, Laura Cortese, and Jefferson Hamer, perform bluegrass, country, and blues standards and originals. On stage they are grouped around a specially-adapted microphone table, with a suitcase drumkit and other quirky instruments, to re-create a ‘session’ feel.
David Greenberger of US radio network NPR said “If they’re playing anywhere within 100 miles of your home, you drive there and are grandly rewarded for your effort.”
Tickets are €15/12.50 and available on the door or through www.monroes.ie and 091 - 583397.
