Crafting a unique style that mixes poetic ballads with swinging rockers, Eilen Jewell ranks among the best in the Americana genre today. As the reigning Queen of the Minor Key, Jewell leads a tight quartet who blend influences of surf noir, early blues, rockabilly, and 1960s era rock and roll.
Over the course of a decade, Eilen and her band have toured relentlessly. They have performed for legions of fans from Boston to Boise and Madrid to Melbourne at festivals, theaters, rock clubs and coffeehouses. Eilen’s fans marvel at her warmth, unique wit, and onstage humor alongside her beautiful songs and fiery performances. Jewell’s fifth studio album, Sundown Over Ghost Town was released in May of 2015(Signature Sounds). The album was recorded with Eilen’s longtime road band in her hometown of Boise, and is composed of twelve stunning, original compositions that feature some of her most personal stories yet.
The Barley Hoppers
Formed by Stan Kozlowski and Ray Reniere after dicovering a mutual interest in old Honky Tonk, Sun records, Surf, and Swing music. They performed as a duo while trying various configurations and musicians. After seeing Mike Volatile performing with another local act he was they asked him to join the band and the lineup was complete. Since, the Barley Hoppers have been performing their unique blend of music-- not normally found in New England, but in the roadhouses of Texas and Tennessee-- to delighted audiences in the area.
The Barley Hoppers are a roots trio from Providence, RI that perform Honky Tonk, early Rock and Roll, Rockabilly, Surf, Swing, Blues, and Country. They have an extensive set list covering songs by artists such as Johnny Cash, Buck Owens, Roy Orbison, Wynn Stewart, Webb Pierce, Hank Williams, Richie Valens, Commander Cody, "The King" Elvis Presley, and even the Beatles. A Barley Hoppers show is alway a raucous occasion and a rockin' good time!
