Our first show of the 2018 season, our fourth year bringing the best acoustic music to Westchester.
SCOTT WOLFSON AND OTHER HEROES have been lighting up stages with their high-energy brand of multifaceted Americana music since 2011. Seamlessly welding folk, blues, country, Broadway, and rock’n’roll into a smart, rootsy, compelling sound, Scott and the band join it with a razor-sharp wit to seek out the humanity in moments of love, rage, and despair. They were 2016 NERFA Formal Showcase Artists and Falcon Ridge Folk Festival “Most Wanted” artists.
“They’ve kicked it up another notch…. The band continues to mature and even the quieter songs carry a bit more drama. As the songs continue to spill out of Scott Wolfson’s fertile imagination, they keep getting more infectious and intriguing.” – Richard Cuccaro, Acoustic Live in NYC
