Artists We'd Love to see

People that we'd like to see at Tupelo

I'd love to see Neil Young here or Don Mclean. That would bring back a flood of high-school memories. Crosby, Stills, Nash and Young would be kewl too.

Nanci Griffith would be excellent. I saw her perform at Hampton Beach Casino, with John Prine, and she was amazing!

The "Waifs"...!! Couldn't help but think of this Australian band when I recently saw "Fruit"...

And what about "Entrain"?? I see they are playing at "Whippersnappers" this month...
Right band, wrong spot for those of us who adore the scene at Tupelo!

Thanks much for last night's "Roomful of Blues"!
Tupelo rocks! :-)

We agree with Alyssa...the Chieftains WOULD be amazing!

Also, a couple of thoughts "outside the box"... wondering if you ever thought of doing a kid's music concert maybe with Tom Chapin, Steve Blunt, or Norman Foote? Maybe on a Sunday afternoon?

Another thought... a kid's show with professional storytellers. There are several in the local area including Jennifer Armstrong (http://www.jenniferarmstrong.com/) Papa Joe, and Storyteller Shawn.

Feel free to laugh if these are too "out there"!

Love the site!

Nanci just played Club Passim...135 seats @ $100 ticket. Sold out immediately. Entrain is a band that I have been thinking about. That would be a great night! I didn't know that they were playing at Whippersnappers...HMMM

I like Tracy Grammer a lot. Our schedule is booked solid in October but we will get her in the room eventually. Probably on a split bill.

Any chance in getting Susan Tedesci? She's a local...well, Boston. (close enough). She'd be awesome. Keep up the great work Tupelo, you're our favorite hot spot!

A hot up-and-coming, local band...Westbound Train. Keep them in mind for an fresh, interesting sound. www.westboundsound.com They are picking up a following around the country and they'll be off on tour in Europe this fall. Might be worth considering soon!

But I will keep saying ANI DIFRANCO! :)

Ani is HUGE in this area. In another part of the country it could happen. Alana Davis is someone that I have been considering. She is really good and getting a fair amount of airplay these days.

Someone told me the other night that Mountain Heart would be great to have. They're a pretty awesome bluegrass band. The websites www.mountainheart.com. and bluegrass fans travel! I also heard the band Carbon leaf in Copley plaza last night. They were pretty cool, about the same size as Stephen Kellogg.

Just was listening to Leo Kottke, a 12 string master. I think he'd be great for the Hall. Just so happens he's in New England in October from the 26th through the end of the month and has an open date on the 27th. That's an Open Mic Night, but.... well, it's just a thought.

Saw this in the Boston Globe today...she is a New Hampshire native. Haven't heard her but might be interesting to check out.
"Introducing Britt Kirk. She grew up in New Hampshire and played every instrument in her school's music department, anything she could get her hands on. From trumpets, to baritone horns, to saxophones, and drums...Kirk's love of music continued to grow. She moved to the Boston-area a little over two years ago and started playing the guitar and singing at open mics, coffee shops, bars, and even busking in the subway. She has found a cozy home in the rich Boston music scene.

Hi Scott,
There is SO MUCH great Canadian music that never makes it south of the border. I would absolutely LOVE to see Blue Rodeo at Tupelo (they're touring this late Sept/Oct in the states). Kathleen Edwards is a GREAT show. Cash Brothers/Skydiggers. Shannon Lyon. Oh Susanna. The Swallows. Bob Egan. I've sent Blue Rodeo your website as well :)

Hi Scott,
I noticed you mentioned English Beat - was there any interest? I was a huge fan, would love to see them. Also saw Anna Nalick and Amos Lee mentioned, they'd be great too. How about Jackie Green? (Another River artist - song samples on his website.) Can't wait to see John Eddie again!

Looking back, I was very pleased to see Ollabelle and Fruit.

Your support for Kate Klim has been nothing less than stellar. When she breaks into the big time, Tupelo can claim to be her launching pad.

Looking forward (big names): Richard Thompson, Dar Williams, John Renbourn & Jacqui McShee, Brooks Williams, Chris Smither, Sarah Lee Guthrie & Jeramy Irion, Geoff Bartley, David Grissman, Les Visible, Christopher Williams.

