John Cohen & Eli Smith

John Cohen & Eli SmithJohn Cohen (New Lost City Ramblers) and Eli Smith (Dust Busters, Down Hill Strugglers) share an admiration for old time music. They play authentic American folk music with that time-honored quality that is lost in today’s music scene. John, now 86, got involved with old time music in 1948 when he heard re-issues of 1920s string band recordings. Perhaps more than anybody, he and his collaborator Mike Seeger were responsible for promoting and preserving obscure rural Appalachian folk music during the middle 20th century. Eli carries on this work, stirring up a modern-day folk revival.

8 p.m. at the Unitarian Fellowship Hall, 420 Willa Road, Newark, Del. 19711

Tickets online now or at the door: Public $20; Seniors $17; BFOTM Members $15; Students with school ID $10; Ages 17 & under FREE!
