PHOTOS: Andrew Mark Schaffer and Copper Fields at The Originals Music Series
The guitars were on full display once again at The Originals Music Series this week, with singer-songwriter Andrew Mark Schaffer opening for soul/folk trio Copper Fields.
Schaffer’s intricate guitar work — enhanced by a loop station that allowed him to nail impressive solos over rhythm parts — combined with his improvisational ability on yet-to-be-completed song ideas to captivate those in attendance at Chicago Restaurant’s Club Gravity.
Copper Fields then took the stage, with the Emmaus trio blending crisp vocal harmonies over styles from acoustic rock to bluegrass. The group showed why they are one of the most exciting up-and-coming acts in the Valley right now, as their distinct mellow sound and catchy hooks cause first-time listeners to take immediate notice.
