Mary Courtney grew up in a musical family in the parish of Castlegregory, near the sea in County Kerry, a likely beginning for this remarkable singer and guitarist.

Courtney has used her music to spread Irish culture and to educate her audience about the struggles of the Irish people. From rock 'n' roll to the ethereal strains of some ancient Celtic bard, Mary can sing anything, and sing it unforgettably.

Leigh Nash - The Listening Room at 443 Cafe & Lounge
September 20, 2019 - Syracuse,

More than two decades into her career, singer-songwriter Leigh Nash shines a light on her Texas roots with The State I'm In, a solo album that plants its feet on both sides of the border. Nash was raised in the Texas Hill Country, where the radio stations played country music and the small towns rang with mariachi bands. A shy kid, she built up her confidence by learning how to sing. Nash began by impersonating the artists she heard on the FM dial — with particular emphasis on Tanya Tucker and Patsy Cline — before graduating to her own gigs at the age of 13, when she began singing with a country band during a series of weekly shows in New Braunfels. Within a few years, she'd also joined a band called Sixpence None the Richer, which ultimately introduced the pop world to her signature, sparkling vocal and led a successful run that included Top 5 hits like "Kiss Me" and "There She Goes."

All Ages From playing himself in the HBO Series Treme, to barbecuing outside his bar, Kermit's Treme Mother-in-Law Lounge, to sitting in with Jon Batiste and Stay Human on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert, the trumpeter/vocalist keeps himself busy when he isn't on stage doing what he does best—entertaining and sharing his love of life with the world. Ruffins continues making his imprint on the world with wider exposure including appearances on Bravo's Top Chef and on the soundtrack to Disney's Jungle Book with Bill Murray and Christopher Walken. He personifies the laid-back vibe of New Orleans. But he did not come by his gifts easily. Ruffins did his homework and developed his stage persona and musical act by studying artists who came before him. He watched videos of Louis Armstrong and Cab Calloway until the tape wore out, cut his teeth busking the streets of the French Quarter, and apprenticed on stages with local legends "Uncle" Lionel Batiste and Danny Barker.

If you answered "e," then you're on to the ever-changing musical palette and all-inclusive goals of LETTUCE's sixth studio album, Elevate, and its ongoing re-interpretation of the band's name as "Let Us." In their earliest days as students, they would roam the cities of the Northeast, and implore others to "Let Us play." Starting with their 2002 debut album, the phrase has been affixed to their first four albums, as in (Let Us) Outta Here (2002), (Let Us) Rage! (2008), (Let Us) Fly! (2012) and (Let Us) Crush (2015).

Kosher Style' Album Launch with Michael Winograd & The Honorable Mentshn - Littlefield
September 22, 2019 - Brooklyn

Winograd is not a dabbler. He isn't an aspiring 12-tone composer who can play some klezmer. He isn't a punk-rocker looking for a new angle on approaching his songwriting. He IS a klezmer. He knows klezmer. He fucking blows away the room at klezmer. The level of his virtuosity, deep knowledge, and deep emotion in his playing doesn't ask, it demands an equal space for klezmer at the table of other so-called "folk" styles of music, such as bluegrass, zydeco, ranchera, or the blues." - Geoff Berner, "Kosher Style" Liner Notes
