Heather Maloney

This western Massachusetts-based artist has received numerous accolades for her startlingly soulful voice, and literate songwriting; exploring themes of spirituality, transformation, and impermanence. Maloney marks life lessons on the acclaimed singer-songwriter's self-titled third album, released last March. She has penned tuneful reminders to herself about the little triumphs of love on "Flutter", the solace of redemption on "Turn Yourself Around", and her firm belief that nothing's colder than trying too hard to be cool, an idea that inspired "Fire for You". Although Maloney's influences are largely rooted in what she calls "adventurous folk", she pushes outward on the 11 songs, digging deeper, and roaming wider, than she has before... on songs populated by vivid characters that ultimately trace their way back to her."Her music is riveting, her voice adventurous, her lyrics thought-provoking... Maloney's expansive range can handle Ella Fitzgerald-style jazz scat and adapt to Beatlesque pop or Joni Mitchell folk..." --Depression "Heather Maloney is one of the most talented tradition-based singer-songwriters I've heard in some time...the writing is stunning." --Blurt Magazine

Mike and Ruthy

Mike + Ruthy are hard touring folk musicians from the Hudson Valley. It doesn't just mean that they play square dances on old, dusty instruments (which they do), it means they write about the times we live in using sturdy old-time melodies as their bedrock. Buckle a couple kids up in the backseat (check!) and you've got something that looks a lot like the American bohemian dream.They host their own festival (homeofthehoot.com), have archive endorsed co-writes with Woody Guthrie and Allen Ginsberg, postcards of encouragement from none other than the late Pete Seeger, and miles upon miles or touring under their belts supporting one of the best catalogs of original music being performed today.As a duo encircled around one simple microphone they alternate between whisper-soft intimacy and rafter-raising hoedowns. Expanded into a crack 5-piece roadhouse band they slalom between Motown soul and "Bringing it All Back Home Americana.Woody Guthrie's guitar killed fascists.

JP Harris and the Tough Choices

J.P. Harris and The Tough Choices play Country Music. Period. No pop, alt, rock, folk, etc. prefixes. Sick and tired of the modern PopCountry filth broadcast shamelessly and persistently across our beautiful countrysides, The Tough Choices set out to right the wrongs done to a music so classically and quintessentially American. As we speak, Hank Williams, Buck Owens, Carl Smith, and countless other champions of Honky Tonk are rolling in their graves, groaning with disgust over the watereddown contemporary excuse that the Country music industry presents us for music. Save a few Randy Travis gems and Alan Jackson hits, this flim flam is pathetic, at best.When The Tough Choices began, there were only two rules: keep it country, and keep it simple. They have done both, yet still weave burning pedal steel leads and painfully genuine guitar solos with the cool calm of a SpaghettiWestern Clint Eastwood. The Tough Choices have been described as such: ...imagine that somehow, defying the laws of nature, Hank Williams and Lemmy Kilmister hatched an egg...this egg was incubated under a neon light for twelve years (which is approximately the time Wild Turkey ages in the bottle), and were hatched in a juke joint... These ruffians draw on influences ranging from early Western Swing to roughedged Truck Driving ballads; Bob Wills all the way to Merle Haggard 15 or so years after that funny album cover with the Chihuahua in his arms. Think of them as the perfect gentlemen to bring home for Christmas, if only you could get the stains off their Wranglers and the cheap whiskey off their breath.

Matthew Larsen and The Documents
with Mark Schwaber
Matthew Larsen has been a member of the vibrant Western Massachusetts music scene for a few decades, attracting audiences with his introspective indiefolk piano pop songs. Sometimes short, quiet and sweet, and other times intense and cinematic, Matthews songs often recall serious health issues and mortality (Matthew successfully underwent a stem cell transplant at Dana Farber Cancer Institute in Boston in 2005). His band (Greg Saulmon, Alex Peterson) contributes multipart harmonies, thoughtful instrumentation and quiet, minimal percussion. Their debut release Apheresis was lovingly recorded in studios, living rooms, and hallways in Massachusetts, New York, and California, and featured a number of guest appearances by notable Western Massachusetts musicians. Special guest Mark Schwaber joins TheDocuments on stage for this show.

