Susan Cattaneo is one of Bostons most respected songwriters. A powerful singer and sophisticated writer, Susan combines vivid storytelling with a modern songwriter’s spin. Respectful of tradition, but not bound by it, Susan blends rock, folk and blues with a healthy dose of country. Call it New England Americana with a twang.

Susan's latest album, Haunted Heart was released in January 2014 to national acclaim. It was voted one of Alternate Roots Top 100 Albums of the Year, and won Album of the Year at the Limelight Music Awards.

In addition to being a solo performing artist, Susan has been teaching songwriting at the Berklee College of Music for over 10 years, and has recently joined the Western Mass trio The Boxcar Lilies.

“Ultimately it’s rare to find an artist so willing to invest her psyche so fully into her songs, but the return on Cattaneo's commitment also makes for a compelling set of songs.” American Songwriter

“She's able to blend gritty semi-confessional bluesy sounds with poetic conversational lyrics.” Austin Daze

“Her voice is somewhere between national treasure and weapon of mass destruction.”  Daily Vault

Tickets are $15 in advance and $18 at the door and are available at BrownPaperTickets.com. For more information on the band see susancattaneo.com for more information.

Sisters Katryna and Nerissa Nield grew up singing folk songs in the kitchen and back seat of the family car.

“I remember I wrote my first song that I was really proud of when I was 13,” said Nerissa, “and right away I had a harmony for it, so I dragged Katryna out of her room and taught her the harmony.  It was instinct - I knew that my sister should be there.”

In the 90’s the Nields was a folk-rock band, with drums and electric guitars, and toured nationally.  These days it is usually two voices and one acoustic guitar.

Now well into their third decade of performing, the Nields released their 17th album in 2015.  Once again they present beautifully crafted songs, delivered with passion and grace.

“Guitarist Nerissa has written the clear-eyed, literary lyrics and sister Katryna has provided a gloriously eccentric vocal delivery. Lots of backward glances and relationship foibles punctuate this quiet collection, which is ideal for harmony addicts and dreamers alike.” - Billboard Magazine.

Tickets are $18 at the door, or $15 in advance at BrownPaperTickets.com. For more information, see Nields.com.
