BEST OF 2018: Rick Sleeper’s Top 10 Musical Performances at the Cock ‘n Bull

0

By Rick Sleeper

Here’s my unsolicited account of some of my favorite moments of 2018. I realize that most of Nippertown’s readership has no idea where Galway is, what the Cock ‘n Bull is or who the hell I am (editor’s note: Rick is the owner), but… we’ve got an old barn with terrific acoustics, a great sound system, immensely talented technicians and some truly unforgettable performances that I’d like to share…

Larry Campbell & Teresa Williams, November 1

Tony Trischka’s “Of a Winter’s Night,” December 9

Jeffrey Foucault, October 13

Phoebe Hunt & the Gatherers, August 3

Evan Christopher & Eli Yamin, June 22

Mile Twelve, August 18

Honey Dewdrops, March 15

Scott Sharrard’s Residency, any of his four shows

Keith Pray & Tony Monaco, April 15

The list is in no particular order to this point… but my personal favorite moment in this barn this past year was when New Orleans piano legend Davell Crawford coaxed Galway’s own Angelina Valente to join him during his set on May 9.
