We are watching the forecast as we prepare to open our 50th anniversary season with The Lone Bellow, which we hope will take place in Prescott Park as planned. Given the rainy/stormy outlook, however, we are exhausting all options for potentially moving this show indoors. This show is not part of our Rain or Shine Series partnership with The Music Hall so we will not be able to move the show there. That said, we are looking at other potential indoor spaces in Portsmouth and seeing if we can work something out. We will keep you posted of any changes as we get closer! Advanced General Admission Donations have been temporarily closed until we know more. Thanks for your patience and understanding.

The Lone Bellow burst onto the scene with their self-titled debut in 2013. The Nashville-based trio (Zach Williams, Brian Elmquist, Kanene Pipkin) quickly became known for their transcendent harmonies, serious musicianship and raucous live performance — creating what NPR calls, ‘earnest and magnetic folk-pop built to shake the rafters.’ In 2015, the band released Then Came The Morning, produced by The National’s Aaron Dessner. The album was nominated for an Americana Music Award and took the band to numerous late night shows including Jimmy Kimmel LiveLate Show With David Letterman and Later…with Jools Holland, among others. In 2017, The Lone Bellow returned with Walk Into A Storm, produced by legendary music producer Dave Cobb (Chris Stapleton, Brandi Carlile, Sturgill Simpson), followed by 2020’s Half Moon Light, an artistic triumph the band worked toward for years.

In a departure from their past work with elite producers Dessner and Cobb, the trio struck out on their own for their fifth full-length album Love Songs for Losers, dreaming up a singular sound encompassing everything from arena-ready rock anthems to the gorgeously sprawling Americana tunes the band refers to as “little redneck symphonies.” Recorded at the possibly haunted former home of the legendary Roy Orbison, the result is an intimate meditation on the pain and joy and ineffable wonder of being human, at turns heartbreaking, irreverent, and sublimely transcendent.

After sketching the album’s 11 songs in a nearby church, the band holed up for eight weeks at Orbison’s house on Old Hickory Lake, slowly carving out their most expansive and eclectic body of work yet. Co-produced by Elmquist and Jacob Sooter, Love Songs for Losers also finds Pipkin taking the reins as vocal producer, expertly harnessing the rarefied vocal magic they’ve brought to the stage in touring with the likes of Maren Morris and Kacey Musgraves.

For The Lone Bellow, the triumph of completing their first self-produced album marks the start of a thrilling new chapter in the band’s journey. “At the outset it was scary to take away the safety net of working with a big-name producer and lean on each other instead,” says Pipkin. “It took an incredible amount of trust, but in the end it was so exciting to see each other rise to new heights.” And with the release of Love Songs for Losers, the trio feel newly emboldened to create without limits. “This album confirmed that we still have beauty to create and put out into the world, and that we’re still having fun doing that after ten years together,” says Elmquist. “It reminded us of our passion for pushing ourselves out onto the limb and letting our minds wander into new places, and it sets me on fire to think of what we might make next.”

with Harrison Goodell

Hailing from seacoast New Hampshire, singer-songwriter Harrison Goodell was raised on American staples like Tom Petty, Paul Simon, and Billy Joel who serve as inspiration to his own sound. Their same troubadour essence is carried into his songwriting as he portrays vulnerable stories from his life and relationships. Harrison uses his songwriting as a window into his subconscious; a bridge to his intuition and honesty. Harrison’s obsessive dedication to music and pure grit lead him to his biggest achievements to date including his run on ABC’s American Idol and opening for Grammy-nominated artist JP Saxe in Burlington, VT. Harrison’s recent success has connected him to a dedicated New England audience who continue to sell out venues. With his passion for creating music that resonates with his followers, Harrison is establishing himself as an artist to watch in the industry.

This concert is made possible in part through the support of the evening sponsor, Hotel Thaxter, located in downtown Portsmouth.
