In case you missed The Billy Sea‘s performance at this summer’s Bele Chere festival, the self-described “global Americana” band will perform this Friday at The Altamont Theatre. The show takes place on the second night of a two-day audio and video tracking session for the band’s upcoming album — the concert will be video taped.
About the Billy Sea: “Founded by slide guitar revolutionary Billy Cardine, the sound is firmly planted in American roots music, but also pulls influence from all corners of the world. Cardine, a classically trained pianist in his youth, eventually fell in love with the sound of the slide guitar and plays Dobro, Chaturangui, Weissenborn and Electric Steel guitars. River Guerguerian commands a wide range of musical styles on his unique blend of percussion instruments, combining elements and experience from all over the world, and resulting in a powerful rhythmic perspective that is both familiar and otherworldly. Bassist Jake Wolf adds his intricate and original mix of musical elements, as a powerful melodic voice and a driving rhythmic force on the 6 string bass.”
Friday, Nov. 18, 8 p.m. $12.
