7:30 pm to 10:30 pm, Saturday October 7Kingston CoffeeHouse / Open Mic - The Hudson Valley Folk Guild
with Ian FlaniganAcoustic, Contemporary, and Singer-Songwriter
Ian Flanigan “inspires a nostalgic sentiment akin to wistful escapism… [he is] emotional without being weepy, vulnerable without being pitiful, and conceptual while still remaining relatable” (Gallagher, SUNY editorial). Flanigan's sound—an eclectic blend of progressive folk and percussive finger style—is reminiscent of the road less traveled, paved with poignant lyrical truths of his past. Local to upstate New York, Flanigan’s songwriting features his rich, husky voice and evocative lyrics highlighting the rural landscape of his compositions. Each song serenades the unity of life and an affinity for atonement—a sound that's provocative, and familiar.
The open mic portion of the evening is a great opportunity for newcomers and seasoned performers with a welcoming, appreciative audience. All styles of music or spoken word, folk &beyond.for more information and directionsKingston Chapter of the Hudson Valley Folk Guild
