Matt Duke with Irene Molloy

$15 Cover

An evening with Matt Duke.
To listen to samples, visit www.dukematt.com

From turmoil to triumph to everything in-between, life is rich with incredible stories, provocative ideas, and Matt Duke wants to tap into it all. Ever since he began songwriting as a young teen, Duke found that no topic was too off limits, too taboo to explore, and he has welcomed each with an open mind and open heart if only to relay each through his own unique voice. From teen suicide and conversations of abortion on Winter Child (2006), to addiction and the impish supernatural on Kingdom Underground (2008), to Sex, God, and Rock and Roll (among other things) on One Day Die (2011), Duke personalizes every moment and channels that intensity not only through the songs themselves, but on stage as well – endearing his audiences with tremendous performances and an almost heart-breaking vulnerability. He also plays well with others – be sure to check out When I Stop Running(2011) with friends Jay Nash and Tony Lucca; a collection of songs with beautiful acoustic arrangements and lush vocal harmonies throughout. And while it is rumored that Matt Duke owns the only living Bali Tiger still left in existence, he is a man of few secrets and little appetite for the extravagant lifestyle one might assume a singer/songwriter to have.

Songwriting, recording, and touring aside, Duke enjoys participating in the program Musicians on Call, which brings bands and songwriters to the bedsides of hospital patients in the Philly area, as well as the relief program M.I.L.E. (Music Is Love Exchange), which brings service-based volunteering and the magic of the arts into communities both at home in the U.S. and abroad. A lover of food, water, sleds, and soft chuckles, Duke can tell the difference between Oxalis and Trifolium.

Charlie Parr with Hinton, Bower, and Jones

$10 Adv / $12 At the Door

An evening with Charlie Parr.
To listen to samples, visit www.charlieparr.com

Many people play roots music, but few modern musicians live those roots like Minnesota's Charlie Parr. Recording since the earliest days of the 21st century, Parr's heartfelt and plaintive original folk blues and traditional spirituals don't strive for authenticity: They are authentic. It's the music of a self-taught guitarist and banjo player who grew up without a TV but with his dad's recordings of America's musical founding fathers, including Charley Patton and Lightnin' Hopkins, Woody Guthrie and Leadbelly.

With his long scraggly hair, fathertime beard, thrift-store workingman's flannel and jeans, and emphatic, throaty voice, Parr looks and sounds like he would have fit right into Harry Smith's "Anthology of American Folk Music." Parr uses three instruments, not including his own stomping foot. He got an 1890 banjo the first time he heard Dock Boggs. "I don't do claw hammer, I don't do Scruggs-style, it's just a version of me trying to play like Dock Boggs, I guess," Parr says. He has two Nationals, a 12-string and a Resonator, which became an obsession when Parr saw a picture of Son House playing it.

He has recorded in warehouses, garages, basements and storefronts, usually on vintage equipment, which gives his work the historic feel of field recordings. It's not because he wants to sound like he was discovered 75 years ago by Alan Lomax; it's because most modern recording studios make the reticent and self-effacing Parr feel uncomfortable. He often works with engineer and mastering master Tom Herbers of Third Ear Studios in Minneapolis to give his recordings true fidelity no matter what the format, from mp3 to 180 gram vinyl to whatever is in between. Yet his music sounds so timeless that you half wonder if there's not a scratchy Paramount 78 of Charlie Parr singing and strumming somewhere.

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

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!)."

In 2009, Erelli was one of eight artists invited to the UK to write songs inspired by the life and work of Charles Darwin. After a week's composing, their eighteen new songs were debuted at a sold out concert. The resulting live recording, the Darwin Song Project, was hailed by The Guardian as "an intriguing, impressive album that results from a brave and unlikely collaboration.".

An evening with Catherine MacLellan and The Cabin Project.
A special double feature.

MacLellan’s star has long been rising in North America. Voted Critics Favourite New Discovery by Penguin Eggs Magazine in 2008, her last record Water In The Ground reached out to expand her already loyal fan base as she toured in support of legendary artists including Bruce Cockburn in the United States and Steve Forbert in the UK, while also holding her own by showcasing in Boston, Berlin, Cannes, Memphis, New York, London, and Paris. Indeed, the subtle yet steadfast strength of the album is undoubtedly the understated power of MacLellan’s songwriting and performance on the largely acoustic-driven songs. To listen to samples, visit www.catherinemaclellan.com

The Cabin Project is an orchestral indie pop band from the Portland whose sound stems from anthemic choruses, three-part harmonies, loop pedals, and string sections. The songs are musically expansive, yet retain an intimacy similar to that of The National, Bon Iver, Feist, and Mates of State. The Cabin Project recently released their second album, Heliotrope, this last October. The album came together after passing demos back and forth between coasts and collaborating with a variety of talented musicians from all over the country. The Cabin Project has worked hard to build the community of influences and collaborations that surround Heliotrope, and what results is a culminated sound that chimes earnest, reverent, and full of warmth.

