Lula Wiles and Robt Sarazin Blake & The Letters


Friday, April 28th, 2017 - 7pm

Lula Wiles

"These young women [...] will be a huge force on the Americana music scene for many years to come. The chemistry they bring to the stage is a joy to behold." – No Depression

If you ask Lula Wiles about their self-titled debut album, they’ll be quick to tell you it was a long time coming. The album’s eleven original songs were written over the course of the preceding four years, tested and lived in on stages and in bedrooms and backyards in Maine and Boston, and reborn in November and December 2015 through the band’s collaboration with producer/ guitarist Adam Iredale-Gray and drummer Sean Trischka. Self-released on May 27, 2016, the album is Lula Wiles’ first creative statement, an exploration of their sound. The band is deeply rooted in traditional folk music, but equally deep is their devotion to modern songcraft. The songs span from heartbreak-drenched acoustic ballads to honky-tonk swagger to contemporary grit and back again, all anchored by rich vocal harmonies. Their lyrics are fiercely honest, littered with reinvented folk tropes and evocative images – a rainy field of daisies, a dusty bar lit by Christmas lights, an unmade bed. Acclaimed singer-songwriter Aoife O’Donovan calls the record “a stunning collection of self-penned songs about love, loss, and drinking – the perfect blend of modern and timeless.” The three band members swap instruments and frontwoman duties, with six songs penned and sung by fiddler/guitarist Ellie Buckland, four by fiddler/ guitarist Isa Burke, and one by bassist Mali Obomsawin. Onstage, the band gathers tightly around a single microphone for a spirited live show that resonates like a whiskey-slap to the heart.

Robt Sarazin Blake & The Letters


Robt Sarazin Blake’s new Double Album ‘Recitative’ was recorded in the Hudson Valley at The Building in Marlboro, NY (The original home of The Falcon)

Blake is backed by Marlboro’s own wrecking crew: Connor Kennedy, Lee Falco, Brandon Morrison & Will Bryant

‘I didn’t know I was searching for The Hudson Valley Sound until I stumbled inside it.  Lee, Connor, Brandon and Will climbed on stage after my gig at The Falcon and I immediately knew I was hearing the sound of my new record. Dylan and The Band started it. Van Morrison came searching for it.  Jimi Hendrix, John Sebastian, Paul Butterfield, Janis Joplin, Maria Muldaur and so many more made music in this valley where the drums, organ, horns and guitars all put the swirl around the rhymes.

It’s been 50 years but the sound lives on as a fundamental of American Music and the creators are still in the valley, splitting firewood and keeping an eye on the mailbox.  A new generation is working in the tradition and I was lucky to get pulled into the swirl.’
