New shows at Old Rock House

John Waite
Monday, September 12
Doors 7pm
Show 8pm $25 Advance $29 Day of Show All Ages

Three decades have passed since a restless, wild-eyed teenager from northwest England first packed his bags for London to pursue his passion for music, and though he has enjoyed formidably staying power, chart-topping records and sold-out concerts around the world, John Waite’s hunger has never diminished – it has simply become something much more complex.  The turn of the page to 2010 finds the ever-evolving British singer/songwriter preparing the release of In Real Time, an electrifying live album recorded with his high-octane three-piece band.

Chamberlin / Fort Frances
Tuesday, September 27
Doors 7pm
Show 8pm $8 Flat All Ages

Chamberlin plays music in an isolated cabin, high in the mountains of Vermont. When not playing music they keep themselves entertained with cheap whiskey and cheaper thrills, like backgammon, cricket (their favored variation of English darts), cynicism, ad hominems, skeet shooting and Shagai, a traditional Mongolian dice game. They are currently recording their full-length debut album with producer Scott Tournet, a fellow Vermonter who plays guitar with Grace Potter and Blues & Lasers. The record is set for release in 2011 on Roll Call Records/EMI.

Bobby Long
The Listening Room Series
Saturday, October 8
Doors 7pm
Show 8pm $17 Reserved $10 General Admission All Ages

British singer-songwriter-guitarist Bobby Long's anticipated debut studio album A WINTER TALE, produced by Grammy-winner Liam Watson (White Stripes) will be released February 1st, 2011 on ATO Records. Currently residing in New York City, the 24-year old Long has been writing finely-crafted songs since taking up the guitar at age 17; from then on he’s been creating memorable songs inhabited by hauntingly poetic lyrics. After relocating to London from Wiltshire in the countryside of South West England, he became a fixture at London’s open-mic nights while attending London Metropolitan University where he studied Music in Film and wrote his thesis on The Social Impact of American Folk Music.

Priscilla Ahn
Sunday, October 9
Doors 7pm
Show 8pm $13 Advance $15 Day of Show All Ages

Growth emerges as the central theme of Priscilla Ahn’s album When You Grow Up, a stunning 12-song set produced by Ethan Johns that exhibits Ahn’s profound growth as an artist and a songwriter. Ahn wrote or co-wrote all but one of the album’s songs, threading a loose storyline through life’s ups and downs, her angelic voice narrating the experiences through which we grow. All of us, especially artists, are always in flux, ever changing. Judging from When You Grow Up, listeners can expect even bigger and better things from Priscilla Ahn over time.
