Sons of Pitches

$10 Adv / $12 At the Door

An evening with Sons of Pitches.
To listen to samples, visit www.sonsofpitchesband.com

Always challenging their collective internal status quo with fresh ideas and new perspectives, Sons of Pitches bring their own brand of improvisation to the stage for a thrilling live event. Their instrumental country jazz originals, and unique arrangements of standards affectionately called “Cowboy Jazz,” provide a musical landscape for staking their claim and pushing on to new frontiers. They swing, they rip, they dip, they dive, they fly…they melt hearts & faces.

It was backstage after New Year’s Eve 2015 performances at the legendary Birchmere Music Hall in Alexandria, VA when (The Hello Strangers) band-mates, guitarist/songwriter Spencer Pheil and bassist Tommy Hoy, met Dave Hadley, pedal steel extraordinaire (The Seldom Scene). That night, with a mutual yearning for a musical milieu where the sky was the limit and the emphasis was improvisation, the idea took shape to make a bold statement musically. Drummer Jim Aguzzi, who had performed in many ensembles with Pheil & Hoy, was the last piece of the puzzle, bringing a wealth of musical taste, chops, and clever puns.

Sons of Pitches hail from the Mason Dixon line on the Pennsylvania/Maryland border where Pheil owns a recording studio. The band is slated to release its first self-titled album in November 2016. Collectively, Sons of Pitches has thousands of shows under its belt. Although still in its nascent stages, the band has already received high praise for its live shows, varied set lists, and inspiring musicianship. Their goal is to create music for ordinary folks. Their brand of improvisation is meant to be visceral and tactile: music for the people. Sons of Pitches will be touring and recording extensively in 2017 and look forward to continuing their quest to unearth new musical ideas.

Hot Club Philly

$20 Cover

An evening with Hot Club Philly.
To listen to samples, visit www.hotclubphilly.com

The Hot Club of Philadelphia was started in 2001 by guitarist Barry Wahrhaftig.

They are an acoustic ensemble, dedicated to playing ‘Gypsy Jazz.’ That’s the term used to describe the music pioneered by the legendary original ‘Hot Club of France Quintet,’ which was led by guitarist Django Reinhardt and Violinist Stephane Grappelli.

Django and Grappelli were attempting to do their own version of American ‘Hot Jazz,’ as played by artists like Louis Armstrong and Duke Ellington. They used acoustic guitars, bass and violin, rather than horns and drums. Grappelli and Django added some French and Gypsy flavor and created a blend of music that is quite popular and accessible.

Nathan Bell and Rivers

$12 Adv / $15 At the Door$12 Adv / $15 At the Door

An evening with Nathan Bell and Rivers.
A special double feature.

Folk/Roots artist Nathan Bell is known for his straightforward yet poetic lyrics, supported by master guitar playing. Acoustic Guitar Magazine compared his style to the “gruff troubadour lilt of Kris Kristofferson.” Sing Out! Magazine called his music “Powerful stuff…bleak, yet oddly comforting.” Bell’s records have been played on nationally syndicated stations such as NPR’s ‘Midnight Special’ and have topped folk/roots charts in the US and in Europe. To listen to samples, visit www.nathanbellmusic.com

Rivers is a smattering of genre-bending sounds—tapping into folk rock, pop, funk, blues, chamber pop, Americana, roots rock and alternative—that make up a fluid and dynamic indie folk style. But, when you think you can put a finger on their overall sound, Rivers keeps you guessing. That’s the beauty of their music. After just two short years of playing together, Joe Schaefer, 25, Matt Sinkovitz, 31, and Vincent Yarnell, 25, are eagerly working to get their distinctive folk amalgamation into the eardrums of as many people as possible.

