We'll be doing some songs at the tail end - around 3:30! The Black Souls are the newest project of well known Boston frontman Cam Ackland of the Prime Movers, Voodoo Dolls and Port Charles Quintet. Playing a mix of classic r&b, garage and soul, Cam and his wife Kim Ackland trade off on vocals interspersed with wailing harp. Rounding out the group: the twin guitar stylings of Tony Kaczynski and George Perkins, the pounding bass of Stow Kelner, and the primal drumbeats of Matt Burns.
