Somerville Songwriter Sessions at the Armory Cafe presents contemporary folk singer/songwriters in concert on the first Saturday of each month. The Armory Cafe features live music in an intimate setting, a menu featuring sandwiches, soups, desserts and coffees, and plenty of free parking.
Sam Cook-Stuntz is a singer-songwriter out of Cambridge, Massachusetts. In addition to various collaborations and recording projects, he self-released his solo EP, “Missteps”, in 2013, and has performed at such local venues as Club Passim, the Cantab Lounge and Starbucks. His brand of contemporary folk music is marked by earnest reflection and a healthy affinity for puns. When he’s not writing and performing, Sam works as a Legal Administrative Assistant at Chin & Curtis, a Boston-based immigration law firm. http://www.samcookstuntz.bandcamp.com
Jonathan and Cara Pardo of Opal Puckett will also be performing. Opal Puckett is an indie folk band made up of Jonathan and his wife Cara, as well as Steve Pardo and his wife Amy. Considering the closeness that is offered when a band consists of two brothers and their wives, it’s not surprising that this four-piece focuses on lush, tight-knit harmonies to drive their songs. Matched with soaring woodwinds, accordion, and electric guitar, their unique sound offers intricate arrangements while remaining completely accessible. They released their debut, self-titled E.P. in January, 2014. http://www.opalpuckett.com
