Folk has arrived in port at the Hotel Vernon, April 30

Local talent James Keyes sent this along to me, and I just HAD to share!

Traditional and modern folk music are making a strong showing in Worcester.  Amidst the punk and hard rock at the Hotel Vernon, the Kelley Square venue known for it’s support of the local rock community, is also offering up something a little more old timey for those who like their amps set slightly below 11.

On Friday April 30, three of the areas well known acts will perform at The Ship Room of the Vernon.

The Boston and Maine String Band (www.myspace.com/bostonandmainestringband) start off the night with authentic old time string music.  It’s a family act with brothers Zack and Stepan switching between guitar, mandolin and banjo, their father Wolf on bass, and Zack’s fiance’ Laurie on fiddle.  The band blends originals and traditional music and never fail to win over a room of people with their energetic hoedown party vibe.

Midriff recording artist Ian Adams (http://www.myspace.com/ianquotequotadams) follows with his darker creepier vision of folk music, descendant from equal parts rockabilly, horror movies and gothic Americana.  Adams, a veteran of the Boston rock scene has paired down his volume lately but given up none of his trademark howl and intensity in switching to the acoustic guitar. His record “Stay Up Late” shows that if anything, his style is even more defined as it grows more personal.

Closing the night is Worcester songwriter James Keyes (www.myspace.com/jameskeyesmusic), who’s new album “Ruminations” has been gaining airplay all around the country and recently as far away as Belgium. The deep voiced Keyes has been making a name for himself regionally since the album’s release in January with shows all over the Northeast and most recently with a performance at the Worcester Art Museum.  His music has been described as “dark folk” and occupies that strange space between folk, deep blues and country music.

Folk music isn’t for your grandparents anymore.  Come check out three modern acts putting their spin on this venerable and still vital art form.
