Tall Heights - Play

"Folk" has become a funny label for Tall Heights. It felt right when they went all-in on a career in music, street performing over 100 days in 6 months to fund their first recordings. It felt right when their plucky single, "To Be Young," worked its way into the hearts of their hometown, Boston MA, and spread to the nation on Pandora and Spotify. It felt right when they played 300+ shows in '13 and '14 all across the United States. However, with the Spring '15 release of live singles "Spirit Cold" and "Horse to Water," Tall Heights stays true to their harmony, cello and guitar laden souls, while creating something brand new.

Bumper Jacksons - Play

"Wildly inventive, eclectic and the most fun you can ever have at an old-fashioned dance party, DC’s Bumper Jacksons have quickly gained national recognition for their blend of jazz, swing, blues and old-time country tunes, as well as original compositions that harken back to an era of white lightning, Appalachian hollers and New Orleans’ jazz clubs. With influences that range from Hank Williams to Bessie Smith and an impressive repertoire of tunes, both old-timey and brand spankin’ new, you could say the Bumper Jacksons have been there, done that; wrote the country song."

Darlingside - Play

With four distinct voices clustered around a single microphone, Darlingside effortlessly draw audiences into their lush musical world. David Fricke of Rolling Stone describes them as “a quartet with a rich line in acoustic textures and chamber-rock dynamics.” The band’s sound, characterized by classical strings, tight vocal arrangements, bluegrass and rock instrumentation, and smart lyricism, is the product of complete collaboration among the four close friends. The group has no frontman; instead, lead vocals are traded from moment to moment, and each song features a new combination of instruments and textures, pulling heavily from folk, retro-pop, barbershop, and chamber music.

Tickets $15-$20
8 Silk Mill Drive, Hawley

Nat Osborn - Play

Dave Matthews Band opener and king of funky, spicy and intelligent tunes, The Nat Osborn Band ranges from lush, hypnotic ballads about heartbreak, polyrhythmic Latin-rock, & drunken tangos about destitute desire. This full 7 piece band is as enthralling as it is catchy and layered with theatrical elements and occasional reggae beats. Osborn’s raspy vocals and euphoric hooks, matched with the band’s dangerously tight rhythm section and powerful three piece horn section has resulted in sold out shows across the North East. Having performed with the likes of Paul Simon, Wynton Marsalis, Ludacris, and Marc Broussard, Osborn’s seasoned bandmates have created a completely undeniable performance unit with a truly captivating sound.
