The summer concerts in the courtyard continue!
Thus far we’ve had lovely weather for drinking in the sounds of talented musicians. Next on the docket is ‘Acoustic Truffle’ that will playing on Thursday, July 28th, at 6:30pm. (In the event of inclement weather this event will be moved inside.) Truffle acoustic trio consists of David Bailey (bass, vocals), Ned Chase (mandolin, guitar, lap steel & vocals), and Dave Gerard (vocals, acoustic & resonator guitars). These three musicians have been creating music together since 1986. They have performed in all but ten states across the U.S., playing as many as 275 shows in one year.
Truffle has achieved widespread popularity by headlining many respected venues as well as sharing the stage with international acts as Little Feat, Phish, The Band, Dave Matthew’s Band, David Lindley, and Blues Traveler to name only a few.
Truffle has released five albums (including ‘Nervous Laughter” on the November/Sony label) as well as contributing to Gerard’s four solo records, and assorted compilations. Their music has also appeared on multiple major motion picture soundtracks. Their latest, ‘That’s Right” is a collection of songs penned and arranged by all the members; with quality song writing, memorable melodies and tasty production, it is by far their most mature record to date. They have also contributed to all of Gerard’s solo albums, including the 2009 release ‘The Zoomy Trail”; voted best local/ regional CD of 2009 by Portsmouth NH’s WSCA radio. And the 2015 release ‘FIVE”; coming in in the top 15 CD’s of New England with FIVE stars by Edge Magazine.
The trio’s groove-driven acoustic style has a sound all its own. With elements of soul, bluegrass, R&B, and world beat, they bring a well-rounded set of ‘music-Americana” to the stage. Their love of acoustic music, and a different set list and approach from their electric shows, creates truly unique listening experience.
This event is generously sponsored by the Atkinson Women’s Civic Club.
