Join us for a night of songs 'in the round' as 'The Heart Lands Tour' joins forces with Indiana Songwriters including Bill Headley @Player's Pub. Monday May 18th, 8pm.
Awna Teixeira, Huck Notari, & Jenn Rawling-
‘The Heart Lands’ Spring tour 2015
Vintage folk, heartfelt country balladry, and a side of accordion, you don’t want to miss songwriters Awna Teixeira (of Po girl), Huck Notari, (from Portland, OR), & Jenn Rawling (Midwest born) as they croon their way across the Midwest for just 3 weeks this May. It’s a rare songbird migrating for this limited edition of time. I’d grab this, hold it close, and call it the geode of evenings.
Awna Teixeira- Portuguese Canadian, Awna Teixeira has been touring steady in different bands since 2001. While handling the many instruments with ease, Awna’s songs convey that classic old time feel of back porch spirituals. Crossing borders with her Portuguese upbringing, you can also hear her tales of heartache and travel through accordion driven European folk. Performing primarily on banjo, accordion, guitar Awna has added playing percussion with her feet both on Tambourine and an old suitcase. She is releasing her second full length album ‘Wild One’ March 2015.
“Dark vivid lyrical imagery, beautifully layered instrumentation, delicate yet fierce vocals” -Santa Fe New Mexican
Jenn Rawling- Vintage American Folk singer/songwriter Jenn Rawling composes highly melodic songs from fascinating scraps of images and phrases, singing them with a vibrant, immediately engaging yodel-edged alto. Rawling's playful, poetic lyrics are enhanced by her sophisticated sense of phrasing and pace.
“A rare songwriter whose varied and distinctive melodies trace the calls of birds and the motion of honey bees. Her songs don't connect the dots- they leap, and the intuitive connections she makes are so true that she takes us with her. “ Andrew Calhoun, Waterbug Records
Huck Notari- is best described as Original Country Folk. Steeped in the authenticity of time gone by, he draws his listeners into a timeless place of old values. Growing up in the White Mountains of New Hampshire and living the mountain life deeply impacted Huck. After many travels, it is his appreciation for simpler times, the country, and down-to-earth people that come through loudest in his genuine smile and heart breaking melodies. Huck lives in Portland, OR and plays regularly in the Northwest.
"Huck is one of the finest songwriters in America today - songs full of truth and peace - they do what songs ought to do" - Samantha Parton, The Be Good Tanyas
