The Marlborough Arts Center’s popular “4th Friday @ the Arts Cafe” musical evenings for July features the acoustic duo Deep Ellum on Friday, July 27, starting at 7:30 p.m. in the beautiful art filled Charles W. Hall Art Gallery at 231 North Main Street, Marlborough, CT.
Deep Ellum’s experienced musicians, Rich Johnson and Jon Swift, have performed separately, and together, while appearing on radio and TV shows, with various bands, and in many Connecticut venues featuring acoustic music. They call their playing an “Americana” mix of blues, old jazz, folk music, bluegrass, and oldies and are known for putting their distinctive stamp on each song they perform. They play a variety of instruments including the dobro with its distinctive sound. If you haven’t heard the dobro, this is a wonderful opportunity to do so. Deep Ellum’s style is so open and relaxed that everyone in the audience comes to feel like this is an evening with friends, sharing delightful music, and the stories behind it.
Admission is $10 per person. Doors open at 7:00 p.m. with the music beginning at 7:30 p.m. BYOWine. Other refreshments are available. Come early and peruse the variety of paintings now on exhibit in the Art Gallery by member artists. All of the art is for sale.
