Boston: Mark Erelli To Play Club Passim On October 9th
Boston-based folk singer Mark Erelli is slated to play Club Passim in Boston on October 9th, and he wants you all to be there!
Mark Erelli has tackled everything from western swing and protest songs to lullabies and murder ballads, all in a richly expressive voice that Twangville.com heralds as “the male counterpart to Neko Case.” These days, fans are just as likely to find Erelli fronting bluegrass band Barnstar!, or backing up Lori McKenna at the Grand Ole Opry or Josh Ritter at London’s Royal Albert Hall, as they are to see a solo acoustic performance at venerable listening rooms like Harvard Square’s Club Passim.
For his ninth solo recording Milltowns, Erelli has crafted a deeply personal tribute to his musical hero Bill Morrissey. Morrissey, who was known for his terse yet lyrical songs, passed away in 2011 after a long struggle with alcoholism.
