AMERICANA | Michael Corwin 

Michael Corwin adds a lot of welcome grit to his music. The singer-songwriter sits squarely in the country-folk wheelhouse — though he occasionally ventures outside, like the rockabilly boogie "Error of my Ways" — but there's a lot of unique edge and darkness to his music. It's a reminder of the grizzled old folk singers that would routinely sing about murder, revenge, prison, and soul-crushing heartache — you know ... life. Corwin is a talented story-teller, using a voice that seems made specifically for dark folk, and an equally gifted guitar player. His debut full-length, "Last Cigarette Promises," was released last November, and should be heard by folk lovers wondering where the "oomph" went.

Michael Corwin performs Wednesday, August 27, at Sticky Lips Juke Joint, 830 Jefferson Road, Henrietta. 6:30 p.m. Free.;
