  • Professor Louie and the Crowmatix

There can be no argument that Professor Louie and the Crowmatix are a Woodstock institution. Led by keyboardist, accordionist, singer, and producer Aaron “Professor Louie” Hurwitz, the long-running roots outfit has carried the proud local legacy of The Band for the last few decades—fittingly, as Hurwitz contributed to The Band’s last three albums and he frequently worked with Garth Hudson and the late Rick Danko and Levon Helm as a sideman. The Crowmatix just released Music from Hurley Mountain (Woodstock Records), their 12th album, which they’re plugging this Saturday with a set sponsored by Catskill Mountain Foundation at the Orpheum Film and Performing Arts Center in Tannersville.

Music from Hurley Mountain features 14 new tracks by the Grammy-nominated group, which also includes singer and pianist Miss Marie (Rick Danko), guitarist John Platania (Van Morrison), drummer Gary Burke (Bob Dylan, Joe Jackson), and bassist Frank Campbell (Steve Forbert, Levon Helm).

Enjoy this video for the album’s “Hurley Mountain Road”:

Professor Louie and the Crowmatix, Walt Michael, Tony Trischka, and Greg Dayton will perform on January 16 at 8pm at the Orpheum Film and Performing Arts Center in Tannersville, New York. Tickets are $35. For more information, call (845) 263-2063 or visit http://www.catskillmtn.org/.
