The Matchsellers Play at The Anchor | January 9

January 9. Indiana/Missouri duo the Matchsellers—singer and guitarist Andrew Morris and singer and violinist Julie Bates—became a musical match when in 2012, when they met while teaching abroad in Leipzig, Germany. While primarily rooted in old-time and bluegrass styles, the duo’s music also takes in their respective blues and classical backgrounds, winning them much NPR airplay and folk-blog hollas.

Their recently released second album, Songs We Made Up, features tight vocal harmonies, beautiful waltzes, and “[songs about] stolen crackers.” For this date, the rambling twosome sidles into the Anchor for the venue’s post-holiday season vacation reopening. (PUNK 45 night promises raucous cuts DJed by Sean McDevitt and your music editor January 11.) 9:30pm. Free. (845) 853-8124;
