Cuddle Magic is a modern sounding band from Brooklyn that is a mix between Snarky Puppy, Depeche Mode and Lou Reed.
Richard Shindell has emerged as one of the folk circuit’s most quietly lucid songwriters, with a compassionate intelligence that gleams through his songs.
Emma Myers is a 17-year-old local singer, songwriter and guitarist who recently completed her first studio EP.
Stand-Up Comedy with Comedian Katherine Jessup and Friends.
The Lonely Heartstring Band, according to Jimmy Lauderdale, “are musicians of dynamic imagination and massive musical talent. However, the music on their album feels as comfortable as a pair of long-worn leather slippers. A fascinating debut.”
The Weight Band appears with a tribute to the music of The Band while keeping the spirit and the music alive that helped define an era.
The Suitcase Junket is a maelstrom of original rock anthems, mountain ballads, blues manifestos, and dance hall festivity, all played on instruments built of broken bottles, twisted forks, dried bones, gas cans, shoes, saw blades, a toy keyboard and an overhead-compartment’s worth of luggage.
Micky Dolenz – The Voice of The Monkees – Playing all of The Monkees greatest hits. “Last Train To Clarksville,” “I’m A Believer,” “Daydream Believer” and all the hits will be played by a full band with the charming and comical Micky Dolenz at the helm, relating the classic stories of a band that shook the world.
Free Range, a straight ahead rock and roll band from Delaware, will have its CD Release party at the theatre.
Frances Luke Accord, for fans of Simon & Garfunkel.
Mipso, a band where classic folk-rock and modern alt-country sounds mingle easily with Appalachian tradition. Mipso is hailed as “hewing surprisingly close to gospel and folk while still sounding modern and secular.”
The Count Basie Orchestra, the most requested big band in music history.
The Laura Baron Trio and their tribute to Carol King, “A Carol King Inspired Evening.”
Willy Porter and Trace Bundy. “Willy Porter is an acoustic picker with the Olympian speed of Leo Kottke bolstered by rootsy vocals and twisting, offbeat lyrics that evoked John Hiat.“ It was easy to see why Bundy plays bigger venues on each tour. In his hands, the acoustic guitar is an imagination station and there was no telling where he is going take the audience at any given turn. Thrilling stuff.”
Pepper & Sassafras bring guitar, flute and accordion together in a musical meld that befits their name but is also a “deft commentary…a call to be ornery but sympathetic – cautionary but optimistic.”
Livingston Taylor returns for a special night of music.
Skribe brings its down-to-earth, no-frills garage folk outfit to town.
Stand-Up Comedy returns with Krish Mohan. Krish is a socially conscious Indian stand-up comedian and writer who focuses on idea-based stand-up that tackles race, religion, immigration, relationships, political and social issues with a sharp sense of humor.
Rachael Sage with special guests Nalani & Sarina
Alejandro Escovedo, the renowned songwriter, singer and true believer returns. His new album, “Burn Something Beautiful,” is a new work that’s at once a celebration of the rock-and-roll life, a contemplation on mortality and the healing power of love.
The Brother Brothers. Twin brothers Adam and David Moss offer rich harmonies and thoughtful songs accompanied by guitar, cello, violin and banjo (along with a healthy dose of humor).
Irish singer Danny Burns, whose influences not only come from his traditional upbringing, but also from legendary singer/songwriters John Martyn, Van Morrison and Richard Thompson appears. He’s also recorded and performed with legendary New Orleans musicians George Porter, Jr. (The Meters) and Mean Willie Green (Neville Brothers Band, Bob Dylan).
Long time rocker and singer Shannon McNally comes to town.
Miss Tess and the Talkbacks, rooted in swinging blues, throwback country and rockabilly music from Brooklyn, New York takes the stage. Front and center is soulful songwriter and skilled guitarist, Miss Tess, with a voice that’s “alternately seductive and sexy and is a pure joy to listen to” (Pop Matters).
Delta Rae comes to Easton for a very special visit. The North Carolina sextet is among the most recent entrants in the epic-folk genre, which is getting crowded in the wake of Arcade Fire’s and Mumford and Sons’ unlikely commercial breakthroughs. It’s a breathless brand of pop, where bombast is the new black and “We Are the World” could break out at any moment.
