Jonathan Whitton (Bistro & MAC Award Winner, HEDWIG & THE ANGRY INCH) continues his critically lauded concert residency with guitarist Aaron Jones at Don't Tell Mama. BLACK SHEEP CARNIVAL will play once a month through 2013 with initial dates scheduled for Friday, May 3 & June 7 @ 7:30PM and Monday, July 8 & August 5 @ 7:30PM. Tickets are $10 plus a two-drink minimum.
Celebrated for headlining both the Highline Ballroom & BB King Blues Club as Hedwig in HEDWIG AND THE ANGRY INCH, Jonathan Whitton follows up his award-winning 2007 NYC solo-concert debut in collaboration with indie-musician/guitarist Aaron Jones. Times Square Chronicle recently proclaimed Whitton, "a 21st Century troubadour." BLACK SHEEP CARNIVAL is a "monthly evolving freak folk alt-cabaret" drawing on song selections from his critically acclaimed, sold-out 2012 concert series, THE FREE RESIDENCY, amongst a plethora of new material which will change throughout the residency.
Musical selections for BLACK SHEEP CARNIVAL include songs from an eclectic group of contemporary musicians: Kate Bush, Michael Callen, Amy Correia, Kate McGarrigle, Patty Griffin, Sufjan Stevens, John Vanderslice, & Rufus Wainwright, amongst others.
