Eilen Jewell

If you’ve been following the doings at the Narrows, you know that we claim to have discovered one of the hottest up-and-coming-young-Boston-area-based performers on the national Americana music scene, Eilen Jewell. Her debut album has charted nationally, and she’s created a buzz in these parts with her understated take on ‘cosmic American music,’ to, I think, borrow a phrase from Gram Parsons.

‘Fallon Copperworks’

This exhibit features a coppersmith who morphs raw metal into the familiar. The Opening Reception is May 31, 2007 from 6:00 ‘9:00 p.m. All are cordially invited to this free event. Refreshments will be served. Jen Fallon is a freelance coppersmith who uses traditional hand tools, taking raw sheets of copper and morphing them into familiar images. She has shown her work at several locations in the Southcoast area. Over the last year she has participated in several certificate programs, including Blacksmithing I and the creation and construction of weathervanes. Jen is always willing to experiment and learn new techniques.

Sugar Ray and the Blutones Big Band

Sugar Ray Norcia was the front dude for Roomful of Blues in the early to mid-1990s, also playing harp and writing tunes. So you got the drift. The ‘Bluetones Big Band’ consists of members of the Bluetones plus piano and horns–making sounds great to swing dance to. We’re talking jump blues with a solid down beat, baby.
