James Garner
A Tribute to Johnny Cash

James Garner’s Tribute to Johnny Cash celebrates the life and music of the Man in Black with strong conviction and stunning accuracy. Garner and his band faithfully recreate Cash’s biggest hits, such as Folsom Prison Blues, I Walk the Line and Ring of Fire, and incorporate historical accounts and personal anecdotes about America’s most beloved singing storyteller in this not-to-be-missed musical event. The show is a fun, classy and toe-tapping trip down memory lane honoring Johnny Cash’s life and music, and the boom-chicka-boom sound of his signature backing band, the Tennessee Three.

Dirk Hamilton - CD release show
Singer songwriter Dirk Hamilton is an exciting, solo acoustic performer/songwriter whose shows and songs range from powerful rock intensity, to blues feel to a light folk music beauty. Hamilton is a prolific artist who has released 18 albums under various labels, including his own, Acoustic Rock Records. The latest is Touch and Go, due out this month.

It was in the mid to late 1970s that Dirk recorded four critically acclaimed albums for major labels: two while at ABC Records, and two while at Elektra/Asylum Records- these albums were critically acclaimed and he was on the verge of a very big break. That very big break never quite came, and yet he has persevered with terrific songs, new and older, always delivering on a show that is viscerally exciting, often funny, and many times poignant and introspective. He is a poet and musician known for his uniquely intelligent lyrics and passionate performance style, creating music that can't be pigeon-holed into one genre or another, so indie rock, alt-rock, roots music, Americana and folk-rock are often used. For his lyrics and performance style he is most often compared to Dylan, Van Morrison, and John Hiatt.

Kris Delmhorst
Singer songwriter Kris Delmhorst has released seven albums on respected indie label Signature Sounds. Originally from Brooklyn, Delmhorst is active in the vibrant Boston folk scene and now lives in the hills of western Massachusetts with her husband, songwriter Jeffrey Foucault, with whom she occasionally performs as part of the band Redbird. When Kris released her seventh album Blood Test on Signature Sounds two years ago, it was her first of album of original music since 2008′s critically acclaimed album Shotgun Singer. An album of reimagined songs by proto-punk new wave band the Cars came out in 2011. A prolific writer and constant collaborator, Delmhorst continues to share her unique perspective in this new work. The album describes a moment of reckoning and centering in the songwriter’s life, and in society as a whole. In a collection of songs which move between triumph and heartbreak, restlessness and responsibility, Delmhorst acknowledges the weary work of an intentioned life – and the new American dream of presence and perspective in a frenetic time.

A multi-instrumentalist who has recorded vocals, fiddle, cello, keyboards, mandolin and guitar on over 50 albums from artists such as Peter Wolf, Mary Gauthier, Chris Smither and Lori McKenna, Kris usually focuses on guitar and vocals when performing. Her energizing shows include warmly humorous banter between poetic and often bittersweet songs, and have a compelling vitality.

On April 22, Kris will perform fronting a trio with Austin Nevins (Josh Ritter, Della Mae) on guitar and Annie Lynch on harmony vocals.
