DESCRIPTION

A night of fantastic music featuring the duo Larry Campbell & Teresa Williams and the solo artist Lucy Kaplansky.

 

Larry Campbell & Teresa Williams

Multi-instrumentalist-singer-songwriter Larry Campbell and singer-guitarist Teresa Williams' acclaimed eponymous 2015 debut, released after seven years of playing in Levon Helm's band - and frequent guesting with Phil Lesh, Little Feat, Jorma Kaukonen and Jack Casady, brought to the stage the crackling creative energy of a decades-long offstage union. A whirlwind of touring and promo followed, and when the dust cleared, the duo was ready to do it all again. Which brings us to Contraband Love, a riskier slice of Americana.

Larry, who produced Contraband Love, says, "I wanted this record to be a progression, bigger than the first one. That's all I knew. I wanted the songwriting to be deeper, the arrangements more interesting, the performances more dynamic. Specifically how to get there, I didn't know. I did know the songs were different. The subject matter was darker than anything else I've written."

"More painful!" Teresa says, and laughs.

"Yeah," Larry says with a smile. "I'm proud of our debut, but I felt like the songs were lighter than what I'm capable of doing. As a songwriter, I aspire to a sense of uniqueness: this is a great song and it could only have been written by me. I want to get there. It's a journey, a goal, a pursuit. The mechanics of that pursuit are figuring out what you need to do to surpass your last body of work."

 

Lucy Kaplansky

"A truly gifted performer with a bag full of enchanting songs." THE NEW YORKER

"Kaplansky weaves fragile lives together, making even tenuous connections as palpable as flesh and blood." USA TODAY

"New York songwriter Lucy Kaplansky is becoming the troubadour laureate of modern folk." THE BOSTON GLOBE

"I'm thrilled to announce the release of my first solo album in six years, Everyday Street. It's the most acoustically based, intimate album I've ever made: just me and multi-instrumentalist Duke Levine (J.
Geils Band, Mary Chapin Carpenter), and features harmonies by my old friends Shawn Colvin and
Richard Shindell.

"The songs on 'Everyday Street,' co-written with my husband Richard Litvin, weave stories of joy, friendship, family, loss and discovery. The opening song, "Old Friends," a duet with my long-time friend Shawn Colvin, is a reflection on our friendship and on our times together in the early days of the Greenwich Village folk scene. "Keeping Time," with Richard Shindell on harmony, is from my vantage point as a mother sharing our neighborhood's rhythms, albeit from a distance, with the late actor and father of three Philip Seymour Hoffman. "Janie's Waltz" is about the beauty and grace of an ordinary day. The everyday streets of my long-time home, Greenwich Village in New York City, are woven throughout this recording." - Lucy Kaplansky
