Patrick Watson and Loney Dear at South Street Seaport - 7/6/12
It was hot and sticky at the Seaport on Friday evening (7/6) but, apart from minor insect invasion, it was a lovely evening of gently swooning music with Canadian Patrick Watson and Sweden's Loney Dear. It was a large crowd out for the show too, who sat attentively during Loney Dear's set but rose to their feet for Watson whose music straddles the line between cabaret and anthemic folk (complete with a musical saw at one point). Loney Dear's Emil Svanängen joined Watson at the piano for a song, as well. Nice night.
Below are more pictures from Loney Dear and Patrick Watson's set at the Seaport Music Festival as part of the River to River festival. Friday night at the Seaport, it's a pre-4Knots Fest show with Eleanor Friedberger and Ex-Cops.
