Americana Noir: Maurice Tani
a live stream concert from Bird & Beckett
Songwriter Maurice Tani with his duo partner, the American bassist Mike Anderson, return to the Bird & Beckett stage for a program of his classic songs and some new ones.
Maurice has been called a “cartographer of the human heart” (Scott Bloom, in The Bay Twang), and we think that sums it up pretty well.
His record company, Little Village Foundation, spells it out: “Known for his wry/rye-to-romantic songwriting, agile guitar style and expressive singing, Tani’s particular flavor of Americana is a broad spectrum tincture of influences to cure what ails you. While rooted (at times distantly) in country music, his writing is centered on an urban-western perspective. Short musical narratives of life on the left coast. A sort of cinema for the blind.”
Our live streams are now accessed
on both YouTube and Facebook.
Suggested cover charge:
$20 / sliding scale – $2 to $200

Our events are put on under the umbrella of the nonprofit Bird & Beckett Cultural Legacy Project (the "BBCLP"). That's how we fund our ambitious schedule of 300 or so concerts and literary events every year.
The BBCLP is a 501(c)(3) non-profit...
