Sunday 5/29 JULIA HALTIGAN

Julia’s signature artistry evokes Brigitte Bardot, Marianne Faithfull, Iggy Pop, Debbie Harry, and Lou Reed. Like these artists, Julia’s creativeness is authentically immersive. In her fashion, her live shows, and her music is a distinct mélange of sophistication and seediness, like pulp novels, B-movies, and the flawed charms of icons such as Dean Martin and Jayne Mansfield.

Her latest album Change the Ending, released last August by Blix Street Records has led to more good reviews, a video for its first single “Me After You” and another string of dates opening for rock and roll hall of famer, Bonnie Raitt.

James Maddock

British born James Maddock was first recognized in the U.S as leader of the band Wood (Songs From Stamford Hill - Columbia Records). Songs From Stamford Hill, which remains a fan favorite 10 years later, produced a Top 5 Triple A hit (Stay You) and was included in the first Dawson's Creek compilation. In 2009 Maddock released the exquisite collection of songs, Sunrise On Avenue C, for which he won the 2010-11 NY Music Award for Best Americana Album. Maddock followed Sunrise in 2011 with Wake Up and Dream. NYC’s WFUV 2011 Listener's Poll named Wake Up and Dream as one of the top albums of 2011. The song “Beautiful Now”, co-written with Mike Scott of Waterboys fame, was named the #9 song of 2011 in the same poll.

FREDDIE STEVENSON - Sat. 6/2 @ 6:00 PM


New York City may have just found the troubadour it's been searching for, in Edinburgh native Freddie Stevenson. His folk songs capture the romance and loss of moments in time, with a heavy emphasis on meaningful songwriting. Stevenson was trained as an actor, but music has been an innate passion for him. Growing up with artist parents, Stevenson found his love for playing the guitar at 11 years old. Since then, songwriting and playing guitar have become a central focus for him. Stevenson currently has a residency at Rockwood Music Hall every Sunday at midnight performing his solo work, but he also takes part in playing in The Dirty Urchins. Stevenson's album, The City is King, out yesterday, captures Stevenson's feelings on living in New York City and transitioning into a new life. His music is existential and follows the emotions of past romances and travels.

The Chicago based folk duo of Jacquie Manning and Rich Prezioso say it has taken them years of careful indecision to develop a repertoire they describe as "Celtic to Cowboy." Superb musicianship and showmanship, award-winning songwriting, and a strong sense of tradition has made them, as Dirty Linen Magazine once said, "one of the most polished, inventive, and entertaining shows on the circuit."

Sunday October 23, 2011 2:00 PM - 6:00 PM

Julia Haltigan grew up in New York City off the Bowery in the 1980s. As an only child born into a musically inclined family, Julia learned to use her voice to attract attention. Her songs have an antique, Americana-pop feel. Her lyrics create a collage of imagery that relates heartache, yearning and lust, to motorcycles, fake tattoos and viruses. At times her powerful, sultry voice booms above her six-piece band while at other times she showcases her soft and sexy side melting your heart. Julia’s music arouses nostalgia for the classics, evoking the likes of Tom Waits, Nancy Sinatra, and Betty Boop. She puts you out like a Lucky cigarette in an ice cream cone.
