You don’t have to be a folk fan to enjoy Eben Salter’s music.
You just have to like thoughtful lyrics, genuine feeling, fine guitar and mandolin picking and a voice both resonant and gentle.
Eben’s website, still under construction, won’t allow a direct link here to “Cross My Mind,” a mellow lover’s lament, so you’ll have to visit the site at
and download that tune.
Or just trust me! And come hear him this Friday.
This week’s guest has been playing “seriously” for a decade, but singing alone, in a band, or with his wife, Terry, even longer.
Eben will perform his own folk, bluegrass and traditional music at Acoustic Originals, Captain’s Pizza, 8 Bank St., from 5-7 p.m., on Friday, June 22. I will play my usual roundup of original folk.
Terry may grace us with some vocals as well.
The songwriter claims Yodeling Slim Clark, the Sons of the Pioneers, the Carter Family and the Stanley Brothers as some of his influences. He has new and longstanding originals to share.
We look forward to seeing you!
