The Egg in Albany continues to beef up its already hefty concert schedule with three new concert additions and one change in the schedule.
Due to a scheduling conflict, the Gerald Clayton Trio will not be performing at The Egg on November 5 as originally announced. Instead, jazz harmonica stylist Gregoire Maret will lead a quartet in the double-bill concert with jazz vocalist Gretchen Parlato and her band. Refunds are currently available at point of purchase. A new performance date for the Gerald Clayton Trio is TBA.
And here are those three new concert announcements:
Saturday, November 19, 8pm, Swyer Theatre, $28
For the past decade, Crooked Still has put their unique stamp on acoustic music, mixing old timey, bluegrass, folk and original songs as they expand the standard string band instrumentation of fiddle, banjo and bass by adding a cello. This will be the last performance by the band before they take a hiatus to pursue solo projects.
Sunday, November 20, 7:30pm, Swyer Theatre, $29.50
The Sam Bush Band
The Grammy Award-winning mandolin virtuoso and former leader of the Newgrass Revival, continues to be the driving force in the ever-evolving acoustic music scene.

In addition, he’s nominated as Musician of the Year by the Country Music Association.
