It was the night before the election. You remember the presidential election, don’t you?
So beneath an exhibition of American flags (artist Mel Ziegler’s “Flag Exchange” project) Skidmore College’s Tang Museum hosted an evening of experimental acoustic music. Featuring five performers and stretching on for nearly three hours, the festivities bore the prescient title, “Folk’d Up Country.”
Led by vocalist-keyboardist Annie Lewandowski, the noise-folk trio Powerdove headlined the procedings, which also included Brooklyn singer-songwriter Ben Seretan, Greater Nippertown favorite Matthew Carefully (with cohorts Katie Hammon and Ian White) and members of the Skidmore community, both faculty (Adam Tinkle) and students (the five-piece band Test).
