Eric Phelps of River Rhapsody will be opening for Adler & Hearne. Eric is a singer-songwriter who has performed in hundreds of concerts across the US and UK. He will be playing with his 11 year old song, Elijah Rain, a drummer and performer since age three.
The First Friday Concert at COHO Series welcomes national recording artists Adler & Hearne Friday, August 10, 7:30 p.m. at Cherry Hill Co-Housing, 120 Pulpit Hill Road, Amherst, MA. This is an “unofficial” add-on to our series, hosted by our good friend and great songwriter, Eric Phelps, who also will be opening the show.
From Texas’ upper east side, award-winning singer-songwriters Lynn Adler and Lindy Hearne connect with audiences coast to coast. Their music is a signature blend of original folk, jazz and blues with deep Texas roots. With 12+ recordings and decades of touring between them, their repertoire is playful, poignant and poetic – including sparky love ballads, historically based tributes, children’s music, quirky story songs, modern-day spirituals, and anthems of justice and peace. Raised by musical families and nurtured by choirs through college, the two met in Nashville, and now pay it forward together in performances from listening-room venues, festivals and community events to churches, libraries and schools.
Lynn co-wrote the theme song for the hit PBS children’s TV series “Wishbone.” Her diverse writing background brings added experience to the duo’s workshops and presentations. Lindy sang in the famed Texas Boys Choir as a child, and for several years he and his band were Roy Clark’s backup group performing with Roy from Las Vegas to Hee-Haw to Carnegie Hall. How to describe Adler & Hearne’s music and vibe? Think ‘song circle’ between Johnny and June Cash, Antonio Carlos Jobim and Astrud Gilberto, and Gordon Lightfoot and Joni Mitchell.
