Jake Armerding is a singer, producer, violinist, published author and “the most gifted and promising songwriter to emerge from the Boston folk scene in years” (Boston Globe).
Jake will be performing selections from his latest album, “Sweet Octave.”
Armerding draws on a wealth of influences in his music — contemporary folk, progressive bluegrass, classic folk-rock of the ’60s, and singer/songwriters of the ’70s and ’80s…
Openers will be Andy and Judy, a singer-songwriter folk duo from Pembroke.
About Music At Sanctuary Hall: MSH is an Edwardian-era architectural and acoustic wonder tucked away in East Weymouth’s Jackson Square. It is also the sanctuary of East Weymouth Congregational Church, United Church of Christ. Our Music Director describes It as “the best acoustics south of Boston’s Jordan Hall.”
Our concert season runs from September to May and includes a variety of artists performing folk, jazz, blues, classical, gospel and special Christmas/Holiday concerts in December and January.
