An Evening of Faith Folk
Imaad Wasif Acoustic
Voice on Tape
Imaad Wasif will be playing a mostly acoustic set drawing from songs on all three of his records. Greg Burns from Red Sparowes will also be sitting in with him on pedal steel. Rumor has it that Imaad Wasif may sing the 30 minute unedited version of “The Hand of the Imposter (Is the Promise of my Own)” with all 666 verses. The otherworldly Becky Stark from Lavender Diamond is also playing and as mystery suggests could be doing some songs with her living sisters harmony trio featuring eleni mandell and inara george! Voice On Tape writes some of the most beautiful and tragic songs in the world and will be cutting open the night. Come early!
