Joseph Arthur Paints And Sings His Way into Fans’ Hearts

As he took the stage shortly after 10:30 p.m., Joseph Arthur searched for sharpened pencils and clean paintbrushes to begin his set.

“Where’s my broom?” he asked.

“Just use your sock!” a fan close to the stage shouted. To which Arthur replied, “I don’t want to use my sock. Come on! This is a professional show. What should we play?”

I covered Joseph Arthur’s set a few weeks ago for Hoboken Patch and was truly impressed. You can read my complete review here for more on the singer-songwriter-artist and his stripped-down set.
