Talent spotted by BBC Radio 2’s Bob Harris, Keating appeared live on the Bob Harris show in 2008 (and again in 2011), and has gone on to perform at leading national and international festivals including Take Root (Netherlands),  Glasgow Americana Festival (Scotland), the NJ Folk Festival, The Brooklyn Indie Music Fest, NXNE (Canada) and NEMO.  She has performed on the bill with John Hiatt, Dan Bern, Bon Iver and other great artists.

 Her last album, “Make Believing” (released in 2015) was championed by TELEGRAPH (UK) as (their first pick for) Best country music albums of 2015.  The TELEGRAPH raved, 

“Brooklyn-based singer-songwriter Annie Keating is building the reputation her talent deserves.”  

 She and her bandmates (Steve Mayone, Jason MercerChris Tarrow, Yuval Lion and Trina Hamlin) have just released the 7th album, “Trick Star.”

“A wise mix of Lucinda Williams songwriting, Gillian Welch guitar and a vocal all her own… a cross between Willie Nelson and John Prine and you don’t get any better than that.”  The Village Voice

Baby Gramps - World Famous Seattle Legend! - 8pm
315 Columbia St.
Brooklyn, NY 11231
Price: $10

Its been quite a while since I did a show with Baby Gramps. Last time was in Dumbo, time before that was in Red Hook over ten years ago. Since then Gramps has played on David Letterman; was recruited by Johnny Depp to play on Tom Waits ANTI records 'Rogues Gallery' compilation. and toured Australia, England and Ireland.

According to an article in Seattle Metropolitan Magazine, Baby Gramps is acknowledged as one of the top 50 most influential musicians in the last 100 years.

This past year Baby Gramps was asked to be part of three films. One is a documentary about the history of jugband music, another is an update of the academy award nominated film Streetwise that he performed some music for 30 years ago, and the third is 50 Feet of Film that includes a new original song about the homeless.

Baby Gramps toured Australia, England, and Ireland as part of the Rogues Gallery CD Concert Tour with Tim Robbins (actor), Marianne Faithful, Lou Reed, Martin Carthy, Suzanne Vega, Ralph Steadman, and many other internationally known performers. The Rogues Gallery CD, produced by Johnny Depp and Hal Willner in connection with The Pirates of the Caribbean film, landed Baby Gramps on the David Letterman Show accompanied by Tony Garnier, Bob Dylan’s band leader and bass player.

"Baby Gramps, an eccentric, seemingly very old (though nobody seems to knows how old) singer and steel-guitar player based in Seattle, with a voice like Popeye after smoking an entire tin of Prince Albert. His performances on “Rogue’s Gallery” (Anti), a two-disc set of sea chanteys produced by Hal Willner, are among the album’s best, and that’s saying a lot: among the other contributors are Sting, Lou Reed, Lucinda Williams, Bono, a gravel-voiced Bryan Ferry, a midnight-voiced Nick Cave, a twee Van Dyke Parks and Bill Frisell with a beautiful guitar track." New York Times.

For singers, songwriters and musicians who are already writing and performing songs by themselves and others. This class is for those pursuing a career as a performing artist, looking to improve their skill set as a writer, within a small knit group of fellow musicians.

"Being part of the Jan Bell's Songwriting Workshop truly helped me look at my approach to writing songs from a fresh perspective. It taught me new tactics for getting past mental and physical blocks in my writing process and provided me with a brand new arsenal of creative strategies for noticing things to write about. Though, perhaps the best part of the workshop was the atmosphere Jan created for the members of the class. It was a completely relaxed, fun, creative, and non-judgmental environment. It was as if someone turned on a new faucet in me that I didn't even know I had a handle for!" Rachel Lee Walsh.

