Julia Douglass “Good satirists deliver brutal observations with a wink. They’re ruthless as analysts, but blithe as storytellers. Julia Douglass navigates that balance expertly on her new CD, “Poor People on TV.” The disk finds this brainy New Yorker tipping society’s sacred cows with a sly delight . . . In the title track, Douglass skewers our collective lust for gawking at TV shows about the sad shenanigans of unfortunates . . . It’s that seesaw of sweet and sour that makes Douglass so valuable . . . One day, she might even become the Loudon Wainwright of her generation.” —Jim Farber, The New York Daily News

Ted Horan “While traveling in Spain I was entranced by the the melodic strains of local Gypsy flamenco music. In this weakened state I was set upon and robbed by a caravan of gypsies. Vowing revenge, I have assiduously studied the flamenco musical forms in hopes of weaving some spells of my own.”

Tribes Hill Presents: Kindred Folk, is a monthly concert series featuring some of the best singer-songwriters and musicians that the Hudson Valley (and beyond) has produced, at the EMBARK | Peekskill performance space, every third Sunday afternoon. Support has been very enthusiastic, with performances by acclaimed songwriters from Tribes Hill membership and beyond. Tribes Hill Presents: Kindred Folk shows are booked through December.
