POOR OLD SHINE
Friday, Nov 22, 2013 - 8:00 pm, $15.00



Poor Old Shine Website

with special guests C C Vagabonds

From their handpainted CD cases wrought from cereal boxes to their thoughtful arrangements, Poor Old Shine, an Alt Americana band from rural Connecticut, is about honesty and handcrafted creativity. They travel with an assortment of instruments including guitars, banjos, pump organ, mandolin, string bass, musical saw, washboard, and a yard-sale-scrap-metal drum set. It's old songs with a new feel, banjos with paint peeled, shoes with holes and treadless soles, and music that is real.

Poor Old Shine features Chris Freeman (banjo), Max Shakun (guitar, pump organ), Antonio Alcorn (mandolin, banjo), and Harrison Goodale (bass). The band grew out of late night jam sessions at the University of Connecticut's Folk Music Society. On December 13, 2010, through a series of misunderstandings, a group of folk music club participants was accidentally booked for a show at Toad's Place (New Haven, CT), before any of them was aware they were in a band. And thus Poor Old Shine was born. Since then, they have played to sellout crowds at some of the best venues in New England, including Infinity Music Hall (Norfolk, CT), The Iron Horse (Northampton, MA), Club Passim (Boston, MA), Rockwood Music Hall (New York, NY), and the John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts (Washington, DC). In the summer of 2012 Poor Old Shine appeared at the Falcon Ridge Folk Festival (Hillsdale, NY), and in September traveled to California to perform at the National Heirloom Festival in Santa Rosa, CA.

The Latest News

Fri, Jan 17, 2014 - LIVE: Guy Davis @ WAMC-FM’s The Linda, 1/17/14

Guy Davis prefaced his lightning-fast opening number at The Linda by saying, "I've stolen so much, this song doesn't even have a title!" And even if he hadn't name-checked Charlie Patton and Blind Willie McTell after it was all over, the SRO crowd could easily hear about 100 years of the blues coursing through Davis' acoustic 12-string guitar, right down to the off-time beat that recalled Robert Johnson's original version of "Crossroads." But as Davis says he tells his students, "It's okay to steal music - but once you steal it, you have to earn it!" Read More