3 Stories High with Meg Hutchinson

$15 Adv / $18 At the Door

An evening with 3 Stories High.
To listen to samples, visit www.christinehavrilla.com

The idea was born in 2000 -- 3 Philadelphia-area singer/songwriters, Christine Moll, Kelly Ricketts, & Christine Havrilla, members of a musical mutual admiration society, decided to collaborate on a few songs. The result was a potent blend of voices, musicianship, songwriting and energy: 3 Stories High. The addition of versatile Wilmington-based lead guitarist Rosann Mattei cemented the band’s sound.

3SH’s dynamic live shows soon led to appearances at venues, festivals, and benefits in the Northeast and beyond, including the Tin Angel, John & Peters, the Point, Bethlehem’s Musikfest, CB’s Gallery NYC, Atlanta Pride, Ralph Lauren’s Girls on the Move Tour, and many others.

Support from Michaela Majoun & 88.5 WXPN contributed to the growth of 3SH’s substantial fan base. Christine Moll’s departure in 2002 left a vocal gap, and the remaining members soon amicably parted a year later. Now, after 10 years and individual successful careers, 3 Stories High has reunited, bringing new as well as familiar material and renewed energy back to the stage!

An evening with Kris Delmhorst.
To listen to samples, visit www.krisdelmhorst.com

Kris Delmhorst's arresting new album Shotgun Singer began as an act of solitary creation. Holed up in a rural cabin with minimal recording gear and a houseful of instruments, Delmhorst recorded her new songs alone and off the clock, in late night sessions that yielded layers of intimate vocals combined with nylon string and electric guitars, cellos, keyboards, and percussion. She treated the work like oil painting, allowing the canvas to breathe and change over the course of many months until the picture emerged.

With the core of each song patiently assembled, she brought in a diverse cast of players to add sparse backing lines of drums, keys, guitar, and vinyl-based samples, and then signed on co-producer Sam Kassirer (Josh Ritter) in arrangement and mixing, enlisting him meanwhile to play keyboards and percussion on several songs. The result is collection of songs fully realized and even lush at times, but retaining a hushed intensity, a spirit of lo-fi intimacy and unhurried exploration.

An evening with Ryanhood and Ethan Pierce.
A special double feature.

High-school rivals turned award-winning, nationally-touring acoustic duo, Ryanhood learned to connect with audiences early. On the streets of Boston, Ryan Green and Cameron Hood first started the foot-stomping, story-telling, and flashy guitar-playing that they've since become known for, while busking with their acoustic guitars. One part comedic exchange and one part music ensemble, Ryanhood has built a reputation around the country as one of the most entertaining and engaging acoustic duos today. Their airtight vocal harmonies, along with Ryan’s rapidly precise guitar riffs and Cameron’s soulfully rich lead vocals, create all of the feel-good breakdowns and radio-ready hooks that fans have loved about Ryanhood for years. To listen to samples, visit www.ryanhood.com

An evening with Darlingside and Tall Heights.
A special double feature.

With four distinct voices clustered around a single microphone, Darlingside effortlessly draw audiences into their lush musical world. David Fricke of Rolling Stone describes them as “a quartet with a rich line in acoustic textures and chamber-rock dynamics.” The band’s sound, characterized by classical strings, tight vocal arrangements, bluegrass and rock instrumentation, and smart lyricism, is the product of complete collaboration among the four close friends. The group has no frontman; instead, lead vocals are traded from moment to moment, and each song features a new combination of instruments and textures, pulling heavily from folk, retro-pop, barbershop, and chamber music. Dave (bassist and former street musician), Don (guitarist, banjoist, and former boy alto), Auyon (classical violinist who studied mandolin in Ireland and Brazil) and Harris (classical cellist and guitarist) met and sang together as students at Williams College. To listen to samples, visit www.darlingside.com

In the summer of 2010, Tim Harrington and Paul Wright were playing for spare change in Boston's Faneuil Hall Marketplace. In three fast years, Tall Heights has put on hundreds of shows, headlining packed listening rooms across the country, touring down to Austin, TX to showcase at South By Southwest Music Festival, and sharing stages with national acts like David Wilcox, Ryan Montbleau, Andrew Belle, Lori McKenna, and many more. For the duo's debut full-length effort, Man of Stone (May 2013), Tall Heights hit the home studio, sinking deeper into the vast world they've meticulously built for two.

Cabin Dogs with Butch Zito

$10 Cover

An evening with Cabin Dogs.
To listen to samples, visit www.cabindogs.com

With two dogs, an eight track recorder and a book of old murder ballads, Rich and Rob Kwait would embark on their musical journey. Visiting mountain cabins from Tennessee to Vermont and listening to the country blues, the Philadelphia-based twin brothers would soon begin crafting songs of their own and bring them back to Philadelphia to play for friends on the stoop. What started as cosmic country and bluegrass would soon become something more. The rhythms would grow funkier and the sound would become more textured. But the structure and the sensibilities would remain.

Indeed, the brothers would begin to come into their own as songwriters .... and the band (including Ira Race on guitar, Stephan DiVincenzo on drums and Jeanine Reed on vocals/percussion) would begin to find their sound ... described by the growing fanbase as Cosmic American Blues. At the same time, the band would befriend Aaron "Professor Louie" Hurwitz, a respected upstate New York musician/engineer/producer who had worked for years with The Band, Mercury Rev and Graham Parker. The Cabin Dogs and the Professor would play a few shows together in Philadelphia and New York and most notably the 2004 Folk Festival. Recognizing a kindred spirit, the brothers would ask the Professor to help with their new record.

