First Friday w/ Delta Duo at The Irving Theater


This Friday is December first. Not only does it mean we’re all that much closer to Christmas, but once again, Indianapolis is celebrating the first Friday of the month with free local concerts all across town. At the Irving Theater, Delta Duo is set to play. Joining them will be Scott Chelberg, Peter Taylor, and Steve Langford.

As an added bonus to the night, there will also be free cake and coffee at the 10 Johnson Avenue Coffeehouse.

Delta Duo

It won’t be the first time Delta Duo has played a First Friday at The Irving Theater. This Mississippi-Delta-Blues band takes their strongest influences from the pre World War II era of blues. Consisting of Jeffrey John and Irina Povarova, Delta Duo follows a tradition of music set by greats like Skip James, Son House, and Willie Brown.

Peter Taylor

Peter Taylor is an acoustic folk singer and songwriter from Indianapolis who started playing in 2015. Taylor grew up on the east side of Indianapolis, and his songs are largely about strength, hope, and change. His minimalistic style evokes similar emotions as artists such as Bon Iver.

You can find out more about Peter Taylor by visiting his website. You can also find him on Bandcamp and Facebook.


As for the additional acts of Steve Langford and Scott Chelberg, the two stand apart as outliers in that neither one has any sort of web presence. Due to this, there’s very little I can tell you about either of them. Although, I think it’s safe to assume their styles will fit in nicely with both Delta Duo and Peter Taylor. You can probably expect two more solid, solo acoustic performances, although honestly, even that is up in the air. On the upside, you can think of them as two mystery acts to be discovered for the first time.


The show at the Irving Theater in Indianapolis starts at 7:00 pm this Friday, and will run until around 10:00. Once again, there will be no cover charge, and you stand to gain at least a slice of free cake and some good tunes for a few hours. Not a bad deal, if you ask me.
