Joe Flood and Bill Gross

June 19 @ 8:00 pm - 10:00 pm | $12 in advance, $15 at door

Joe Flood and Bill Gross bring a unique blend of blues, jazz, and folk to the Buttonwood stage!

Joe Flood has worked with many of the great names in American roots music including The Band, Blues Traveler, Happy and Artie Traum, and the Bottle Rockets.  Playing a variety of stringed instruments, he delivers original material in what Karen Schoemer in the New York Times called “a gravelly voice that perfectly straddles the fence between country and the blues.” His songs inhabit a place where folk and blues roots meet the craft of Tin Pan Alley and the soul of the street.

For this show he will be sharing the bill with his old friend Bill Gross, a founding member of the Lost Wandering Blues and Jazz Band who first introduced Joe to the New York City blues scene in the 1980s and played on his 2001 Diesel Only recording “Cripplin’ Crutch” which earned a 4 star review in With a career spanning four decades on both sides of the Atlantic, and a resume too long to list, Bill now lives in Denmark, making this a rare opportunity to hear his great harmonica playing and vocal delivery.
