Music Scene: Oct. 19–25
Marc Black “proudly carries on the Woodstock tradition of dealing with life with all its social and political challenges ... one song at a time.”
So says the website for this eclectic folk-rocker who will perform at 7:30 p.m. Saturday, Oct. 20, at the KAFM Radio Room, 1310 Ute Ave.
Black’s subjects range from “good coffee to the scourge of hydro-fracking to his love for MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow,” according to http://www.marcblack.com, and his accolades include being ABC Radio’s Fame Games’ Folk Artist of the Year and a Grassy Hill Kerrville New Folk Competition finalist.
“He has been hailed by folk artist Happy Traum for his ‘timeless’ songs featuring ‘deep grooves, excellent playing and top-notch guitar and vocal,’” the site says.
One of Black’s songs that has recently received some attention internationally is “Sometime a Spark,” a song about Mohamed Bouazizi and the Arab Spring. The song led to an interview on Tunisian State Radio, Black’s website says.
Tickets to the concert are $15 and can be purchased at http://www.kafradio.org or by calling 241-8801, ext. 223. Seating is limited.
