My Gay Banjo, Sam Gleaves

When: Tue., June 27, 6:30 p.m. 2017

My Gay Banjo are folksy and fabulous. With equal parts glamour and homespun charm, the New York City duo transcends the Americana genre with an all-around queering of its classic tropes. Banjo picker Owen Taylor and guitar/ukulele player Julia Steele Allen play forlorn ballads, sweet love songs and few recognizable covers. Their music is deeply rooted in queerness, as evidenced by the title track from their 2012 album, Limp Wrist and a Steady Hand, and the song “How Many Kinds of Courage (Song for Chelsea Manning)” — the latter of which they penned for the controversial transgender whistleblower. My Gay Banjo perform on Tuesday, June 27, at the Plainfield Town Hall Opera House. Singer-songwriter Sam Gleaves opens.

Price: $10
