Richard Barone Performs in Beacon This Sunday

  • Richard Barone

Richard Barone is the front man of one of my favorite bands of the early 1980s, the Bongos, and although he makes his home in New York, he’s no stranger to the Hudson Valley. Besides occasionally performing up here, he still works from time to time with Bongos bassist Rob Norris, who lives in Accord. On Sunday, Barone returns to the region for an engagement at the Towne Crier.

As an acclaimed singer-songwriter both with the Bongos and as a solo artist, Barone is well aware of the roots of his craft, and he mines that well deeply on his newest album, Sorrows & Promises: Greenwich Village in the 1960s. As you might surmise, the self-released set is a collection of songs originally recorded in that musically glorious decade by songwriters contemporaneous with the Village scene. Among the artists covered by Barone for the album are Dion, Fred Neil, the Velvet Underground, the Lovin’ Spoonful, Tim Hardin, and, of course, Bob Dylan.

Here, from Sorrows & Promises, Barone and guest players the Kennedys perform Simon and Garfunkel’s “Bleecker Street”:

Richard Barone will perform with Peter Calo and Chris Brown at the Towne Crier in Beacon, New York, on February 19 at 7:30pm. Tickets are $15. For more information, call (845) 855-1300 or visit http://www.townecrier.com/.
