We're pleased to say, "They're Back" at The Packing House! 

From the album "Rise Up." www.belleofthefall.com www.facebook.com/belleofthefall.com www.instagram.com/belleofthefall

BELLE OF THE FALL continues to demonstrate a thoughtful approach to song writing and performance. Their unique sound, sweet harmonies, and musicianship differentiates these artists from many.

Cast of Characters:

Tracy Walton- 2014 and 2015 New England Music Award nominee Best Male Performer. An accomplished bassist and songwriter who has written for Alfred Books and taught at the National Guitar Workshop. Tracy is a Taylor guitar artist. 

Julia Autumn Ford- CT Music Award Nominee Best New Artist 2014 and Song of the Year 2015. Her debut solo album has gained her well deserved attention as a singer of rare talent. "It's almost freakish how good she sings. I watched her and it was hard to process that it was actually coming out of her mouth." Joe Michelini, River City Extension.

Weapons of choice: 

Julia - The obvious choice for lead singer in any situation, acoustic guitar, yukitar, occasional melodica. Tracy- Upright bass, vocals, drums when back lined as he is not a fan of carrying things. 

The Rise of Belle of the Fall:

In 2014 Tracy Walton produced Julia Autumn Ford's debut album at his studio On Deck Sound Studio. In essence the record is somewhat the birth of Belle of the Fall, as Tracy plays all of the instruments on the record and Julia sings. Later that year they would tour the East Coast together sharing bills playing separate solo sets, with Tracy sitting in on some of Julia's songs. 

Sometimes an idea seems to simple so it takes a while for it to come to fruition. Simply put, two is often better than one. With Belle of the Fall it was as simple as an agreement of "All in." The summer of 2015 was the right time for two forces to collide. 2016 finds the duo going strong with their debut album, “Earthbound”  released on April 5th. 

"Acoustic folk duo Belle Of The Fall has proven that musical soul mates do in fact exist.” Vents Magazine

SEASON & SERIES PASSES NOW AVAILABLE - CALL FOR DETAILS 518.791.9474

Special Note: EC-CHAP is pleased to announce the debut performance of singer/songwriter and 2010 CT State Troubadour Lara Herscovitch to The Packing House stage!  Lara will be joined by EC-CHAP Member and local singer/songwriter Curtis Brand.

Lara Herscovitch-2.jpeg

Lara Herscovitch is a modern American songwriter-poet-performer gem, creating masterful contemporary folk with blues, pop and jazz influences. Former Connecticut State Troubadour, she writes, sings and leads with authenticity, integrity, humor and heart, delivering performances that inspire, inform, uplift and entertain. Sound Waves Magazine described her music as “expertly written prose… songwriting at its best… good for your ears AND your soul.”

Delivered with a voice Performer Magazine called “clear and smooth like expensive liquor,” Acoustic Live in New York City added, “She possesses not only a huge reservoir of musical talent and a voice with a bell-like clarity, but a keen sense of global concern and a fierce intellect... It might seem too good to be true, but true it is.”

"We must move past indecision to action... now let us begin. Now let us re-dedicate ourselves to the long and bitter, but beautiful, struggle for a new world." -Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. This quote, from Dr. King's 'Beyond Vietnam' speech (April 4, 1967 at Riverside Church in New York City), inspired the song.

Her themes span a broad range, including stories of misfits and underdogs, connection and courage, love and loss, hardship and hope, resilience and transformation. As WNPR Public Radio host Colin McEnroe observed, "Lara reminds us that music can be heroic when it springs from a strong heart. Walt Whitman would recognize his own soul in her expansive American vision, and there really is no higher compliment I can pay an artist."

Filmed, Directed & Edited by Brennan Alexa www.brennan-alexa.website and Instagram @_brennanalexa_ Lyrics: Holy grail way over there Nothing here but empty canyon, open air On the ledge, at the edge someone tells me If I can take that step the path appears In the stillness, in my periphery Something calling,

The wisdom in Lara’s artistry comes from her decades of humanitarian work in the U.S., Latin America, Asia and Africa, in education, community development, environmental protection, and justice system reform. This breadth and depth of experience resonates throughout her music: as Mississippi’s Daily Journal summarized, “Singer-songwriter Lara Herscovitch doesn’t write songs just for the ears, but also for the heart and soul.”

Lara is from the Northeast U.S. and lives in Connecticut, where she served as Official State Troubadour. 

"With a voice clear and smooth like expensive liquor she stands above and beyond the pack" -Northeast Performer

Lara will be joined this evening by local singer/songwriter, Curtis Brand.


sketch.JPG

Curtis Brand's music starts with the words.   In the tradition of singer songwriters like Harry Chapin, Jim Croce, and Willie Nelson, Curtis playfully jabs the listener with the existential absurdity of our everyday life. He tells tales of the human condition--the lost souls, the wounded veteran, the let down lover--and blends them with delightful ditties and love songs in a performance which not only touches the sensibilities but also lifts the spirit.   

