Hudson Valley singer/ songwriter Jude Roberts performs an evening of original songs, strongly rooted in American, Irish and English traditional music, at the Rosendale Cafe.
A longtime Hudson Valley resident, Roberts writes artfully crafted originals - emphasizing melody, dynamic chord changes, and insightful lyrics- which are brought to life by a strong, pure voice and excellent guitar technique.
Jude Roberts weaves a graceful aesthetic into original folk music, while staying true to its tradition. Currently making his home in Accord NY, he tours and performs frequently on both the East and the West Coast. Jude has performed with/opened for quite a few noteworthy musicians, but doesn't like to brag about it unless he's encouraged to. He just keeps on writing, playing and performing. It's what he does.
Artfully crafted originals - emphasizing melody, dynamic chord changes, and insightful lyrics- are brought to life by a strong, pure voice and excellent guitar technique. His first CD is entitled Stained Glass Afterglow. Currently only half of Rosendale and .0001 percent of the rest of the world population own it, leaving a lot of work to be done. His second release, as yet to be titled, is due out in mid-2014.
