Klyma concert Feb. 11 in NY Mills
Singer/songwriter Greg Klyma will perform a concert Thursday, Feb. 11, at the New York Mills Regional Cultural Center, starting at 7:30 p.m.
Admission is $12 advance sale and $15 the night of the concert. Greg sings story songs that evoke a flavor of Mark Twain, Woody Guthrie, and David Sedaris.
Born in Buffalo on his father's bowling night, songwriter, musician, and entertainer Greg Klyma grew up in a blue-collar town with a blue-collar work ethic and an appreciation of blue-collar fun.
Greg plays guitar, mandolin, voice, harmonica, and piano. His CDs include New Clothes (2000), In the Meantime (2001), Not a Complicated Guy (2003), Driver (2006), and Rust Belt Vagabond (2008). He released a Live Album in late 2009. Greg has opened for Todd Snider, Ramblin' Jack Elliott, Fred Eaglesmith, and Jimmy LaFave, among others. He has shared the stage with Jonathan Byrd, Anais Mitchell, Tom Bianchi, Danielle Miraglia, Anthony da Costa and other friends.
The Mountain Xpress in Asheville, C writes that Greg is a "singer/songwriter with (an) Arlo Guthrie-esque voice (who) writes socially conscious ballads and acoustic-guitar ditties thick with hippie happiness that assume audiences are both smart and able to laugh."
