Nice looking lineup for John Wesley Harding’s Cabinet of Wonders at Le Poisson Rouge tonight, sadly I don’t think I’ll be able to make it out to this one (again).
John Wesley Harding’s Cabinet of Wonders (Nov 18, 2009)
JWH and The English UK
Renowned singer-songwriter John Wesley Harding, hailed by Rolling Stone as, “a literate and ironic neo-folkie with enough bile to win over a younger, hipper audience not attuned to folk music,” recently released his latest album, Who Was Changed And Who Was Dead, via Popover Corps/Rebel Group. In support of the record Harding will be reviving his three-show residency at Le Poisson Rouge, the last one which takes place tomorrow, November 18: John Wesley Harding’s Cabinet of Wonders. Part variety show and part concert, the Cabinet of Wonders will draw together collaborators from the worlds of music, literature, comedy and even ventriloquism all hand-picked by Harding himself. “I wanted to bring together my novel writing friends (who mostly envy my musician friends) and my musician friends (who mostly envy my novel writing friends) under one flag,” says Harding. “The fact is: I like everyone who’s performing.”
