RR&R welcomes Patrick Fitzsimmons!!
Sunday, December 16, 2018

Singer/Songwriter Patrick Fitzsimmons writes songs that have that rare combination of strong lyrics and strong melody.

Patrick served his professional music tenure in the late 90s as a member of From Good Homes, a rock band out of New Jersey signed to RCA Records. When the band broke up in 1999, Patrick moved to Burlington, Vermont and embarked on a solo career. He has been touring the northeast ever since, drawing enthusiastically attentive crowds wherever he plays.

A skilled vocalist, he also plays banjo, ukulele and percussion to augment acoustic guitar and voice.

His latest CD "Bird Tree" just out, features clever songs and catchy tunes along with local voices and instrumentalists.

RR&R welcomes Scott Wolfson and Other Heroes!!
Sunday, January 20, 2019

Scott Wolfson and Other Heroes have been lighting up stages with their high-energy brand of multifaceted Americana music since 2011. Seamlessly welding folk, blues, country, Broadway, and rock’n’roll into a smart, rootsy, compelling sound, Scott and the band have ridden that sound to two big albums and recognition on festival stages and in listening rooms throughout the Northeast.

With their infectious love of music, lyrical imagery, and Scott’s unconquerable voice soaring above the rich counterpoint laid down by
Kirk, Matt, Mike, Chris, and Skyler, Scott Wolfson and Other Heroes set toes tapping and imaginations humming everywhere they go.

“They’ve kicked it up another notch…. The band continues to mature and even the quieter songs carry a bit more drama.
As the songs continue to spill out of Scott Wolfson’s fertile imagination, they keep getting more infectious and intriguing.”

– Richard Cuccaro, Acoustic Live in NYC

No Depression’s Lee Zimmerman writes, they “...will not only defy the norm, but all expectations as well.”

Abbie Gardner is a fiery dobro player with an infectious smile. Whether performing solo or with Americana darlings Red Molly, her acclaimed tales of love and loss, both gritty and sweet, are propelled by her impeccable slide guitar chops. Her live show is truly unique - as both an award winning songwriter and interpreter of folk styles, a captivating vocalist, and a world class lap style dobro player, she has an unmistakable sound all her own. Her latest CD, Wishes on a Neon Sign was released in January 2018, and features twelve original songs, including a co-write with Chris Stapleton. She has opened for Lori McKenna, Hot Rize and Martina McBride.

Marion Halliday (Trickster Sister) to open!

A proud purveyor of her own special blend of bluegrass and bourbon-infused, original, woman-powered Americana. Named one of the "Ones to Watch" by the Nashville Songwriters Association International.

Past Riverside Shows

RR&R welcomes Margo Hennebach & Mark Saunders!!
Sunday, October 21, 2018

Margo Hennebach and Mark Saunders combine award winning songs, highly evolved musicianship, and a playful but commanding presence on stage to make them a favorite of critics and audiences alike. While their music is prayer-like at times, Margo and Mark are also true entertainers, having performed for years in venues all over the country including the Kennedy Center in Washington, DC, the acclaimed Philadelphia Folk Festival, the Bluebird Cafe in Nashville, TN, and a long list of concert halls and coffeehouses and tiny house concerts.

Hennebach developed her craft while living in Hoboken and backing up several artists on the New York Fast Folk scene including Richard Shindell, John Gorka, Shawn Colvin, and Rod Mac Donald. Before that, she received a BM in Piano Performance from Oberlin and a masters degree in Music Therapy from the Guildhall School of Music in London. Saunders also has a degree in Classical Guitar from the Hartford Conservatory, but then cut his teeth on R&B music. He brings an edge--and an assortment of left-handed guitars--to Margo's playing that can only be described as electrifying. Together they perform almost single-mindedly, moving deftly from heartfelt ballad to Celtic anthem. They can be heard combining Celtic, gospel, pop and folk influences in Margo's fourth release on Prime CD, "Big Love," which The Cleveland Free Times a "seamless project that wonderfully succeeds in offering inspiration, appreciation, hope and faith."

