David Manchester will be opening tonights folk infusion at Club Cafe with The Early Mays. Manchester leads the band Arlo Aldo and might be one of the most underrated singer/songwriters Pittsburgh has to offer. With Arlo Aldo, he released the album “Zelie,” in 2013. The quartet recently released the three song EP, “Spin the Twine,” and are currently working on another album due later this year. Tonight is also the release party for Arlo Aldo’s limited edition 7-inch record of “Spin the Twine,” their first release after signing with Future Oak Records. Manchester will be accompanied by fiddle player Jessica Hoffman of Jeremy Caywood and the Way of Life.
Don’t go home after David Manchester though, Judith Avers, Ellen Gozion and Emily Pinkerton of the Early Mays have some beautiful harmonies too. These appalachian style folksters will leave you in awe at their precision on the fiddle, organ and banjo. In 2014 the trio was named top local act by 91.3 WYEP. Doors for the show is 6pm with music starting at 7. The 21 and over show is only $12. Tickets can be purchased at the door or through Ticketweb.
