THIS MONTH’S CONCERT
Marc Berger Performs Music of the American West – Sun., Sept. 21 from 3 p.m. – 4 p.m.
Clouds that forever stampede the endless sky, shadows gliding over canyon walls – the West is a vast expanse of magic and mystery. American artists from John Ford to Frederick Remington to A.B. Guthrie have used film, canvas and the printed page to convey the essence of its unique landscape and mythology. On Sunday, Sept. 21 at 3 p.m. Marc Berger will perform selections from his critically acclaimed album, RIDE, whose cinematic recordings capture the vastness and romance of the West’s wide open spaces.
“Reads like a love letter to the American West…..brims with pure plucky-folk that the likes of The Civil Wars, The Lumineers, and even Norah Jones are bringing to the forefront of popular music….a sad reminder of simpler times that most modern Americans will never experience nor appreciate…..one part Springsteen and one part Dylan, but with pure charisma that is all Berger”| Jayvee, TRT! The Roundtable.com
“It’s [RIDE] the breathtaking grandeur of the high desert and plateaus suspended between the pioneer days and ten minutes ago” - FAME (Folk & Acoustic Music Exchange)
RIDE is ALBUM OF THE YEAR – “Without a doubt, the greatest discovery for us in 2012; if not in our entire existence…makes the writers want to write and singers sing….an instant American Classic” - Nanobotrock.com
“Gritty, cinematic tales of the real west…at times stripped bare, at other times dramatic and haunting…an experience like no other album I’ve heard this year.” - MAVERICK, U.K.