In a yellow farmhouse (LRS Studios) at the foot of Hurley Mountain in Hurley New York, the new record -- Electric Cabin -- would be recorded throughout 2005 and be ready for release in the Spring-Summer of 2006. This would be the first set of Kwait brothers songs to truly test the national airwaves. Upon initial release, Electric Cabin would immediately find a home on college, internet and AAA radio stations across the U.S. and start shining national attention on the band. Critics would compare the album to classic works by the Grateful Dead and the Band.

Charlie Phillips with Caryn Lin

Free Event

 First Friday hosted by Charlie.
Sober Night  - - - - - No BYOB

An evening with Charlie Phillips.
To listen to samples, visit www.charliephillips.com

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.

Songs from Charlie’s CDs “All Roads Lead To Home” and “JustLove!” have received airplay on WXPN 88.5 in Philadelphia and other stations across the country and internationally, and his song “Tears For Joy” has climbed to No. 12 on the November 2012 IndieWorld Country Music chart. His third CD, “What It Is” was released in January 2012 and rose to No. 23 on the RootsMusic Chart in November 2012.

An evening with A Fistful of Sugar and Meghan Cary.
A special double feature.

A collaboration between veterans of the Philadelphia folk, trip-hop, bluegrass, R&B, and musical theater scenes, A Fistful of Sugar was convened in late 2010 to solve all the world's problems with pretty little tunes. So far, so good. Centered around strong, lush vocal harmonies and driving "new folk" instrumentals, the product is a distinctly modern sound that resonates with echoes of 1930s hot jazz, traditional 'old-timey' country, gypsy jazz, and other roots musics. With six vocalists and distinctly bluegrassy instrumentation, A Fistful of Sugar has wowed audiences across the Delaware Valley with their powerful, genre-bending, energetic performances that range from the syrupy-sweet to the gritty and swampy.

Philadelphia-based singer-songwriter Meghan Cary’s music-career began as an unintentional triumph. She earned Billboard Magazine’s esteemed Critic’s Choice for Best Newcomer for her debut New Shoes.

Newman (The New Pornographers), Neko Case, Amos Lee, Gillian Welch, Linda Rondstadt and David Bromberg. Her songs "Heartless" and “The Waiting Room” were featured in the Hallmark movie Flower Girl.

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.

Living.”, the darker & electric guitar-based debut release from Gypsy Fuzz, produced by Larry Crane (Cat Power, Sleater-Kinney, Elliott Smith) and Christine, pulls in musicians from Christine’s current world of fellow friends/artists and is described as "a blend of 70’s, 80’s, and 90’s rock delivered by the modern singer/songwriter."

Heather Maloney with TBD

$12 Adv / $15 At the Door

An evening with Heather Maloney.
To listen to samples, visit www.heathermaloney.com

Heather Maloney, out in March on Signature Sounds, is the third album for a songwriter hailed by The Huffington Post for “lyrics that cut to the chase.” DigBoston wrote that she “deserves the type of cult following that has allowed the likes of Aimee Mann and Ani DiFranco that long standing success and influence they have had.”

Although Maloney’s influences are largely rooted in what she calls “adventurous folk,” she pushes outward on these 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. She uses juicy touches of pop, and a little dash of rock ’n’ roll on “Iron Bull,” a song she wrote after visiting Zucotti Park during, Occupy Wall Street.

An evening with Irene Molloy, Andrea Nardello and Kicking Down Doors. A special triple feature.

Irene grew up in Philadelphia, belting out show tunes in school plays and church in hymns on Sunday. After catching the ear of Andrew Lloyd Webber, doors began to open for her quickly in show business. By 18, she had been a soloist on many famous stages including Philly's Academy of Music, Broadway's St. James Theatre, and London's Palladium. In the next few years, she starred in the musical Civil War, and on the small screen (in Darren Starr's Grosse Pointe and FOX's Andy Richter...). She has recently returned to Philadelphia to debut her first album of original songs. To listen to samples, visit www.reverbnation.com/irenemolloy

Andrea has garnered favorable comparisons to Melissa Etheridge and Shawn Colvin for her gift for melding pop songwriting smarts with a confessional and literate songwriting style which often explores relationships, romance, and family life. Her refined accessibility draws from folk, rock, soul, and even the swagger of hip-hop. She’s built a respectable indie artist profile through DIY ethics and tireless touring. To listen to samples, visit www.andreanardello.com

The project of co-songwriters Ernie Tokay (guitar and vocals) and Autumn Walden (vocals) as well as bassist Michelle Lynn, Kicking Down Doors blends a warm and inviting country sound with personal, introspective lyrics about perseverance, hope and the human spirit. Their new full-length album 'The Record' is available on CD at all of their events. Various tracks off the album as well as several of the band's single releases can be heard in rotation on both Philadelphia's WXPN 88.5 FM and Wilmington's WSTW 93.7 FM local shows.
