With just enough space to create an intimate listening atmosphere, not a hole in the wall, more like a hole on the corner, Banjo Jim’s hosts an eclectic mix of performers. The perfect setting for some folk, rock and alternative music, singer musician Lorraine Leckie spoke “The Language of the Night,” (From her latest recording). Her unusual spins and metaphors about usual happenings, friends, family and society, provoke contemplation and stimulate the spirit.
Accompanied by “Legendary” (Ok, someone has to say it.), NYC Blues Man Hugh Pool on the guitar, patrons truly deemed themselves lucky this frozen Manhattan Saturday night. Hugh’s prowess on guitar and harmonica is second to none. With his “Mulebone” partner, flute master John Ragusa, he frequently tours the U.S. and Europe. Last summer, they opened for Arlo Guthrie in Erie, Pa.
