John Reilly and Friends, featuring Becky Stark and Tom Brosseau

The John Reilly of John Reilly and Friends is best known as John C. Reilly, one of America’s most compelling character actors. With an extensive list of film and theater credits, Riley stunned audiences with his singing voice when he performed “Mr. Cellophane” in the movie Chicago in 2002. He was nominated for an Academy Award for that role, and in the same year appeared in the Oscar-nominated films Gangs of New York and The Hours. In 2007 Reilly again was singing in a movie, Walk Hard: The Dewey Cox Story, and the songs he wrote and performed were nominated for a Grammy. He then released a couple of singles produced by Jack White, one each with Tom Brosseau and Becky Stark, who now form the band John Reilly and Friends. Neo-folk singer Becky Stark is the voice and creative force behind the band Lavender Diamond, and Tom Brosseau is an American musical storyteller and guitarist. The trio’s appearance at the Newport Folk Festival was a recent triumph.

Tickets start at $50
