Martin Grosswendt & Susanne Salem-Schatz w/ OLD TIMEY
October 3 | 7:00 pm-9:00 pm$15
Start with two compelling voices, an uncanny sense of harmony and a deep grounding in traditional American music. Add in stunning guitar work and a warm, intimate performance style, and what do you get? Martin Grosswendt and Susanne Salem-Schatz. As one reviewer says, “Martin and Susanne make beautiful music together.”
Martin is internationally known as an interpreter of pre- war blues and other roots music, and started his career accompanying and recording with the legendary folk musicians such as U Utah Phillips, Rosalie Sorrels, and Jim Ringer and Mary McCaslin. Susanne is a veteran of the Boston roots music scene and slips seamlessly into any genre, making it her own; soulful blues singer one minute, sassy honky-tonk gal the next. Together they embrace a deep love and respect for the roots of classic blues, old time, early country, and honky-tonk. At the same time, they make the music their own, presenting it with style, grace and wit.
Old Timey is a 4-piece band, with Kasey Foster (vocals), Charlie Otto (guitar/vocals), Patrick Dinnen (upright bass), and Alan Maniacek (drums), playing both popular and lesser-known hits from the 1920s-50s.
Old Timey’s mission is to dig deep for tunes that are near extinction in the memories of both the baby boomer and the silent boomer generations. If you are fan of Les Paul and Mary Ford, the Mills Brothers, Perry Como, Hank Williams, Willie Dixon, The Andrews Sisters, Georgia Gibbs… you will enjoy this powerhouse foursome. If you know none of the aforementioned musicians/groups, you will still enjoy this powerhouse foursome.
