Multi-talented Matthew Carefully likes to keep his fans on their toes with his constant musical surprises. On Sunday evening at Caffe Lena in Saratoga Springs, he’ll be rolling out another one – a CD release party for the years-in-the-making soundtrack for “Brunswick,” director Nate Simms’ documentary film about land-use issues in Rensselaer County.
It’s likely to be a one-time-only performance, so if you want to see it, it’s a now-or-never kind of deal.
The soundtrack recording is acoustic and primarily instrumental, with Carefully playing all of the instruments. He also does some singing on the recording, along with Katie Hammon (Slender Shoulders, Bear Grass), who contributes vocals on two tracks.
But for Sunday’s performance Carefully has assembled a handful of musicians to accompany him, including Hammon, mandolinist Ian White and banjo player Mitch Masterson. Dubbed Matthew Carefully & the Bonesteel Memorial Concern, the band-for-the-night also features Carefully’s former Kamikaze Hearts bandmate Bob Buckley, marking the first joint public performance by the two musicians since the Hearts called it quits.
Saratoga Springs band Bailiwick will open the show.
And the film “Brunswick” will have its big-screen premiere at 7pm Wednesday at the Spectrum 8 Theatres in Albany.
Matthew Carefully & the Bonesteel Memorial Concern will perform the “Brunswick” soundtrack at Caffe Lena in Sarartoga Springs on Sunday (December 4). Bailiwick opens the show at 7pm. Tix are $10 in advance; $12 at the door.
