Guitarist and vocalist Mike Sopko teams up with Bay Area drummer Ryan Scott Long to play original rock, folk and blues with jazz improvisation. The newly formed Mike Sopko Duo will perform at 9 p.m. Thursday, Nov. 8, at Caldera Tap House, 31 Water St., Ashland. The cover charge is $5.
The duo is a smaller configuration of Sopko’s Glimpse Trio with drummer Hamir Atwal and bassist Chris Lopes. As the Glimpse Trio, Sopko released two albums, “1985,” which was awarded Editors’ Pick in DownBeat Magazine, and “Garage.” The trio’s third recording, mixed by producer Oz Fritz and mastered by Doug Sax, is set for release in 2013.
