Mountain Man is sailing its “Magic Ship” all the way to the East End on Sunday, June 2, where the folk trio will continue its longest-running U.S. tour at the Westhampton Beach Performing Arts Center.
“The tour celebrates the band’s long-awaited second album, ‘Magic Ship,’ which Nonesuch released last fall to critical acclaim,” according to a press release. “The New York Times said the album’s ‘intimate, close-harmony songs … tap into an ageless essence of traditional ballads and lullabies as they contemplate companionship, family, love and death.’ NPR called the record ‘a timeless space where three voices are all you need to be transported someplace wonderful, and the New Yorker included it in its Ten Best Albums of 2018.”
Magic Ship includes 11 original songs written by the trio — Amelia Meath, Alexandra Sauser-Monnig and Molly Sarlé — as well as interpretations of Ted Lucas’ “Baby Where You Are,” Michael Hurley’s “Blue Mountain,” and the traditional hymn, “Bright Morning Stars.”
The concert begins at 8 p.m., and tickets are $48 or $58. For more information, call (631) 288-1500 or visit whbpac.org.
