Band: Phil & Foster with special guest Ryan Balthrop
Date: Wednesday, Nov. 10 at 7 p.m.
Venue: Callaghan’s Irish Social Club, 916 Charleston St., callaghansirishsocialclub.com
For years, Phil & Foster have celebrated a Wednesday night residence at Callaghan’s Irish Social Club. This duo of seasoned local musicians provides locals with an acoustic embrace of folk, rock and country to get them through the madness of the workweek. In addition to obscure and familiar tunes, Phil & Foster have also penned a number of original tunes. This week, the Callaghan’s crowd will get to sample their latest single, “Blue Ribbon Love.” This track welcomes listeners with a round of pristine harmonies that resonate throughout. Afterward, Phil Proctor weaves tenor-laden lyrics between bluegrass measures infused with bright acoustic and warm bass.
Phil & Foster welcoming a guest to their Wednesday night show is not uncommon. However, the duo has tapped a beloved local singer-songwriter to join them on stage this time. Fresh from a run of shows with Slide Bayou, Ryan Balthrop will be returning to Mobile to collaborate with Phil & Foster at Callaghan’s. Balthrop has gathered a dedicated following by using an eclectic mix of rock and jam mixed with a regional country sound soaked in the salty waters of the Gulf of Mexico. With decades of experience in the Southeast’s music scene, Balthrop has mastered his art in the studio and the live environment. In addition to his extensive catalog of originals, the Callaghan’s crowd will be thrilled by Balthrop’s collaborative efforts on guitar.
