The Bachelor & The Bad Actress, Scott Barkan, Woodson Kelley, Arsena Schroeder

The Bachelor & The Bad Actress
www.thebachelorandthebadactress.com
An all-original acoustic band fronted by Joseph P. Swelterpants and his lady Hillary. A rotating cast of characters provides bass, fiddle, banjo, mandolin, and drums. The audience plays the bike bells.

Scott Barkan
http://www.scottbarkanmusic.com
After years of working as an in demand sideman for various songwriters and bands around the country, having his guitar playing and songwriting featured on national television (The Real World, The Hills, Keeping up with the Kardashians, etc.), as well as leading numerous guitar oriented instrumental projects, Scott has recently struck out as a solo artist.
The new project, which finds Scott’s signature shimmering guitar tones and skronky, avant/country improvisations serving as the backdrop for his witty, self-effacing and often heartbreaking lyric writing, is without-a-doubt Barkan’s most personal project to date.

Woodson Kelley
www.woodsonkelley.com
Woodson Kelley(Born in TX, Living in VA) recently released his debut EP(independently), a collection of soulful anthems built on early Folk/Americana influences and acoustic guitar-driven choruses similar to City and Colour, Woodson crafted an EP that can stand up against many other albums in his genre.

Arsena Schroeder
www.arsenamusic.com
In her 1st full-length album, independent artist Arsena Schroeder offers her most polished work yet- For My Artist Child - 12 songs about awakening your inner creativity in essence of truth, light, and love. Hailing from Charlotte, NC, Schroeder’s music, voice, and songwriting have been compared to the likes of Corinne Bailey Rae, India Arie, & Lauryn Hill. Crafting original songs soaked in singer-songwriter and pop-soul genres, issues of empowerment, love, and cryptic faith are lyrically intertwined in a mix meant to free and fuel the soul.

The Bumperyachts - Live in the Coffeehouse

Saturday, May 2, 7:00 PM to 8:00 PM · Add to Calendar

Ebenezers Coffeehouse

The Bumperyachts - Live in the Coffeehouse

Grant Goldsworthy and Steve Mondschein of The Bumperyachts first started playing and writing music together in 2000. They quickly formed an original, alt-rock band (which featured Goldsworthy on bass and lead vocals, and Mondschein on guitar), as well as a short-lived ska project. The two went off to their respective colleges shortly thereafter, and the projects dissolved. For years, without a band, the two would return to write and record music that, for the most part, would never leave their basement studio. The two would practice recording their own songs, overdubbing all of the instruments and adding layers of vocal harmonies to create the sound of the full band they imagined. In 2012, on a whim, Goldsworthy bought a ukulele and started teaching himself to play. This became a catalyst for the two to start playing live shows and writing new material again, this time as an acoustic duo, under the name “The Bumperyachts.” The two are hard at work on their debut album, which will be released in mid-2015. The pair brought in Krystal Grant on keys, Robbie Kirk on bass, and Steve Lisi on percussion, to complete their live sound.

Ebenezers Coffeehouse

Annie Stokes (Full Band), Von Strantz, Hannah Aldridge

Annie Stokes Music
www.anniestokesmusic.com
Annie Stokes is an indie-folk musician from Virginia. Raised in the nation’s capital on an eclectic mixture of musical theater, bluegrass, and classic Americana, her music is a fusion of city sounds and country soul. Although playing guitar only began as a hobby, soon her hometown was buzzing about “that girl who sounds like Jewel.”
Accompanying herself on guitar and ukulele, and witha talented band comprised of bass, fiddle, and drums, Annie’s extensive performance background includes street fairs, cafes, vineyards, bars, breweries, nightclubs, indie music festivals, and most recently the Sylvan Theater Stage on the National Mall. She released her first EP, Ponygirl, in December 2014, and is currently working on her first full length album with Blue Hippo Records.

Von Strantz
www.sonicbids.com/vonstrantz
The sound of Von Strantz is described simply as folk n’ roll, akin to the tradition of Over the Rhine and the sacredness of The Vespers; the instrumentals stir the soul much like Mumford and Sons.
Utilizing a variety of instruments such as the mandolin, violin, bass, and cello, Von Strantz unites harmonies strung together by commanding and soulful lyrics. With story-sharing as their passion, Von Strantz invites their audience into the emotion of each piece. Von Strantz are storytellers, an ebb and flow of two different musicians, exploring the dark and emerging with hope.

Hannah Aldridge
http://hannah-aldridge.com/
“Dark Americana,” is how the daughter of Muscle Shoals’ royalty describes the ghostly, unflinching, sometimes gritty tales that separate her 10-song RAZOR WIRE collection from the mainstream. The title song –reprised as an acoustic “bonus” at CD’s end—is evidence of how this daughter of Shoals’ tunesmith and icon, Walt Aldridge uses her stark poetic soul to visit life’s dark corners. The song is a lust-and-melancholy retelling of the day she took her wedding ring to a pawn shop and then “was sitting around in a bar with a guy I met there. It’s 100 percent real.” While in some ways the song—the arms and bed of the barfly is eventual salve for love lost—is reminiscent of classic country standards about marital heartache and sexual healing, it demonstrates the raw musical texture and lyrics flavoring her entire album.

Glenn Roth - Live in the Coffeehouse

Saturday, April 11, 7:00 PM to 8:00 PM · Add to Calendar

Ebenezers Coffeehouse

Glenn Roth is not your typical commuter from Connecticut. Instead of a briefcase, he carries a gig bag. His workspace is the vaulted splendor of Grand Central Terminal or the tunnels and platforms of the New York City subway system. A literal “underground” sensation, Glenn is a licensed performer in the MTA’s “Music under New York” program, playing for the most distracted and demanding audience in the world: legions of workers rushing to jobs throughout the Big Apple. And his fingers work magic, creating a soundscape of compelling melodies that invite them to leave the cityrush behind on an aural escape. 

Glenn is a fingerstyle guitarist, his thumb riding the bassline and the melody driving all. His compositions suggest multiple guitars, but it’s really just one guy, ten flying fingers, one instrument. All instrumental, Glenn’s songs suggest moods and narratives that compel the listener to fill in the details.

Glenn has released three CDs to date: Innovations (2005), Busker (2006), and Into the Unknown (2010). His original compositions have been hailed as “sheer virtuosity” (20th Century Guitar magazine) and “delicate, accomplished solo acoustic guitar work” (PLAY: New Haven Arts & Entertainment Weekly). Glenn has shared bills with Stephen Bennett, Monty Montgomery, Tuck & Patti, Don Ross, Antoine Dufour, and Vicky Genfan, among others.”

Glenn plays regularly throughout the northeast and tours nationally & internationally as part of the 2014 Master Guitar Tour www.masterguitartour.com to bring his music to new fans and locales.
