Auld String Theory

$12 Adv / $15 At the Door

An evening with Auld String Theory.
To listen to samples, visit www.auldstringtheory.com

Float interweaving mandolin and hammered dulcimer melodies over top of a shifting and twisting banjo and guitar rhythm section, and mix up the repertoire from Celtic, Old Time, and American Song influences.

Toss in some whistle, accordion, handpan and clarinet now and then, and divide the selections evenly between sung songs, reels, and jigs/waltzes.

Consisting of Andy Andrews, Fred and Heidi Frayer, Jim Klingler, Bill Russell, and Terry McGrath: that’s Auld String Theory.

Playing throughout NYC in some of the city’s top clubs and venues, this duo continues wowing packed audiences with thoughtful lyrics, intricate melodies and unexpected instrumentation.

Michael Braunfeld and the Boneyard Hounds
DRIVER CD Release Show

$18 Adv / $20 At the Door

An evening with Michael Braunfeld and the Boneyard Hounds.
To listen to samples, visit www.michaelbraunfeld.com

Michael Braunfeld is, first and foremost, a storyteller. His songs capture the everyday triumphs and struggles of ordinary people. His characters - though trapped in the particular circumstances of their own lives - appeal to a universal audience. Michael was welcomed into the Writers Night Family at The Bluebird Cafe in 2014 and was named a finalist in the Grassy Hill Kerrville New Folk Competition in both 2016 and 2018. From sold out listening rooms to main stages at festivals, whether solo or with his band, the Boneyard Hounds, Michael is delighting old fans and winning over new audiences at every stop.

A unique, triple threat artist at the height of his craft, Michael Braunfeld is writing his best songs yet. And onstage, he is a commanding presence. Whether creating compelling everyman characters out of whole cloth, mining his personal history, or addressing topical issues, Michael's performances combine a powerful guitar style with a seemingly endless supply of urgency. And he has a pretty sneaky sense of humor too.