RR&R welcomes Brad Cole & Robinson Treacher!!


The songs of Brad Cole address the ups and downs of the human condition with both wit and raw insight. His passionate and distinctive delivery of roots-based folk music, woven with the grit and groove of old school bossa and rhythm & blues moves a listener’s soul in a direction that is unexpected, yet perfectly familiar.

2016 marked the release of Cole’s fourth full-length record Lay It Down. Recorded in East Nashville, TN with producer Joe McMahan and a veteran cast of musicians resulting in a project that is perhaps Cole’s most soulfully eclectic and cohesive work to date.

In addition, Cole curates the traveling songwriter series Acoustic Circus. In 2016, his life and music became the main subject of a short film titled Cole Soul by award-winning filmmaker Steven Weiss.  http://www.bradcolemusic.com/

Robinson Treacher, like the long list of New York City artists before him, feeds off the honest grit found among the "huddled masses"...coupling the blatantly obvious (to a New Yorker at least) with the deeply personal. Believing that each song is forged from its own unique terrain, he takes great pains in choosing the vehicle by which passengers might best weather the bumps, potholes, and blind curves found between the first note and the last. Admittedly susceptible to the affectations of the senses himself, he asks his audience to participate emotionally as well as physically in a "whole self " conceptual challenge, a 360 degree soul search comprised of the most joyous elation to the bitterest of pains.

Robinson has been featured on Sirius/XM's "The Loft: Live from The Living Room" series, has been a guest with John Platt on New York's famed WFUV Radio and has recently been awarded Best Artist at Virginia's largest Lyrics On The Lake Music Festival.. He has even been touted by legendary songwriter Don Schlitz ("Forever and Ever Amen", "When You Say Nothing At All", "The Gambler") as being, "...impossible to follow in concert."  http://www.robinsontreacher.com/

Alex Radus to open the show!
Smooth and jazzy being the theme, Alex is the perfect fit. 
"This man can sing! From the deep and dark growl of 'Soldier of the Devil' to the soaring tenor on 'I Haven't Missed You', Radus' voice will move you. At once blues driven and jazz inspired...Radus' playng is as versatile as his songwriting." -Carter Lansing, Elucidator

August 5th - Songwriters Showcase with Ryanhood!
 

NAMED “BEST GROUP/DUO” in the 2014 International Acoustic Music Awards (IAMA’s), acoustic-duo Ryanhood got their first break more than a decade ago as street-performers at Boston’s Quincy Market. 

They soon took this high-energy, highly-interactive street-performers approach to the college market, where they quickly became one of the most popular bands on the circuit, playing upwards of 130 college dates a year. Cameron Hood’s rich and folky lead vocals, Ryan Green’s explosive guitar and mandolin riffs, and their airtight vocal harmonies prompted the Arizona Daily Star to call them, “a match made in radio heaven.”

And now, twelve years after their street start, Ryanhood’s star is still on the rise. Their sixth and newest album, Yearbook, released in March 2017, and has been described as ““nestled in a great pocket, feeling all at once focused on storytelling and intimacy while not being afraid to wield a big musical stick” by For Folk’s Sake. They currently reside in their hometown of Tucson, AZ, where they have won more than a dozen Tucson Music Awards including “Best Folk Band” and “Best Rock Band” (you can decide for yourself which is most accurate).

Come early or stay after the show to enjoy HorseshoeLake. Picnic or stroll the walking paths.

Energetic, eclectic John Beacher to open!
A prolific songwriter, natural performer and “hope enthusiast,” John Beacher has built his decade-long career not only with talent but a genuine spirit and kind heart. John’s music is a homecoming for the soul, timeless and sincere, and taps into a source that runs far deeper than the songwriter himself. A seasoned musician whose ability to improvise both on guitar and with his voice makes each performance an entirely unique reflection of the audience and his surroundings.
