Songwriters in the Round
Saturday, April 18 ~ 5 pm

This special evening will showcase the talents of these four immensely talented songwriters:  Guy Capecelatro III, songwriter & performer writes his mostly abbreviated songs, which he lovingly describes as “little story vehicles” – “like a paper boat. Sliding into the ocean. On fire.”  Mary Lou Lord, guitarist, vocalist & songwriter broke into the indie rock scene in 1994 on the Kill Rock Stars label.  Lord’s interest in music started as a teenager when she worked as a DJ for a college radio station in the Boston area. Mark Schwaber is a professional musician (of nearly 25 years) who has toured 19 countries.  Mark has also released music under the monikers Hospital and Home, as well as two eponymous releases “Two Years and Thirty Minutes” in 2004, and “The Killing Card” in 2006.  Drew O’Doherty has a solo project with a handful of musicians that accompany him on some shows. Drew also plays by himself. He has an album called ‘Starts’ (2006) available on his Bandcamp.  Portsmouth Singer Songwriter Festival at The Music Hall Loft. The Music Hall Loft, 131 Congress St., Portsmouth   FMI about these artists or to order tickets, call (603) 436-2400.

Citizen Cope
Saturday, April 18 ~ (8 pm opener William Fitzsimmons) 9:30 pm

Citizen Cope’s sounds are southern rural, big sky lonely, concrete urban, & painfully romantic. From the get-go, he introduced his audiences to a world of musical worry with his breakout song “Sideways,” that was covered by Carlos Santana. His motivation has always been to make music in front of people, & it has won him a vast audience in America & abroad. Opener William Fitzsimmons’ easy voice, which falls somewhere between the breathy earnestness of Sufjan Stevens & the steady, deep water thrum of Iron & Wine’s Sam Beam, has a knack for crafting incredibly measured, deeply personal, largely finger-picked folk confections that flirt with adult-oriented pop without losing any of their artisan luster.  Portsmouth Singer Songwriter Festival at The Music Hall Historical Theater. Prices:  $48; $38  Music Hall Historic Theater, 28 Chestnut St, Portsmouth  FMI, call (603) 436-2400 or www.themusichall.org.
