Abe Loomis will join November 4 Song & Story Swap
Please come share in an evening of music and stories at the Pioneer Valley Folklore Society Song & Story Swap.
Saturday, November 4, 7:00 p.m. at the The Nacul Center, 592 Main St., Amherst, Mass (see map).
Guest performer at the November 4 Song & Story Swap will be singer-songwriter Abe Loomis.
Western Massachusetts native Abe Loomis released his first full-length solo LP, The Early Treasuries, in 2014. That record — praised in the press for “transcendent songwriting and musicianship” — was a showcase of eclectic indie folk that included a slew of outstanding players.
He has emerged as one of the Northampton music scene's bright lights, writing exquisite songs, shining on guitar and banjo, and occasionally teaming up with local talents like David Chalfant, Eric Lee and Jim Henry.
His most recent work is called The Hoosac Line. Mixed by veteran producer Lorne Entress and drawing on disparate threads in American music, the album weaves together soulful song craft and world-class musicianship, boldly broadening the sonic repertoire of an award-winning American songwriter.
