Ellis Paul, Flynn opens

Ellis Paul is one of the leading voices in American songwriting. He was a principle leader in the wave of singer/songwriters that emerged from the Boston folk scene, creating a movement that revitalized the national acoustic circuit with an urban, literate, folk pop style that helped renew interest in the genre in the 1990's. His charismatic, personally authentic performance style has influenced a generation of artists away from the artifice of pop, and closer towards the realness of folk.

Kurt Elling and Richard Galliano

Date: 
Monday, November 25, 2013 - 6:00pm

Vocalist Kurt Elling and French accordionist Richard Galliano transport us from the New York vista of the Allen Room to the cafes of Paris and the plazas of Buenos Aires.  Don't miss this heartfelt collaboration exploring the art of the ballad.  We'll hear classics like Nicht Wandle, Mein Licht, an arrangement of the Beatles' Norwegian Wood, and La Vie en Rose. Wendell Pierce hosts.

Marshall Crenshaw

A quote from Trouser Press sums up Marshall Crenshaw’s early career: “Although he was seen as a latter-day Buddy Holly at the outset, he soon proved too talented and original to be anyone but himself.” All Music Guide captured Crenshaw’s vibe perfectly: “He writes songs that are melodic, hooky and emotionally true, and he sings and plays them with an honesty and force that still finds room for humor without venom.”

Heather Maloney

“I prefer to start writing like I’m writing about somebody else, and maybe it turns out to be autobiographical,” she says. “Sometimes it even happens long after I’ve written the song and I’m performing it live, and I suddenly feel naked, like, ‘Whoa, this is really about me, isn’t it?’ It’s just that I’m in a room full of people when I realize it.”
