Could there be something in the name "Jeffrey" that brings out the talent in a singer/songwriter? Probably not, but we're overwhelming pleased to welcome these two gentlemen as the first pair of shows in our Spring Series at the Charles River Museum of Industry & Innovation.

Joining us on March 7th, Jeffrey Martin is a literate man of integrity and his poetically plainspoken songs reflect his nature. In a sandy baritone, Martin sings of gritty, hard-won truths and blue collar characters who somehow find a way to hang on to hope and the promise of redemption. Tickets available here: bit.ly/2Tuaecj

In two decades on the road Jeffrey Foucault has become one of the most distinctive voices in American music, refining a sound instantly recognizable for its simplicity and emotional power, a decidedly Midwestern amalgam of blues, country, rock’n’roll, and folk.

Lula Wiles wrapped up an amazing 2nd SHIFT season last night with a performance which had to be one the very best we've ever had at the Museum. If you missed this night, then you really need to make sure to check out these astonishing ladies in 2019, as their album "What Will We Do," coming January 25 on the legendary Folkways label is going to catapult them to a very deserved next level.

As for the 2nd SHIFT, stay tuned for announcements on what WE have in store for you all in 2019. We can't say much more yet, but please be assured that we aim to please! Cheers, until then!

Lula Wiles - Love Gone Wrong (live at Ear Trumpet Labs)

Coming to the Charles River Museum of Industry & Innovation on December 13th, tickets available here: bit.ly/2zuoOIS

It doesn't get much sweeter, more heartfelt, or one damn bit better than this.

Lula Wiles channel so many American music traditions, but make it a sound all their own. Their second album, WHAT WILL WE DO, comes out next month on the prestigious and legendary Smithsonian Folkways Recordings (a better home for their music you would be hard pressed to find).

This is our final show of the 2018 2nd Shift Season and it is definitely not one you will want to miss.

The wonderfully talented ladies of Lula Wiles will be joining us Thursday, December 13th, at our final Fall '18 show at the Charles River Museum of Industry & Innovation. We've been following Lula Wiles for a number of years and have fallen in love with their crystalline voices and harmonies, their energetic and spirited musicianship, and their heartfelt songwriting.

Drawing from the wealth of American musical tradition, with nods to country, folk, blues, bluegrass, gospel, and old time, they have emerged with a sound that can only be called all their own, and it is spectacular!

Check out the singles from their latest album, "What Will We Do," to be released January 25th on the legendary Smithsonian Folkways Recordings label: spoti.fi/2ADdHx9 and come by the Museum to hear them live! Tickets available here: bit.ly/2zuoOIS
