OUR NEXT NEW HAMPSHIRE SHOWS
March 12 FRANK FM “Live at Frank’s Place” show with Josh Logan
This show is SOLD OUT.
March 13 THE MAKEM AND SPAIN BROTHERS
Every generation has a few acts that define where a musical genre is going, performers so confident in their chosen field that they are able to completely embrace the genre and yet introduce something new to it. In Irish folk music today, that act is the Makem and Spain Brothers.
Not in the past 30 years has a group taken the international stage with such vocal power and stage presence, capturing the essence of their genre, while standing out as something truly unique. A host of various instruments and five male vocals, using precise three-part harmonies blend perfectly for what many have described as a wall of sound. The Makem and Spain Brothers are at their best onstage where their talent and enthusiasm draw in fans who have never experienced the joy of folk music.
The band of brothers who were once considered the new kids on the block, have honed their craft over two decades of international performances and are now one of the truly stalwart, road-tested Irish vocal groups available. They have played before millions of people from Canada to Texas, from California to the Caribbean and over to Ireland, highlighting national PBS specials and popular Irish talk shows along the way.
The Makem Brothers, Conor and Rory, were born in Drogheda, County Louth, about an hour north of Dublin. They continue the lineage of one of Irish music’s dynasties, begun by their grandmother Sarah Makem, who was sought after by song collectors for her store of traditional Irish songs. Their father is Tommy Makem, the modern day Bard of Armagh. Now considered an icon, he helped to bring Irish music out of the corner and into the international spotlight, where it has remained ever since. (Listen)

NEW HAMPSHIRE NEW BOOKINGS
May 9 KRIS DELMHORST
Kris Delmhorst grew up in Brooklyn NY, but her musical home is in Boston MA where she cut her teeth on open mics, bar gigs, and subway busking before embarking on her life as an internationally touring songwriter. She has released six albums on respected indie label Signature Sounds. Delmhorst now lives in the hills of western Massachusetts with her husband, songwriter Jeffrey Foucault, with whom she occasionally performs as part of the collective Redbird.
On May 13th, Delmhorst will release her seventh album, BLOOD TEST (Signature Sounds) – her first of original music since 2008′s critically acclaimed album SHOTGUN SINGER. A prolific writer and constant collaborator, Delmhorst continues to share her unique perspective in this new work. The album describes a moment of reckoning and centering in the songwriter’s life, and in society as a whole. In a collection of songs which move between triumph and heartbreak, restlessness and responsibility, Delmhorst acknowledges the weary work of an intentioned life – and the new American dream of presence and perspective in a frenetic time.

May 23 CHAD PERRONE
More than a decade after breaking into the Boston music scene, Chad Perrone continues to play to large crowds of dedicated followers, friends and new supporters. Since 2005, Perrone has put out 3 full-length studio records, a live record, garnered five Boston Music Award Nominations and had the opportunity to share the stage with the likes of Sting, Guster, The Goo Goo Dolls, SafetySuit, Parachute and more. From his early years fronting the band Averi, to his departure and solo efforts to-date, Perrone continues to put out records that have found their way to more than one reviewer’s ‘top of the year’ list.
Frequenting renowned clubs in New England and New York, whether with a full band, as part of a duo (with his best friend Dennis Carroll on piano), or through an intimate solo performances, Perrone continues to bring his recorded music to life. “I know my songs end up being serious, but I’m really quite the goofball. I just try to keep the shows themselves light. We’ll be serious when the time calls for it, and hopefully laugh a lot during the rest of the time.” (Listen)
June 27 DAVID BROMBERG
“The reason man created stringed instruments. David touched them with a lover’s fingers and they moaned that true love right back at him. Wood and wire and flesh spoke.”
- Jerry Jeff Walker on David Bromberg
He’s played with everyone, he’s toured everywhere, he can lead a raucous big band or hold an audience silent with a solo acoustic blues.
Bromberg began studying guitar-playing when he was 13 and eventually enrolled in Columbia University as a musicology major. The call of the Greenwich Village folk scene in the mid-’60s drew David to the downtown clubs and coffeehouses, where he could watch and learn from the best performers, including primary sources such as his inspiration and teacher, the Reverend Gary Davis.
Bromberg’s sensitive and versatile approach to guitar-playing earned him jobs playing the Village “basket houses” for tips, the occasional paying gig, and lots of employment as a backing musician for Tom Paxton, Jerry Jeff Walker and Rosalie Sorrels, among others. He became a first-call, “hired gun” guitarist for recording sessions, ultimately playing on hundreds of records by artists including Bob Dylan (New Morning, Self Portrait, Dylan), Link Wray, The Eagles, Ringo Starr, Willie Nelson, and Carly Simon. (Listen)
August 7 ANA POPOVIC
Widely regarded as one of worlds very best female guitar-players, Ana’s career has been meteoric and shows no signs of slowing down! The 4x Blues Music Awards nominee blends smoking electric funk slide guitar, jazzy instrumentals and tight blues groove with soulful feminine vocals. Her incredible stage presence makes her an irresistible force in the music world. (Listen)
Sept. 28 GRACE KELLY
When it comes to saxophonist /vocalist/composer/lyricist/arranger/educator Grace Kelly, people seem to be divided into two groups: those who marvel at her proficiency, creativity and ever-accelerating growth, and those who have yet to encounter the 20-year-old wunderkind. The ranks of the former category are growing by the day. Trumpeter and Jazz at Lincoln Center Artistic Director Wynton Marsalis was so impressed with Kelly’s three-night stand as guest of the Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra that he invited her to join the ensemble at the Kennedy Center’s Eisenhower Theater in Washington, D.C. as part of the President Obama Inauguration Celebration. Keith Lockhart invited Grace to be a special guest with the Boston Pops Orchestra when she was14 years old. Harry Connick, Jr. heard Kelly in a master class on a December afternoon and brought her on stage to sit in with his band that night. Since then, Kelly has been voted “Best Jazz Act” in Boston four consecutive years in the FNX/Phoenix Best Music Poll, and this past year voted “Best National Jazz Act”, received the ASCAP Foundation’s Young Jazz Composers Award in 2007, 2008, 2010, and 2011 and won “Jazz Artist of the Year” at the Boston Music Awards in both 2008 and 2010. The 2009, 2010, and 2011 Downbeat Critics Poll added to her list naming her one of the “Alto Saxophone Rising Stars”, the youngest ever to be named so. Grace named Glamour Magazine’s “Top 10 College Women of 2011″ (Listen)
