Maurice’s May 2nd special performance at Freight & Salvage will be primarily acoustic, featuring material from his six albums plus new original songs and some re-imagined classics. The set will begin with Tani and bassist Mike Anderson performing selections from their recently released (and critically acclaimed album of acoustic material, “Two Stroke”. Then , as the evening progresses, they will be joined at various points by English songstress Pam Brandon, jazz pianist Randy Craig, violinist Steve Kallai and Ken Owen on the drums.

Tani's shows at Freight & Salvage are always engaging performances featuring his smart blend of alternately dark, humorous and romantic, story-driven songwriting, his haunting, intimate vocal style and a band capable of following him down the many divergent paths he takes. The roots are in country and folk, but his taste is very broad, so expect a variety of unexpected spices and clever twists throughout.
