A Window Shoppers’ Xmas with Joe Flood and George Breakfast

Playing a variety of stringed instruments, Joe Flood delivers original material in what Karen Schoemer in the New York Times called “a gravelly voice that perfectly straddles the fence between country and the blues.” His songs inhabit a place where folk and blues roots meet the craft of Tin Pan Alley and the soul of the street.  They have been covered by artists as diverse as the New Orleans style jazz band The Flying Neutruinos and Alt Country Chanteuse Laura Cantrell.

955- Electroacoustic Improvisation

This group was formed, almost by accident, in the fierce Connecticut winter of 2011 by like-minded musicians from drastically different backgrounds.  Comprised of an electronic percussionist/laptopist, and an effects addicted guitarist, 955 weaves a web of vast, chasmic sound that combines the electric, the electronic, and the acoustic seamlessly.  Some have called it “ambient,” “spacious,” and “cinematic,” which are quite appropriate and complementary adjectives.