LAST SHOW EVER AT THE RODEO! - 9:30pm
375 3rd Avenue
New York, NY 10016
Price: FREE

New York City's longest running honky tonk stops having live music July 31st. Another sign of the changing landscape for venue owner/operators due to unbelievable rent hikes and new neighbours that fail to appreciate the realm. Thanks to Jack Grace, I've seen so many brilliant bands here over the last ten years. The sound engineers and the wait staff and bartenders are all terrific, too. The Rodeo is not closing down, just no longer having live music is all I know. I've invited long time East Village musician, photographer and DJ Dina Regine to play the late set and close out the night. Her latest album 'Right On. Alright' is brilliant 70's style soul music.

'Much as a lot of New York clubs exploit musicians, there are other venues that actually support and nurture scenes: Barbes, with its global talent base; the Jalopy’s oldtime Americana roots crew; punk rock at ABC No Rio; jazz at Smalls. Count 68 Jay St. Bar in Dumbo on this short but crucial list. If Jan Bell (a poignant and potent Americana singer and tunesmith herself) has booked a band for one of the bar’s Wednesday and Saturday night shows, that’s a guarantee that the music will be good'.

Freddy's Bar and Backroom
Holiday tribute to Bob Dylan and Leonard Cohen - 8pm
18th st and 5th ave
Brooklyn, NY 11215

Hosted by John Pinamonti.

In the late ‘90s, a handful of creative regulars at the now-legendary Freddy’s Bar in Prospect Heights, Brooklyn put on a holiday show that became known as “A Leonard Cohen Christmas”.  Some were big fans of Leonard, some less so, but all agreed – “What a great idea!”.

Now, all these years later, Freddy’s has a new home, some of those regulars are still around, and Leonard Cohen himself will be playing Barclay’s Center on December 20th.  For those of you who may or may not know, the “old” Freddy’s was ground zero in the fight to keep the Stadium from being built, and the building it was in (on the corner of Dean Street and 6th Ave) was torn down and is now the back part of the stadium property (by where the stars enter!).


With all this in mind, it seems appropriate for the denizens of Freddy’s to put on some sort of show, and what we came up with is the Leonard Cohen & Bob Dylan Holiday Special.  We threw Bob in the mix, as he played the Center on 11/21, plus we just like the idea of his songs mixed in with Leonard’s.  It will cost you a lot less than the Barclays’ show (as in, it’s free!), and the drinks and food are cheaper and better.  So come on down and raise a holiday toast to the two septuagenarians and share in some holiday cheer.

Brooklyn, NY 11215
718-643-6510
Price: $30

A Benefit to Restore Red Hook by local people for local people

Join Rosanne Cash and a host of fabulous bands for a night of great music, a square dance and to support a very needy cause.

The Jalopy Theatre and Friends Present: A Benefit to Restore Red Hook, by local people for local people. The evening kicks off with a square dance, hosted by NYC Barn Dance. Roseanne Cash will headline the evening, and Jesse Lenat, John Pinamonti and the Brotherhood of the Whiskey Spitter Rebellion will play. Michael Buscemi will screen his new film on the bus that runs through Red Hook, called "B61." Emcee Jan Bell.

This show will benefit Restore Red Hook. Restore Red Hook aims to raise funds to help the small businesses of Red Hook, Brooklyn reopen their doors as soon as possible after the devastation of Hurricane Sandy. From the restaurants, bars, and vintage shops to the corner bodegas, these businesses define and serve our community. We need help from inside and outside Red Hook to help rebuild our neighborhood for business owners, residents, employees and everyone else who loves our little seaside town. Getting through this time is going to require a great deal of outside assistance. The damage to many of the businesses is severe, and few business owners have hope that fiscal help is on the way (FEMA primarily helps homeowners, and flood insurance is virtually unavailable in this neighborhood). The fiscal sponsor is the Fund for the City of New York, a longstanding New York institution. http://restoreredhook.org

Rosanne Cash, Johnny Cash's daughter, has recorded eleven No. 1 singles, blurring the genres of country, rock, roots, and pop. She has received one grammy and twelve grammy nominations, among other awards and accolades, including an honorary doctorate from Memphis College of Art. A prolific writer, she has authored Bodies of Water (Hyperion, 1996), Penelope Jane: A Fairy's Tale (Harper-Collins, 2006), edited the book Songs Without Rhyme (Hyperion, 2001), and recently penned her memoir Composed(Viking, 2010). Rosanne's prose and essays have appeared in the New York Times, The Oxford-American, New York Magazine, Newsweek, Rolling Stone, Martha Stewart Living and various other publications. Her last record album, The List, won the Americana Music award for Best Album of the year and was a critical and commercial success.

