Jeffrey Foucault, Dusty Heart

When: Sun., Nov. 11, 8 p.m. 2018

Jeffrey Foucault’s new album Blood Brothers contains musical sketches of rolling landscapes and wheat-colored countrysides and the weathered people surrounded by them. His songs play out almost like short stories — about the meditative pleasure of doing the evening dishes with the kitchen window open, of hearing “Landslide” on your old truck’s tape deck and remembering a lost love, the therapeutic pull of picking up a vintage Gibson and letting all your feelings flow through it. Like John Prine or Josh Ritter, the Wisconsin-based singer-songwriter has an ear for melody as well as an understanding of human nature, making for a particularly evocative listen.
