Start Date: 01 January 2016
End Date: 01 January 2016
Friday January 1st we will have Jesse Cotton Stone performing a down tempo blues set at the Speedtrap Palmer Lake. Starts at 8pm. Jesse Cotton Stone is a blues player through and through. He pushes the genre with his experimental down tempo project Algodon. A great way to recover after a night out New Years Eve and a great way to start 2016. ALGODON harvests the raw essence of American music at the root, weaving tradition with experimentation into an innovative musicology. The palate begins to overflow with a fusion of electro-organic tonality and rhythm derived from a versatile array of traditional and innovative sounds all the while a definitive common thread remains, reaching back to the cotton fields of the past, and stretching forth into the uncharted territories of the future, and beyond. In essence, it is the Evolution of the Cathartic Slave Music of North America known as The Blues Tradition.
