Looking for for people with like minded taste in music who are interested in seeing performances in the greater Hartford area and beyond (Northhampton/Boston/New York etc). We can also just get together locally, socialize, listen and discuss music. Ultimately, I would like to have a House Concert Series in are area (for members of the group only) where we can invite and sponsor artists to play in our living rooms. In this way we can support the artists we enjoy and get to see them perform first hand. My music interests include Folk, Americana, Indie-rock, Singer Songwriters, Alt-country, Traditional Country, Lo-fi, 90's and Eighties Music and the like. Artists I love include: Elvis Costello, Richard Thompson, Clem Snide (Eef Barzelay), Jill Sobule, Bob Dylan, The Wood Brothers, Vic Chesnutt, Alejandro Escovedo, The Be Good Tanyas, Nirvana, Billy Bragg, Wilco, Bonnie Prince Billy (Will Oldham/Palace), Patty Griffin, Dan Bern, Gillian Welch, The Smiths, Echo and the Bunnymen, Elliot Smith, Mary Lou Lord, Evan Dando (The Lemonheads), Greg Brown, John Hiatt, Townes Van Zandt, Guy Clark, Hank Williams, Herman Dune, Iris Dement, Iron and Wine, Son Volt, Jollie Holland, Steve Earle, Lou Barlow (Sebadoh), Loudon Wainwright III, Lucinda Williams, Lyle Lovett, Neil Young, Paul Kelly, Randy Newman, Regina Spektor, Ray LaMontagne, Robyn Hitchcock, Ryan Adams, Yo La Tengo, Woody Guthrie, Wilco, The Velvet Underground, Van Morrison, Tom Waits.......and More... I would suggest when we hit a critical number of people we get together for an intial meeting to discuss our interests and the group.