Dala with Lawrence Trailer

$20 Adv / $25 At the Door

An evening with Dala.
To listen to samples, visit www.dalagirls.com

Juno nominees and winners of the 2010 Canadian Folk Music Award for Vocal Group of the Year, Amanda Walther and Sheila Carabine of Dala write and sing in harmony best described as angelic. These two best friends met in their high school music class in 2002; they have since released five albums and toured extensively across North America. Darlings of the Canadian music scene, Dala are now poised to bring their fresh brand of acoustic pop music to the world.

Drawing upon influences like The Beatles, Joni Mitchell, Neil Young and Bob Dylan, Dala write songs that are both catchy and insightful. Amanda’s ethereal soprano voice blends seamlessly with Sheila’s velvety alto, creating the lush harmonies that have become their trademark.

In the summer of 2010, Dala’s PBS special “Girls From The North Country” was broadcast across North America. This concert features Dala’s own songs weaved around classics by Joni Mitchell, Neil Young, Bob Dylan and Gordon Lightfoot. The live cd and dvd for “Girls From The North Country” earned Dala the 2010 Canadian Folk Music Award for “Vocal Group of the Year”. The live album was nominated for a 2011 Juno Award in the category “Roots and Traditional Album of the Year: Group”.

Dala’s latest album “Best Day” was released in June of 2012. It was nominated for three Canadian Folk Music Awards: English Songwriter of the Year, Vocal Group of the Year and Producer of the Year.

Marc Berger with Alex DiMattia

$10 Cover

An evening with Marc Berger.
To listen to samples, visit www.marcbergermusic.com

Marc’s life has been about pursuing twin passions: creating and recording his American roots songs, and exploring remote areas of the desert and mountain West. After signing his first publishing contract while in law school, he fronted rock bands and performed regularly in New York City clubs like CBGB, Wetlands, and The Knitting Factory. All through this period, he’d find ways to get into the West, picking up details from fellow wilderness junkies about off the beaten path locales and filing them away for future reference.

On one of these trips, he became intrigued by the cover of THE BIG IT, a book of short stories by A.B. Guthrie he found on a revolving paperback rack in a Navajo reservation trading post. It got him thinking about using his travels to create a set of songs in the cultural tradition of writers like Guthrie and visual artists like John Ford and Frederick Remington. Marc and Co-Producer Mike Ricciardi now present RIDE, ten cinematic recordings reflecting his romantic connection to the American West and exploring the value of its myths to contemporary culture.

Jenny and Tyler with Annie Lawrence

$12 Adv / $15 At the Door

An evening with Jenny and Tyler.
To listen to samples, visit www.jennyandtyler.com

Acoustic guitar, mandolin and the kick-drum of an old suitcase drive catchy melodies and thoughtful lyrics as Jenny & Tyler chronicle lives marked daily by love, joy, loss, doubt and redemption. Their blend of driving, percussive folk-pop rings of Mumford & Sons and Nickel Creek, and at times echoes popular male-female duos such as She & Him and fellow Nashville darlings The Civil Wars.

Their first major release, Faint Not (2010), found a captive audience in the likes of students and justice-seekers worldwide. The record’s title track is an anthemic tune, bolstered by words from the famous prayer of St. Francis, “Where there is hatred let me sow love, where there is injury let me pardon…”

Jenny & Tyler don’t merely want to tell a good story, they want to live one. Instead of glossing over personal and global problems, they wrestle with issues like poverty, injustice, and apathy, starting with their own hearts. They are committed to compassion, charity and justice, evidenced, in part, through their ongoing support of International Justice Mission, a non-profit organization dedicated to ending human-trafficking throughout the world.

In November of 2013 Jenny & Tyler released For Freedom: A Covers EP. The EP is full of the duo’s favorite songs, ranging from tunes by U2 to Smashing Pumpkins to Simon & Garfunkel. The EP benefits organizations that fight human-trafficking. The For Freedom tour begins in February with fellow artists Levi Weaver and Vanita Joines.

