The Young Novelists
Thursday, September 24th at 7PM
Simon & Garfunkel meets Johnny and June; this Canadian folk-roots duo is known for their deft songwriting and gorgeous harmonies. With their band they won the Galaxie Rising Star Award in 2010 and their first EP was hailed as “a work of unpretentious brilliance” by Exclaim! Magazine. They have since released two albums to further critical acclaim and have toured across Canada and into the United States. Relying on their shared passion for storytelling, the husband and wife duo sing songs about small towns, redemption, love, and loss. Their second full-length studio album was released on April 28, 2015.
Monday, November 2nd at 8PM
INFJ, so named for their shared MBTI personality type, is Hayley Simmons and Scott Thompson. The pair, first introduced via social media by a mutual friend, initially worked long distance before convening last summer in Providence, RI to record their debut EP. The self-titled effort, co-produced by Ben Knox Miller (The Low Anthem) at the Columbus Theater, has been described as "poignant pop," (Redline Roots) and "brilliantly walking the fine line between warmly melodic and darkly haunting," (Twangville). Having since closed their geographical gap, INFJ began playing its initial shows around New England in Summer 2015.
The Horse-Eyed Men
Thursday, January 21st at 8PM
The Horse-Eyed Men are two brothers - Noah and Dylan Harley - who play original, disgruntled Americana and country. Raised by musical humans in a former candy store outside of Providence R.I., one or both of them have played for years throughout Europe and the U.S. under various monikers: The Cowboy Killers, The Rosewater Ladies, and most recently with the neo-diluvian klezmer outfit Tik Tok Laboratories. Their music mixes spaghetti-western themes with cabaret, ragtime, and post-partum punk. Their latest album, Grave Country, was recorded in Copenhagen on a grant from the Danish Arts Council in the summer of 2013, and was released in July 2014.
Friday, March 11th at 8PM
Well-established as solo performers in their home state of Rhode Island, Tracie Potochnik and Steve Allain joined forces in 2014 to form Cardboard Ox. The duo is
Mark Mandeville & Raianne Richards
Thursday, May 26 at 8PM
Mark Mandeville and Raianne Richards are clearly inheritors of a timeless legacy, creating music that is both original and evocative of a rich tradition. Blending distinctive voices and a wide range of accompaniment (guitar, harmonica, ukulele, clarinet, penny whistle, electric bass), their songs have been well-received by audiences around the eastern United States since 2010. Transcending the genre of folk Americana, their music echoes inspiration from traditional folk duos and singer/songwriters like Ian & Sylvia, Kate Wolf and Neil Young – combining beautiful harmonies and a lyrical intensity, while establishing a unique sound of their own.
