The Good Life – 6/1/18
THIS WEEK’S TOP TREAT
Sunday, June 3 at 8 p.m.
Firehouse Center for the Arts | Newburyport, Mass. | Firehouse.org | (978) 499-9931
Session Americana is a rock band in a tea cup, or possibly a folk band in a whiskey bottle. This collective of talented musicians craft a musical experience unlike any other. On stage is a collapsible bar table wired with microphones, a vintage suitcase recast as a kick drum, an old Estey field organ, a pre-war parlor guitar, a mandocello and all of its smaller siblings, a harmonica case fire damaged when Jack’s bar went up in flames and graffitied by Depeche Mode roadies, and an assortment of other instruments that get passed around in this freewheeling modern hootenanny.
