MERLIN SNIDER & Pretty Good Acquaintances
Acoustic guitarist Merlin Snider is a magician with words & melody, in songs that live between a smile and a tear. “He’s got such a storytelling way, drawing you into the songs,” said Frank Hennessey, host of Celtic Heartbeat, BBC Wales. “One Light Many Windows” is the No. 2 Album on the April 2017 FOLKDJ-L chart of Top 70 albums. Performing at Topanga Days with Pretty Good Acquaintances Deborah Snider on vocals and percussion, Mark Indictor on fiddle, and Larry Zack on drums, the band melds a tasteful groove of Americana roots music with notes of swing, alt country, and blues.
