Saturday, October 26 – Leon Redbone @ Eddie’s Attic

The careers of performers who reside in the limelight are usually short-lived and over-overexposed. So it’s refreshing to encounter Leon Redbone, who has for decades remained so musically resonant and personally elusive. Though his iconic guise of white fedora, jacket and sunglasses has been thoroughly satirized, it’s easy to overlook what a genuinely gifted artist he remains – a role he inevitably tries to downplay. If there is one common element to Redbone’s diverse music it’s his mastery of his acoustic guitar. It is easy to get lost in his stage exploits and overlook what a truly fine player he is – fingerpicking with a ragtime bounce of jumping between chords with the grace of a hurdler.
Doors open at 6:30pm. Tickets are $30 in advance and $36 at the door.
