If the name Chandler Travis means anything to you, it means a combination of dazzling musicianship and fearless merry-making – in his many incarnations, the man has developed a fiercely loyal cult following… and with good reason. Sage-like and impish at the same time, he explores the terrains of love and life’s absurdities with rowdiness, tenderness and a sardonic faith in humanity that never wavers. Plus he makes a habit of wandering around in the audience, mid-song, which creates an aura that’s hard to describe: we’re witnesses and co-conspirators in something that feels magical.

Last Saturday, he brought his Chandler Travis Three-O traveling road show to Troy for an afternoon stop at the River Street Beat Shop followed by an evening performance at the Ale House.
