Blending the modern Americana of Ryan Adams and Langhorne Slim with the time-honored, singer-and-songwriter traditions of James Taylor, Jim Croce and Bob Dylan, Joe Young’s breathy, acoustic contemplations are steeped in history. His new, self-released album, “Old Hope,” wisely doesn’t try to reinvent the wheel; it marvels at the structural integrity of it. His winning trick is that he’s able to express his existential longings without wallowing in self-pity. The Portsmouth, N.H., native brings his documentarian feel for all things folk to Glopehopper Coffeehouse and Lounge, 2100 E. Main St., on Tuesday, Aug. 20. The show begins at 6 p.m. Admission is free. globehoppercoffee.com.
