“Abilene on the Road”

presents

EILEN JEWELL



Downstairs Cabaret @ Winton Place, 3450 Winton Place, Brighton, NY 14623

She’s a rock ‘n’ roll mama from way out west in Idaho.

After a brief hiatus last summer to welcome her first child into the world,

Eilen Jewell is packing up her signature black dress, cowgirl boots, and guitar

and is hitting the road again with a live double album release in tow and

a new studio album due in Spring, 2015.. The past year has been one of reflection and incredible output for Eilen.

  The singer-songwriter gave birth to a beautiful girl named Mavis (after gospel great Mavis Staples).

Jewell squeezed in a few tours  in 2014 and somehow found time to honor a frequent request

from fans to release a live album.  The two disc set, titled “Live at the Narrows,”

includes original songs and some of her favorite covers.

  This special self-release was recorded over two evenings in early 2014.

Crafting a unique style that mixes her poetic ballads with swinging rockers,

Eilen ranks among the best in the Americana genre today.  As the reigning Queen of the Minor Key,

Jewell leads a tight quartet who blend influences of surf-noir, early blues, rockabilly, and 1960’s era rock ‘n’ roll.

****SPECIAL SHOW****

Monday, May 4….doors 6pm, music 8:30pm

DANGERMUFFIN


Dangermuffin can no longer be plainly dubbed an Americana or roots-rock band.

Behind the virtuosic rhythms of drummer Steven Sandifer, the group seamlessly

segues from calypso to world beat to a down-home shuffle, often within the same song.

  When guitarist Mikie Sivilli steps in with a powerful slide-driven lead,

one might even venture to call it Southern rock.  But by the time songwriter Dan Lotti

sings the first words of another verse with his unmistakeable light rasp,

the listener is undeniably back on the beach, pondering both the world’s pleasures and ills through sandy toes.