"Songs that hark back to the late 1960’s Van Morrison"
NEW YORK TIMES
“The roots offspring of Jackson Browne and Ricki Lee Jones"
BOSTON PHOENIX
“Jazz-infused songs reminiscent of Moondance-era Van Morrison.”
TIME OUT NEW YORK
 
After Jan Bell at 10pm Ana Egge whose latest album 'Bad Blood' was produced by Steve Earle.
Lucinda Williams once called her “a folk Nina Simone.” But Ana Egge is more country than that. Raised by hippies who grew wheat in North Dakota, the Brooklyn singer–songwriter crafts homespun hymns on her sixth disc to sing with your bare feet on the dashboard. “Bully of New York” recounts a sad late–night conversation between Egge and a park ranger whose hours broke up his marriage (best part: She met him while hitchhiking). Egge’s rootsy pedal–steel pop recalls singers like Shawn Colvin, but her sharply observed tales of the overlooked and underpaid feel utterly of the moment. - ROLLING STONE

Folk favorites of the past and present, Sundays from 4-5pm.

Like its host Bob Sherman himself, Woody's Children got its start at New York's eminent classical music station, WQXR, where he began as a typist and moved up to music director before ever going on the air. "I had already started a program and run it for a number of years, called Folk Music of the World, which I didn't host, but I programmed and scripted," Sherman recalls.

In the late 1960s, he discovered that the sought-after teenage demographic was more interested in anti-war protest songs than in Russian gypsy songs and decided to introduce a program featuring contemporary folk music. Thus, Woody's Children debuted in 1969 with Sherman as its host. "Oddly enough, despite my stiffness and weird-sounding voice, apparently I hit a nerve," he jokes. "It was an immediate success."

Robert Sherman by Hirschfeld

Named for a phrase coined by Pete Seeger to describe the singer-songwriters following in Woody Guthrie's footsteps, Woody's Children has helped launch the careers of Christine Lavin and Julie Gold, among others. Over the years the likes of Judy Collins, Odetta, Tom Paxton, Peter, Paul & Mary and Pete Seeger himself have performed live on the program, which has garnered a number of prestigious broadcasting awards for its unusual approach to music. "I try to involve intriguing patterns, and I have thematic concepts," Sherman explains. "There's always a thread, some kind of connection that leads one song to the next."

Price: $10
The name, for those of you who don't know, comes from the larger pre-existing art variety show called CHURCH. This venue does not allow it to be a full on CHURCH event because of it's intimate nature, so this is a smaller intimate version of the CHURCH idea. The Church idea and the Chapel Series idea is that this is borrowing the format from the religious ceremonies of the same name but instead of meditating on religion we are meditating on art. It's like Art Church.

w/ The Sweetback Sisters - 7pm
425 Lafayette Street
New York, NY 10003
Price: $15
The rollicking country swing of the Sweetback Sisters is as infectious as it is heartbreaking. Their charismatic charm harkens back to the golden era of both the silver screen cowgirl and the ersatz cowboy stars of local UHF TV kiddie shows. That whimsical exterior is wrapped around a core of deeply felt love for traditional country music styles and a palpable joy in playing and singing together. Like their pseudo-sister role models, the Davis Sisters, the Sweetback Sisters 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. The Sweetback line-up features the sugar sweet vocal pairing of Zara Bode and Emily Miller joined by an all-star cast of instrumentalists including: West Virginian triple threat Jesse Milnes; Stefan Amidon on drums; Philly's stringed slayer Ross Bellenoit on electric guitar, and Peter Bitenc on upright bass. http://www.thesweetbacksisters.com/
