Bluegrass and Beyond: A Night of Americana Music
The On Stage! concert series at the Chevalier Theatre in Medford, MA is pleased to welcome a
triple-bill of the Boston-area’s finest Americana performers: Honeysuckle, Aurora Birch and
Damn Tall Buildings on Saturday, May 13th at 8:00 pm.
Honeysuckle– comprised of Holly McGarry, Benjamin Burns, and Chris Bloniarz- is a highly
respected progressive folk act that successfully blends older influences and traditional
instrumentation with modern effects and inspiration. They are
Boston Music Awards 2016 nominee for Best Americana and Best Folk Artist and
Americana/Roots Act of the Year as well as Big Red’s Red Line Roots’ 2016 Album Of The
Chicago native and Berklee College of Music graduate Aurora Birch is a folk-rock singer/
songwriter based in the greater Boston area. She specializes in heartfelt, contemplative
songwriting, weaving purposefully through the spectrum of nonsense and lucidity, of infinite and
infinitesimal, of delicately fanciful and brutally blunt. As a performer, Aurora composes
remarkably captivating moments that extend to every seat in the house. With a perfect pairing of
singer and song, she exudes an undeniable magnetism on stage.
Damn Tall Buildings is a dynamic quartet that started off by street performing on Newbury St.
in Boston and eventually developed the fully-immersive and truly electrifying performance style
for which they are known today. DTB has performed at numerous venues and festivals across
the continental U.S. – most recently including GreyFox Bluegrass Festival, Philadelphia Folk
Festival, Podunk Bluegrass Festival, Bluegrass On The Bogs, Vinegrass, Freshgrass Festival
(where they were awarded 2nd place in the 2016 band competition).
For the On Stage! concert series, the theater is transformed into an intimate, coffeehouse-style
venue by placing both the performer and the audience on stage together. With this set up, the
venue capacity is approximately 100 people, creating a unique setting to get up-close and
personal with world-class musicians.
