Join us for our brand new concert series: Come On Up To The House: A Songwriting Showcase as we host Mark Erelli, Dinty Child and Lisa Bastoni all on stage together.
This on-going concert series will feature some of the best songwriters on stage together where they will swap songs, share stories, jump in and back each other all in front of you, the audience - providing an intimate exchange and spontaneity that makes for some of the best magic and memorable concert experiences.
Mark Erelli (host) has forged a colorful career by making the art of “being everywhere all the time” seem effortless. It’s hard to think of another artist who seems equally at home serving as a sideman for GRAMMY-winning artists like Paula Cole, Marc Cohn, and Josh Ritter, or producing albums for Lori McKenna, as he does writing and producing his own material, like 2019’s “By Degrees,” on which he was joined by a host of voices including Rosanne Cash and Sheryl Crow. That song was nominated for “Song Of The Year” at the 2019 Americana Music Awards, and served to reintroduce Erelli to a wider audience. And just in time, because his 2020 album Blindsided combines the exuberance of Erelli’s signature sound with the wisdom that comes with over 20 years of songwriting, capturing an artist at a point in his career where he is clearly digging deep and swinging for the fences.
Dinty Child is a longtime member of the Boston roots/folk scene. A fearless multi-instrumentalist, he can most often be seen with the band Session Americana, as well as the Chandler Travis Philharmonic, the unapologetically loud and grimy Catbirds, as sensitive sideman to any number of singer/songwriters, including Rose Cousins and Kris Delmhorst, and even fronting the twenty piece party band, the Funky White Honkies.
Singer-songwriter Lisa Bastoni is a 2019 Kerrville New Folk Winner, and is a 2019 Boston Music Award nominee (Folk Artist of the Year). Her new album, How We Want to Live (September 2019), chronicles life changes, including songs about the dissolution of her marriage and learning to live a new normal -- but more than anything, it finds the songwriter diving deeper into the life she craves.
