Tonight: Triple Header at The Rockwood Music Hall

RockwoodTonight, I can recommend three shows at The Rockwood Music Hall.  These shows are spread through the evening, and there’s something here you’ll like no matter what your tastes.

 

First up, at 7pm, Mary Lee Kortes will present The Songs of Beulah Rowley at Rockwood Stage 2.  Mary Lee explains:

I was on the road in the UK, thinking about my next record, wanting it to be different somehow, to incorporate other kinds of writing.  What would that mean, I wondered, drifting off to sleep in my favorite London hotel suite (that would be my friend Lizzie’s sofabed). I woke up to find someone named “Beulah Rowley” in my head — a regionally famous 1930s midwestern singer/songwriter. I wrote a song by her on the spot, finished my tour, came home and wrote her biography. And then a bunch more songs, by her of course.

At 9:30pm, Carrie Rodriguez and Luke Jacobs will play the seated and intimate Rockwood Stage 3.  Carrie plays a variety of instruments, particularly, the fiddle, and her music is Americana.  She’s spent the past couple years touring with Luke Jacobs.  Jacobs is also multi-instrumentalist / singersongwriter from Minnesota.  Carrie and Luke don’t play NYC all that often, so take this opportunity to check them out.

Finally, at midnight over at the original stage of The Rockwood, Rich Hinman will play a set.  Rich plays guitar and pedal  steel and has played behind Sara Bareilles and Rosanne Cash, among others.  This is Rich’s last show before he moves to Los Angeles and will be a goodbye party with music.
