Here are musician Ken Beasley’s top music picks on the Lower East Side for this weekend:
SPOOKY GHOST – Fri, June 17 | 9PM at Rockwood Music Hall
Despite its haunted house connotation, Spooky Ghost is merely the moniker under which Irish guitarist/composer Gerry Leonards produces his solo work. The nickname was bestowed upon him by fellow musician and partner Donal Coghlan because of his ethereal guitar style. That style comes from years of studying the guitar and all its dense tonal, harmonic, and resonant elements. Incredibly active in his collaborations as much as his solo work, Leonard is looking forward to upcoming projects with Duncan Sheik, Jonatha Brooke, Sophie B Hawkins, and Pamela Sue Mann.
