New York Connection

Thursday, Dec. 27, Lock Stock & Barrel


For the last 20 years, the New York Connection series has brought high-profile session artists to Boise, and next week, it will bring Mike Merritt, James Wormworth and Hugh Pool to Lock Stock & Barrel. Merritt, whose interests primarily include blues and roots, just finished a 25-year stint playing with talk show host Conan O'Brien's house band; Wormworth, also an O'Brien veteran, is a drummer who has recorded with the likes of Stevie Ray Vaughan and played with Cyndi Lauper, Jerry Lee Lewis and Buddy Guy; and Pool plays the guitar and harmonica, and sings. He has been called out of the audience to perform with legends like Leon Russell and John Campbell. This show is a rare chance to get up close to a trio of some of the finest musicians working today.
