Antje Duvekot - Two Nights! w/ Special Guest Chris O'Brien

Antje Duvekot - Two Nights! w/ Special Guest Chris O'Brien

"This is a brilliant, brilliant album. I have had this reaction once in the last 10 years and that was the first time I heard Patty Griffin." - Dave Marsh, Rolling Stone

Antje Duvekot has solidified her reputation as one of Boston's top singer songwriters with "Big Dream Boulevard" her debut studio release and "the Near Demise of the Highwire Dancer" and "New Siberia" her follow-up albums. The debut CD was produced by Seamus Egan, founder of the Irish super group, SOLAS and the project was released on songwriter Ellis Paul's label and quickly attracted international attention for Antje. It was voted "#1 Folk Release of 2006" by the Boston Globe and was named to the "Top10 Releases of the Year" by National Public Radio's, Folk Alley. Her follow up albums "the Near Demise of the Highwire Dancer" and "New Siberia" were produced by Richard Shindell and along side with Richard feature other "folk royalty" such as John Gorka, Lucy Kaplancky and Mark Erelli.

"What a blessing to have worked with someone as talented as Antje. With a voice like hers, and songs as good as these, a producer (especially a first-time producer!) just tries to get out of the way, to do no harm, and to let the artist speak for herself." - Richard Shindell

Chris O’Brien began performing in the early 2000s in the Cambridge, Massachusetts area and quickly became a fixture in local music scene. During this period, Chris shared the stage with many of the country’s best emerging and established songwriters, including Antje Duvekot, Anais Mitchell, Rose Cousins, Ellis Paul, Vance Gilbert, Anne Heaton, Edie Carey, Meg Hutchinson, and many others.

In 2007, Chris released his first album, Lighthouse, which caught the eye (and ears) of the producers of NPR’s A Prairie Home Companion. In April 2007, Chris traveled with legendary guitarist Lyle Brewer and the iconic Charlie Rose to St. Paul, Minnesota to appear live on the show. Following the performance, Lighthouse skyrocketed to #5 on iTunes’ singer/songwriter charts. Over the next three years Chris toured throughout the United States, performing at clubs, bars, festivals, colleges, fields, living rooms, porches, and parking lots.

$20 in advance. $25 at the door.