From Older than Dirt, a tongue in cheek celebration of the aging process which is the title song from his first album, to Dust on the Water, which memorializes the World Trade Center tragedy, Curtis' songs pull the listener across the full range of human emotions.  Whether performing solo in coffee shops and house concerts or joining with the On Call Band in full concert shows, the songs of Curtis Brand reach out and speak of the people around us.

Join us for an evening of original music with these outstanding musicians! This program is hosted by the "Eastern Connecticut Center for History, Art, and Performance" (EC-CHAP). Doors 7:00pm / Show 7:30pm. Tickets $18.00 in advance online / $22.00 at the door. Senior and Student pricing available. 20% Discount at Door for EC-CHAP Members.

EC-CHAP "Acoustic Artist Series": Jeff Przech with Ashlee Paraidis (Americana)

TICKETS $12.00 IN ADVANCE (ONLINE) / $15.00 AT THE DOOR

IMG_6102.JPG

A native of Hartford, Connecticut, now calling Unionville, CT home, Jeff Przech (pronounced 'Presh') released his debut record "Sounds Like Fresh" in 2015. Called 'as Americana as they come' by one reviewer, Przech's music offers a different geographical take on the genre while still maintaining the characteristics of modern Americana music.

Przech, despite hailing from the Northeast, offers a very authentic take on the Americana
sound with a distinct lack of pretense. Though 2015 was his debut as an original artist, Przech spent over a decade playing in the Connecticut cover band scene before deciding to devote his full attention and efforts to his own songs. Przech favors the narrative style of lyricism shown by modern artists like Jason Isbell as well as legendary artists like Kris Kristofferson, who Przech cites as his biggest influence.

Przech's newest record, "Jeff Przech & The Outfit," has more of a full band sound than his debut, heavy on Telecasters and a vintage vibe achieved by recording the record live in the studio. The songs on the Outfit record show an evolution and growth while still maintaining the narrative quality. "Jeff Przech & The Outfit" is due in early 2018. Przech has also started work on another project, "The Red Door Sessions," that will be available through his website later in 2018. 

Jeff will be joined by special guest Ashlee Paraidis.

Join us for an evening of outstanding original music with this talented musician! This program is hosted by the "Eastern Connecticut Center for History, Art, and Performance" (EC-CHAP). Doors 7:00pm / Show 7:30pm. Soft drinks and snacks available. We are pleased to offer our exclusive "BYOB&F" model - Bring Your Own Beverage & Food (Wine & Beer Only - I.D.

More about Kate Callahan:

Kate writes mainly from inspiration, giving her songs spiritual, social, and emotional weight. "Kate Callahan has garnered an appreciative audience with her easygoing vibe and inspirational, at times mystical lyrics" (The Boston Globe).
“When something feels soulful to me, I sing it or say it or write it down,” she says. WNPR host Colin McEnroe praised a performance of Kate’s saying, “Kate Callahan is the only performer I’ve ever seen who occasionally seems to be channeling something vaster and far more ancient than herself, something more easily understood by Emerson than by any modern person.”

“I’ve come to understand,” Kate says, “that my voice can help me and others experience the mystery of life.” She adds, “I believe all voices hold that power. My voice is far from perfect, but I’ve persevered to use it and I
think audiences can sense that.”

Kate’s stage credits include appearances at the Falcon Ridge Folk Festival Emerging Artists Showcase, the New Haven Festival of Arts and Ideas, and the CT Folk Festival. She was a finalist in the South Florida Folk Festival Songwriting Competition 2014. In 2015 she studied vocal improvisation and Circlesongs with Bobby McFerrin and his incredible staff. She has opened shows for folk legends Judy Collins and Noel Paul Stookey (Peter, Paul, and Mary), troubadours Aztec Two-Step, John Gorka, Mustard’s Retreat, and the late Bill
Morrissey. She has also shared stages with folk-rock artists Rachael Sage and Regina Spektor. Stookey calls Callahan "real" and says her lyrics are "Zen-like."

Her first full-length studio album, "Anahata: Wake Up Your Heart", was nominated for "Best Americana Album" in RI's Motif Music Awards alongside a nomination for "Best Female Americana Vocalist".

In 2015, she was selected to be an Official Showcase Artist in Folk Alliance International's SERFA Music Conference. October 2016 marked the release of her 2nd studio album, "Samadhi: Home Is Where You Are".

