JOHN REILLY & FRIENDS
FEATURING BECKY STARK AND TOM BROSSEAU
SATURDAY, JULY 26, 2014
Harbor Stage 12:05PM to 12:50PM
We at Third Man were long excited to work with John Reilly in any capacity. When we heard him play guitar and sing, we knew the music world needed to hear this facet of his talent. His duets with Tom Brosseau and Becky Stark are fantastic slices of folk blues and country imbibed with all the longing and dark gothic undertones one would expect bubbling under the surface of the old weird America. Mr Reilly has the real deal sincerity and chops to pull this music off in a very authentic way without ever resorting to pastiche or cliche. He’s a fantastic entertainer in every regard, and that’s why I am excited to announce his appearance at the 2014 Newport Folk Festival.
