Mandolin ace and hillbilly rock'n'roller returns to the Lizard Lounge for two Tuesdays this month with his band HAYRIDE! featuring guitar zen master DUKE LEVINE and the kick ass rhythm section of ANDREW MAZZONE and BILLY BEARD. Special guest Dietrich Strause and his band open.
Jimmy Ryan is a longtime pillar of Beantown's roots music community, with close ties to the Twinemen, and a resume that includes his seminal work in the Blood Oranges in the 1980s, and with Morphine frontman Mark Sandman in Treat Her Orange in the '90s. His Hayride quartet includes nonpareil guitarist Duke Levine, bassist Andrew Mazzone and drummer Billy Beard - a veritable all star team of local roots maniacs.
Press for Dietrich Strause
"Strause's voice is mellifluous; his sound has traces of a young Paul Simon mixed with that Josh Ritter Midwestern wanderlust." Rich Kassirer, Modern Acoustic
"He writes poignantly about romance, innocence and the opposite poles of country vs. city life. a first-rate lyricist" Steve Morse, former music critic at the Boston Globe
"The songs are beautiful and moving. His subjects and sincere, stripped-down delivery call up all of the modern legends of song craftJeff Tweedy, Ryan Adams, and Jim Jamesand the sentiments linger for days, the ashtray always nearby." Jeff Wallace, My Secret Boston
