About Amy Laber
Longtime New Paltz-based troubadour Amy Laber’s music is a potent reminder of the power of simplicity, the depth of country soul, and the magic of an open heart. In his review of her latest CD, Mountainside Wildflower, Seth Rogovoy of Chronogram says, “Amy Laber’s vision of country music digs deep beyond superficialities of form and twang to the bedrock of soul music with a lower-case “s”—which, if you think about it, is what powers great music of any kind. Laber displays plenty of soul here, in her haunting vocals, which connect Loretta Lynn to Patti Smith; in her reliance on modal drones—the essence of blues and the DNA common to so much global folk-roots music, from Ireland to India to China and back again; and in her resonant writing about life and love and nature and music itself.” Amy’s guitar, banjo, and sultry alto comprise the core of the album’s seven originals, gloriously fleshed out by a cast of Americana luminaries: Cindy Cashdollar (guitarist for Bob Dylan, Van Morrison, and Ryan Adams), Neil Flanz (Steel Guitar Hall of Famer, sideman with Gram Parsons and Emmylou Harris), and Byron Isaacs (bassist for the Lumineers and Amy Helm). Written and recorded after years of gigs and traveling the countryside, Mountainside Wildflower is Amy’s testament to love, loss, and wonder, songs resonating from the back porch, to the club, to the theater.
About The Uncommon Gestures
Eric Squindo (vocals, guitar) Andrew Shober (vocals, bass) Lydia Pidlusky (vocals, clarinet)
Rustic Americana, lush harmonies and a defiant attitude give The Uncommon Gestures an energetic, foot-stomping drive while maintaining an acoustic root that touches the soul. Members of the band Mister Roper (Red Parlor Records), Squindo and Shober have been performing together since 2014. Lydia Pidlusky began sitting in on backup harmonies with their side project, Squindo/Shober, in 2016 and currently co-writes with Squindo.
After his self-released debut, Roadsick, was voted one of the top ten albums of 2003 by the Asbury Park Press, Eric Squindo began performing consistently throughout the Northeast and beyond. His deep passion for songwriting, ardent vocals, and a distinct rhythm style have gained him rave reviews and steady performances over the past fifteen years. A founding member of Mr. Roper, Squindo can be heard on their self-titled debut, and on his latest solo EP, The Brewery Sessions.
Classically trained at the Mason Gross School of the Arts, Andrew Shober moved to Woodstock in 2000 to assist at Levon Helm Studios. He helped bring the Midnight Rambles to fruition as a musician and stage technician where he worked alongside many of his biggest influences. The acts Andrew has been a part of include The Apple Pickers Union, Mister Roper, Love Eat Sleep (Burnell Pines), Acorn, and Kyle Esposito & the High Resolution.
With a degree in jazz vocal performance from SUNY New Paltz, Lydia Pidlusky has performed with some of the area’s finest jazz musicians, including opening the Hudson Valley Jazz Festival in 2017. The voice of ‘The ‘Maiden’ in the internationally beloved Stronghold video game soundtracks, Lydia also acts and directs with Theatre On The Road/Murder Cafe, and can be heard on 98.1 WKZE as host of the Midday Show.
