#Live #Recording: @roriekelly and Mariann Megna #LiveOnTheFarm May 9, 2015

This is a recording of the second "Live On The Farm" house concert we had at the Lantern Sound Recording Rig. We've been behind on the production of video/audio from this house concert series; thankfully, that's because this summer has been busy on the performance and recording fronts. The video portion of this show is now finally moving into edit. Here's some audio selections from that show. Jean Schroeder joins Mariann on percussion, while Claire Raby joins Rorie on harmony vocals.



Here's the recording from our first show featuring ROB EUROPE and BRYAN GALLO.


Our next "Live On the Farm" installment is
SAT SEPT 12 2015 8pm.

    LIVE AT THE FARM #HouseConcert No. 5: SAT AUG 8 Libby Johnson / Lynn Blue & Mick Hargreaves

    8PM Saturday August 8th, 2015 The Lantern Sound Recording Rig presents the fifth installment of "LIVE ON THE FARM", a house concert series and ongoing recording session all rolled into one, taking place in a historical farmhouse tucked away in Long Island's Pine Barrens. Doors open at 8pm, Music at 8:30pm.


     Libby Johnson

    Libby Johnson started recording her follow-up to 2006’s acclaimed "Annabella," between the trails (or trials) of living as a troubadour artist, moving from New York to a rural setting and back again, family life and various activist projects. In January 2010 Perfect View was released on the Wrong Records label. Sometimes wistful in tone, Perfect View’s sweeping moods encompass such life changes.

    “Spellbinding” -Philadelphia Inquirer “...beautiful, bittersweet...her songs move seamlessly from searching and yearning to bruised and ominous....” -New York Daily News “Johnson’s vocals are versatile- alternately tough and tender, changing as the song demands, and offering something to please every listener” -Performing Songwriter “...an unexpected treasure....one of the best debuts of the year...”Steve Greenlee, Boston Globe



    Lynn Blue and Mick Hargreaves brand-new vocal duet venture has delighted audiences wherever they've performed locally in 2015. This will be their first venture into the studio.

    Expect some surprises!

    LINDSAY ELLYN BAND http://lindsayellyn.com/ 
    "I was always one to lend a hand whenever I could, but it wasn't until about two-and-a-half years ago that I made a decision to devote a significant chunk of my life to service work," recalls Lindsay Ellyn, who works with shelters and charities. "I realized that, aside from music, that's what makes me most happy, and I personally believe it's our duty as people to serve each other." Lindsay's new EP, Out of Road, dropped May 2015. Produced by Dean Miller, the project features famed musicians including Chad Cromwell, Dan Dugmore, Steve Nathan and others. After 12 years in NYC, she now resides in Nashville, Tennessee.




    PETE MANCINI
    http://www.butchersblind.com/

    "[Play for the Films] reminds me of my favorite parts of Wilco and the Jayhawks. I have it in the player in my car and just keep playing it." - Iain Matthews (Fairport Convention). Pete Mancini is the songwriter and frontman of Butchers Blind, "a band that plays American Music. Their sound hearkens back to a simpler time before Rock & Roll was divided into a million small sub-genres and songwriting was still the order of the day.  One may be able to hear the influences of Uncle Tupelo, Gram Parsons and The Band in their songs, but the real magic is how they blend these ingredients into a musical recipe all their own."

    Live on the Farm: #HouseConcert SAT 05/09/15 7p: RORIE KELLY, MARIANN MEGNA




    The Lantern Sound Recording Rig
    and JTiL Productions present:

    "Live on The Farm" House Concert
    SATURDAY MAY 9th 2015 - 7pm
    From the upcoming "One Guitar" effort:
       
    RORIE KELLY http://www.roriekelly.com/

    MARIANN MEGNA http://mariannmegna.com/



    Rorie Kelly
    Rorie Kelly is a small redheaded tornado of sound. Her aggressive acoustic guitar style complements raw, powerhouse vocals to pack a serious punch. First-time listeners often comment, "I can't believe that voice came out of that body." Rorie has been making music since her teenage years and was strongly influenced by the tell-all, stream-of-consciousness songwriting style of the 90s. "Growing up I was listening to Liz Phair, Alanis Morissette, and Ben Folds Five alongside Joni Mitchell and The Beatles," she says. "That's where my foundation comes from as a musician." Over the years, Rorie has been compared to Janis Joplin and Alanis Morissette for her high-powered vocals, and Joni Mitchell and Sarah Bareilles for her catchy-confessional brand of songwriting.

    Mariann Megna
    "I love a good melody, I'm a classic that way, and old enough now to sing the blues with intention", says Mariann Megna. Her 'Grey Matters' release, available on Itunes, CDbaby and Amazon.com, was preceded by her first two recorded efforts, 'Still' with Nancy Remkus, and 'Trails',  a solo compilation. Mariann is part of the house ensemble called "Country Roast" at the Monday-weekly "East End Opry" (Fresh in Bridgehampton), featuring Klyph Black, James Benard, Randolph Hudson and often a special guest or two.
