Skout is Laura Valk (who grew up in New Canaan) and Connor Gladney. They are a Brooklyn-based duo who play indie-folk with restless edge.
Skout’s music pairs deeply personal lyrics with urgent and emotionally charged instrumentals. They recently played the Mercury Lounge and The Warehouse, so we are thrilled to welcome them to such an intimate venue.
They will be playing in the main restaurant, so best to reserve a table for dinner before they perform at 8pm.
