Park Place arts hosts free concert

ANDERSON, Ind. — It’s inspired — live music delivered in an intimate art venue. Michael Buratto and Evan Hock come to Anderson on Saturday night, performing original work in a free concert. Soak in the sounds of the two indie performers and songwriters within the welcoming space of local art gallery, Park Place Arts. In addition to enjoying the live performances, visitors can take in the new exhibitions at the gallery.

“That’s kind of what this place is about – all kinds of different things,” said Park Place Arts owner Eliot Reed. “It should be cool.” Reed will be exhibiting a portion of his collection of concert posters, among them about a dozen Hatch show prints, to complement the music.

Michael Burrato will bring his own brand of folky, indie pop with a Midwestern flavor, performing his own songs and playing acoustic guitar.

“I’ve been writing songs several years now, and wanted to start playing,” said Buratto. He started writing during his college years at the University of Michigan, where he earned a degree in sound engineering. A lot of his songs focused on subjects like relationships, whether family or romantic.

Buratto describes “Tecumseh” as song that’s a work of historical fiction about his mom’s parents – taking real-life characters and putting them into situations that may or may not have happened. The song takes its name from the street on which his mother grew up.

“They’ve kind of turned into these nostalgia pieces,” said Buratto. Originally from Detroit, Buratto came to Anderson when his wife attended Anderson University.

“The city is a great incubator for the arts,” said Buratto. He discovered a lot of very creative people here, Eliot Reed among them. Another was Evan Hock.

“I think he’s one of the best songwriters that’s ever come out of this city,” said Buratto. Look for Hock to bring a little bit more experimental flavor to his work, also on acoustic guitar.

“He experiments with song structures, but they’re still very accessible,” said Buratto. “Still very poppy.” Buratto and Hock at one time collaborated in Indianapolis band, Win with Willard. At Saturday’s event, the two musical artists will play separate sets.
