Darlingside with special guest Caitlin Canty

Join us for an evening of acoustic music as we present Darlingside, a Massachusetts-based quartet that is exploding on the national acoustic music scene. With a quartet of distinct voices clustered around a single microphone, Darlingside effortlessly draws audiences into their lush, dynamic musical world. The band’s sound, characterized by classical strings, tight vocal arrangements, bluegrass and rock instrumentation, is the product of complete collaboration among the four close friends. Pulling from folk, retro-pop, barbershop and chamber music, they are a powerhouse of vocal talent. Get to know the Darlingside sound here:

Their visit last July was possibly the most talked about concert of the year. Caitlin Canty, a headliner in her own right, will open the show.

Start the St. Patrick’s Day celebration early with this quintessential Irish-American band. Formed in 1996, Solas (Gaelic for “light”) burst onto the Irish music scene and instantly became an incandescent ensemble that found contemporary relevance in timeless traditions. The group brings mastery of the flute, banjo, mandolin, guitar, and other traditional instruments to their dynamic live shows. Solas continues to be the standard bearer, not only for great Irish music, but for great music of any genre.

Black Lillies

The Black Lillies return to the Big Room after exploding on the national music scene. The band was named one of Rolling Stone magazine’s “10 Artists You Need to Know.” Their album Runaway Freeway Blues was named album of the year on Nashville’s legendary WSM radio and included in the Americana Music Association’s top 20 albums of the year. They sold out their last appearance here so don’t miss the opportunity to see this national headline group in the cozy confines of the Big Room. And, yes, the dance floor is open.
