Marc Ribot belongs at or near the top of any list of the most remarkable guitarists of the last 30 years. At least. And he’s paying a rare return visit this Sunday at Quinn’s.

Ribot rose through the ranks of the New York underground with the Lounge Lizards in the 1980s and is probably best known for his quirky work with Tom Waits. He’s also brought his bent, instantly recognizable style to recordings by Elvis Costello, the Black Keys, John Zorn, Wilson Pickett, Marianne Faithful, Medeski, Martin and Wood, Brother Jack McDuff, Diana Krall, and even Elton John. With his own bands, among them Los Cubanos Postizos and Spiritual Unity, he’s explored Cuban music, free jazz, blues, no wave, and other genres.

Here’s his haunting appearance in Wim Wenders’s documentary The Soul of a Man, performing a version of Blind Willie Johnson’s “Dark Was the Night, Cold Was the Ground”:

Marc Ribot will perform at Quinn’s in Beacon, New York, on March 6 at 8pm. Tickets are $15. For more information, call (845) 202-7447 or visit https://www.facebook.com/QuinnsBeacon/.
