Nelson Odeon to host double bill

Singer-songwriter Jeffrey Foucault and steamboat soul band Roosevelt Dime will be performing at The Nelson Odeon in Nelson on Dec. 7.

Jeffrey Foucault released his debut album, “Miles from Lightning,” in 2001. According to a media release, Foucault grew up in Wisconsin and has spent the last decade exploring the darker sides of blues and country. 

 “Jeffrey Foucault is a young man with an old soul...contemporary and timeless,” says The New York Times.

Roosevelt Dime is a Brooklyn based band whose music combines folk, blues and soul. According to a release, their lineup of instruments includes banjo, gut-bucket bass, electric bass, saxophone, clarinet, electric guitar and percussion, and their sound has been described as steamboat soul, the title of their new album.

The New York Times has referred to Roosevelt Dime as, “ a perpetual crowd-pleaser,” and they have been featured at Philadelphia Folk Fest, No Depression and Musikfest.

Both acts will be performing at The Nelson Odeon this Saturday. The show starts at 8 p.m. and tickets are $20 in advance and $22 at the door.

The Nelson Odeon is a performance space located in the historic Nelson Grange building. For more information call 315-655-9193 or visit www.nelsonodeon.com.
