Probably coming too late, but here it is, anyway. At Jalopy (http://www.jalopy.biz) in Brooklyn, tonight.

About Pat Conte and Joe Bellulovich

Pat Conte and Joe Bellulovich will open for Spider John Koerner. Pat, a musicologist and radio personality from Secret Museum of the air, his lovely deep voice and fabulous guitar playing bring to life the blues and pre-blues that he loves.  He will be joined by Joe, playing harmonica and guitar. Joe was a member of The Empire State Gandy Dancers, playing with Conte and the late Bob Guida.

About Spider John Koerner

In the late 50s, SPIDER JOHN KOERNER borrowed guitar and a Burl Ives song book, and began a journey which helped shape the course of American country blues and folk music. Jalopy is honored to host Spider John's rare NYC appearance.

"This hoary Minneapolis singer-guitarist, who purportedly influenced everyone from Bob Dylan to Bonnie Raitt, skipped stardom on his way to becoming a hero. Returning with a rootsy album of traditional folk and wry originals, Koerner shows that 4 decades of obscurity haven?t diminished his talent for making engaging music out of wholly familiar elements" -Tom Sinclair, Entertainment Weekly.

For over 40 years, John Koerner has explored the ranges of traditional American song, as a solo artist and with a variety of partners. In a salute to the traditional roots of Bob Dylan, John Koerner and Dave Ray contributed the track Delia to the Redhouse tribute recording A Nod to Bob released in April 2001 for Dylan's 60th birthday.

"He has a real unique style of guitar playing & a great talking blues style of delivery. As all great originators, like Woody Guthrie or Bob Dylan, anybody else who tries to imitate them would just look like that, an imitator. I do "I Ain?t Blue" in my shows and recorded it on my first album. It?s one of my favorite songs of John?s, but his other songs I love to play just for my own enjoyment; but I can never come close to playing them as well as he does." Bonnie Raitt

John Koerner is a frequent guest on Garrison Keillor?s Prairie Home Companion, most recently appearing on the 2/1/03 Joke Show Special, performing with a Minneapolis friend as "Outdoor John and the Sears Catalog," and again on 6/7/03 "Live from the Greek Theater" in Los Angeles. He has also been guest artist on National Public Radio?s Morning Edition and Weekend Edition.
