Lately, Woodstock-area singer-songwriter Simi Stone has been making a lot of noise—joyful noise, as befits her catchy pop and danceable soul-inflected tunes. And every Monday this month she’s bringing the noise to the Falcon for a much-talked about performance residency.
Stone, who plays violin, guitar, and percussion, has perhaps been most visible in the Hudson Valley via her membership in Simone Felice’s short-lived project the Duke and the King. She’s also performed with comedian Denis Leary’s band on Conan O’Brien’s television show, “Conan”; led Slithy Toves, Suffrajet, and other bands; and shared stages with the Roots, Erykah Badu, Conor Oberst, Natalie Merchant, Cheap Trick, Urge Overkill, and Joan Jett. Stone’s crowd-funded, soon-to-be-released solo album features drummer Zack Alford (Bruce Springsteen, David Bowie, Vernon Reid) and bassists Sara Lee (Gang of Four, B-52s, Ani DiFranco) and Gail Ann Dorsey (David Bowie, Tears for Fears).
Simi Stone will perform at the Falcon in Marlboro, New York, on March 17, 24, and 31 at 8pm. Donation requested. For more information, call (845) 236-7970 or visit http://www.liveatthefalcon.com/.
