Friday, July 24 AND Saturday, July 25 (rain date: Sunday, 7/26):
Two nights of performances! Featuring musicians Stephen Bluhm and Brian Dewan, followed by a filmstrip projection by Dewan titled “The Tide Waits For No Man.”
BRIAN DEWAN is a visual artist and musician living in Catskill, NY. He will perform songs ancient and modern with accordion or autoharp accompaniment. He’ll project a filmstrip entitled The Tide Waits For No Man, and pepper the evening with some poetry as well.
STEPHEN BLUHM charismatically charms audiences with finely crafted, whimsical pop music, and huge stage presence to boot. Stephen has an endless ability to dream up unexpected but super catchy melodies and words, employing influences from 80s synth pop, to musical theater, to orchestral music. He even loves to have fun on stage, eschewing the too-cool vibe you’re used to.
A recent reviewer: “I will never forget the first time I saw Stephen Bluhm perform. It was one of those “wow” moments that stick with you. He did a short set opening for Future Bible Heroes at Helsinki Hudson. He appeared by himself, backed by a boombox (aha, I thought – very David Byrne). But the sound that came out of his mouth, and the big music that he had behind him – I thought, why is this incredible entertainer just a shy guy who you often see around town if you spend any time walking up and down Warren Street? One of the things I love about Stephen is how he transforms from a relatively self-effacing, modest man-about-town into a guy who was seemingly born to command a stage.”
Among his favorite artists Bluhm counts Burt Bacharach, the Beach Boys, Erasure, ABBA, and Stephen Sondheim.
