Smart Bets: Tim O’Brien & Darrell Scott

Songwriters and buddies Tim O'Brien and Darrell Scott both have successful solo careers and pretty different musical styles. Yes, they're both rooted in folk and roots traditions, but O'Brien's songs tend to be upbeat, even humorous, while Scott's are stoic. Still, the two find plenty of common ground on their collaborations, which now aptly number two. Memories & Moments, the second studio album from the duo, dropped in September. Of the record, Scott says, “Our strength is playing in the moment." They'll do exactly that during a two (naturally) night stand at The Grey Eagle on Wednesday and Thursday, Nov. 20 and 21. 8 p.m., $28/$30. Photo by Scott Simontachi
