Eilen Jewell

Friday, May 31 at 7:30 PM
Bottomless Brewing
The Smith's Jan Regan Club Series

THIS SHOW IS SOLD OUT!

Eilen Jewell laughs when told her label’s president called her a musicologist. But she confirms she and her husband and bandmate, Jason Beek, have a passion for studying American music.

“We really love to uncover the past. It’s almost like digging for buried treasure,” she says. “For me, that’s where music is at. I like all kinds of music as long as there’s the word early in front of it.”

For her most recent album, Down Hearted Blues, on Signature Sounds, they unearthed 12 vintage gems written or made famous by an array of artists both renowned and obscure, from Willie Dixon and Memphis Minnie to Charles Sheffield and Betty James. Then, like expert stonecutters, they chiseled them into exciting new shapes and forms, honoring history while breathing new life into each discovery.

This show is part of The Smith’s Jan Regan Club Series and will take place at Bottomless Brewing in Geneva. Bottomless Brewing is the sponsor. Finger Lakes Public Radio WEOS 89.5 FM Geneva is the media sponsor.
