Nightlife Highlights: Robert Sarazin Blake 

click to enlarge nh_rsblake10.jpg

May 11-13. As befits his surname, Washington-based singer-songwriter Robert Sarazin Blake also happens to be one of today's greatest working wordsmiths; like William Blake, his story-poems pulse with rich, tangible imagery. Yet Sarazin Blake's songs are literally songs of innocence and experience, seasoned from years of playing pubs and coffeehouses across the US and the British Isles. His new double album, Recitative, was recorded locally with the unit he calls "the Hudson Valley's own Wrecking Crew": guitar slinger Connor Kennedy and his band Minstrel, who join him and other guests at the Colony Cafe for this three-night residency. (Tom Pacheco and Joseph McNulty serve up and swap songs May 27.) 7pm. $12, $15. Woodstock. (845) 679-7625.
