OUR NEXT NEW HAMPSHIRE SHOWS
March 21 JOHN EDDIE
On the roller coaster of his career so far, John Eddie has had enough big breaks, hard luck, new beginnings, false starts, serious adventure and big fun to inspire a boxed set’s worth of country songs. He’s had the sort of life – often hard-scrabble, occasionally charmed — that other artists only imagine, or have someone else write about for them. John has managed to document a lot of this on Who The Hell Is John Eddie?, his debut disc for Lost Highway, along with details of assorted dreams, wishes, romances, and regrets. He really has spent endless days and nights on the road, playing the “shit-hole bars” he so hilariously and accurately recalls. And he’s endured the heckling of alcohol-fueled patrons wanting to hear Skynyrd and Petty and demanding to know, Who The Hell Is John Eddie?” – johneddie.com
“John Eddie is a badass— Eddie writes like a cowboy poet, a rock ‘n’ roller and a country tunesmith all rolled into one. Part Steve Earl, part Guy Clark, part Springsteen, John Eddie is one hell of an artist, and if you didn’t already know him, you will soon.”

This show is SOLD OUT!

March 23 ENTER THE HAGGIS
Toronto roots rock band, Enter The Haggis, has proven itself to be a true grassroots success story, and never has this been more evident than with the group?s latest release, The Modest Revolution. Inspired entirely by the content of one Canadian newspaper, and funded entirely through the generous contributions of loyal fans, The Modest Revolution represents the latest step in the group?s exciting musical journey.

Seven albums and a decade plus on the road have seen Enter The Haggis evolve from wildly popular local band to established international touring act, with a sound that lies somewhere between the fiercely creative and contemporary soundscapes of Radiohead, and the heartfelt story telling and infectious grooves of The Band. Their formula for success has been a simple one: record great music, back it up with inspired live performances, and tour constantly. It?s this uncompromising commitment to their music and fans that has seen the band garner top ten charting positions on Billboard, Amazon, and iTunes; major television appearances such as A&E?s Breakfast with the Arts and Live with Regis and Kelly; and their very own PBS special.

Eclectic. Electric. Roots Rock Reinvented. (Listen)

NEW HAMPSHIRE NEW BOOKINGS
May 18 HOWIE DAY
The Maine native received his first Fender Stratocaster at age 13 and perfected his blend of effects pedals and guitar melodies by the time he finished high school. He was discovered at a concert for Ziggy Marley for which Day served as the opening act. Day self-produced and independently released his debut album Australia in 2000 and was subsequently asked to record a cover of The Beatles’ “Help” for the Sean Penn film I Am Sam. The buzz from his debut and from the film secured Day a major label deal with Epic Records who sent Day packing to London where he produced his sophomore set.

Day sat down in the studio with Martin “Youth” Glover, who produced the Verve’s Urban Hymns album, to craft pop-rock perfection. The disc, Stop All the World Now, was released in 2003 and after a slow up-hill climb, the album became a success off the heels of “She Says” and “Collide”. The latter was featured on episodes of Scrubs, One Tree Hill, and Grey’s Anatomy and eventually sold 1.5 million digital downloads. The album was certified Gold and Howie Day tour dates were scheduled to capitalize on the album’s success. The concert tour kept Day on the road touring for the better part of five years.

After taking some time off, Howie Day returned to the studio in 2008 and released his third album Sound the Alarm in 2009. The album featured the production of Martin Terefe and Mike Flynn to combined the styles of indie-rock darling Aimee Mann and power-pop band The Fray. The album featured the hit single “Be There” and Howie Day embarked on another national tour to promote the album. While the album was not as successful as its predecessor, Day was not deterred and returned to the studio to record a follow-up EP, Ceasefire, in 2011.

Howie Day’s extensive concert schedule has created a nation-wide fan-base. His songs, including “Collide”, captivated the hearts of romance seekers everywhere and made him a mainstay on Adult Contemporary stations. (Listen)

SEPT 13 JOHN MAYALL
As the elder statesman of British blues, it is John Mayall’s lot to be more renowned as a bandleader and mentor than as a performer in his own right. Throughout the ’60s, his band, the Bluesbreakers, acted as a finishing school for the leading British blues-rock musicians of the era. Guitarists Eric Clapton, Peter Green, and Mick Taylor joined his band in a remarkable succession in the mid-’60s, honing their chops with Mayall before going on to join Cream, Fleetwood Mac, and the Rolling Stones, respectively. John McVie and Mick Fleetwood, Jack Bruce, Aynsley Dunbar, Dick Heckstall-Smith, Andy Fraser (of Free), John Almond, and Jon Mark also played and recorded with Mayall for varying lengths of times in the ’60s.

October 1 BODEANS
“I’ve always thought of the BoDeans as a truly American band,” says Kurt Neumann, the founder, primary writer and front man of the veteran Milwaukee-based group. “We were blue-collar kids straight out of the heartland-how could we be anything else? ‘Roots rock’ was a label I fought when I was younger, but I came to realize that if by ‘roots’ you meant blues, rock, country and soul all slammed together into one sound, then I’d say yes-that is the sound of American-made music.” (Listen)

Songs you know:
“Closer To Free”
“Good Things”
“Fadeaway”
“Still The Night”
“she’s a Runaway”
