Next Stage Arts Project and Twilight Music present folk/roots-rock band Session Americana at Next Stage on Friday, July 20 at 7:30 pm. Featuring Boston-based, multi-instrumentalists and singers Ry Cavanaugh, Billy Beard, Dinty Child, Jim Fitting and Jefferson Hamer, plus a rotating collective of guest musicians, the band’s raucous live shows are built around the community concept of traditional Irish seisiúns.
Blending vintage American roots music styles – from country to jazz to rock – Session Americana is a rock band in a tea cup, or possibly a folk band in a whiskey bottle. This band/collective of talented musicians craft a musical experience unlike any other.
