Glenn Roth, Belle of the Fall at Best Video
Sponsored by: Best Video Film & Cultural Center
Solo guitarist Glenn Roth plays Best Video Performance Space on Friday, Mar. 24. Singer-songwriter duo Belle of the Fall opens. The show starts at 8 PM and the cover is $5.
Glenn Roth is a fingerstyle guitarist, his thumb riding the bassline and the melody driving all. His compositions suggest multiple guitars, but it’s really just one guy, ten flying fingers, one instrument. All instrumental, Roth’s songs suggest moods and narratives that compel the listener to fill in the details.
In 2014 Tracy Walton produced Julia Autumn Ford’s debut album at his studio On Deck Sound Studio. In essence the record is somewhat the birth of Belle of the Fall, as Tracy plays all of the instruments on the record and Julia sings. Later that year they would tour the East Coast together sharing bills playing separate solo sets, with Tracy sitting in on some of Julia’s songs. Sometimes an idea seems to simple so it takes a while for it to come to fruition. Simply put, two is often better than one. With Belle of the Fall it was as simple as an agreement of “All in.” The summer of 2015 was the right time for two forces to collide.
