Marty O’Reilly and the Old Soul OrchestraMarty O’Reilly and the Old Soul Orchestra
8:00 pm @ Treehouse Café (4569 Lynwood Center Road NE)
Marty O’Reilly began his musical journey as a blues guitar player, with his ear pressed close to the ancient hiss in the works of Blind Willie Johnson, John Lee Hooker, and Leadbelly. Whether it be his original pieces, or his renditions of old American classics O’Reilly tells his story through an old and soulful voice. When performing with his trio, O’Reilly is backed by Jeff Kissell on the Double Bass and Chris Lynch on the fiddle. Their versatile musicianship, and soulful chemistry help to expand O’Reilly’s songs into pieces that drive like a ten pound hammer, or float like feather and flow seamlessly in-between. Admission: $10
