ABOUT NICOLE ATKINS

Three years after her debut album, Neptune City, Nicole Atkins returns with gripping ferocity on Mondo Amore. From the first track, “Vultures”, Atkins’ toe-tapping, foot-stomping, hip-swaying music moves through your bones. With years to perfect it, every note and beat seems crafted with intention and care, accentuating her equally deliberate words. The songs play like anthems, commanding you to sing along as her lyrics tell a long-awaited story.

Through the process of making the album, she broke up with her boyfriend, her band and Columbia Records, choosing to produce it on her own and eventually releasing it on Razor & Tie. “It was like the ending of life as you know it. It’s funny because most of the songs are about those three things at the same time, so in a lot of breakup records you want to point fingers, but I don’t think that this record is like that at all.”

Effortlessly blending rock, blues, country and soul, Atkins has delivered on Mondo Amore with a collection of songs that invites you into her world. Even the more somber songs are sung with a gritty earnestness that carries the energy of her more vibrant songs throughout the entire project.

ABOUT CHERYL WHEELER

If your idea of a folk singer/songwriter concert is a bunch of people clapping politely after songs, and then sitting quietly while the performer says things like “This next song is about …”, well, you’ve never seen a Cheryl Wheeler concert before. Cheryl’s concerts are more like what you would find at a comedy club than a folk concert. She will tell a story that has you rolling in the aisles, and then sing a song that leaves you wiping tears from your eyes. She will talk about some serious current event, and then sing a song that will have you howling with laughter. This is why she sells out two Iron Horse shows every year. www.cherylwheeler.com

PARENTS’ NIGHT OUT TICKET GIVEAWAY: The Jill and Julia Show at the Iron Horse

The Jill and Julia Show at the Iron Horse
Northampton, MA
Saturday, July 10th, 2010 @ 7pm

Hilltown Families and Iron Horse Entertainment Group have partnered up to offer a chance to win free tickets to see adult venues in Northampton, MA for a PARENTS’ NIGHT OUT!  You pay for the sitter, we’ll pay for the tickets!

This month we are pleased to offer a chance  to win a pairs of tickets to see The Jill and Julia Show.

Win the tickets and take your spouse, partner or good friend out for a night on the town. Deadline to enter to win is Wednesday, 07/07/10 @ 7pm (EST).  More details below.

ABOUT THE JILL AND JULIA SHOW

The Jill and Julia Show is a delightful, poignant yet wildly entertaining mash-up of music, comedy, improvisation and monologues. This one-of-a-kind performance revolves around embedding Julia’s stories into songs of Jill’s that share a common theme creating a sum greater than the individual parts. The debut at the world renowned TED conference in 2007 has grown to a monthly residency in and around Chicago and will be touring nationwide in 2010 and beyond.

Known for her four-year run on Saturday Night Live and her powerful solo shows, Julia Sweeney continues to carve out her own territory in entertainment, one that moves between the personal and the political, the controversial and the comical.

Jill Sobule’s work is at once deeply personal and socially conscious, seriously funny and derisively tragic. Over seven albums and a decade of recording, Jill has mused on topics such as the death penalty, anorexia, shoplifting, reproduction, the French resistance movement, adolescence, and the Christian right. The NY Times called her “…topical, funny and more than a little poignant …grown-up music for an adolescent age.”

From The Huffington Post: Jill Sobule and Julia Sweeney might not at first seem an ideal show-business team; the experiential divide between comics and musicians is sufficiently wide that you rarely find them even attempting to forge a bond. (That Dean Martin and Jerry Lewis remain the most successful such duo isn’t exactly inspirational.)

But when you give the matter a moment’s thought, you begin to see some common ground between the two performers: Sweeney, remember, glanced the Zeitgeist with her portrayal of a sexually ambiguous character named Pat; and Sobule scored a hit with her sexually ambiguous single, “I Kissed a Girl.”

More substantively, now both are forty-something women in an industry largely blind to anyone over thirty, and while each retains a certain girlishness–Sweeney’s breathy, often giggling line delivery, and Sobule’s bright, insouciant vocals–beneath the surface there’s nothing gamine about them.

HOW TO WIN

Your chance to win a pair of tickets to see The Jill and Julia Show at the Iron Horse on Saturday, July 10th at 7pm is as easy as 1-2-3 (4)!  To win simply:

  1. POST A COMMENT BELOW (one entry per household) and be sure to tell us your

  3. LIVE (TOWN/STATE) must include your town to be eligible.
  4. ACCURATE EMAIL (we never share your email address).

PARENTS’ NIGHT OUT TICKET GIVEAWAY: Celebrated Nashville Singer/Songwriter Beth Nielsen Chapman at the Iron Horse

Friday, June 11th, 2010 @ 7pm

Hilltown Families and Iron Horse Entertainment Group have partnered up to offer a chance to win free tickets to see adult venues in Northampton, MA for a PARENTS’ NIGHT OUT!  You pay for the sitter, we’ll pay for the tickets!

This month we are pleased to offer a chance for two folks to win a pairs of tickets to see celebrated Nashville singer/songwriter Beth Nielsen Chapman as she returns to the area with a powerful new album, Back To Love.

Win the tickets and take your spouse, partner or good friend out for a night on the town. Deadline to enter to win is Wednesday, 06/09/10 @ 7pm (EST).  More details below.

ABOUT BETH NIELSEN CHAPMAN

Longtime fans of Beth Nielsen Chapman will notice that the black & white portrait on the cover of her new CD, Back To Love, bears a striking resemblance to the artwork on her self-titled 1990 album. Happily, the similarity doesn’t end there. Over the course of 11 stunning new compositions, Back To Love brings the acclaimed, Nashville-based singer/songwriter full circle, back to the soul-deep songwriting style that made her famous and provided big hits for herself and covers by an impressive and eclectic group of artists including Elton John, Faith Hill, Bonnie Raitt, Willie Nelson, Trisha Yearwood, Neil Diamond, Patty Griffin and Emmylou Harris, to name but a few. And while the soaring melodies, bell-clear vocals and heart-penetrating lyrics are reassuringly in place, there’s a new depth to the singer and to the songs, reflecting every turn in the tragic (Beth lost her husband to cancer and is a survivor of both breast cancer and a brain tumor) and-triumphant road Nielsen Chapman has traveled.

For newcomers to the magic and the music of Beth Nielsen Chapman, Back To Love is a bright new chapter in her songbook of life’s revelations. Her musical journey has taken her in a number of directions during the past thirty years, but perhaps none so enjoyable as the contentment on Back To Love.

HOW TO WIN
