We All Need To Know Eric Erdman

Some friends are big supporters of Alabama-based singer-songwriter Eric Erdman; since we have similar taste in music (we met at AmericanaFest), they suggested I would enjoy his recent release, It’s Not Like You Don’t Know Me. They were right!!!

Magic Happened

It is rare that I use ‘magic’ to describe a music or any other event, but magical is the perfect description for the evening with Livingston Taylor at The Extended Play Sessions at the Fallout Shelter.

An Evening In Singer-Songwriter Heaven

I had never seen Mary Chapin Carpenter perform despite wanting to see her, so I was thrilled when her show was announced for the Lowell Summer Music Series this year. I grew even more excited about the show when I read that Rose Cousins would open the show.

Even though a brief unexpected shower occurred a few minutes before MCC was to take the stage, the audience’s spirits were not dampened by the ten-minute delay waiting for the rain to end.

Dom Flemons, The American Songster, Captivated The Full House

I cannot say I have seen Dom Flemons perform ‘many’ times, but I have seen him enough to recognize that he is one of the most engaging, knowledgeable, and talented musicians touring today.  The show this week at Boston’s Museum of Fine Arts was as good a show of Dom’s as the others I have seen.
