Farewell (for now)
Spuyten Duyvil returns to the Rockwood II Music Hall on Jan., 20 for its last New York appearance in 2018!
The acclaimed "high-octane Americana" band announces it is taking a break from touring, but not before a bang-up Farewell (For Now) performance at the Manhattan venue.
On January 20, Spuyten Duyvil (pronounced "SPITE-en DIE+vul") will return to one of its signature venues for a celebratory show before taking a hiatus from active touring. The announcement comes after a busy and successful recent run for the group, including annual performances at the Philadelphia Folk Festival and Caramoor American Roots Festival, regular appearances at Club Passim in Cambridge MA, Cafe Lena in Saratoga Springs NY and other storied coffeehouses across the US, and headlining Israel's Jacob's Ladder Folk Festival.
In 2016, the band's CD "The Social Music Hour Vol. 1," a spirited re-imagining of traditional folk songs, was nominated for "Album of the Year" by the International Folk Music Association, and its 2017 single "The Warmth of Other Suns" reached the International Folk DJ Top 20 list.
Over 10 years—and four CDs—the band has evolved from "the hottest new band in folk music" (WXPN DJ Gene Shay) to something like elder statesmen on the folk/Americana music scene. "Spuyten Duyvil are the real deal when it comes to roots revivalist Americana music...outstanding songwriters, accomplished musicians and a musical family atmosphere converge to make some of the most outstanding music around today." (William Hurly, The Alternate Root TV)
After maintaining an demanding performance schedule for nearly a decade, the band members decided they needed a little downtime to pursue other projects. Band leader Mark Miller recently opened a Board Game Cafe cafe, Hex & Company (www.hexnyc.com), guitar and fiddle player Jeremy Aaron (http://www.jeremyaaron.com/) is developing his solo career, drummer Jagoda will be on the road with his other band Swamp Cabbage, harmonica player Jim Meigs is writing a book, Beth is getting ready to teach ESL and bass player John Neidhart is moving to Atlanta. But the band will continue to get together for music and camaraderie, and—when the time is right—to perform again.
The Rockwood Music Hall is a beloved venue for the band, the place were it debuted its two most recent CDs and has performed many times. The January 20 show will conclude with eating, drinking and conversation for all guests above Rockwood III.
Please note, there is a one drink minimum for this show (standing and bar stools) and two drink minimum at tables.
Limited seating is available on a first come first served basis.
Advance tickets are available online until 5:30PM, day of show. Any remaining tickets can be purchased at the door at showtime.
