Event description

Description

Award-winning songwriter Bob Wright, a multi-instrumentalist steeped in the American musical roots traditions often referred to as Americana, presents an evening of songs about Staten Island and its harbor environs. Bob sets the stage with vocals, banjo, guitar, mandolin, and songwriting. He is joined by Bill Doerge on double bass, guitar, 12 string guitar, accordion, piano, keyboards, and vocals; Bob Conroy on vocals, banjo, guitar; and Jan Christensen on vocals, and 6 and 12 string guitars. This coterie of musical friends presents an evening of mountain music that meets the sea.

A native of Staten Island, Bob has been playing music since childhood. His songs are often mistaken for traditional songs because their immigrant roots run deep beneath the surface of America and back to the places they came from for nurturing and inspiration. They surface in a modern world, constructed with a modern sensibility and a comforting resonance with the past..

ABOUT THE TAVERN CONCERT SERIES

The Guyon Tavern (circa 1819) serves up an authentic 19th century acoustic music experience with a warm and resonant sound quality that is rarely found anymore, thanks to the original aged wood and plaster, and the unmistakable handmade construction.

The room is pure acoustics, the ambiance is pure magic. Filled with candles and heated by a wood-burning pot belly stove, the tavern comes to life with period-authentic servers pouring mugs of beer, wine, and hot mulled cider to the cool sounds of authentic Americana.

Come with some friends, leave with a few more. Warm the winter away with the James Guyon Jr. Tavern Concert Series.
