Walter Salas-Humara "Unplugged" at the Stanley-Whitman House!
Walter loves playing House Concerts and we are thrilled to have him perform unplugged for us at the Stanley-Whitman House in our Tavern Room. This will be a completely different experience from a club show- it will be up close and personal. All of the artifice is stripped away. No stage, no dressing room, no barrier between the performer and the audience. The show will seem like being one step closer to the way music was intended - an artist traveling from town to town, telling stories and making friends. We hope that you can join us for what will promise to be a terrific evening of music. Tickets are $20 and $15 for SWH Members. Walter currently has a new album out entitled "Work: Part Two". He will have LPs & CDs with him on the road and will be performing many new songs from the album.

Walter Salas-Humara is the chief songwriter for and a founding member of The Silos, a rock band formed in 1985 in New York City with Bob Rupe. The Silos were voted the Best New American Band in the Rolling Stone Critics Poll of 1987, and have released more than a dozen albums to date. As indicated by its name, which suggests both agrarian populism and impending apocalypse, the band shows influences of post-punk East Village experimentalism as well as the nascent country-rock revivalism that would return at decades end. As described by Stephen Holden in the New York Times, The bands austere style inflects the astringent twang of the Velvet Underground with the drone of R.E.M. and adds country-ish echoes that recall Gram Parsons. Salas-Humara has also recorded four solo records, numerous live albums and several one-offs with other songwriters, and has produced albums for other artists. He is of Cuban-American extraction and known for his occasional use of Spanish-language lyrics. He also works as a painter and visual artist.
