7th Annual John Hartford Tribute Night
“Just when you thought it couldn’t get no better then it does ...” The Seventh Annual Brooklyn John Hartford Tribute takes flight in all its steam­powered glory, featuring the Deadly Gentlemen, Tony Trischka, Michael Daves, Chris Eldridge, Kristin Andreassen and many, many more on their own and backed by the house band, the Electric Steam­ Powered Water Taxi Boys.
Friday, January 31, 2014, Littlefield, in Gowanus, Brooklyn, will ring to the sounds of John Hartford songs, masterfully performed on banjo, fiddle, electric guitar, piano, pedal steel, by the New York area’s finest musicians. The performances will reflect John Hartford’s stylistic base, with bluegrass, banjoed­up electric rock­n­roll, and old­time fiddle spread across two stages, over four hours. The show will also feature a crew of MCs that will entertain the crowd with comedy, burlesque, magic and other theatrics along with more performances by Eric Robertson & Duncan Wickel, The Amigos Band, Luke Richardson & Stephanie Coleman, Choban Elektrik, Cricket Tell the Weather, Big Eyed Rabbit, Alex Mallett, Sean Condron, Chris Miller, and Melody Berger.
