Lori McKenna is a mother of 5 and wife of 18 years who grew up in Stoughton, MA where she still lives today. For years she drove her kids to school in a minivan with 150,000 miles on it. It is fitting Lori entitled her Warner Bros. debut album Unglamorous.
Antje Duvekot solidified her reputation as one of Boston’s top singer songwriters with “Big Dream Boulevard,” her debut studio release and “the Near Demise of the Highwire Dancer” her follow-up CD.
The debut CD was produced by Seamus Egan, founder of the Irish super group, SOLAS. The project was released on acclaimed songwriter Ellis Paul’s label, Black Wolf Records and quickly attracted international attention for Antje.
The highly acclaimed husband-wife duo, Aubrey Atwater and Elwood Donnelly, present delightful programs of traditional American and Celtic folk songs, a capella pieces, oldtime gospel songs, dance tunes, and original works. Elwood and Aubrey blend gorgeous and unusual harmonies and play guitar, Appalachian mountain dulcimer, mandolin, tin whistle, harmonica, banjo, bones, spoons, limberjacks, and other surprises including Appalachian clog dancing, French Canadian footwork, and Tap.
