Jenee Halstead needs your support!


Jenee Halstead, a country-folk singer-songwriter out of Boston is planning a European and US tour to promote her new EP Hollow Bones. The only catch is she needs fans to pledge 2500 dollars in 30 days toward funding the tours. She is playing in the Deli showcase this Friday at the Armory (see above) so obviously we like her. Check out her cute video on her website to see how you can help this lovely young artist get her music across the pond and across the conutry. You can make your pledge and watch the video here.

Deli New England Showcase #2!


Deli New England is proud to announce a showcase for the ages. On Friday March 19th at the Armory Cafe, Dan Blakeslee, Brendan Hogan and Jenee Halstead come together to offer a sample of some of Boston's best folk. Blakeslee, a self-described "Artist Musician Type", designs the flyers for each show he plays (see above). He carries the non-nonsense attitude of Johnny Cash, while holding a soft Dylan-esque spirit. Hogan just celebrated the release of his first album, Long Night Coming in January which was well-received. You can read the interview we did with him HERE. Halstead teeters on the rural side of the folk spectrum. Like her influences, Emmylou Harris and Patty Griffin, her songs are wise and saccharine with audible roots in the past. We are very excited to present these fine, fine musicians. Dan will be selling his art at the show as well. The Armory is a short walk from Davis Sq T stop on the Red line or Union Sq. There is free parking in the back of the building. It is a large white castle-type building. Can't miss it, just like you can't miss this show! 


Friday, March 19th - 7:30pm - Arts at the Armory Cafe - 191 Highland Ave. Somerville, MA - 7$ - All ages

Joy Kills Sorrow @ Club Passim 3.13

Joy Kills Sorrow  is not an average of folk/Americana string-band. The band is known for genuinely incorporating swing-and-sway jazz rhythms with high-energy roots styles associated with American folk. The talent that makes up Joy Kills Sorrow ranges from the smokey voice of lead-vocalist Emma Beaton to the intense mandolin styling of Jacob Jolliff. A fantastic and fresh sound stemming from old school American sounds.They recently released Darkness Sure Becomes This City in February. Joy Kills Sorrow will be at  Club Passim this Saturday at 8pm. You can purchase tickets HERE.

Couple of Burlington's better folky/rocky left-fielders will be showing up at the big stage at Higher Ground in South Burlington tonight. Paper Castles was nominated for The Deli New England's best artist last year and Buzz Jar has been kicking their twangy jams all over the place recently. A weekday show definately worth checking out.
