1st Friday with Alien Folklife - 2/1/13

Help us welcome a new duo to 1st Friday at the U. Club!

ALIEN FOLKLIFE presents a quirky blend of offbeat humorous pieces and heart-rending story songs, or "wrist-slitters and side-splitters." A shared passion for contemporary and traditional folk music brought Canadian Paul Mercer and New Yorker Joan Kosby together.

Joan's warm contralto and Paul's clear tenor combine to produce a vocal blend reminiscent of sibling duos. Their fingerstyle guitar work is crafted to support the lyrics without overshadowing them. Joan adds textural variety to Alien Folklife's sound with English concertina and percussion.

ALIEN FOLKLIFE will play in the Grille Room from 8:00 - 10:00 p.m. The performance is free and dinner will be served until 9:00 p.m., please call 518-463-1151 for reservations. On the first Friday of each month, as part of the University Club’s celebration of 1st Friday, one need not be a member to enjoy live music, dinner and dancing in the Grille Room, dress is casual, and cash and major credit cards are accepted.

Come be a part of the downtown arts walk that showcases Albany's thriving and lively art scene!
