Greg Castro and The Electric Chords
Continue Museum’s Popular Music Series
Hurleyville, NY – The Sullivan County Historical Society proudly presents Greg Castro, guitarist, singer, songwriter and producer, on Sunday, June 2 at 2 p.m.
Part of the First Sunday Music and History Program at the Sullivan County Museum in Hurleyville, this outing will feature Greg and his band The Electric Chords. Greg is a 27-year-old Liberty native who has been performing in the region for over a decade. His most recent band, The Electric Chords, is about to release their debut CD.
Carol Smith, who along with her husband Aldo Troiani produces the Music and History series, had this to say about the record: “Brilliant songwriting; warm, soulful vocals; and danceable rhythm…the CD has been on repeat in my car ever since Greg shared it with me. And he happens to be one of the finest guitar players we have ever heard – truly a generational type of talent.”
The Electric Chords is a trio that includes Simon Efrein and Nick Sherman. Simon lives in Loch Sheldrake and is also a volunteer DJ at WJFF Radio. Nick plays bass, and together this power trio delivers a groovy twist on rock and roll, mixed with heavy blues and jazz influences. The band’s website is www.theelectricchords.com.
Greg is an RRFC graduate (Recording Radio Film Connection), and he provides audio services for venues like the Tusten Theatre, WJFF, and the Hurleyville Arts Centre. He also works as a sound engineer at Sullivan County’s newest recording studio, The Outlier Inn.
Little Sparrow, Carol and Aldo’s band, will host the Sunday afternoon gathering at the Sullivan County Museum, located at 265 Main Street in Hurleyville.
The program is made possible with funds from the Decentralization Program of the New York State Council on the Arts with the support of Governor Andrew Cuomo and the New York State Legislature and administered by the Delaware Valley Arts Alliance.
The event is free, but donations will be gratefully accepted. Call 845-434-8044 for more info, or visit the Sullivan County Historical Society’s website at www.scnyhistory.com
