It’s been less than a year since Basket Eddy’s Seann P. Clark and Potwhole’s Abby Barrett teamed up to become The Mighty Sea, but the alternative acoustic duo has already made an impact in Erie during their first 10 months together. The talented twosome will make their next stop with a free show at The King’s Rook Friday, Oct. 10, where you can see just why the duo has earned its fans.

Despite just being a two-part band, The Mighty Sea produces an intense full-formed whole sound, with beautifully brooding songs like “Scotch and Ice” and “Sailor’s Song.” The band released its first album earlier this year, which Erie Reader Managing Editor Ben Speggen accurately called “raw yet haunting” in his four-star review. Between Barrett’s beautiful work on the viola and Clark’s forceful vocals and strumming, The Mighty Sea provides a memorable sonic experience.

In addition to the musical stylings of Clark and Barrett, The King’s Rook will also host opening acts Brooke Surgener, who you may know as a member of the Erie Reader’s 40 Under 40, and Whitney Wright. Take the opportunity to see three great acts for the price of none with this killer free Friday show at The King’s Rook. 

9 p.m. Friday, Oct. 10 // 1921 Peach St. // facebook.com/kingsrookclub.
