Lisa Bastoni and Naomi Sommers
March 25, 2017 @ 8:00 pm - 10:00 pm$12
Lisa Bastoni and Naomi Sommers are two dynamic, accomplished songwriters in the Americana/folk genre. Accompanying one another on multiple instruments, as well as honey-sweet, close-harmony singing, they will play two sets of original music, interwoven with some of the traditional songs that have inspired them.
Lisa Bastoni had a thriving singer-songwriter career going until she took a break to start a family with her husband, novelist Christopher Boucher. Now, after nearly ten years away from writing and performing, Bastoni returns to music with THE WISHING HOUR (Jan. 2017), produced by Grammy-nominated songwriter and producer Felix McTeigue (Lori McKenna/Anais Mitchell/Martin Sexton). The songs have been described as “Americana of the highest order, think along the lines of Gretchen Peters or Patty Griffin, with high quality musos to match.” (Maverick-UK)
Recorded in Nashville and produced by Jim Rooney, GENTLE AS THE SUN is Naomi Sommers’ most recent album, featuring Naomi’s trusted family and friends, and released on her Father’s American Melody label. “Naomi Sommers is a dreamer’s find…a lamp lighting the way to the most heartfelt songs I’ve heard in a long time… Deep, rich, melodic; the tunes carry you to a wonderful place and her warm voice touches parts of you long forgotten or long ignored.” Virginia MacIsaac – Rambles, a cultural magazine
