Sylvester Manor Presents "New Moon Acoustic Blues Band"

 

NEW MOON ACOUSTIC BLUES BAND HOUSE CONCERT

Reintroducing & Revitalizing Traditional Blues To A Modern Audience

 

Shelter Island, NY: Sylvester Manor Educational Farm proudly presents New Moon Acoustic Blues Band, at the Manor House Music Room on Saturday, May 12, for two shows at 6:00 p.m. and 8:00 p.m.

 

Featuring Karl Schwarz and Gregory Morgan, the New Moon Blues Band is built around the sounds of traditional acoustic blues and spiritual tunes. Formed in the spring of 2016, they have developed a rich, full sound that stays true to the early acoustic blues. In an effort to recreate the emotion and feeling of America in the early 1900's, the band performs the music of artists such as the Reverend Gary Davis, Robert Johnson, Sam Chapmon, and Mississippi John Hurt.  Residing in New York City, New Moon harkens back to the time in the south when music was a relief from tireless labor, mistreatment and racism, singing the songs of working class America with energy and emotion.

 

Karl Schwarz is a guitarist and singer steeped in American folklore performing songs by his counterparts of old, from street corner buskers to train-hopping troubadours.

Gregory Morgan adds a contemporary feel to the traditional blues with his dynamic use of brush sticks, shakers and foot percussion, contributing to New Moon's unique sense of style and rhythm.

This performance is the third in Sylvester Manor's 2018 concert series, and the second of two shows this spring in the intimate Manor House Music Room. Seating is limited and advance reservations are strongly suggested. Tickets are $25 per person.

 

Visit www.sylvestermanor.org or call 631-749-0626 for tickets and information.

 

About Sylvester Manor Educational Farm: Once a Native American hunting and fishing ground, Sylvester Manor has since 1652 been home to eleven generations of its original European settler family. Over time, the place has been transformed from a slaveholding provisioning plantation to an Enlightenment-era farm, then to a pioneering food industrialist’s estate and today to an organic educational farm responsive to, and supported by, our neighbors and friends worldwide. In light of this history, we envision a farm, a community, and a world where people celebrate food, arts, and inventiveness in the everyday, with a spirit of fairness and joy.
