Experimental Folk Arrives in the Form of Request Freebird and William Table at Scotty's Martini Lounge
One can imagine the unique folk experiments sure to be conjured at Scotty's Martini Lounge.
Thursday, June 21
This week, a pair of traveling artists from Boston will be stopping in Erie to perform at Scotty's Martini Lounge alongside a number of local acts. The tongue-in-cheek anti-folk stylings of Request Freebird appear fresh on the heels of a pair of 2016 releases: a three-song EP titled Sorry, I Don't Know That One and a full-length follow-up ironically titled You're Welcome, I Do Know These Ones. Joining Request Freebird is fellow Bostonian William Table, vocalist and guitarist of Old Table, an experimental folk-rock band that released their latest LP, SAVE THE ENVIRONMENT, in 2015, followed by a pair of new singles the following year.
Locals on the bill are largely solo acts including Gabe Poland of The New Morning Sunrise, Brent Knight of Shadow Tribe, and Jess Royer and McKenzie Sprague of Cult Classics. Reflecting on the recent releases of these artists and the fact that they are, for the most part, performing acoustically, one can imagine the unique folk experiments sure to be conjured throughout the night. — Aaron Mook
