R.J. Malloy's Compleat History of Irish Music in 60 Minutes
September 16, 2017, 7:30pm - September 16, 2017, 9:00pm
ABOUT THE ARTIST & SHOW:
I love all types of music and I've dabbled in everything from classical viola to steel resonator blues. In my years as a master luthier, I've learned to play just about anything with strings, along with my love of acoustic guitar. So it was hard to sit down and assign a style of music to me. But venue owners, booking agents, radio DJ's, and publicists demand to know so I'd say Americana, folk, and blues, that's pretty close, but there's more.I'm an independent music lover and player. No "formula" music for me. I listen to the original music that's playing on the street and in the bars, which to me is the real music of the human condition. So I sing and write songs that make you feel your humanness, your lot in the common give and take of our time. If you can sit through one of my sets and not feel something other than the beat, then you need to check your pulse. Or else I'm just not doing my job."So tell me, R.J., what type of music do you play; Americana, folk or blues?"I'd say just the stuff that makes you feel human. You know: love, loss, success, public drunkenness and such. And I do it with every acoustic genre I can squeeze it into folk, blues, bluegrass, country, Irish, classical.You get the picture... Now come and listen to my music.
