The singer-songwriters Joe Flood and American Elm share the bill at Best Video Film & Cultural Center Sat., Mar. 26. The show starts at 7 PM and the cover is $10.
This is an indoor show so attendance is 30 max. Proof of vaccination is required to enter and masks are required. (This will be updated if circumstances allow a loosening of these restrictions.)
Joe Flood has written for and recorded with Rock & Roll Hall of Famers The Band, Blues Traveler, and the Bottle Rockets among many others. His new release “All Roads” explores the connection of the Blues to Afro-Cuban, rock ’n’ roll, gospel, and country music. The songs were recorded live to tape with minimal overdubbing. Says Flood, “Scott Kessel’s drum kit plays a big part in the sound of the record. It reminds me of a guy I knew on the street in the French Quarter years ago who played on fruit crates and pots and pans. It’s a sound very close to the source.”
American Elm is the nome de guerre of Chris Bousquet, a singer-songwriter from Connecticut. He is the former leader of the internationally acclaimed High Lonesome Plains. He has performed with such luminaries as Roger McGuinn (The Byrds), Mercury Rev, Howe Gelb, Miracle Legion, John Sebastian, Asleep at the Wheel, Rhett Miller, Mark Mulcahy, The Turtles, Nathaniel Rateliff and the Night Sweats, J. Geils, and Susan Cowsill.
