To those who have followed his three decade musical journey, it came as no surprise that Michael Eck was performing on his 49th birthday. The Jug Stomper, solo artist and Frank Jaklitsch sideman joined his Lost Radio Rounders cohort Tom Lindsay in the Old Chapel of McKownville United Methodist Church in Albany for the finale of the 2013 Third Friday Charity Concert Series. The concert was a sing-along program which also featured multi-instrumentalist Mike Kelley (the Sharks, Blotto) and percussionist Sam Zucchini (the Zucchini Brothers, Rodeo Barons).
Zucchini transitioned to guitarist and vocalist for Gary Davis’ “I Belong to the Band,” and second set opener “Angel Roll the Stone Away.” Mike Kelley’s vocals and dobro were featured on “Jesus on the Mainline,” and he and Rounder Tom Lindsay shared harmonies on “Kneel at the Cross.” Some of the biggest cheers of the evening came after Kelley’s performances at the Old Chapel’s upright piano.
Lost Radio Rounders – the vintage Americana duo of Tom Lindsay and Michael Eck – were joined by special guests Kevin Maul and Peggy Lecuyer of the Nellies for the second of the three monthly shows in their Third Friday Concert Series. Here they’re all performing the Flying Burrito Brothers classic “Sin City,” as part of the benefit soncert for Skye Farm Camp.
You can catch Lost Radio Rounders & Friends (guitarist-vocalists Kim Kilby and M.R. Poulopoulos, harmonicat-vocalist Ryan Dunham and bassist-vocalist Bob Ristau) in action at the Roots Music Festival at WAMC-FM’s The Linda in Albany on Saturday night (March 23). The fest also features performances by Brown Bird, Red Haired Strangers, James Edmond’s Heavenly Echoes and Olivia Quillio. The fest starts at 8pm. Tickets are $15, and all proceeds from the fest will benefit Pastor Charlie’s J.C. Club, which helps feed inner city children in Albany.
This three-month fall series of concerts taking place on the third Thursday of the month will find Lost Radio Rounders – the acoustic duo of Tom Lindsay and Michael Eck – and a stellar group of special guests exploring a wide variety of historic American spiritual music.