Paul McCartney Tribute

$12 Adv / $15 At the Door

An evening with Charlie Phillips performing a Tribute to Paul McCartney. To listen to samples, visit www.charliephillips.com

Local singer/songwriter, Charlie Phillips, will perform a tribute to John Lennon. The Mozart of our generation? Well, certainly one of the greatest composers of the rock era. Local musicians Charlie Phillips and John Hagel will play songs covering Paul McCartney’s vast recording career. Bring your requests!

Raised amidst the musical melting pot that was 1970’s Philadelphia, listeners agree that Charlie Phillips’ songs cannot be categorized into genre. His musical influences – rooted primarily in rock, soul, folk, and blues – have been blended and distilled to create his eclectic style and fresh sound. From the blues-rock and reggae flavored “Preacherman” and “Give It Up”, to the Asbury Park blare of “Natural”, to the campfire folksiness of “Donny T” and “Wealth of Friends”, his heartfelt and melody-driven songs leave the listener singing after the song is over.

Charlie’s charisma and spontaneity are evident in his live shows, alluring audiences by dipping deep into his reservoir of original music and cover tunes. Also a yoga teacher at his own yoga studio in suburban Philadelphia, Charlie adds the compelling ingredient of his positive and hopeful “spiritual realism” into his recordings (evident in songs such as “Little Things” and “What It Is”) as well as his live performances.

Ben Arnold with
Andy Stack and Adrien Reju Duo

$18 Adv / $20 At the Door

An evening with Ben Arnold.
To listen to samples, visit www.benarnold.com

Ben Arnold has toured throughout the United States and Europe with various line-ups both solo and with his rollicking live band. He has shared a stage with everyone from Ryan Adams, David Gray, Ben Folds and Lucinda Williams to Ron Sexsmith, Randy Newman, Martin Sexton, David Johanson, Jackson Browne, Amos Lee and even a strangely mysterious week in Holland with Townes Van Zandt in the last year of his life. His lyrics remind you of John Hiatt and he's been told he sings a bit like Randy Newman, but writes hooks like Springsteen used to do in the '80s. His songs explore strong emotions while his music draws on rock, folk, R&B and all genres in between. Ben is also a member of US Rails, which tours regularly in Europe and has released 5 of their own records to date.

After releasing an independent cd in the early 90's Ben was quickly signed to Ruffhouse/Columbia Records where he released "Almost Speechless" a slacker songwriter disc which opened him up to wider international audiences. He has since released several independent records as well as "Calico" on The String Cheese Incidents' label, SciFidelity Records, Nevermind My Blues on Ropeadope and "Simplify" on Blue Rose.

His latest solo release "Lost Keys" is already drawing very positive reviews nationally and is in rotation quite regularly on Philadelphia's WXPN Radio. Featuring the songs "Stupid Love", "Nobody Hurtin' Like Me" and "When Love Fades Away", It is a collection of material drawn from the music of Motown, Stax, The Sound of Philadelphia and street corner Doo-Wop. WXPN Radio says "Lost Keys" is "A sleek and soulful work from a refined tunesmith. The brass arrangements paired with his husky baritone recall The Afghan Whigs’ New Orleans-rooted LP 1965; his self-described “sad guy drinking alone at the bar” ballads .(“Nobody Hurtin’ Like Me”) have a bit of Closing Time-era Tom Waits in them; and his pop nuggets are impossibly poppy, like the Randy Newman-esque bounce of “Stupid Love” that, I guarantee you, will be stuck in your head in the best possible way!"

Tony Furtado

$15 Cover

An evening with Tony Furtado.
To listen to samples, visit www.tonyfurtado.com

Very few musicians of any stripe so personify a musical genre as completely as Tony Furtado embodies Americana roots music. Tony is an evocative and soulful singer, a wide-ranging songwriter and a virtuoso multi-instrumentalist adept on banjo, cello-banjo, slide guitar, and baritone ukulele who mixes and matches sounds and styles with the flair of a master chef (he’s also an accomplished sculptor, but that’s another story). All the music of America is in Tony’s music. Relix hit the nail on the head when writing of Tony Furtado: “True talent doesn’t need categories.”

