Nathan Moore doubles up on the folk in Brooklyn

Brooklyn is getting two doses of folk singer Nathan Moore this month.

The Shenandoah Valley-based musician is making stops at two Gowanus venues, flying solo at one and fronting his band at another.

On August 20, he celebrates the release of his new EP, “Folk Singer,” at Littlefield (622 Degraw Street), an album that matter-of-factly states his status as a, well, folk singer.

Out two days before the show on The Royal Potato Family, the eight-song collection was written and recorded by Moore at his home in the Shenandoah Valley and features the musician unaccompanied on vocals, acoustic guitar and harmonica as he sings songs about everyday people, himself included, trying to find their way in the world.

The show is at 9 p.m. with tickets $10. Joining him will be Kamara Thomas of Earl Greyhound and special guests. For more information, call 718-855-3388.

A week later, he can be found at The Bell House, fronting his band Surprise Me Mr. Davis, as they headline the venue, located at 148 7th Street.

The electro-folk band is comprised of Moore, previously of ThaMuseMeant, as well as members of the avant-rock band The Slip.

Catch them August 26 at 8 p.m. Tickets are $12 in advance, $14 the day of the show. With The Low Anthem. For more information, call 718-643-6510.

Correction: The band Nathan Moore is fronting at the Bell House is SURPRISING ME MR. DAVIS, not Surprise Me Mr. David. Moore is a brilliant songwriter - make sure to listen to his lyrics.

I know there's been talk about a name change, but did Surprise Me Mr Davis add an -ing? Not according to any of their materials....
