Winter/Spring 2013 Schedule
Tuesday, January 22
In the summer of 2010, Tim Harrington and Paul Wright were playing for spare change in Boston’s Faneuil Hall Marketplace. In two short years since, Tall Heights has headlined packed listening rooms across New England, toured down to Austin, TX to showcase at South By Southwest Music Festival, and performed alongside national acts like David Wilcox, Ryan Montbleau, and Andrew Belle.
Tall Heights released Rafters, in September 2011, and sold 700 copies in the first 7 days. While many artists in their genre had of late retreated to the wilderness to record, Tall Heights stayed in the city. These five tracks were recorded over a few sweltering months in a small bedroom of their Boston apartment with an SM58 microphone, an iMac, a guitar, a cello and their voices. And, although there was neither cabin nor lake, Rafters spread across their Thoreauvian folk scene like brushfire, with over 4,000 copies sold to date.
With their sophomore release, The Running of the Bulls EP (October, 2012), Tall Heights responded to their fans’ growing hunger to download and relive the enchanting, bottomless ambiance of their live performance. Over four days at Q Division Studios in Somerville, MA, Tim and Paul shut their eyes, breathed and performed, recording their most haunting material to date. Thematically, the EP’s narrative voice, quiet and bold, continually locates the artist as a vigilant figure on a fast-paced and ever changing landscape. Fittingly so, The Running of the Bulls EP, humble and live, has quickly placed Tall Heights as an ever stronger force on this robust folk scene amongst the nation’s most esteemed new artists.

With her roots in South Carolina and her feet grounded in Athens, GA, Kyshona Armstrong has set off on the road of full time touring artist this past year. Independently releasing her third Album, Home Again, Kyshona has armed herself with guitar and bags to play anywhere from the bayous of Louisiana to the Minnesota Red River Valley.
Tuesday, April 16
Every time Kurt Scobie sits down at the keys, the power of his expressive lyrics and percussive piano style have a magnetic effect on the entire room. The lyrics strike a familiar chord but carry a refreshing tone, and the catchy melodies enable listeners to sing along, even after hearing his songs for the first time. On and off the stage, Kurt is consistently friendly and respectfully honest.
Kurt Scobie lives in Atlanta, GA, but he is most at home when he is on the road and meeting new people. Since 2008 he has performed over 400 shows, including seven NACA showcases, and a performance for the Atlanta Braves. Kurt has also shared the stage with The Civil Wars, Matthew Perryman Jones, and Montell Jordan. Influences such as Mat Kearney, Dave Matthews and Jason Mraz have helped Kurt create a sound that is winning over audiences across the country.
In the rare moments when he is not creating music you will probably catch Kurt Scobie reading an amazing book, drinking an amazing craft beer, eating amazing sushi, or heading out for a long (amazing) run.