The Bell, Tony’s brand new album, is a special CD for a number of reasons. After 25 years of recording for such record companies as Rounder, Dualtone, What Are Records and Funzalo, Tony is finally completely independent, with his own label, YousayFurtado Records, and only one set of ears to answer to: his own. This is the first album in a long time on which Tony had complete artistic control. It’s his music, done his way. Tony proudly describes The Bell as “the most personal album of my career,” and that begins with the songs. A songwriter of increasing breadth and sophistication, Tony addresses the weighty themes of life and death here with a hard-won sense of peace and acceptance. Several of the songs on The Bell (including “Tired Lion” and “Ashes of Man”) deal in one way or another with the death of Tony’s father, to whom the album is dedicated. Balancing those songs are compositions celebrating the birth of his son (“Star”) and his own creative re-birth (“Broken Bell,” “Low Road” and “Give Me Your Soul”) that accompanied his recent regaining of control of his music and career with a move to a new record label and management team.

The Bell is also special to Tony as it represents a return to his banjo-playing roots, with the banjo and cello-banjo far more prominent than in recent years. Long-time fans will certainly applaud this back-to-the-future move—and groove to the swampy vibe of the instrumentals “Astoria” and “Jo Jo.” Tony says that playing more banjo “feels like home,” and that he especially likes the “moody and menacing” feel of the lower- voiced cello-banjo, a relatively new instrument for him.

Having taken time to refocus after the 2014 release of singer/ songwriter, Matt Duke returns with the release of The Phoenix, a conceptual album about clinical depression, the desire to come out from under, and the ebb and flow of one's emotional state of being.

Realized through the help of producer and engineer Andrew Lipke (Hezekiah Jones, Chris Kasper), Duke returned to the studio with longtime friends and fellow musicians Dane Kline, Nathan Barnett, Andrea Weber, and others, to create an album that is both insightful thematically, while also eclectic in its artistry.

Their debut self-titled album reached #3 on the Billboard Bluegrass Charts based on the strength of their lead single "That Home Far Away" and subsequent national TV appearances.

Found Wandering is currently working on their follow-up which finds them branching off into soul, blues and psychedelia, and they are excited to debut selections from the new album at Burlap and Bean, one of their favorite venues.

An evening with Chris Trapper.
To listen to samples, visit www.christrapper.com

CHRIS TRAPPER began his career as the front man for late–90’s alternative rock band THE PUSH STARS (Capitol Records). With four CD releases and several high profile national tours – including a run with Matchbox Twenty – The Push Stars served to establish Chris as an authentic talent.

Chris Trapper’s music can best be described as lyrically driven roots–pop with a knack for telling everyday stories filled with extra–ordinary characters.

A special double feature.

Most remarkable is Billy’s amazing growth the last few years. He’s become an engaging and confident performer, a compelling recording artist, and a widely admired singer-songwriter, all relatively late in life. Winner / First Place in the 2014 Beta Hi-Fi Emerging Music Festival. His independent release, Living Documents, earned a 2014 Male Solo Artist of the Year Homey Award on Wilmington’s 93.7 WSTW, Hometown Heroes.

To listen to samples, visit www.billypennburger.com

A two-time Philadelphia Folk Festival performer (2015 & 2016), Katherine Rondeau's musical path builds on a broad range of traditional and modern folk influences – from Odetta to Lucinda Williams. How to describe Katherine's music? Rootsy folk? Soulful Americana? Katherine's rich, soulful voice is unmistakable - full of passion and strength. Her story songs take on a myriad of themes, from love lost and love preserved to robust political anthems. To listen to samples, visit www.katherinerondeau.com

An evening with Antje Duvekot and Natalia Zukerman.
A special double feature.

