Kami Lyle Sit-A-While featuring Bonnie Hayes & Kimon Kirk

Saturday, May 3rd, 2014 7:30 pm
General admission $22, Preferred Seating $30
BUY TICKETS HERE Presenting the Kami Lyle Sit-A-While…real songs, real writers, fake fireplace. Spring is finally here and Cape Cod’s own multi-talented singer-songwriter, Kami Lyle, is bringing two rockin singer songwriters to The Wellfleet Preservation Hall On Saturday May 3rd, 2014, with Bonnie Hayes who helped put Bonnie Raitt back on the map with her Grammy winning album “Nick of Time’ and the darling Kimon Kirk of “Session Americana” a local folk-roots super group that has been reviewed by the Boston Globe, "Their sound lives on the edge of exploration, where the freewheeling crackle of a great jam session meets the lean groove of classic country music. The result is rock-solid, rippling with surprise, and delivered by some of the best acoustic musicians in town.” - Scott Alarik, Boston Globe Bonnie Hayes, originally from San Francisco, recently moved to Boston to accept the first female song writing department chair at Berklee School of Music. The songs of Bonnie Hayes have always been extraordinary, from Shelly's Boyfriend, the post-punk good girl/bad boy anthem that put her on the map, to the authentic passion of Have a Heart and Love Letter, which restored Bonnie Raitt to superstardom with the multi-platinum, multi-Grammy-winning record, Nick of Time. Writing for artists as diverse as Robert Cray, Adam Ant, Cher, David Crosby, Bette Midler, and Booker T and the MG's, Hayes has become known for songs that combine the user-friendly hooks of pop songs with literate, quirky lyrics and a musical tendency to do the unexpected. She's also produced about 35 independent records, the most recent being the new record by California blues artist Tommy Castro, The Devil You Know.   ‘Have a Heart’ has one of the most complex set of lyrics and it’s musically sophisticated at the same time. That combination of vulnerability and feistiness in those lyrics suits both Bonnie and I,”Bonnie Raitt says. Kimon Kirk has played the bass and provided harmony vocals for such artists as Aimee Mann, Grant-Lee Phillips, Amy Correia, Sarah Borges, and Ramona Silver, and was a founding member of Session Americana, winners of multiple Boston Music Awards. Recent bass-playing engagements have also included stints with Melissa Ferrick, Will Dailey, Lori McKenna, Gaby Moreno, and Mike Viola. He has recorded two solo albums, 2011′s full-length Songs For Society and 2009′s EP Eye On You. He produced five releases in 2013: Steve Shook’s Dignify, Kerry Schneider’s Detour, Tom McBride’s Morning in Glen Burnie, David Champagne’s Agnostic Gospel and Ben Keyes’s The Last Laugh.

Stephen Russell & Friends in Concert - The Story So Far

Sunday, May 18th, 2014 7:30 pm
A Birthday Celebration
With Rick Arnoldi (guitar and vocals), Eleanor Lincoln (viola and vocals), John Owens (bass), Jim Rohrer (mandolin and vocals) and Special Guest. Local actor Stephen Russell returns to his musical roots with an evening of old favorites and some new originals. Primarily a singer/songwriter, his influences are as all over the map as his sense of humor. You’ll hear traces of bossa nova, trad. folk, Western swing, Buffalo Springfield, Richard Thompson, Shakespeare and 19th century parlor songs in his writing. Stephen performed for many years with the Narrow Land String Band, while also pursuing a solo career that eventually led nowhere but included very pleasant stops along the way, sharing stages with the likes of Leo Kottke, Jesse Winchester, Dave Van Ronk, Trapezoid and others he can’t quite remember at the moment. On this night, he is incredibly fortunate to be sharing the stage with his talented compatriot of many years, Rick Arnoldi, as well as more recent but equally talented new friends Eleanor Lincoln, John Owens and mandolin virtuosos Jim Rohrer. A splendid time is guaranteed for all. And there may even be cake...

Local Lens Series: The Refuge Media Project

Saturday, June 14th, 2014 7:30 pm
$10 - Followed by discussion with filmmaker Ben Achtenberg
“More than one million refugees have come to the US, fleeing torture and political violence,” begins REFUGE...CARING FOR SURVIVORS OF TORTURE, an outstanding new documentary from the Refuge Media Project. The vast numbers are staggering, but what makes a greater impression in this stand-out documentary are the small, individual stories from survivors and those who offer them care and support as they resettle in the US. They come here from all parts of the world — some legally, some undocumented, some with families and some very much alone. They live in major American cities and in small towns. Some survivors bear visible scars, but many more have been wounded in ways that remain hidden. Advocates for torture survivors, dedicated healthcare and social service professionals, and hundreds of citizen volunteers have united to create programs throughout the country that provide care and support to survivors who have come here to make new lives. Based on interviews with dozens of survivors, and with the professionals and volunteers who are helping them to heal, this film is a tribute to their work, and a call to action. This wonderful film offers a unique perspective into the world of torture survivors, their experiences and reservations opening up, and into the world of the care-givers, as they approach the formidable task of helping them recover their dignity and life. Filmmaker Ben Achtenberg of the Refuge Media Project will be present to discuss the film. Please visit www.refugemediaproject.org for more information.