Sisters in Song present "A Beautiful Pair3" to benefit Ellie Fund

Let me introduce to you Sisters in Song, group of beautiful and very gifted musicians I am proud to now call my Sisters.  With my longtime friend Jeff Pietrantoni, we formed this new group in 2011 and were very proud to produce our FIRST musical production in September/October 2011 called A BEAUTIFUL PAIR.  All proceeds from this wonderful musical revue were donated to Ellie Fund, a local organization supporting Massachusetts breast cancer patients and their families (www.elliefund.org).  Read more about our concert by clicking on the following link.  (http://www.wickedlocal.com/melrose/news/lifestyle/x155801925/Local-group-helps-breast-cancer-patients-survive-the-cure#axzz1agUCQWOh)

Jeff has been a long time devotee of musical theatre and I, a true fan of all types of music.  Jeff had been brainstorming for a few years about getting a group together in order to give back to our communities through music which, in his words, “heals the soul”.  I was thrilled when he asked me to chair this concept alongside him and even prouder that the group wanted to continue its efforts in 2012 and beyond.  Unfortunately, my Breast Cancer diagnosis in 2012 prevented me from doing a show and so the 2012 concert was “postponed”.  Who would have thought that I, after performing to raise money for the Ellie Fund in 2011, would require their support and services just a few months later?  I believe that fate and faith have brought Sisters in Song and the Ellie Fund together. 

“A BEAUTIFUL PAIR2, LOVE HEALS” was performed October 4-6, 2013.  I hope that, if you attended one of the shows last year, you take me up on my challenge to come to one of the 2014 WITH A FRIEND. 

I hope to see many of you at one of the performances and, if you’re not local or cannot make any of the shows, please consider making a donation to this worthy cause.  Checks can be made out to Sisters In Song and mailed to 21 Garden Lane, Wakefield, MA  01880!  To make a donation online, go to www.elliefund.org, and click DONATE TODAY.  There is a “special option” section where you can choose SISTERS IN SONG.

Gilles Aubry Film Screenings

In conjunction with Gilles Aubry’s performance “Les Ames Amplifiées” (Amplified Souls) – on October 9th at the Goethe Institut Boston – swissnex Boston, The Film Study Center at Harvard University and the Sensory Ethnography Lab at Harvard University present two video screenings by Gilles Aubry in presence of the artist:

 

“Notes via a soundscape of Bollywood”, 32’

and

“who sees the mystery”, 27’


Synopsis of “Notes via a soundscape of Bollywood”:

Gilles Aubry’s works are established sound studies that are often connected to the politics of the aural. In Notes via a soundscape of Bollywood Aubry explores the socio-cultural city space Mhada in Mumbai in the background of the booming film industry of Bollywood. His observer position is reflected through the text adaption of Pasolini’s film essay Notes towards a film about India (1969), presented as «movie without pictures» – as soundtrack with text projection.

 

Synopsis of “who sees the mystery”:

Following the repatriation in 2010 of the Paul Bowles Collection of Moroccan traditional music from Washington to Tangier, Zouheir Atbane and Gilles Aubry started a collaborative artistic research focused on the reception of these recordings in today’s Morocco, in relation to contemporary discourse about cultural preservation.

The first outcome of this project is the sound installation “and who sees the mystery” following their residency in Tafraout, a village where Paul Bowles recorded an ‘Ahwach’ music performance in 1959.? In collaboration with local musicians and other inhabitants, the artists deliver an interpretation of the return of these music recordings to their original location, including the documentation of listening sessions, discussions and musical practice. The work deals with the politics of invisibility by establishing correspondences between Paul Bowles as an ‘invisible spectator’, the veil as a strategy of resistance against colonialism by the women of the Addal music ensemble and the Pythagorean curtain of French acousmatic music.

