|Double Bill: Jeffrey Foucault and Roosevelt Dime|
Longtime disciple of the rich and strange music that sings behind the American veil, Foucault has spent the last decade mining the darker seams of country and blues, producing a string of spare and elemental albums of rare power while garnering accolades across the United States and overseas for a tersely elegant brand of songwriting set apart by its haunting imagery and weather-beaten cool. As the New York Times says, “Jeffrey Foucault is a young man with an old soul...contemporary and timeless.” He lives in Western Massachusetts.
Welcome to the world of Roosevelt Dime, a four-piece, Brooklyn, N.Y.-based band that blends elements of acoustic jug-band blues, classic New Orleans soul and neo-folk to create an original sound best described as Kings County Steamboat Soul. The band’s nontraditional lineup — consisting of banjo, electric and gut-bucket basses, percussion, clarinet, saxophone, and the occasional electric guitar — and seamless mixture of musical genres has been described as “a perpetual crowd-pleaser” by the New York Times. Now, the group is poised for a breakthrough with its new album Steamboat Soul.
