Acoustic Solos & Small Bites Series Schedule
June 23: Mike Miles, Rock & Blues Guitar
Greiser’s welcomes Easton native and Nashville recording artist Mike Miles back to our little “stage.” As the former lead singer and guitarist of bands Let the Good Times Roll and Shade of Blues, Mike plays a blend of rock, pop, blues, and country.
June 30: Jim Savage, New Orleans Piano on the Porch
Join us for the first Connecticut performance of recent Dallas transplant to Easton, Jim Savage, who plays an eclectic blend of Beatles, blues, classic rock favorites, and more. Before moving to town this year, Jim had been a staple in the Dallas music scene since the late 1980’s. As an original member of the Beatles cover band Hard Night’s Day, he was known for his unique John Lennon sound and style. He is also the leader of Big Chief and the Boogie-Woogie Wigwam, a New Orleans flavored rhythm and blues band that features Jim’s piano playing in the tradition of Professor Longhair and Dr John. We’re hoping the weather permits Jim to roll our piano out to the front porch.
July 14: Frank Pagliaro, From Old Timey to Indie, with the Beatles in between
He’s our morning-hours barista, he’s our in-house historian, and Frank Pagliaro is also a singer and musician. He chose Bastille Day for his show date. His songlist is an eclectic mix of all-English old-timey, 1920s, folk, soft rock, country, and Beatles tunes, but there will be something in store for the Francophiles among us!
July 28: Shannon McMahon, Original Folk
Shannon McMahon, a singer/songwriter from Stratford, also known as the Easton Public Library Assistant, creates contemporary folk music with rich vocals and songs that resonate with a strong sense of the human experience.
August 11: Lori Dillon, Upbeat Singer Songwriter
Singer songwriter Lori Dillon of Trumbull has played the Trumbull Arts Festival and the Fairfield Arts Festival, and volunteers as a performer at the Silver Hill Hospital in New Canaan and at Yale New Haven Children’s Hospital. In addition to original songs that she describes as “upbeat Easy Listening,” Lori will play popular tunes by artists like Sheryl Crow and Norah Jones.
August 18: Moxanne, Rock & Pop Classics
Moxanne, an acoustic trio featuring Moxanne herself on guitar and vocals with a standup bass player and a beatbox player, has previously played Greiser’s and the Easton Library, entertaining guests with upbeat familiar and delightful tunes.
