Nikki Talley is one of the best Americana singers and songwriters we've come across in the past couple years. It's hard to decide what's more powerful - her songs or her voice. Some of our best concerts have been duos that are couples -- Nikki and husband/guitarist Jason Sharp are definitely going to keep that streak intact.

It has to be said that some of the most exquisite vocalists of the generation belong to the Americana scene. For those of us who have been lucky enough to find them, the voices of Sarah Jarosz, Anais Mitchell, Rachel Ries, Diana Jones and Aoife O'Donovan represent an era of truly exceptional singing and storytelling which often goes beyond the sometimes superficial, mass-produced music of your everyday arena artist. Nikki Talley is another name that can be easily added to this tantalising list.NorthernSky Magazine

"One thing she isn’t: afraid of the microphone. Talley has undeniable stage presence…"  – Mountain Express

Marah

Saturday, July 29th

Doors open at 7:30pm, music starts at 8:00pm


"Marah's signature sound: a combustible mix of acoustic string music and rebellious Replacements-like rock & roll fleshed out by imaginative lyrics." - Rolling Stone Magazine

"I’d heard a great deal about their legendary live shows, and was not disappointed...The next time Marah comes to town, mark your calendar; they’ll revitalize your faith in music and humanity. Don’t miss the show!" - Ellmore Magazine

Marah is a great, great rock band that gets compared to The Rolling Stones, The Replacements, Steve Earle, and Bruce Springsteen. They are also one of the best live bands around. So when they asked us to host a show, we said "Hell yes!"

We've loved Marah ever since we heard Kids in Philly in 2000. Part of what we love about them is how much their music reflects their hometown. Many of their songs feature Philadelphia's landmarks and neighborhoods. Their songs also incorporate the city's music, from the manic banjo of the Mummer's parade to doo-wop harmonies.



This will be a mostly acoustic trio show, but they are still going to deliver more rock than a quarry truck.
