Wyndham Baird at Tompkins Corners
August 7, 2021 @ 6:30 pm - 8:30 pm$20
Modern-day troubadour Wyndham Baird represents the folk trajectory from Woody Guthrie to Bob Dylan with great voice, guitar, and harmonica, and with work that is seen not as an imitation, but with an authenticity that brings these songs home to us.
A regular at the Brooklyn Folk Festival and Jalopy Theatre, Wyndham is also known for his work on Lost Songs: The Basement Tapes Continued (2014), Stubborn (2015), and as Musical Director for Let’s Get Lost, a 2020 film short.
