Please join us for an intimate evening of folk music at the Charter Oak Cultural Center in downtown Hartford on Friday, February 18th.

New Haven's Mountain Movers have just followed up the release of their LP, Apple Mountain, with a brand-new cassette on their label, Car Crash Avoiders, and I am very excited for them to share their music us.

The Loom are a 6-piece chamber-folk group from Brooklyn who are touring on a haunting new EP with their good friends The Wailing Wall, an indie folk duo from Brooklyn that will add a good dose of electronics to their acoustic guitars. Both are not to be missed.

Starting off the evening will be Rachel Adele Cabaniol and Karl Messerschmidt of String Theorie/Hot Pocket Mafia, performing in their new project The Postmodern Panic. It's Rachel and Karl's first acoustic show for this project, so let's say we're witnessing history here.

With luck, Hartford's 6 1/2 feet of snow will melt away under the warmth of this show.
