The dreams and ambitions of women and girls can make holes in the sky.

Presenting work from her Sony Masterworks album of the same title, and celebrating her newest release For Love Of You, Downes marks the 200th birthday of Clara Schumann (born on this day in 1819!) with a genre-fluid tribute to influential female composers past, present, and future, featuring music by Schumann, Florence Price, Meredith Monk, Nina Simone, Paola Prestini, Joni Mitchell, and more. Joined by harpist Bridget Kibbey, vocalist Magos Herrera, and pianist Simone Dinnerstein, Lara brings the work of brilliant, trailblazing women alive on stage.

Low Lily - Clayton Opera House
September 14, 2019 - Clayton

Start with excellently matched vocals, add some world-class playing, sprinkle with raised-off-grid Americana and you get Low Lily. Flynn's deft flat picking on guitar and mandolin and Lissa's virtuosic fiddle-playing are grounded by Liz's percussive rhythm guitar playing, the sounds of which combine joyously in this stunning ensemble. With a vocal blend that has been dubbed "outstanding" and "meticulous," Low Lily's refreshing, cohesive sound comes naturally for musicians whose lives have been entwined on the road and onstage for almost two decades. Setting down roots in Brattleboro, Vermont, the band has crafted a signature sound they have shared with enthusiastic audiences throughout North America and Europe, garnering two #1 songs on international folk radio and two New England Music Award nominations. Chosen as Falcon Ridge Folk Festival's "Most Wanted Band" of 2016, Low Lily plays acoustic music that is deeply rooted i tradition yet sounds refreshingly contemporary. With their first full-album release, 10,000 Days Like These, Low Lily shares an intimate, no-tricks-involved, collection of songs that showcases their talents and proves them to be a formidable, ready-for-prim-...

created a 3 plus decade-spanning career built on his virtuosic playing, compositional fortitude and distinctive style.

Sister Sparrow & the Dirty Birds - Brooklyn Bowl
September 14, 2019 - Brooklyn

Known far and wide as the impossibly big voiced leader of acclaimed soul collective Sister Sparrow & The Dirty Birds, singer Arleigh Kincheloe has made an astonishing leap forward with Sister Sparrow's new LP, GOLD. Produced by Carter Matschullat (Chef'Special, Secret Weapons), the album sees Sister Sparrow taking the classic brass-fueled Dirty Birds sound and turning it into something altogether new: a soul-blasted contemporary pop sound both timeless yet utterly now. Recorded mere months after Kincheloe became a new mother, songs like the evocative first single, "Ghost," and the ebullient title track highlight Sister Sparrow's strikingly strong vocals while also showcasing her growing muscle as an individualistic, communicative songwriter. "It was uncharted waters for me in a lot of ways," she says. "It's a bit of a departure from what I've done before, it's me really seeking my own personal sound. Like motherhood, making an album is a really personal thing." For nearly a decade, Sister Sparrow & The Dirty Birds have been hailed for their explosive brand of modern soul, equally celebrated for their three studio albums and electrifying live performances.
