Peter Joseph Burtt & The King Tide
w/ The Sam Chase
Friday, October 20, 2017 @ 9:00 pm - 12:30 am| $15
Peter Joseph Burtt has dedicated his whole life to the manifestation of his musical passions. The singer/songwriter/multi-instrumentalist draws from many sources of inspiration. He has gone deeper than most, having spent years living and studying with master musicians of Africa. Much of his music is played on traditional instruments, notably the lute-like Kora and the Mbira, or thumb piano. While tuned in to traditional African disciplines, the band’s sound is refreshingly progressive. They embody an uplifting, dance-inducing energy somewhere between the intersection of String Cheese Incident and Paul Simon. Adding to the spicy stew is one of our favorite guitarists – Zebuel Early; renowned for his work with Smoked Out Soul and Mama’s Cookin’.
Opener: The Sam Chase
A Crazy Horse favorite as seen with his band The Untraditional, this time we get to bask in the raw, unadulterated emotion of The Sam Chase solo. His finely crafted, whiskey-fueled Americana anthems are brimming with grit and sincerity.