Pieta Brown

"There's a lot of love in this album," Pieta Brown says of Paradise Outlaw, her sixth album and fourth Red House release. "There's a lot of love in the songs and a lot of love in the way it was recorded, and hopefully that comes through." The level of emotional engagement that Brown routinely brings to her work is evident throughout Paradise Outlaw. The self-produced 14-song set fully embodies the qualities that have already established the iconoclastic singer-songwriter as a fiercely individual musical force. Recorded at Bon Iver mastermind Justin Vernon's April Base studio in Wisconsin, with a supporting cast that includes Vernon, Amos Lee and Brown's father, legendary troubadour Greg Brown, Paradise Outlaw boasts some of Pieta's most emotionally resonant compositions, and some of her most expressive performances, to date. Such gently intoxicating tunes as "Do You Know," "Wondering How," "Ricochet" and "Flowers of Love" feature organically orchestrated arrangements that accentuate the insight and intimacy of Brown's lyrics, the understated craftsmanship of her tunes, and the alluring immediacy of her uniquely expressive voice. Although the Alabama-bred, Iowa-based Brown's quietly riveting tunes and gritty, charismatic performing style resist easy categorization, they've helped her to win a fiercely loyal international fan base that extends to many of her fellow artists. "When Pieta sings you're aware of something effortless and natural, like rain on earth," Mark Knopfler observed, while Don Was called her "a great singer-songwriter who possesses major star-power magnetism," and Iris DeMent described her as "the best poet I've heard in a long damn time." Paradise Outlaw showcases Brown's established strengths while staking out fresh new creative territory. "On my last album Mercury, I was recording near Nashville with top-call studio musicians who I hadn't worked with before, and was exploring the idea of craft and trying to hone in on more classic forms than I had previously," she explains, adding, "Paradise Outlaw came from a radically different place. I was thinking a lot about freedom, experimentation, poetry, folk songs, bending forms and voices. I also wrote and delivered half the songs on the banjo, which was completely new for me."The project was set into motion in mid-2012, when Brown met Justin Vernon while both were on tour in Australia. As she recalls, "The initial spark for this quest was when the songs 'Painter's Hands' and 'Rise My Only Rose'both of which I wrote before I ever made my first albumfell out of a notebook onto the floor in a hotel room and landed next to the copy of Howl by Allen Ginsberg that I'd happened to bring out on the road. Later that night, I met Justin and he told me about his studio, and it just rolled from there. It was a fun track to follow, and one link running through it all was this spark that I caught from re-reading a lot of beat poetry, especially Ginsberg and Lawrence Ferlinghetti, and thinking about that feverish hunt for freedom, as a human." Recording in the comfortable environment of April Base, Pieta was joined by a colorful supporting cast that included co-producer and guitarist Bo Ramsey (also the artist's husband) and members of her touring band, as well as guest vocalists Justin Vernon and Amos Lee (who co-wrote and sings a duet vocal on "Do You Know"), as well as legendary multi-instrumentalist David Mansfield, who provides pedal steel, mandolin and string arrangements on the heart-tugging instrumental "Little Swainson," and Pieta's dad Greg Brown, who adds acoustic guitar on her distinctive reading of Mark Knopfler's "Before Gas and TV. The sessions emphasized inspiration and spontaneity, capturing the soulful interaction of a group of like-minded musicians in a big, warm-sounding room. "April Base and the players had a lot to do with the way the album sounds and feels," states Brown, who played piano, banjo and various guitars on the session. "I went to check out the studio before we recorded there, and I knew immediately it was the perfect place. I dug the room, and I loved the land there. I was also really comfortable with the engineer, B.J. Burton, who was really creative and open to different ways of doing things. There were a lot of unspoken connections going on, which to me is what a lot of great music is about."We recorded live, in just a few days, with everyone in one big room, and what you hear on the recording is the way the music went down as it was recorded," she continues. "Growing up around a lot of musicians and artists, I have always felt most at home among them. And that's how I made this recordingsurrounded by friends in an underground midwestern goldmine." The creative restlessness that drives Paradise Outlaw has been a constant in Pieta Brown's life. Born in Iowa, she lived in at least 17 different residences in multiple states during her youth. Her parents separated when she was two, but she grew up surrounded by artists and musicians, absorbing all manner of bohemian artistic influences. By the age of eight, she was writing poetry and instrumental music on the piano, eventually picking up the guitar and merging the two into songs. "Songwriting feels like home to me," she asserts. "I love songs because at any given moment they can do any number of thingsmake me feel better, transport me for a bit, open my mind, open my heart, articulate some wild thing I'm experiencing in a way that talking about it can't. It's a lifeline for me, and luckily it's always hanging around. One lifetime won't be enough for all the realms I want to explore. I'm experimental by nature and an explorer at heart, and that's what keeps me chasing the songs." With Paradise Outlaw documenting a compelling new chapter of her ongoing musical journey, Pieta Brown continues to seek out and conquer new creative challenges. As Pieta puts it in the album's dedication, "In the preface to a super cool book of photographs of the Beats called Paradise Outlaws, John Tytell says it well: 'The notion of paradise may be one of our ultimate fictions, but it still motivates action in the world. While the way the Beats saw the world made them outlaws, they also shared... a view of art that was unelitist, anti-hierarchical, egalitarian.' That makes a lot of sense to me. I feel like my songs come from the same beat streets and off-kilter countrysides, and the same worlds where peace, love and freedom will always be worth exploring. So to all my fellow paradise outlaws, thank you for the hopeful illusions, the grit, the grace... and above all, the songs and music that carry me through."

