Amy Kucharik CD release party with Michael Valdez Trio, Tiger Moan
April 15, 2018 @ 7:00 pm - 10:30 pm$15 – $19
Kerrville New Folk winning songwriter and performer Amy Kucharik [/kuh-CHAR-ick/] celebrates the release of her second full-length album of original music, Until the Words Are Gone, with a live show featuring a 10-piece band that showcases the instrumentation of the recording. With her Boston-based bands Friends With Benefits and Tiger Moan, Amy energizes swing dance, folk festival and listening room audiences alike. Drawing from blues, folk and Vaudeville traditions and with a street-smart stagecraft honed in the subways of Boston, Amy transports her audience to a place both timeless and familiar, but nevertheless innovative. Combining poignant, witty lyricism and an infectious, danceable swing, Amy’s music has drawn comparisons to Maria Muldaur, Lake Street Dive, and Anais Mitchell. Amy was a formal showcase artist at SWRFA in 2015, and WFMT Folk DJ Rich Warren’s pick for the DJ showcase at NERFA in 2016. The new CD will be available to attendees, but otherwise releases in June this year. NEC Jazz Masters candidate Michael Valdez kicks off the evening with his jazz trio.
