CEG and Blue Rose Music are excited to present the return of Jackie Greene to NYC to perform at Town Hall on Friday, October 5, 2018. This past year, Greene took a much-needed rest from the relentless touring circuit to begin a new chapter in his life and focus on marriage, fatherhood, and a cross-country move from NYC back to his Northern California hometown roots. Joining him for a special guest performance this evening is Samantha Fish.
“The Prince of Americana” rightly named by the New York Times, will now return to the concert stage with a dynamic new band and eye-popping visual production inspired by the award winning animated short film that was created for the songs from his The Modern Lives Vol 1 by “king of indie animation” Bill Plympton. Greene has always had a knack for capturing the human experience in all its messy, emotional complexity, and on his new EP, he draws inspiration from some of the great social paradoxes of our 21st century world: that the technology designed to simplify our lives can actually complicate them in ways we’d never imagined, that the most crowded cities can actually be the loneliest places to live, that the constructs meant to connect us to each other can actually leave us feeling more isolated than ever.
Samantha Fish, a rising star of a guitarist, singer, and songwriter, will be joining Tab for this night of live Louisiana rhythm and blues. After launching her recording career in 2009, Samantha Fish quickly established herself as a rising star in the contemporary blues world. The New York Times called Fish “an impressive blues guitarist who sings with sweet power” and “one of the genre’s most promising young talents.” The hardworking musician released her album Belle of the West in November 2017 and was number one on the Billboard Blues charts. Rolling Stone also noted her as one of 10 country artists you need to know in 2017.
The two-hour concert will feature a generous selection of new songs and hefty helping of fan favorites and some musical surprises.The new band line-up features Grammy Award winning producer Shannon Sanders on keys and filling the role of music director, longtime member Nathan Dale (Guitar), Megan Coleman (Percussion), Jon “Smoke” Lucas (Drums), Ben Rubin (Bass) and a horn section.
