Joe Fletcher
Saturday, October 6th, 8:00pm

We believe honesty is the best policy, so we’re going to tell you the straight up truth: Joe Fletcher plays honky tonk. Not throwback, nostalgic honky tonk but honky tonk that feels totally at home today. He has a great voice with the grit and gravel of Johnny Cash and the bluesy elasticity of Hank Williams. Yeah, he’s that good. No Depression says, “No old fashioned posing here. Just rock n' roll with a tip of the hat to tradition. Fletcher continues to showcase a style that has become all his own: story driven songs that never shy away from a little grit.”

Joe Fletcher comes to us highly recommended by Brown Bird (who tore down the house in June). He is part of a growing scene in Providence, RI and all signs are that he’s the breakout artist of this year’s Newport Folk Fest. This fall he is releasing an EP of songs with just him and his guitar and he’ll be playing Mechanic Street the same way.
Please join us for his Cleveland debut!
Here's a great tune.
