This month’s concert, scheduled for Saturday, Nov. 19, is a first for Ethical Brew in two notable ways: We will present a big band in the form of Spuyten Duyvil, a six-piece ensemble of talented players. More important, this is the first Ethical Brew concert to raise awareness of the critical, timely issue of gun violence.
Spuyten Duyvil is popular for its unique brand of American roots music. Headed by songwriting couple Mark Miller and Beth Kaufman, this Yonkers-based group’s celebrated album “The Social Music Hour Vol. 1” was nominated for “Album of the Year” by Folk Alliance International.
Coming to The Brew from Toronto, singer/songwriter and storyteller Jory Nash blends elements of pop, jazz, folk, blues and soul. His acoustic guitar, piano and banjo and his warm,
unique voice complement his thoughtful lyrics and intricate melodies.
Fifty percent of the proceeds from this show will be donated to the Bergen County Brady Chapter, an organization that works against gun violence and which many of our members belong to.
