BARNEVELD — Unity Hall will present singer/songwriter Dusty Pascal at 8 p.m. Saturday, Nov. 7 in a free virtual concert.
Pas’cal, who hails from Skaneateles, said he’s as an old soul who expresses himself like a modern version of acoustic icon John Prine. The free concert will premiere at www.unityhall.com and will be viewable for two weeks following the performance.
Pas’cal’s original tunes are frequently played — and he’s one of the only local artists having this distinction — on Mimi Griswold’s WOUR program, The Blue Moon Café.
Dave Frisina of 105.9 Radio in Syracuse described Pas’cal’s music as “authentic, thoughtful and heart-written songs with warmly dynamic production that compliments Dusty’s genuine delivery through every engaging performance.”
“Early on I was influenced by guys like Kris Kristofferson, Bob Dylan and Jim Croce because that’s who my dad listened to,” said Pas’cal. “But actually I was most influenced by my dad who’s a songwriter himself.”
Unity Hall’s Virtual Concerts are free and each musician is compensated for their performance with support from a grant provided by CNY Arts.
Unity Hall encourages online audience members to make donations through their “virtual tip jar” where proceeds go to each week’s performer.
This event is sponsored by the Unity Hall Foundation, a not-for-profit organization founded in 1995 to maintain the 1896 hall as a center for the arts and community activities.