"Toward the Thunder" is Antje Duvekot's fourth studio release. Produced by Antje and Scott Petito and recorded at NRS studios in Woodstock, the new album centers around themes of courage, resilience and striving for something better. It features an impressive cast of folk royalty from Shawn Mullins to Anais Mitchell, Liz Longley to John Gorka, Kris Delmhorst, Martyn Joseph and Richard Shindell. In addition to nine new Duvekot originals and the traditional tune "the Parting Glass", it features a Dar Williams cover "The Light and the Sea" from which the record title and album art are derived. To listen to samples, visit www.antjeduvekot.com

Natalia Zukerman grew up in New York City, studied art at Oberlin, worked in mural arts in San Francisco, began her songwriting career in Boston, and now resides, writes, plays and paints in Brooklyn, NY. The daughter of classical musicians Eugenia and Pinchas Zukerman, Natalia found her sound in other strings – those on slide guitar, lap steel, dobro. With diverse influences that include Folk, Jazz, Blues, Rock, Bluegrass, Country and even Classical, Natalia Zukerman has been described by public radio as “an example of the finest Americana.” She combines her unique slide guitar playing style with seductive vocals, a painter’s observing eye, unapologetic writing, and sharp wit. Zukerman’s music is as riddled with urban restlessness as it is grounded in rootsy warmth – a welcome contradiction. To listen to samples, visit www.nataliazukerman.com

An evening with Mark Erelli.
To listen to samples, visit www.markerelli.com

Even today, it’s possible to write songs honestly and intelligently, arrange them with a sensitive ear and sing in a way that brings their stories to life. We know this, in part, because that’s what Mark Erelli does. In his quiet way, the Boston--based singer/songwriter has gathered and grown a following that values these qualities. Which is why it’s seemed too long to too many since Erelli’s last album of original material.

Despite his burgeoning career as a sideman in the past few years, Erelli has continued to add to his own catalog with another trio of eclectic projects. In 2007 came Innocent When You Dream, a homespun acoustic collection of lullabies and love songs by Wilco, Townes VanZandt, and James Taylor, among others. Erelli then teamed up with producer Zack Hickman to explore modern times and matters of the heart with equal parts courage and compassion on 2008's Delivered. Employing new sonic textures like horns and keyboards, Delivered had a stark, muscular timelessness, embodying "the best qualities of the folk-populist lineage that began with Woody Guthrie, and is carried today by Bruce Springsteen (Sing Out!)."

An evening with Hope Country.
To listen to samples, visit www.hopecountrymusic.com

Born and raised on a farm in Wisconsin, Brent had a desire to see the world and travel at an early age. He began playing in bands at 17 and has since toured in over 40 states as well as all over Canada. His desire to create an environment and place of hope led him to start Hope Country in 2011. With an emphasis on strong songwriting and storytelling lyrics, Hope Country has developed into a prime example of modern-day Americana.

Hope Country has released two EPs in the past three years and has supported them with multiple headline tours, festival appearances, and support slots for Brandi Carlile, Ingrid Michaelson, Twin Forks, Joseph, American Aquarium, The Wild Feathers, Nikki Lane, Sturgill Simpson, Rayland Baxter, Andrew Ripp, David Cook, Soul Asylum, Martin Sexton, & more, along with a run of sold out dates with Judah & The Lion.

While “Water, Land, & Sky” is dynamic full-band record and “Thirty One” showcases Johnson’s softer singer/songwriter side, the forthcoming self-titled release marries the two, calling to mind artists such as Jason Isbell and The Avett Brothers. Lyrically, the record continues Hope Country’s heartfelt stories of life and living. The album was recorded at Summer-Winter Studios in St. Paul, MN with Levi Stugelmeyer (The Cactus Blossoms, Caitlyn Smith) and mastered by Huntley Miller (Bon Iver, The Tallest Man On Earth). The record will be released on 02.24.17 with extensive touring to follow.
