Hailing from the San Francisco Bay area and the Blue Ridge Mountains of Virginia, respectively, singer-songwriter Melody Walker and picker-extraordinaire Jacob Groopman have fused their influences into a style they like to call “Americali.” The duo will perform at 8 p.m. Friday, April 26, at She Doesn’t Like Guthries, Middle Street, Lewiston. Drawing from genres including bluegrass, rock, jazz, classical, Afrobeat, samba and Balkan folk, yet staying close to their American folk roots, the duo create literate music that honors tradition, yet sounds completely of the moment. There is no cover. For more information, call 207-376-3344.
