Sarah Lee Guthrie & Johnny Irion 

When: Thu., Oct. 24, 8 p.m. 2013
Price: $14-16
You might expect traipsing folk songs from Sarah Lee Guthrie, the daughter of Arlo and the granddaughter of Woody, and her longtime husband and collaborator, Johnny Irion. It's true, in part; the songs on the pair's new Wassaic Way are solid of foundation, with rich details and identifiable scenarios. But they're handled with a newfound pop bravura that suggests the classic bustle of Cat Stevens and the ineffable grace of The Kingsbury Manx. A record that balances lush with restraint at every turn, Wassaic Way is another expected charmer from the pair that simply charms in unexpected ways. They'll be bringing a full band, too. —Grayson Currin
