Anthony da Costa: Secret Handshake CD Release with special guest Margaret Glaspy
"Seeing Anthony da Costa on stage is a
perfect storm. Talent, intensity, humor, passion, intelligence and charm all
bouncing off the walls of the room he is playing" (Court House Concerts).
Anthony's music combines folk, rock, Americana and pop, plus what it's
like to be "a very young man with a very old soul" (legendary New
York DJ, Pete Fornatale). An MSNBC.com "Top 5 Up-&-Coming Young
Singer" and WFUV "New Artist to Watch", Anthony was the youngest
winner ever of the Falcon Ridge and Kerrville Folk Festival songwriting
competitions at the age of 16. Now 21 and a junior at Columbia
University, Anthony is celebrating the release of his 9th album, "Secret
Handshake", which features a slew of wonderful NYC musicians. He is
excited to play Joe's Pub with his full band to celebrate this release!
