TWO OLD FRIENDS
ARE VISITING US AT THE WOONSOCKET LIBRARY!
SATURDAY, SEPTEMBER 20th
2:00pm Show in the Adult Program Room
Ask them what kind of music they play and they will answer, "Good music with a lot of heart." You still want to narrow it down? Okay - they cover jazz standards from the American Songbook, but with a fresh interpretation that brings new life to those classic songs. And their songwriting influences are Paul Simon, Smokey Robinson, Joni Mitchell, Buck Owens, Duke Ellington, Thom Bell, Carole King, Cole Porter and the Gershwins - from jazz and blues to pop to R&B. With vocals, guitar, percussion and, on occasion, upright bass they have a jazzy / bluesy feel with a lot of heart.
Two Old Friends, Jim Prendergast and Emery Hutchins, are musicians who play and sing a unique combination of CeItic and American country music, and in their performances seek to show the connection between the two genres. Emery is a well known performer of a variety of different styles of acoustic music; ranging from traditional Irish tunes to vintage American country music songs. Jim worked for thirty years in the recording studios and orchestra pits of Nashville Tennessee. He now resides in NH and is an active participant in New England’s thriving Celtic/Folk music scene.
