Jon Pousette-Dart Duo
Seventies folk-rock veterans playing songs from then and now.
It’s been four and a half decades since Jon Pousette-Dart caught the attention of Boston-based music promoter Don Law while playing at the Chicken Box in Nantucket. Law convinced the native New Yorker to move to Boston, became his manager, and in short order, singer-guitarist Pousette-Dart led a duo, then a trio, then a whole band. During the 1970s, the Pousette-Dart Band released 4 albums of harmony-filled, country-tinged folk-rock, and got plenty of radio play with songs including “Amnesia,” “What Can I Say,” and “Freezing Hot.” Tonight this long-touring musician with music known by heart to a whole generation appears with his bandmate Jim Chapdelaine.