The Kennedys

In a career that now spans two decades, New York duo Maura and Pete Kennedy have traversed a broad musical landscape, surveying power pop, acoustic songwriting, organic rock rooted in their early days in Austin, and a Byrds-inspired jangle that drew the attention of McGuinn, Steve Earle, and most notably Nanci Griffith, whose latest CD they helped to co-produce. On their new release, "Closer Than You Know", The Kennedys strike out into new territory, this time inspired by a sojourn in Paris, where they immersed themselves in the turn of another century. As writers and producers, the Kennedys continue to mature, from their early style-conscious pop to today's burnished sheen. Always tuned to their own muse, Pete and Maura have once again come up with a unique sound that is as uplifting as it is unclassifiable.

Turkuaz

The Brooklyn-based funk army known as Turkuaz "is like tossing a lit match into a dumpster full of fireworks" (bestnewbands.com). Their stage show combines influences from Sly and the Family Stone to Talking Heads into an explosive auditory and visual circus, a full-frontal assault on the senses. After multiple residencies at NYC's Brooklyn Bowl, two blowout performances at Bear Creek Music Festival, and tours spanning the east and west coasts, Turkuaz has developed a reputation from NYC to San Francisco as the band that plays louder, faster, and harder than all the rest.Born as a side project by co-founders Dave Brandwein and Taylor Shell, Turkuaz was formed in Boston in February 2008. Unbeknownst to Dave and Taylor, a demo of theirs had been submitted to Berklee College of Music's Heavy Rotation Records by a friend. Heavy Rotation immediately added Turkuaz to their annual showcase at the Berklee Performance Center, and the spark was lit. Dave and Taylor formed the current funk monstrosity from amongst their musician friends. Turkuaz's first show was to 1,000 people at the BPC and was met with rave reviews. After 8 months in the Boston music scene, the band migrated as a whole to Brooklyn, with the intention of bringing their brand of funk to New York.With two independent album releases, tours up, down and across the country, a solid and ever-growing NYC fanbase, and the desire to only get bigger, Turkuaz keeps on perfecting their brand and continuing their upward trajectory at concerts and festivals across the country.

Rushad Eggleston

Born in a log cabin in Big Sur CA, cello-goblin Rushad Eggleston is a masterful improviser and a wildly inventive performer. He's known for his revolutionary cello playing, semi-acrobatics, and motivational songs from his own land of Sneth. Two decades of practicing and meditation led Rushad to invent bluegrass cello, co-found folk-bluegrass sensation Crooked Still, and earn a Grammy nomination with the all-star group Fiddlers 4. In 2007 he strapped on his cello and unleashed the cello-driven rock band Tornado Rider. He attended the prestigious Berklee College of Music in Boston, Massachusetts, after having won the first-ever full string scholarship in a competition. There Eggleston studied cello with Associate Professor Eugene Friesen and graduated in May 2003.After releasing a small-press album called Nico and Rushad with fellow musician Nico Georis, Eggleston made his large-scale recording debut with his Compass Records release with the group Fiddlers 4, which was nominated for a 2002 Grammy, as well as with Darol Anger's Republic of Strings, bringing him to national prominence. Eggleston has toured extensively with Darol Anger's Republic of Strings, Fiddlers 4, and the alternative folk/bluegrass group he helped found, Crooked Still. Crooked Still released two CDs with Eggleston, in 2004 and 2006. He also released a more experimental album, Playhouse of the Universe, with The Wild Band of Snee, as well as another of his goofier self-titled albums. Eggleston left Crooked Still in November 2007. Eggleston has been an instructor at Mark O'Connor's fiddle camps and conferences from 2001 to 2007. He has also taught cello at Maine Fiddle Camp at camp NEOFA.Eggleston now leads, produces, and tours nationally with his band, Tornado Rider, based out of Oakland, CA, and with other artists including Lily Henley. Tornado Rider has earned fans nationally during performances at venues like The Boom Boom Room in San Francisco and at festivals like SpringFest, Burning Man, and the Magnolia Festival.
