"Amy Gallatin and Stillwaters "

Sunday. Sept 20, 2009, 5:00 PM
At THE FIREBOX RESTAURANT
539 Broad St., Hartford, CT. 5:00-8:30 PM.
Sunday Night Bluegrass Series
With your hosts: Nick Novia-Joe DeLillo
The powerhouse duo of Amy Gallatin and renowned resophonic guitarist Roger Williams joined forces a few years ago to explore their mutual love of country standards, served up with an acoustic treatment in the bluegrass vein. The result is a toe-tapping blend of heartfelt vocals, soaring harmonies and red-hot picking, traditional yet modern and distinct.
Americana radio host Ed McKeon says: “Amy’s vocals, with the power and tone of her voice, are tempered by Roger’s baritone which has been sanded smooth by cigarettes and, shall we say, maturity. The song selections are perfect, the harmonies glorious, the sentiments wonderfully maudlin (like any good old country song).”
The two are enhanced by the recent addition of Roger’s son J.D., who–in the time-honored tradition of musical consanguinity–complements his father’s style perfectly, and by veteran bassist John Urbanik, who provides an additional texture to the vocal harmonies.
