Folk Shredders Night (featuring Sandy Bull: No Deposit, No Return Blues, and live performance by Guy Blakeslee of The Entrance Band)
Knowing the notes and where to put your fingers is the simplest way of defining what a great guitarist does each time they lay down a weary tune. Whether part of declaring an Avatar or completing a sun cycle, devotees of the six-string player achieve bliss by just the pure act of listening with their eyes and following along with their ears. Tonight, get shredded by key selects of rarely screened footage by the likes of UK giants Bert Jansch, Ralph McTell, Jan Akkerman and Stefan Grossman hanging out and riffing hard together. Then, enjoy the testementary documentary Sandy Bull: No Deposit No Return Blues, made with loving care by his daughter KC Bull. For the uninitiated, Sandy Bull elevated the folk guitar scene of the '60s (centered primarily in Greenwich Village's Washington Square Park) by uniting cross-continental sounds with the ravagings of the ongoing psychedelic movement. End the night with a performance from Guy Blakeslee of The Entrance Band, and frolic beneath the black hole sun.
