Woodstock's own, singer songwriter violinist Simi Stone will play the Colony on October 11. Simi's ever evolving multi-dimensional talent constantly pushes her in new directions. She received critical acclaim for her violin playing and singing from the editor of Uncut Magazine Brian Jones as "the sensational Simi Stone whose striking voice adds an even more testifying flavor to the group sound" He likened her to Bob Dylan's violinist Scarlet Rivera. Jones praised her fiddle playing as "a thing of mournful beauty." Her song "No Easy Way Out" with the Duke and the King was a hit on BBC Radio and the Band appeared on Jools Holland Late Night and other UK television shows. Simi, who toured and released records with her band Suffrajett, electrifies audiences with lonely and soulful tunes and lifts her audiences through the joy of connecting.
Doors open at 9pm. Show starts at 9:30. Tickets are $10 in advance and $15 at the door.
Cleveland Jones writes songs that portray the world through the eyes of a man finding himself through life experiences.
