On Your Radar - February 12, 2019
Quarter Horse is made up of longtime friends and brothers. Their sound is reminiscent of vocal harmony-driven bands such as The Band, CSN, and Fleet Foxes. Their first full-length album was released in December of 2016, produced by Grammy winner Andy Falco (Infamous Stringdusters), and is noted for its compelling songwriting, arrangements and instrumentation. Live shows are equally captivating, from acoustic in an intimate house concert setting to fully electric on a big stage.
While growing up in a musical household, Linda Draper listened to everything from Bach to "Bop" from an early age, soon moving on to writing her own songs and playing guitar as a teenager. Originally from the Hudson Valley area, Linda moved to NYC in '99 where she has been recording and performing her music ever since, releasing 8 full-length albums. Over the years, Linda has opened for Teddy Thompson, Melissa Ferrick and Luka Bloom, among others. Jeff Eyrich (who played bass on her last album) will join Linda on upright bass for this special show!
This past December, Ray Lambiase released his fourth full-length CD, Kid Bayonne, which debuted at #7 on the Folk Alliance supported folk radio chart. He began writing and performing his own songs as a teenager on Long Island and took part with Jack Hardy in the launch of the Fast Folk Coop and the Greenwich Village music scene of the early 1980s. Celebrating a wide range of Americana genres, his songs frequently include stories that introduce listeners to a wide variety of memorable characters.
