New York based blues and country band the Dough Rollers will play at Chroma Studios in Downtown Albuquerque tonight at 7pm, yet another great show from our Intimate Concert Series.
Doors open at 7 p.m. and the show starts at 7:30. Tickets are $10 at the door.
The Dough Rollers are made up of Malcolm Ford on mandolin and lead vocals, Julia Tepper on fiddle and vocals, and Jack Byrne on guitars and vocals. The band says it came together in late 2008 based on a mutual appreciation for the music of early-20th-century America. They have been playing steadily in the New York and Los Angeles areas since. The band describes its influences as including Charley Patton, the Memphis Jug Band, Gid Tanner and his Skillet-Lickers, Johnny Horton, Bob Wills, and the gospel of Professor Johnson, giving rise to a wide-ranging repertoire. Recently, they have been featured on 88.9 KXLU, Los Angeles, and AM 1700 WPMD, Cerritos, and will be playing dates nationally through the end of the summer. The band’s MySpace page is at http://www.myspace.com/malcolmandjack.
This Friday is our monthly 1st Friday opening from 6-10pm. This month’s featured artist is Brendan Gould and his show “A Little Support” is a collection of his recent portrait paintings in oil and drawings in charcoal. In addition to more great new art, we will have Dave Hoover playing his beautiful harp music in the performance space.
