Gawain and the Green Knight
Acoustic Interlude
Sundays Noon - 4:00 p.m.

August 1, 2021
Alexia Antoniou and Mike O'Malley founded Gawain and the Green Knight shortly after they met in 2017. She had invited him to discuss music over whiskey on what ended up becoming, to their surprise, their first date. Up until then, he'd been playing the Irish bouzouki at nightly gigs on NYC's Irish music circuit, while she'd been stockpiling songs that, as described by The All-Scene Eye, "used characters from history and literature, French monarchs, Italian ascetics, and Trojan warriors, to act out timeless joys, regrets, and longings." We'll hear music from their studio recording, A Sleeping Place (2021, Gawain and The Green Knight, LLC.)