Acoustic Artist Series: Alex Smith (Adirondack Folk)

ACOUSTIC ARTIST SERIES: ALEX SMITH (FOLK)

TICKETS $12.00 IN ADVANCE (ONLINE) / $15.00 AT THE DOOR

Alex Smith grew up in Long Lake, in the heart of New York's Adirondack Park, and his music strives first and foremost to echo the people of that area. He builds songs from a blend of traditional folk harmony and strikingly modern lyrics, confronting today's most pressing issues with grace while paying homage to the masters who came before him.

In the fall of 2012, at the close of his first extensive summer tour, Smith signed with acclaimed folk label Wepecket Island Records. He has since toured nationally with his band The Mountain Sound, been featured on Emmy-Award winning documentary “Songs To Keep” alongside Pete Seeger, Peter Yarrow, and Dan Berggren, and received extensive radio play nationwide.

When he's not on the road, Smith lives in the southern- Adirondack town of North Creek, N.Y. His first studio album, Hamilton County, was released in June 2014 and joins Live with Dylan Rice and Sawdust in his rapidly-growing discography. Close To Home, Smith’s next project, is slated for release in the summer of 2015. Website

This concert is hosted by the "Eastern Connecticut Center for History, Art, and Performance" (EC-CHAP). Doors 7:00pm / Show 7:30pm. Soft drinks and snacks available. "BYOB&F" - Bring Your Own Beverage & Food (Wine & Beer Only - I.D. Required).

More about this artist:

Smith's mother is a historian and his father is a writer and boat builder. Their influence is evident in his attention to detail: each of Smith's characters, though fictional, lives and breathes a balance between beauty and imperfection. His stories draw on the triumphs and hardships of friends, relatives, and neighbors near and far.

Smith fine-tuned his ability to observe and capture human nature while earning his Bachelor of Arts degree from St. Lawrence University, where he majored in English with a focus on fiction writing. Taking cues from legendary Adirondack folk musicians Dan Berggren and Christopher Shaw, he works tirelessly to carry the music of northern New York to new audiences. Smith has had the privilege of sharing the stage with Berggren and Shaw numerous times, and is quick to acknowledge the value of their feedback and support.

What folks are saying...

"Alex is a wonderful poetic writer who captures words full of meaning, matching them with creative music that creeps quietly into the past at the same time as dancing with the present and sneaking a peek at the future." - Bob Everhart- Country Music News International

"Alex is not to be missed as an up-and-coming young singer songwriter and performer." - Ed Commons, Red Barn Radio (Lexington, KY)

"Alex Smith's songs blend the best of down-to-earth, authentic stories with an honest style and performance that engages from start to finish. See him soon- Alex Smith is the real thing!" - Chuck Honnet, Nine Athens Music (Boston, MA)

"These songs of Alex Smith stretch the expectation of what fresh, new music can say about ancient hills, the communities they hold, and their stories." - Dan Berggren, Adirondack Folk Legend

"When Alex sings traditional folk songs from his region, he energizes them with his own voice, arrangements and charisma. I sought him out to perform in the Emmy award-winning documentary Songs to Keep: Treasures of an Adirondack Folk Collector, and it's a real pleasure working with him." - Paul Larson, Producer, Mountain Lakes PBS

BELLE OF THE FALL

ACOUSTIC ARTIST SERIES: INDIE / FOLK

TICKETS $12.00 IN ADVANCE (ONLINE) / $15.00 AT THE DOOR

[SPECIAL NOTE: I saw a video clip of Belle of the Fall on Facebook about a year ago. The original song being played, "Don't Give Up On Me", (written by Julia Autumn Ford) touched me... This simple yet emotional arrangement and powerful lyrics were fixed in my head for days. The musical duo met with me and we scheduled their debut appearance at The Packing House last November 2015 - our very first concert. Belle of the Fall has "the magic", and will always have a special place at our venue. TB]

 

Cast of Characters:

Tracy Walton- 2014 and 2015 New England Music Award nominee Best Male Performer. An accomplished bassist and songwriter who has written for Alfred Books and taught at the National Guitar Workshop. Tracy is a Taylor guitar artist. 

Julia Autumn Ford- CT Music Award Nominee Best New Artist 2014 and Song of the Year 2015. Her debut solo album has gained her well deserved attention as a singer of rare talent. "It's almost freakish how good she sings. I watched her and it was hard to process that it was actually coming out of her mouth." Joe Michelini, River City Extension.

Weapons of choice: 

Julia - The obvious choice for lead singer in any situation, acoustic guitar, yukitar, occasional melodica. Tracy- Upright bass, vocals, drums when back lined as he is not a fan of carrying things. 

