Abe Loomis will join November 4 Song & Story Swap

Please come share in an evening of music and stories at the Pioneer Valley
Folklore Society Song & Story Swap.

Saturday, November 4, 7:00 p.m. at the The Nacul Center, 592 Main St.,
Amherst, Mass.

Guest performer at the November 4 Song & Story Swap will be
singer-songwriter Abe Loomis.

Western Massachusetts native Abe Loomis released his first full-length solo
LP, The Early Treasuries, in 2014. That record - praised in the press for
"transcendent songwriting and musicianship" - was a showcase of eclectic
indie folk that included a slew of outstanding players.

He has emerged as one of the Northampton music scene's bright lights,
writing exquisite songs, shining on guitar and banjo, and occasionally
teaming up with local talents like David Chalfant, Eric Lee and Jim Henry.

His most recent work is called The Hoosac Line. Mixed by veteran producer
Lorne Entress and drawing on disparate threads in American music, the album
weaves together soulful song craft and world-class musicianship, boldly
broadening the sonic repertoire of an award-winning American songwriter.

The Song & Story Swap is held on the first Saturday of each month, excepting
July and August, and is jointly sponsored by the Pioneer Valley Folklore
Society and the Nacul Center (http://www.nacul.com). Visit the Folklore
Society website at http://www.filbert.com/pvfs.

The Song & Story Swap is open to the public, free of charge with donations

stories and songs that are traditional, newly written, or of personal
experiences. You can tell, sing, or lead everyone in singing, or request a
song or story. Listeners are welcome.
