Headliners at The Avalon This Spring

The Avalon Theatre and Stoltz Listening Room, located at 40 East Dover Street in downtown historic Easton, has a diverse line-up scheduled for April. For more information, or to purchase tickets, call 410-822-7299.

Brooks Williams

Friday, April 6

Doors: 7:30 p.m. Show: 8 p.m.

Stoltz Listening Room. $25

“Stirring up soulful Americana, full-on blues and tasty rootsy grooves, he really rocks.” Roots

Ranked in the Top 100 Acoustic Guitarists, Brooks Williams is a mean finger-picker and a stunning slide guitarist. Plus, “he has a beautiful voice,” says AmericanaUK, “that you just melt into.”

Not one easy to pigeon-hole, Brooks Williams’ music is the love-child of country-blues and soulful Americana. His massive repertoire spans classic roots and blues,” Trouble In Mind,” “Backwater Blues” and “Mother Earth,” as well as compelling covers from the likes of Dave Alvin, Bessie Smith and Mose Allison. His own songs are thoroughly alive with clearly-drawn ironic characters, like Frank Delandry and Evel Knievel, and rich in blues pathos. Brooks Williams has worked stages worldwide for over 25 years, touring constantly in the U.S., United Kingdom and Europe. Don’t miss this chance to see such an immense talent in a great venue like the Stoltz.

David Bromberg Quintet

Sunday, April 8

Doors: 6:30 p.m. Show: 7 p.m.

Avalon Theatre. $45

“The reason man created stringed instruments.” Jerry Jeff Walker

Fans of great music will not want to miss The David Bromberg Quintet when they bring their exuberant live show to town. The legendary David Bromberg – a godfather of Americana, decorated multi-instrumentalist and singer-songwriter and gifted song interpreter – comes to the Avalon stage to celebrate the release of his new album, “The Blues, The Whole Blues and Nothing But The Blues.” David Bromberg is “an American music icon” (Dr. John), and counts Bob Dylan, George Harrison, Ringo Starr, Emmylou Harris, Jerry Garcia, Bonnie Raitt, Carly Simon, The Eagles, and so many more as collaborators, fans and friends. This must-see show is a rare opportunity to witness a master performing the blues with passion and grace in the intimacy of the historic Avalon Theatre.

Eric Taylor

Thursday, April 12

Doors: 7:30 p.m. Show: 8 p.m.

Stoltz Listening Room. $25

Eric Taylor is a sage musician, a lyrical genius and a master of the guitar. If you’re familiar with the intricate Texas singer/songwriter jigsaw puzzle, you probably already know a lot about Eric. If you’re not familiar with Eric by name, you’ve probably heard his songs performed by people such as Nanci Griffith and Lyle Lovett. He has created a multitude of fans and devotees that are legends themselves in the singer/songwriter realm, artists who have long considered Taylor to be a teacher and a lantern bearer whose time is long overdue.

Comedian Max Rosenblum

Friday, April 13

Doors: 7:30 p.m. Show: 8 p.m.

Stoltz Listening Room. $20

Max Rosenblum is a stand-up comedian and writer based out of Los Angeles whose comedy roots reach back to Washington, D.C. in late 2011, when a dislike for his job led him to seek comfort in finding any bar he could in which to perform comedy. Max has been entertaining audiences all over the country ever since at venues big and small with his self-deprecating and optimistically pessimistic outlook on life.

In addition to performing on the critically-acclaimed Los Angeles-based storytelling podcast RISK!, he’s performed at such comedy festivals as the Cleveland Comedy Festival and Baltimore’s Artscape Festival, and at such famous venues as the Kennedy Center (DC), Caroline’s on Broadway, Hollywood Laugh Factory, San Francisco Punchline, DC Improv, Hollywood’s Roxy Theatre and Arlington Drafthouse.
