Dec. 8—This Friday night, the folks at Friday Night Folk present some other folks playing folk.
Above is what we in the Journalism Industry refer to as "not a crisp, clear lede.*
Yes, it's murky and stupid, but it also makes me laugh, so that's important in these cruel times.
What I mean to convey — after three consecutive one-sentence paragraphs — is that New London's Friday Night Folk music series continues this week with a special show by Nancy and Ben Parent of The Rivergods onstage with Steve Elci of Steve Elci & Friends. As always, the show takes place in New London at the All Souls UU.
The trio will feature a bunch of new songs composed separately and together during the pandemic, and audience members will hear them in all their three-part-harmony'd glory. Also, expect a few tunes from the back catalogs of all concerned. Oh, and masks and proof of vaccination or a negative Covid test within 72 hours are required.
*The "lede" is the journo-phrase for the first sentence of a news story, and it's spelled "lede" instead of "lead" because I said so.
