The Boston folk scene descends on 92YTribeca for an exciting record release.
Boston-based duo Tall Heights blends “a mellifluous mix of guitar, cello and vocal harmonies.” They are "a fixture in the city’s folk/rock scene" and play "music that is pretty, passion-laden and catchy as hell.” (Performer Magazine) They've been headlining packed houses across New England and performing alongside national acts like David Wilcox, Barefoot Truth and Andrew Belle, in addition to recent performances here in New York. Don't miss their return to the 92YTribeca mainstage for the release of their new LP Man of Stone.
Anthony da Costa
At the ripe age of twenty-one and a senior at Columbia University, Anthony da Costa embarks on the release of Secret Handshake. In 2009, Anthony was named an MSNBC.com “Top 5 Up-&-Coming Young Singer” and a “WFUV-FM New Artist To Watch.” In 2008, he released two critically-acclaimed albums and was a Folk Alliance “Emerging Artist of the Year” nominee. In 2007, at 16, he became the youngest winner ever at the Falcon Ridge and Kerrville Folk Festivals.
Anthony has played major festivals, showcased at SXSW and Tin Pan South, and opened for such music icons as Loretta Lynn, Judy Collins, Suzanne Vega and Dan Bern. With one foot in folk, and the other foot loose and wandering into various other genres, Anthony released his eighth record in 2009, Not Afraid of Nothing, which “has the lyrical quality of a John Prine album” (Twangville). He recently completed his latest album, a rock/americana effort called Secret Handshake. It was recorded in Brooklyn and features a slew of wonderful NYC musicians.
Raised in Vermont and now based in NYC, singer/songwriter Caitlin Canty contributes her pure, nuanced singing to several bands in addition to maintaining an active tour schedule of her own. When it’s her own name on the marquis, she often brings along a duo or trio consisting of some of the most respected sidemen in the Northeast scene. Her current collaborations include co-writing and contributing backing vocals for several bands, including string rock band Darlingside, and serving as one half of the duo Down Like Silver with Peter Bradley Adams, which released its debut EP in 2011. Caitlin has independently released several EPs including Neon Streets (2010) and one full-length album, Green (2007), which she recorded and mixed in her home studio. Canty released her sophomore album Golden Hour on October 2, 2012. The fan-funded album blends Canty’s folk roots with a Western tone, and her Brooklyn-based, Nashville-bred band brings an alt-country flavor to her songs.
Tickets: $10 in advance / $12 day of show.
