It must be spring: The Empire State Railway Museum in Phoenicia is alive with the sound of music once again. Flying Cat Music, a small independent music series run by our own Tom Rinaldo, kicks off its 2012 season tonight, with a special performance by Sloan Wainwright. (Yes, she's one of Those Wainwrights: younger sister to Loudon, aunt to Rufus and Martha, and "sister-out-law" to Suzzy Roche and the late, great Kate McGarrigle.)
Sloan isn't the most famous Wainwright -- the Chicago Sun-Times calls her "the undiscovered treasure of this musical dynasty" -- but she's been refining her own brand of rich, soulful, funk-inflected folk for decades, and has eight albums under her belt. The latest, Upside Down & Under My Heart, was recorded last year at TubaDizzy Studios in the Bronx.
7:30pm, Sunday, March 25. Empire State Railway Museum, 70 Lower High Street, Phoenicia. Admission: $15 with RSVP to [email protected], or $18 at the door.
