As we wind down the Concerts at the Crossing concert series over the next two seasons we’re honored to kick off our next to last season with the folk-rock duo Aztec Two-Step. We’re huge fans of Rex Fowler and Neal Shulman who first met in 1971 and continue to engage audiences today. They’ve put together a special show for tonight, which will include Aztec Two Step classics as well as their renditions of the songs of a few iconic Classic Duos who came before them.

If you’re not familiar with this legendary folk-rock duo, they released their 1972 self-titled debut on Elektra Records, and their next three albums on RCA. They received the New York Music Award for Best Folk Album in 1986, and have performed on TV and radio programs such as Late Night with David LettermanThe King Biscuit Flower Hour, and World Cafe Live. A documentary about Aztec Two Step, No-Hit Wonder, aired on PBS in 1999.

After more than forty years, Aztec Two-Step is still known for their intelligent songwriting, dazzling acoustic lead guitar and inspiring harmonies, and are considered one of acoustic music’s most respected and enduring acts.

Seth Glier w/special guest Annalise Emerick, Oct. 18, 2014

Our audience has been lucky ver the years to have been wowed by many emerging artists, but few have made an impression like Grammy nominee Seth Glier. A live Seth Glier show is an exhilarating experience. In no time, Seth has gone from opening act to headlining his own shows and performing at major folk festivals, all culminating in a nod from the Grammys in 2012 for the work he did on his sophomore record, The Next Right Thing. Having spent the majority of his teens and early twenties on the road, the now 26-year-old Massachusetts native describes his latest album Things I Should Let You Know as “a reckoning with adulthood.” http://www.sethglier.com

annaliseOpening the show, and coming with the Seth Glier seal of approval is Boston-based folk songstress Annalise Emerick, first prize winner of the 2013 New England Songwriting Competition. Her acoustic-driven style and earnest, contemplative lyrics will appeal to fans of Eva Cassidy, Patty Griffin and Brandi Carlile. http://www.annaliseemerick.com


Girls Guns and Glory & Sarah Borges, November 15, 2014

Tickets: $20; Kids 14 and under $5. Order tickets online. Online ticket orders end at 3 p.m. the day of the show. All tickets ordered online are picked up at the door the night of the show. No tickets are mailed. Doors open at 6:45.

If it weren’t for bands like Girls Guns and Glory and performers like Sarah Borges, it is doubtful Concerts at the Crossing would still be rocking Titusville after 19 seasons. This is exactly the kind of group that almost makes us want to rethink our decision to wind down the series.

For the past eight years, Boston’s Girls Guns and Glory have been making a name for themselves through relentless touring (about 200 gigs a year worldwide), the release of four critically acclaimed records, a slew of local awards, including being the Boston Music Awards first act of its genre to win Act of the Year, and international awards (Independent Artist of the Year at the French Country Music Awards). And, now, the hard-working band is refining their focus to the roots of rock ‘n’ roll with a twist of country on their fifth album, Good Luck.

The foursome (Ward Hayden on vocals/guitar, Paul Dilley on electric and upright bass/piano, Josh Kiggans on drums/percussion, and Chris Hersch on lead guitar/banjo) found inspiration for this record from early ’50s rock ‘n’ roll icons such as Chuck Berry, Eddie Cochran, and Buddy Holly, as well as country greats like Hank Williams and Johnny Cash. www.girlsgunsandglory.com

SarahBorgesPromoPicAs an added bonus, kicking off the evening and backed by Girls Guns and Glory is Sarah Borges who some of you may be familiar with from her recordings and seven years touring with her band The Broken Singles. Rolling Stone describes Sarah’s music as “friendly pop-rock with bits of twang, rockabilly, and ‘50’s pop,” and The New York Times described her as a “modern-minded honky tonker with a retro streak.” An equally apt description comes from Paste magazine, which wrote, “she has all the good parts of Sheryl Crow’s sound without the L.A. pop suckdom.” Her first release, as a solo artist, Radio Sweetheart is receiving rave reviews. Expect to hear songs from that album as well as some of her earlier work this evening. www.sarahborges.com

Whatever you do, don’t miss this rocking night at the Crossing.
