Description:

The title of Lake Street Dive’s Free Yourself Up is both an exhortation to listeners and a statement of purpose for the band. The songs have an infectious swagger, even when dealing with awkward breakups or the unsettled state of our world. Free Yourself Up is Lake Street Dive’s most confident album yet, seriously soulful and exuberantly rocking. And, in many ways, it is Lake Street Dive’s most intimate and collaborative, with the band itself taking over the production reins and working as a tightly knit unit to craft these ten songs. In addition, the quartet drafted touring keyboardist Akie Bermiss to join them in the studio, literally freeing the band up to explore a wider range of instrumental textures, construct more full-bodied arrangements, and build stacks of lively background harmonies.

On Free Yourself Up, the sound is influenced by late sixties-early seventies R&B, AM pop, and FM rock while the lyrics are informed more by contemporary events. The album opens with “Baby, Don’t Leave Me Alone With My Thoughts,” which envisions a lover acting as a “human shield” against the anxiety of our Twitter-ravaged age. It’s funny, sweet, a little angry, and definitely right up-to-the-minute in its sentiment. Singer Rachael Price says, “I thought about that song as the thesis of this record. It’s a disco-dance fun song but it’s also a person talking about needing comfort from another person, and it has a reference to the political climate.”

Who doesn’t fantasize about sitting in front of a fireplace (or gathering around Purple Crayon’s Stitching Circle!), in the dead of winter, knitting? Whether you’re completely new to the craft, have tried to learn to knit and failed, or simply want a refresher, this fun, four-week course is for you! Camille Daunno has been knitting since she was old enough to hold a pair of needles, and teaching folks—both kids and adults—how to knit for almost as long! (Not really, but 50 years is a pretty long time!) In the first two classes, Camille will cover the “mechanics” of knitting: how to cast on, knit, purl, increase, decrease, cast off, read a pattern, and understand knitting terms. After that, you’ll learn how to form a sweater stitch, garter stitch, and ribbing to knit a basic scarf and hat. For about the price of a night out, you’ll gain a skill that will not only last a lifetime, but is filled with endless creative possibilities! Best of all, after you “graduate,” you’ll be welcome to attend a FREE Stitching Circle at Purple Crayon! Sometimes dreams do come true! For more information, or to register, visit the Purple Crayon website: www.purplecrayonavl.com/workshops.

Description:

Kieran Kane has been referred to as "the godfather of Americana music" for good reason. His seminal work in The O'Kanes and Kane Welch Kaplin, as well as co-founding the independent label Dead Reckoning Records, laid the foundation for the contemporary world of Americana music. A successful solo artist, collaborator, and songwriter (with songs recorded by Alan Jackson, John Prine, Emmylou Harris, and many more), Kieran is a musician's musician: his playing is always understated, always groove-oriented, and always serving the song.If Rayna Gellert seems a preternaturally gifted songwriter, its because shes seen farther into the old songs than most. Growing up in a musical family, she turned to Appalachian old-time music at a young age, becoming a prodigious fiddler and leading a new revival of American stringband music through her work with the acclaimed roots band Uncle Earl. An in-demand collaborator, she has toured and recorded with artists such as Scott Miller, Abigail Washburn, Toubab Krewe, and Robyn Hitchcock. Kieran and Rayna first met, fittingly, at San Francisco's celebrated Hardly Strictly Bluegrass Festival, which led to their cowriting songs for Kieran's recent album, Unguarded Moments (Dead Reckoning). They joined forces again for Rayna's 2017 release, Workin's Too Hard (StorySound Records), which they also co-produced. Their first duo album, The Ledges, was released in February on Dead Reckoning Records. Fans of either artist will recognize the musical kindred-spiritedness in their restrained and roots-oriented approach to both songs and arrangements.
