Maine-based band Old Soul will combine forces with local experimental act Squanto to bring Rochester a peaceful night of music. The two pair very well together, as both acts make complex yet idyllic folk music. Squanto's music is ambient in nature; the artist reaches beyond the folk singer-songwriter label by combining those qualities with an apparent affection for noise. Old Soul combines its use of traditional folk elements with warm horn arrangements and pop-inspired vocals and melodies, as well as occasionally delving into a gypsy-folk groove. Whether they choose to band together or simply play side-by-side, the two acts are sure to bring their audience some high quality, multifaceted folk music.
Old Soul & Squanto will perform on Tuesday, September 17, 7:30 p.m. at Boulder Coffee, 100 Alexander St. Free. bouldercoffee.info.
