Cambridge Massachusetts has long been
the home of urban folk music in America. Andrew Lewis and Jake Garrels combine to embody that tradition, but also to forge a new one for a new generation of folkies.
Whether at a cozy Cambridge house concert, on stage in one of Boston's venerable venues, or before a vast festival crowd, their music always resonates in the hearts and heads of their audience.
With a combined 50 years of experience on stage and tens of thousands of miles of road under their feet, they are fully rooted while remaining remarkably fresh.
Jake's artful recrafting of traditional and classic tunes is a perfect foil for Andrew's articulate and tuneful song writing.
As a typical set opens, Andrew croons a soulful tune, Jake playing a compassionate accompaniment on second guitar; that might be followed with a rollicking blues lyric delivered with flawless enthusiasm by Jake; and within just a few numbers you know you're on your way to a deeply satisfying musical experience.
Sample of few of their clips, watch a video or two, but by all means get out and catch them live whenever you can. Their star is rising quickly and the "local" gigs will soon be few and far between.
