On Tuesday December 15, BackForty Presents was thrilled to welcome local troubadour and brilliant songwriter, Tres Altman of The Paper Stars to FlapJack’s abode for a packed house. Forty people nestled into the living room with beers in hand to hear Tres and his band member, Jack Leahy, on lap steel/electric guitar.

Tres Altman and Leahy warmed up the winter night with songs from his recent album, covers by Neil Young and DevotchKa, two brand new pieces written within the week, and a holiday-themed finale of Tres’ take on “It Came Upon A Midnight Clear.” Check out the videos below and don’t forget to join our Facebook group by clicking here.
