Lansdowne Folk Club 2019 Fall Concert Schedule
Lansdowne Folk Club presents the Stable Shakers, a progressive Americana band with inter-tangling influences of folk, jazz, and country western themes on Thursday, September 26, 2019.
Held at the Twentieth Century Club, 84 S. Lansdowne Avenue, Lansdowne, PA, doors open at 7:00 PM and show begins at 7:30 PM. Tickets are $17 when purchased in advance online or with an advanced phone reservation and $20 without an advance reservation.
The Stable Shakers are an ever-changing, dynamic instrumental twang jazz group that have no intention on fitting into a cookie cutter genre. Hailing from the Cumberland Valley farmlands of Pennsylvania, the group formed after a serendipitous New Year’s Eve show at the Birchmere Music Hall, where backstage former Hello Strangers band-mates guitarist Spencer Pheil and bassist Tommy Hoy met with pedal steel player Dave Hadley (Bumper Jacksons), who currently fills out the instrumental outfit alongside long-time drummer and friend Jim Aguzzi. Together, the four embarked on an instrumental crusade to bring improvisation into genres that had traditional rigidity and are giving them a refreshing new life.
But don’t think the Stable Shakers will stop there. Shows continue to challenge and shift, as the group can perform with countless combinations of featured guest musicians, from keyboardists, to vocalists as well as changing from quartet to trio and duo. Many shows feature several sets of multiple configurations, all different, and yet all complementary to each other. Their brand of improvisation is meant to be visceral and tactile: music for the people. Check them out at https://www.stableshakers.com
Other upcoming concerts include Mara Levine and Gathering Time on October 24, Deb Callahan on November 21 and Stephen DiJoseph on December 5.
