Village Nights Hosted by Richard Barone

Sunday, July 14, 6:30 pm

On July 14th, Village Nights presents two exciting, next-generation artists: Colin Gilmore, son of country singer/songwriter legend Jimmie Dale Gilmore, and Adam Traum, son of legendary Greenwich Village singer/songwriter Happy Traum. The two will perform together and separately for this special edition of Village Nights.

COLIN GILMORE grew up in Lubbock, Texas, spending many nights as a child in nightclubs like Stubbs, where he witnessed songwriters like Joe Ely, Terry Allen, and his own father, Jimmie Dale Gilmore, bring the stage to life. He later developed a taste for Buddy Holly, Townes Van Zandt, and bands like The Clash and The Pogues. For 14 years, Colin has been informed by these observations, writing songs and playing shows in a style that is truly his own. His three full length albums have won critical acclaim and a fan base that spans the world. His second album Goodnight Lane received 4-star reviews in Mojo and Uncut, and his latest album The Wild and Hollow was named "Best Americana/singer-songwriter album of 2013" by Huffington Post's Mike Ragogna. He recently performed in, wrote songs for and selected the other original songs for the film La Barracuda, which received loads of critical praise at the SXSW 2017 film festival and was noted for the effect the music had on the film. Colin is currently working on another album with celebrated producer-artist Richard Barone.

ADAM TRAUM is an interpreter of traditional roots music and draws on those styles in his songwriting as well. He cross-pollinates Americana genres, blending folk, blues, bluegrass, rockabilly and country-blues music. When Traum performs he brings a unique warmth to his well-polished show, whether he is playing as a solo artist at an intimate house concert or for a festival crowd backed by his potent band.


Adam’s influences include Ry Cooder, Taj Mahal, John Hiatt, Steve Earle, Mississippi John Hurt and Rev. Gary Davis, to name a few. Traum gigs and teaches throughout the San Francisco Bay Area and beyond. He has two instructional DVD guitar lessons on Homespun Tapes. Traum's newest release, "Just Like Home", is an all-acoustic collection of songs with an intimate feel, paying tribute to his musical heritage. His trio The Mosey Boys have a newly released CD called "One-takes."


About The Series

Since 1902, the Washington Square Hotel (formerly “The Earle”) has been a haven for writers, artists, and musicians. Take a minute and let these names sink in: Bob Dylan, Joan Baez, Bo Diddley, Maynard Ferguson, Chuck Berry, The Rolling Stones, Ernest Hemingway and Dylan Thomas. Yes, all of these greats—and more—have been guests at this iconic Greenwich Village landmark.

Washington Square Hotel hopes to build upon its rich history by launching a monthly salon series. 'Village Nights' will be curated and hosted by Greenwich Village musician, producer, author, legendary frontman for The Bongos, and longtime Villager, Richard Barone.

“Greenwich Village’s longstanding legacy as a center of cultural revolution and a haven for self-expression has always been best expressed through its nightlife. This freewheeling musical salon series celebrates the Village’s folk, jazz, and spoken-word heritage in a uniquely historic setting and offers a great night out!” says Barone.

  • Show times are at 6:30 p.m. in the hotel’s North Square Lounge. Doors open at 6pm.