Local (generally Massachusetts based) musicians to watch: Lloyd Thayer, The Resophonics, Session Americana, Brian Webb (RI), Ailstair Moock, Steve Mayone, Joel Cage (NH), Josh Cole, Raymond Gonzalez, Danielle Miraglia, Robin O'Herin, Katrin Roush, Dennis Brennan, Jim's Big Ego.

Worthy of a special invitation to an open mic: Chip Quinn, Jess Yoakum, John Gerrard, Liz Kelly (NYC), Abby Lappen (NY), Evan Greer.

Amy Ray, Cordero (terrific latin base with folk/rock overtones), The Great Unknowns (amazing... formerly all of Boston, folk rock with country overtones) Athens Boys Choir (as an opener - make-you-think spoken-word performance)Yes, it's true, I'm very well-enamored with the bands of Daemon Records.

Also, Cosy Sheridan (grew up in Concord, NH), The Mammals (opened for Arlo's previous tour), Night Heron Consort.

If you really wanted to rock the house, there's a band named Three 5 Human that's been opening for the Indigo Girls, and I'd love to see them do their own show, gather some fans in the northeast, etc., etc., etc.

As mentioned by others... Anna Nalick, Leo Kottke, Girlyman.

How about M Ward? his last two albums are amazing.

This might already happen without the suggestion since Chris Trapper already plays there fairly often, but I'd love to see The Push Stars play at Tupelo when they tour this Fall.

I've also got to second the Antigone Rising suggestion. Those ladies are amazing.

If Vertical Horizon ever get back to the point where they're touring again then I'd love to see them back in a smaller venue again.

If Barenaked Ladies side projects Kevin Hearn and Thinbuckle, The Brothers Creeggan or The Cousins do a tour in the area then I'd love to see them as well.

Don't know if Ben Folds or Guster would be possible, but I'd love to see them play Tupelo as well.

Two bands from the same roots. The Yonrico Scott Band (YSB), everything that you like about the Derek Trucks Band (DTB) without Derek. I am a HUGE Derek Trucks fan, but the rest of the band can more than hold their own with soul, blues and jazz. YSB will be in the area in Aug / Sept. Then the DTB singer, Mike Mattison plays in a rough bluesey accoustic duet called Scrapomatic. Absolutely brilliant!! Both groups tour while Derek is out with the Allman Bros. Both have websites.

One of my favorite bands, The Lost Dogs, is currently touring. They don't often make it to this part of the country (mostly playing in the midwest and the south) but it would be great to see them make a trip up this way. I think they would be a great fit for Tupelo's

Hi Scott - This is a clip from a band called Mingo Fishtrap that I just became aware of. I know nothing about them other than they come from Austin, have three CD's and they would be a good fit for Tupelo. Check out this clip from You Tube...

Scott: Update on my message 3/25/08 about Keb Mo's schedule for 2008. Keb Mo's schedule is filling up fast for August. Following the Lowell Summer Series on August 29 he's now at the Rhythm & Roots Festival in Charlestown RI and on August 30 and LL Bean Summer Concert Series on August 31 in Freeport ME. If you could get him while he's in the area now it would probably have to be for Thursday August 28, 2008 We've seen him at the Capitol Center for the Performing Arts in Concord NH in the past and he's GREAT!

First off I want to thank you for booking Graham Parker. I saw him last year in Shirly, MA and it was a GREAT show. I highly recommend it to anyone looking for a great show to see.

I just bought a CD by a young artist named Melody Gardot. She's currently in Europe but she would be great at Tupelo.

I see people talking about Keb Mo'. I saw him at Berklee in Boston last year. Best show I've ever seen, other than Stevie Ray Vaughn in Lowell back in the 80's.

It's been awhile since there's been any string bands at the Tupelo - I think the last one was Old School Freight Train and that was a couple years ago - is there just no interest?

I did enjoy Hot Day at the Zoo when they were featured at open mic night awhile back. They played a triple bill at Milly's in Manchester (in February, I think) with The Verbs and a band from Virginia, Special Ed and the Short Bus. Something along those lines would be fantastic!

Two other possiibilities that come to mind are Hot Buttered Rum String Band, and the Mammals.