The Rise of Belle of the Fall:

In 2014 Tracy Walton produced Julia Autumn Ford's debut album at his studio On Deck Sound Studio. In essence the record is somewhat the birth of Belle of the Fall, as Tracy plays all of the instruments on the record and Julia sings. Later that year they would tour the East Coast together sharing bills playing separate solo sets, with Tracy sitting in on some of Julia's songs. 

Sometimes an idea seems to simple so it takes a while for it to come to fruition. Simply put, two is often better than one. With Belle of the Fall it was as simple as an agreement of "All in." The summer of 2015 was the right time for two forces to collide. 2016 finds the duo going strong with their debut album, “Earthbound”  released on April 5th. 

"Acoustic folk duo Belle Of The Fall has proven that musical soul mates do in fact exist.” Vents Magazine

Join us for an evening of sweet harmonies with Belle of the Fall in our intimate historic setting. This concert is a part of The Packing House Acoustic Artist Series hosted by the Eastern Connecticut Center for History, Art, and Performance (EC-CHAP).

WNPR host Colin McEnroe praised a recent performance, saying, “Kate Callahan is the only performer I’ve ever seen who occasionally seems to be channeling something vaster and far more ancient than herself, something more easily understood by Emerson than by any modern person.”

Kate is a natural performer. Her stage credits include appearances at the Falcon Ridge Folk Festival Emerging Artists Showcase, the New Haven Festival of Arts and Ideas, and the CT Folk Festival. She was a finalist in the South Florida Folk Festival Songwriting Competition 2014. In 2015 she studied vocal improvisation and Circlesongs with Bobby McFerrin and his incredible staff.

Callahan says she writes songs that “become conduits between heaven and earth.” Her single Swing Low quotes the well-known African-American spiritual, surrounding its anthem with three short windows into climactic experiences of life, sex and death.

Swing Low was produced by Jim Chapdelaine, a Grammy nominated and Emmy award-winning producer. The song features Callahan on vocals and acoustic guitar, Chapdelaine on electric guitar, drummer Lorne Entress (Lori McKenna, Catie Curtis, Mark Erelli), and bassist Paul Kochanski (Lori McKenna, The Shinolas).

LIBBY JOHNSON with Rachel Zamstein

LIBBY JOHNSON with Rachel Zamstein

ACOUSTIC ARTIST SERIES: FOLK / AMERICANA

TICKETS $15.00 IN ADVANCE (ONLINE) / $20.00 AT THE DOOR

Artist, Libby Johnson, a familiar name as founding member of indie folk outfit “22 Brides”, is a singer songwriter whose folk/Americana roots are showcased in impeccable tunefulness, gorgeous melodies and a moving live presentation.

To quote “No Depression” magazine, "The hooks are unassailable, the singing and playing are felt, the arrangements an autumnal cross between Lucinda-bred Americana and kudzu-style indie rock.”

Johnson’s solo discography include Annabella (2006) and Perfect View (2010). Mike Joyce, “Washington Post” writes, “On Annabella Johnson quickly reveals her chief strengths: a hazy soprano that takes on a soulful edge when it counts, as evidenced by the album's title track; an engaging way with words”.

After a preview of Annabella, writer-director Bart Freundlich decided to use four of her songs in his film Trust the Man, starring David Duchovny, Billy Crudup, Julianne Moore and Maggie Gyllenhaal. He said that he re-edited scenes around her songs. Johnson also wrote a new song, "Indelible Mark", which plays over the film's end credits. Johnson’s film credits also include work with The Discovery Channel, MTV, Oxygen, Smallville, The Riches, and many more.

In his review of Perfect View, Mark Tucker, “Folk & Acoustic Music Exchange” (FAME) writes, “This is one beautiful CD.” Comparing Johnson as “a cross of Mary Fahl, Bonnie Raitt, and Janis Ian, a quietly engrossing woman crafting songs delicate and enfolding, works grounded in the everyday but gently transcendent… Libby Johnson feels everything she writes, plays, and sings, feels it genuinely, no exaggerations, no playing to the times and masses, not a shred of compromise.”


Joining Libby will be Rachel Zamstein, SESAC Recording Artist featured on "America's Got Talent" Season 6, is a skilled and diverse songwriter and multi-instrumentalist. 

Growing up in a musical family, Rachel started studying music at age 6. As a performer, her voice shines with crisp clarity and top rate technical skills.

Rachel co-produced and wrote every song on first Album, Bouquet, and was nominated for two Asbury Park Music Awards - Best Female Solo and Best Female Vocal. She performed with such artists as family member, Lew Soloff (of Blood Sweat and Tears),  Martha Wainwright, Ingrid Michaelson, Val Emmich, A Great Big World, and others.

This concert is a part of The Packing House Acoustic Artist Series supported by the Friends of The Mill Works. Cabaret and theater seating available. Snacks and soft drinks available.
