House Concert – Gill Landry
May 10, 2016 @ 7:00 pm - 10:30 pm
” …the four-way intersection between Dylan-inspired folk-rock, atmospheric Americana, dusty cowboy songs and street busker ballads.” – Rolling Stone
For a meat and potatoes opening to his bio, Gill Landry is a singer-songwriter and multi-instrumentalist from Louisiana. But he’s also a photographer, a traveler, a painter, a storyteller, a mechanic, etc… It would take a novel to tell his tale. From hustling the streets of Paris to hitchhiking America on day labor and daydreams, he’s slept beneath bridges with his brothers and in the beds of lordy estates. He began his music career busking on the streets of New Orleans, cutting his teeth through the ranks, interpreting life from the curb up. He released his first solo album “The Ballad of Lawless Soirez” in 2007 on the Nettwerk label and has been performing as a member of the band Old Crow Medicine Show since 2005. He’s opened legitimately and as a stowaway for a number of tours for such act’s as Mumford and Sons, Brandi Carlile, Ben Howard, The Felice Brothers, and many more.
His latest body of work, the self-titled album “Gill Landry”, features a brilliantly diverse, yet cohesive, body of songs and a diverse cast of characters as well. From the haunting duet with Laura Marling in “Take This Body” to the Tex-Mex country guitar sounds of “Fennario”, the songs are timeless, yet modern. His keen sense for lyricism is highlighted beautifully by the tonality and melody of the compositions.
Doors at 700pm, show starts at 730pm. Please note that this show is on the second floor and there is no elevator. We apologise for any inconvenience this.may cause.
