There’s a reason why Session Americana shows have a habit of selling out in the Stoltz.
For one thing, this acclaimed Boston-based band is custom-made for such a cozy place that’s perfect for them to craft a musical experience unlike any other.
It’s like you’re in the living room of good friends who happen to be incredibly talented musicians. On stage they gather around a collapsible bar table wired with microphones, passing around an assortment of instruments in a freewheeling modern hootenanny.
The anything-could-happen feel of a Session show depends on craft that’s not accidental or easily won; they bring a kind of ease and genuineness to this timeless music, sometimes presenting the latest batch of original songs, sometimes reaching back into depths of the American “song bag”.
