Review: Greg Klyma @ Musical Lairs


But that's enough about that.  I wanted to talk about the house concert I went to on Saturday night.  Greg Klyma played at Lee Bowers house (Musical Lairs)

Granted, the attendance wasn't as large as a few other house concerts I've seen there (We're About 9 and Terence Martin drew a little better), but it was still a great night. About a quarter of the audience had Buffalo/NW PA ties. three of us had seen Greg play at the Coffee Bean Cafe in Buffalo at one point or another. (You can take the guy out of Buffalo, but you can't take the Buffalo out of the guy.)  Greg hasn't played in Philly too much, so he hasn't built up much of a fan base in the area yet.

However.  With that being said, Greg strung together the best first set that I've heard from just about anyone in ages.  Greg was able to string together a series of songs to form a cohesive picture.  It ranks right up there with Iain Campbell Smith and Mike Ford in terms of using music to tell a story.

If you get a chance to go see Greg, do it.  He will be playing at the Brick Box at the Paramount Theatre in Rutland, VT (with Phil Henry!) on Friday, November 21st.  He's also playing a split bill with Anthony Da Costa at Caffe Lena on Saturday, December 6th.  (He's also playing on Saturday, December 12th at Banjo Jim's in NYC with Anthony.)  He's touring the USA, so go see him!

In other music news, Eddie From Ohio has launched a brand new website, replacing the Flash monstrosity that was their old "website".
