Eric Lindell returns to Friday Night Live this week
Winery Sponsor – Milano
Concert Sponsors – Beverley & David McChesney
Friday Night Live, Cloverdale’s free outdoor summer concert series, continues the 2014 season this Friday, August 22, with Eric Lindell.
With his musical roots planted in Northern California where he has an almost maniacally-loyal following, his music blossomed in New Orleans.
Lindell, who has been recording and performing his brand of Americana music for over 20 years, performs music that is as at home on your front porch on a warm summer evening as it is in a hot sweaty club on a Saturday night. It is southern soul music, infused with R&B and a touch of New Orleans funk. It is blues music, glazed with a taste of country. It is simple, heartfelt song writing; melodic guitar solos and an energized live performance.
His band’s rhythm section, Myles Weeks on upright bass and Will McMains on drums, have been with him for over four years, making their live performances incredibly tight and intuitive. Both players are young, but have a swing feel of much more seasoned musicians, making for pure honest American roots music at its finest.
Festivities begin at 5:30 p.m. in the 100 block of N. Cloverdale Blvd. with the Certified Farmers Market, which also offers a variety of craft vendors and food booths. Craft beer, local wines and non-alcoholic beverages are available for purchase during the evening. Local restaurants are open for early bird and late night specials. Music begins on the Downtown Plaza stage at 6:30 p.m.
Friday Night Live is produced by the Cloverdale Arts Alliance. Visit them online or call 894-4410 for more information.
