ABOUT EILEN JEWELL

Eilen Jewell burst onto the Boston music scene with her 2005 debut, Boundary Country. Reaction to her music was swift, with many comparing her talents to those of Lucinda Williams, Gillian Welch and June Carter Cash. Jewell’s hushed style and intimate grasp of roots music have earned her rave reviews, both nationally and abroad. Her album, Sea of Tears was lauded as “album of the year” by critics, was featured on the New and Noteworthy home page on iTunes, and reached #9 on the Americana Radio Chart staying in the top 10 for 2 straight weeks. MOJO gave the album 4 stars and raved; “The comparison game can hardly get any muddier to suggest Lucinda Williams fronting Chris Isaak’s band, with both singer and accompanists at the top of their game.”

Eilen’s lastest release, Butcher Holler, is a tribute to Loretta Lynn.  She writes: “Butcher Holler is named for the little Kentucky town where Loretta Lynn was raised. In this tribute to the country star we pay homage to her humble roots and straightforward, hard-hitting performance style. All of the songs in this collection were written by Lynn herself and are a testament not only to her strength as a songwriter but to her personal strength as well. In the 1960s and 70s, Loretta Lynn dared to write songs about topics that were widely considered off-limits, especially for women. The fact that her words still hit a nerve today is proof of their timelessness. And so, a toast: to the woman with more banned songs than anyone can count; to that voice that reaches the very grain of the theater walls around her; to our national treasure. Gratitude is not enough, so I sing these songs for any who will listen.”

ABOUT THE SWEETBACK SISTERS

This young group of stellar Brooklyn-based musicians performs an array of traditional old-time & honky tonk rock music reminiscent of the 1940’s & 50’s. Complete with hot licks and sweet girl-on-girl harmonies, The Sweetback Sisters are sure to warm the heart of all you modern day cowboys and girls.  They sing country songs in close, surrogate-sister harmony and matching dresses. Their repertoire combines several of the Sisters’ passions — country music from before they were born and new interpretations of those traditions — to create a fresh take on what it means to be country. Their album Chicken Ain’t Chicken is a sincere ode to the classic styles that inspire the Sweetback Sisters, with an ample dose of their own personality and off-kilter sense of humor.

    Haven’t seen Eilen in concert yet, but have wanted to catch her act for some time. Love Memorial Hall for a venue. Much better than broken stools and the menu that hasn’t changed (or even reprinted) in 20 years at the other little concert venue on Center Street, in NoHo.
