Cliff Eberhardt Concert
Red House recording artist Cliff Eberhardt knew by age seven that he was going to be a singer and songwriter. As a child Cliff taught himself to play guitar, piano, bass and drums. In his teens Eberhardt was fortunate enough to live close to the Main Point (one of the best folk clubs on the East Coast), where he cut his teeth listening to the likes of James Taylor, Joni Mitchell, Bruce Springsteen, Howlin' Wolf, Muddy Waters, Bonnie Raitt, and Mississippi John Hurt - receiving an early and impressive tutorial in acoustic music. At the same time, he was also listening to great pop songwriters like Cole Porter, the Gershwins, and Rodgers and Hart, which explain his penchant for great melodies and clever lyrical twists. A driving force of the Greenwich Village New Folk movement and well known among his peers, Cliff's songs have been covered by the likes of Richie Havens, Buffy St. Marie, Erasure, Lucy Kaplansky and the folk superstar band "Cry, Cry, Cry" (Dar Williams, Richard Shindell, Lucy Kaplansky). "Eberhardt is a superb singer, with a vast credible range of emotions, and a soulfulness that draws from rock and pop, but also from the best folk ballad styles." - The Boston Globe "Eberhardt is one of the most original songsmiths currently on tour, a highly intelligent and articulate artist whose penetrating and profound lyrics are sometimes overshadowed by his extraordinary guitar playing. Upon close listening, the Philadelphia-born singer's gift for the English language is abundantly clear. The words that tumble from his mouth are framed by a raspy yet deeply elegant voice" - Folk Music Society of Huntington New York

The Slambovian Circus of Dreams in Concert, April 2, 2016
$22 Members, $24 Non-Members(General tickets) Called everything from 'hillbilly-Pink Floyd' to 'folk-pop' to 'surreal Americana', New York's Slambovian Circus of Dreams (AKA The Grand Slambovians) "is a riveting, mesmerizing, crazy, amazing machine of music." Chronogram Magazine. A rootsy psychedelica that MAVERICK MAGAZINE calls "Mightily impressive and hugely original rock from the cool end of Americana", their melodic avant-folk conjures with an exotic instrumental arsenal and a palette of styles ranging from dusty Americana ballads to huge Pink Floydesque cinematic anthems. The Slambovians charm from the first note with thought provoking lyrics - creating intrigue and attraction for thinking audiences. Formed in Sleepy Hollow, New York over a decade ago, they pioneered the alt-folk circuit, staying on the fringes of the music industry. Winning support from indie radio and press since their inception, fans fueled their career from the ground up to an international status. Having headlined major music festivals and venues across the US, Canada and UK, this band has a devoted cult following. The band is led by songwriter Joziah Longo (vocals/guitar/harmonica) "Soothing and bewitching as a snake oil tonic, the entire root system of Rock Family Trees is embedded in Longo's voice." - The Big Issue, Scotland, UK, and joined by Sharkey McEwen (guitar, mandolin), Tink Lloyd (accordion, cello, etc), and Eric Puente (drums, percussion). They create a captivating vibe that feeds the soul. "9 out of 10 - Love at first spin!" Americana UK; "Super and Natural... I love this band!" - WXPN Philadelphia; "Songs imbued with mystical stirrings and idealism... they took the stage by storm!"

Gurf Morlix in Concert
Saturday, May 7, 2016 $22 Members, $24 Non-Members(General tickets) Once, when asked by a promoter for a copy of his biography, Gurf Morlix responded with just two words, "legendary integrity." He would later admit that his response was perhaps a bit pompous, "but true," he added. "Well, half true anyway." The story is a telling one, demonstrating not only Morlix's directness, which is famous among his musical colleagues or perhaps infamous, depending on who you ask - but also his dry sense of humor and no-bullshit approach to life, music, and the music business. Had he sent the promoter a more traditional bio, it likely would have noted that Gurf was born in Lackawanna, New York (near Buffalo), saw the Beatles on Ed Sullivan, formed a band (in which Peter Case made his stage debut), moved to Austin to escape the cold and play music, befriended Blaze Foley and a bunch of other Austin characters, moved to Los Angeles, worked for more than a decade as Lucinda Williams' guitarist, band-leader and backing vocalist, produced Lucinda's acclaimed Sweet Old World and eponymous albums, famously left Lucinda, toured with Warren Zevon, moved back to Austin, produced a number of classic Americana albums you likely own if you are any kind of Americana music fan, played on many more albums you probably own if you fall into that category, got inducted into the Austin Music Hall of Fame, received the Americana Music Association's "Instrumentalist of the Year" award, went on to make seven critically acclaimed albums of his own, and then toured the world supporting them. He now continues to play live, produce albums for the artists that move him, and make his own albums. He even goes fishing ever once in a while. That's the resume, but it's Gurf's integrity, combined his near innate sense of music and how to make it sound not just good, but great, that have attracted so many well-respected artists to work with him over the years - folks like Ian McLagan, Patty Griffin, Robert Earl Keen, Buddy Miller, Mary Gauthier, Tom Russell, Butch Hancock, Slaid Cleaves and Ray Wylie Hubbard, just to name a few. And, oh yeah, he can make nearly any instrument with strings either sing or growl, depending on the needs of the song, like no other musician out there. Gurf's eighth album, 2015's Eatin' At Me, kicks off with wailing guitars and an annual family car trip to "Dirty Ol' Buffalo." Never one to shy away from the gritty side of life, the portrait he paints of the rust belt city of his youth, with its rugged roads and smoky orange air, ain't pretty, but it's real and authentic to the core. Unlike the shiny city of today, all polished up with money and a thin coat of paint barely hiding the grease below, "Dirty Ol' Buffalo" is the kind of place that stays with a person long after they've left. The nine songs that follow on Eatin' At Me have that same lasting quality and clearly come from a man who looks at life and the world around him, with all its grit and glory, unflinchingly. His songs tell tales of love and regret, happy memories and heartbreak, the kinds of things that stay will with a person, eating away at them, if allowed. What makes the songs unshakable is indeed Gurf's "legendary integrity," the authenticity of the characters he introduces, the empathy and fearlessness with which their stories are told, and the care with which the songs are made. No word, no note, is out of place, and like the many well-known and well-loved albums he's produced and played on, Gurf's own records are infused with his trademark grit and muddy groove resulting in quality that's so real, listeners will feel it in their bones. Indeed, it's the kind of album that stays with a person long after they've listened.

Rusty Belle in Concert
Saturday, February 6, 2016 $20 Members, $22 Non-Members(General tickets) Roots-Rock/Junk-Folk There is a room in the house, somewhere past the attic, where you keep the more eccentric pieces of your life, the whimsical things that hold a strange place in your heart and that you just can't seem to throw away. The ham radios and phonograhs, antique pinwheels, figure skates and marbles. Perhaps somewhere way in the back there's a beat up old guitar. This is the room where Rusty Belle lives a trio of musicians who "play music that is already familiar to your heart and soul, you just haven't heard it yet". (James Hamel, Composer). Rusty Belle was founded in 2006 when brother and sister Matt and Kate Lorenze with Zak Trojano and an indeterminate number of other artists. They thrived in this fiercely creative environment that often frightened the neighbors and sometimes alarmed the police. Inspired by the constant stimulus and activity of their home, the band crafted a unique sound and writing style. "They're a little bit country, a little bit rock n' roll, a little bit old-timey and a whole lotta weird", says Seven Days Vermont, "but in a good way.
