NEW HAMPSHIRE NEW BOOKINGS
January 23 SISTER HAZEL
(second show added)
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”, marking the band’s quickest album-to-album turnaround in their 15-plus-year career.

“Liv Taylor is a must-see in concert; the man knows how to entertain!” - americanaroots.com
“One of the most consistently entertaining, tasteful, and intelligent of songsmiths—”
– Dirty Linen Magazine
Consistently impressive and entertaining— – The Washington Post
Livingston Taylor is the ultimate crowd pleaser. – Performing Songwriter Magazine
“An unrepentant romantic, with a razor-sharp mind, a biting sense of humor, and a quirky view of the world.—” – Wood and Steel Magazine
“I remember we played at this club called the Iron Horse, in Massachusetts, opening for Livingston Taylor. He sold it out two nights in a row. Three hundred people. I remember thinking, ‘What a great career!’ “– Norah Jones
June 6 RIK EMMETT
Come join Rik Emmett, lead singer and guitarist for the rock band Triumph, for a special performance at Tupelo! Rik will be performing a mix of classics, acoustic , jazz and blues, as well as performing as part of the Strung Out Troubadours with guitarist Dave Dunlop. It is a show not to be missed as these two master guitarists duke it out on stage.
Emmett and Dunlop (from the rock band Full Nine) first played together during a master class session at the National Summer Guitar Workshop in 1990. Much of their material originates from their acoustic guitars, with Rik singing lead vocal on some selections.
In 2007, Strung-Out Troubadours won “Album of the Year” and “Group/Duo Of The Year” at the Canadian Smooth Jazz Awards, where they were the most heavily-nominated act. Both Rik and Dave were also nominated for “Best Guitarist”, a category that Emmett had captured back in 2005. (Listen)
June 19 THE ENGLISH BEAT
Formed in Birmingham (UK) in 1978, this much loved multi-racial sextet (Dave Wakeling, guitar/vocals; Rankin’ Roger, vocals; Andy Cox, guitar; Dave Steel, bass; Everett Moreton, drums; Saxa, saxophone) took the Specials’ blueprint and added high-spirited pop appeal, all spiced up with a ska authenticity provided by legendary bluebeat saxophonist Saxa.
February 2003 saw a dream come true for many Beat fans as the band reunited for a minitour in the UK, which culminated in their acclaimed, sold out command performance at the Royal Festival Hall! It was a magical homecoming for the band and for the fans, with band members and fans gathering from around the globe for a night or irie, ska-ful rock-steady Beat!
Being the hard driving ska legend that he is, however, Dave was not content to rest on his laurels after the RFH reunion. Dave continues to tour the U.S., Canada, Mexico and the UK with an amazing all-star ska backing band playing the hits of The Beat, General Public, and his new songs. (Listen)
