Halloween Spooktacular with The Levins & Scott Wolfson and Other Heroes
Nanuet Library, 149 Church St, Nanuet, NY
Halloween Spooktacular Bash at The Borderline Folk Music Club!
Indie powerhouse Scott Wolfson and Other Heroes & The Levins duo will bring their infectious music and sense of fun to the Borderline Folk Music Club for some Pre-Halloween musical mischief and spine-tingling collaboration in this co-bill concert!
Scott Wolfson and Other Heroes have been lighting up stages with their high-energy brand of multifaceted Americana music since 2011. Seamlessly welding folk, blues, country, Broadway, and rock n’roll into a smart, rootsy, compelling sound, Scott and the band join it with a razor-sharp wit to seek out the humanity in moments of love, rage, and despair.
Through six years and two albums (2014’s Life on Fire and 2016’s Welcoming the Flood), they have earned rave reviews, airplay, and fans on festival stages and in listening rooms throughout the Northeast. They are 2016 Nerfa Formal Showcase artists and have appeared as Falcon Ridge Folk Festival’s “Most Wanted”artists.
With their infectious love of music, lyrical imagery, and Scott’s unconquerable voice soaring above the rich counterpoint laid down by Kirk, Matt, Mike, Chris, and Skyler, Scott Wolfson and Other Heroes set toes tapping and imaginations humming everywhere they go.
“This band doesn’t hesitate to ignite like a match on their fiery second collection, Welcoming The Flood. Listen to these dudes…these people are magicians…wizards…”
- John Apice, No Depression -
The Levins offer uplifting folk-pop that is warm and inviting without skating over the complexities of life. Guitar and piano, along with tightly blended unison vocals, reflect the couple’s own compatible musical and personal relationship which began with meeting at an open mike in Berkeley, CA. They are 2016 Nerfa Formal Showcase artists, 2014 Falcon Ridge Emerging Artists, CT Folk Festival Songwriter winners, and South Florida Folk Festival Songwriter Finalists. Their My Friend Hafiz CD, was selected by WFUV’s John Platt, as a top 10 CD of 2013. Their latest release, TRUST, debuted in the Top 10 on Folk radio and top 20 Roots Chart. Their music continues to connect on a universal level with a lighthearted depth and a celebration of our common humanity. They are currently recording new songs for a forthcoming 2018 release.
"The Levins speak to our better selves with their crystalline harmonies and uplifting lyrics.”
