Sacramento and Brooklyn Come Together in Intimate Duo
Apr 7, 2014 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm| 5 donation
Sacramento guitarist Ross Hammond joins Brooklyn local Daryl Shawn for a unique set of folk standards and free improvisations at The Way Station on Monday, April 7. The Way Station is located at 683 Washington Ave., in Prospect Heights. Music begins at 7 pm, and admission is by a $5 voluntary donation, limited to those 21 and over.
Active on both the West and East Coasts, Ross Hammond has performed with many well-known musicians, including Oliver Lake, Calvin Weston, Ken Filiano, and Scott Amendola. His 11th and most recent album is Cathedrals, released in June and featuring his quartet with saxophonist Vinny Golia, bassist Steuart Liebig and drummer Alex Cline.
Nylon-string guitarist Daryl Shawn blends the techniques of flamenco and classical guitar with rhythms from around the world. He is frequently on the road and has developed a taste for endurance challenges, from undertaking solo tours of up to 45 dates by train and bus to doing a full set in each of New York’s five boroughs in one marathon day of performance.
“Ross Hammond is no doubt the best unknown electric guitarist I’ve heard in many years and this disc is proof of his ambitious abilities…” -Bruce Gallanter, Downtown Music Gallery Newsletter
“Daryl Shawn is one of those acoustic guitar gems that can seize you and drag you along with him in an erratic dance in the pick of a string.” – Deli Magazine, New York
