Announcing the Spencer Lewis Trio at Craftproducers 34th Annual Stowe Foliage Arts Festival, October 7th, 2016
Stowe, Vermont: Spencer Lewis will perform his signature combination of reflective instrumental folk grooves and old-time rhythms at this year’s Stowe Foliage Arts Festival. Joining him under the Craftproducer's music tent in Stowe on Oct 7th at 12:00 noon is Vermont’s well-known keyboardist Chas Eller and bassist Eric Graham from the group Haywire. Eller, known by many as the piano/organ/synth wizard from Kilimanjaro and the Unknown Blues Band, has played on many of Lewis’ albums including The Silence Between the Words and In the Light of Autumn. Lewis’ best selling 1993 release A Sense of Place was the first album ever mixed at Eller’s famous Charlotte Studio. Eric Graham plays both fretless and fretted electric bass and adds another dimension to Lewis’ instrumentals and impromptu passages. Both sidemen lend their creativity with the fierce improvisational energy that pervades much of Lewis’ live shows. They both appear on Lewis’s soon-to-be-released album From Now To Now, his first vocal album in 16 years.
About Spencer Lewis:
Spencer Lewis is a purveyor of reflective instrumental folk grooves and a singer-songwriter whose sound combines old-time rhythms with his own ‘folk that rocks’. His signature sound combines the precision of the acoustic guitar with the sustained elegance of the violin that he performs on stage by the live-looping of guitar and violin overdubs. This method of live-looping allows him to move in unpredictable directions, often spontaneously, drawing upon the varied compositions he has amassed from his internationally known 25-album catalog. Lewis released his 22nd instrumental album Souls in the spring of 2016. All of his music, including links to You Tube, Soundcloud and other exclusive material, can be found on his web site http://www.spencerlewismusic.com.
