4 logo Spencer Lewis with guest Eric Graham
Time: 7 PM
Price: $10 general, kids under 16 free!
Location: The Music Box, 147 Creek Rd, Craftsbury
Description: Spencer Lewis will perform his signature combination of reflective instrumental folk grooves and his own singer-songwriter folk that rocks from his latest release From Now To Now. Lewis released his 26th instrumental album Souls in the spring of 2016 and From Now To Now this month, his 27th official release and first studio album of original songs with vocals in 16 years! Guest musicians for this concert is Eric Graham from the group Haywire, who plays both fretless and fretted electric bass and adds another dimension to Lewis’ instrumentals and impromptu passages highlighting an improvisational energy that pervades much of Lewis’ live shows. Spencer Lewis is a purveyor of reflective instrumental folk grooves whose signature sound combines the precision of the acoustic guitar with the sustained elegance of the violin that he performs on stage by the live-looping of guitar and violin overdubs. This method of live-looping allows him to move in unpredictable directions, often spontaneously, drawing upon the varied compositions he has amassed from his internationally known 28-album catalog. From Now To Now contains songs that reflect the personnel and universal change that surrounds us all. His music, including links to You Tube, Soundcloud and other exclusive material, can be found on his web site http://www.spencerlewismusic.com.
