OUR NEXT NEW HAMPSHIRE SHOWS
December 5 SISTER HAZEL
Sister hazel is of the most revered American alternative rock bands ever. Their unique sound is characterized by an infectious blend of folk rock, pop, classic rock ‘n’ roll and southern rock. Best known for the mega radio hit “All for You”, their music is defined by highly melodic tunes, prominent harmonies and optimistic lyrics. The band’s instrumentation often features abrupt shifts among electric, acoustic and a cappella, with a striking use of tacets.
Sister Hazel’s creative train just keeps rolling. Last year’s well-received “Release” reached the band’s highest ever spot (#37) on the Billboard Album Charts, topping even their platinum disc “Somewhere More Familiar,” and they are keeping the momentum going with “Heartland Highway” (Oct. 12, 2010, Rock Ridge Music), marking the band’s quickest album-to-album turnaround in their 15-plus-year career.
December 6 OPEN MIC NIGHT
This Month’s Open Mic Night features Jonee Earthquake. Always a great night of music, you can’t go wrong. For only $5 you can play a couple of songs or sit back and just watch the show.
December 8 THE SMITHEREENS
This show is SOLD OUT.
December 9 TOM RUSH
Tom Rush is a gifted musician and performer, whose shows offer a musical celebration—.a journey into the tradition and spectrum of what music has been, can be, and will become. His distinctive guitar style, wry humor and warm, expressive voice have made him both a legend and a lure to audiences around the world. His shows are filled with the rib-aching laughter of terrific story-telling, the sweet melancholy of ballads and the passion of gritty blues.
Rush’s impact on the American music scene has been profound. He helped shape the folk revival in the ’60s and the renaissance of the ’80s and ’90s, his music having left its stamp on generations of artists. James Taylor told Rolling Stone, “Tom was not only one of my early heroes, but also one of my main influences.” Country music star Garth Brooks has credited Rush with being one of his top five musical influences. Rush has long championed emerging artists. His early recordings introduced the world to the work of Joni Mitchell, Jackson Browne and James Taylor, and in more recent years his Club 47 concerts have brought artists such as Nanci Griffith and Shawn Colvin to wider audiences when they were just beginning to build their own reputations.
NEW HAMPSHIRE NEW BOOKINGS
January 10 ALAN DOYLE of Great Big Sea
In 1993, he joined forces with fellow pub warriors Sean McCann, Bob Hallett, and Darrell Power, and together they started Great Big Sea, where they fused Newfoundland traditional music with their own pop sensibilities. Doyle assumed the role of lead singer, and the band-mates began to assault the music business from their Newfoundland base. 19 years later, the band continues to astonish crowds around the world with their energy, musical skill and an ingrained inability to take themselves too seriously. A major band in Canada for a generation, their nine albums and two DVD releases have been declared Gold or Platinum. In the United States they are considered a major concert attraction, and play sold out theatres and hockey arenas across the continent.
With the release of Boy On Bridge, his new album, Alan enters a new phase of his career. After almost 20 years with Great Big Sea, he is stepping out on his own. Listen
