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

Bluegrass OnStage! poster

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.
