Alejandro Escovedo

Escovedo’s acclaimed 7th album, The Boxing Mirror (produced by Velvet Underground guy John Cale, who has produced Patti Smith, Jonathan Richman and others) finds the artist mixing rock ‘n’ roll, pop-rock, Mexican-American and more as the songs trace his recovery from severe illness. Rolling Stone critic David Fricke has asked ‘What does it take to make this man a star?’ He’s already that for many of us.

Peter Case

Ex-Plimsoul Peter Case has played the Narrows before, doing a folk-rock kind of thing that has earned him a Grammy nomination and even a tribute album!

Beppe Gambetta

He lives in Italy, but much of his musical heart lies in the USA, where many of his influences–including Narrows alums Leo Kottke and Tony Rice–call home. He also cites Gypsy jazz guitar icon Django Reinhardt as an influence and often collaborates with Dawg music great David Grisman. This is a must show for serious students of the guitar.

Mary Ann Rossoni

Mary Ann Rossoni’s new CD Timber and Nails comes out a few weeks before the show. She’s a mainstay in the Providence folk/rock/alternative scene, but has earned airplay and recognition across the country. Her songs are tuneful, interesting and sometimes very funny! Al Basile is a former trumpet player for Roomful of Blues and still works with Duke Robillard, formerly of the group, on occasion.
