AUBURN, Maine — Bald Hill, those surprisingly hep purveyors of blues-inflected newgrass, folk rock and Americana, returns to the Side By Each Brewery on Saturday night, Jan. 22. The doors there at 110 Minot Ave. open at 11 a.m. The music begins at 6 p.m.
Bald Hill has accepted the invitation to perform monthly, in residence, all winter long at Side By Each. Next month, the band will host at SBE its annual All Dead Revue, a wildly popular Grateful Dead tribute featuring a collaboration of Bald Hill and multiple area musicians, a.k.a. Friends of Bald Hill (FOBH). Watch this space for further information on precise February dates — and news of other engagements.
Meanwhile, the Jan. 22 gig will showcase its own FOBH, the inimitable Frank Fotusky, sitting in on lead guitar. Frank plugs in to play with Yellow Sun Wreckers, a band featuring BH vocalist Renée St. Jean. But Fotusky is a nationally recognized virtuoso in the acoustic discipline known as piedmont-style blues. Indeed, Frank just released a new album last week, “Digging In John’s Backyard.”
Another great show in the offing. Y’all should come.
