Midnight North wrapped up their East Coast run around their 2021 album There’s Always A Story with a pair of shows in Connecticut and New York City this past weekend. The band welcomed harpist Mikaela Davis both nights as well as frequent collaborator and multi-instrumentalist Jason Crosby in New York.

Midnight North — guitarists Grahame Lesh and Elliott Peck, bassist Connor O’Sullivan, drummer Nathan Graham and keyboardist TJ Kanczuzewski — kicked off their March 5 show at StageOne at Fairfield Theatre Company in Fairfield, Connecticut with a pair of songs, “We’re Not Alone” and “Good Days,” from There’s Always A Story. About two thirds of the way through the set, Davis joined the band on harp for another TAAS cut, “Coyote,” and stuck around for “Greene County” off Midnight North’s 2017 album, Under The Lights.

Midnight North’s set in Connecticut also included Elliott’s “Good For You I Guess” as well as covers of The Beatles’ “Don’t Let Me Down,” Grateful Dead’s “Scarlet Begonias,” Isley Brothers “Work To Do” and Tedeschi Trucks Band’s “Midnight In Harlem,” the latter kicking off the encore. The band brought the Fairfield show to a close with There’s Always A Story’s “The Sailor & The Sea.”

For their concert at The Loft at City Winery in New York City on March 6, Midnight North shifted “Good Days” to the opening position and added There’s Always A Story’s “Silent Lonely Drifter” in the second slot. The set also saw another TTB cover, this time around Midnight North offered their take on “Do I Look Worried” after which Mikaela once again joined the band for “Coyote” and “Greene County.” Jason Crosby would help Midnight North close out the set with TAAS track “Earthquakes,” a cover of Funkadelic’s “Can You Get To That” and “The Saillor & The Sea” to cap off the set. Midnight North returned to bookend the Connecticut and New York shows with “We’re Not Alone” for the encore.
