Session Americana w/ Ali McGuirk
Session Americana is a rock band in a teacup, or possibly a folk band in a whiskey bottle. This band/collective of talented musicians craft an musical experience unlike any other. The anything-could-happen feel of a Session show depends on craft that’s not accidental or easily won; they bring a kind of ease and genuineness to this timeless music, sometimes presenting the latest batch of original songs, sometimes reaching back into depths of the American “song bag.” Ali McGuirk is a blues/R&B singer-songwriter who has made a career of captivating audiences with her powerful, buttery voice and heartfelt songwriting. Her first full-length album, Slow Burn, was named on multiple year-end lists and contributed to her seven Boston Music Award nominations (she took home Blues Artist of the Year and Live Residency of the Year) and 2018 New England Music Award nomination for R&B Act of the Year.
