PATTERSON BARRETT:

 

Patterson Barrett is best known as a multi-instrumentalist who has worked on albums by Jerry Jeff Walker, Buddy Miller, Jim Lauderdale and Gurf Morlix (and on live shows by Chuck Berry, Al Kooper and Nanci Griffith), but he is an accomplished singer-songwriter in his own right. His new album, “Give ‘Em What They Want,” for example, includes witty songs such as “The Elephant in the Room” (with Lauderdale on vocal harmonies) and introspective ballads such as “If I Only Knew How.” The first single, “3 Young Alleycats,” finds Barrett, Miller and Morlix singing about their days knocking around Austin as obscure singer-songwriters. Barrett cites Neil Young, Poco and the Flying Burrito Brothers as his early influences, as well as soul stalwarts such as Sam and Dave and Marvin Gaye. His music has been compared to John Hiatt, The Band (whose song “Sleeping” he lovingly covers), and Ryan Adams.

BRIAN LANGLINAIS:

 

Brian Langlinais grew up in Lafayette, Louisiana, and there he learned the Gulf Coast country-soul sound that mixes Southern storytelling, R&B dance grooves, hillbilly singing and the Cajun/Creole sense of syncopation. That sound comes through not only in his singing and guitar playing but also in his songwriting, especially on his third album, “Right Hand Road.” The recording “makes a joyful noise,” declares the Blues Rock Review, “with some down-home infectious riffs and vocals that wend their way down not just into your hearts and souls but also down into your bones. You feel these rhythms before the power of the lyrics hit you, and by then you’re already hypnotized and dancing across the floor with Langlinais and his band of merry musicians.”

GEOFFREY HIMES:

Though he is best known as a music critic for the Washington Post, Smithsonian Magazine, Baltimore City Paper, Nashville Scene, Jazz Times, No Depression, Paste and many more, Geoffrey Himes is also a longtime singer-songwriter who has co-written songs with Si Kahn, Fred Koller, Walter Egan, Sonia Rutstein, Billy Kemp, Stephen Wade, Jim Patton, Tony Denikos, Alan MacEwan, James Von Lenz, Ed Pettersen, Andrew Grimm, Bob Kannenberg and others. He recently formed a new trio, North East Rising Sun, with singer Lea Gilmore and violinist Willem Elsevier. This month Himes will premiere a new song: “The Luckiest Man.”

WILLEM ELSEVIER:

Equally versed in the written and the improvised, Willem moves easily between performing with an orchestra at Lincoln Center and Americana groups at An Die Musik.  During his six years co-hosting the monthly Roots Café shows with Geoffrey Himes, Elsevier has accompanied such luminaries as Lea Gilmore, Si Kahn, Amy Rigby, Kevin Gordon, Phil Wiggins, Zane Campbell, Ken Kolodner,  Victoria Vox and Billy Kemp.  A founding member of the Baltimore rock band Love Riot, Willem's sophisticated solos helped the band beat out 25,000 other bands to win the Yamaha's international Music Quest competition in Japan in 1994. The band recorded with producer Eric Ambel and performed at venues such as celebrated performances at New York's Bottom Line, Washington's 9:30 Club, L.A.’s House of Blues and New Orleans’ Tipatina's.

AN DIE MUSIK:

An Die Musik is Baltimore’s finest listening room. With 84 armchairs, great acoustics, the city’s best piano and a lobby bar, this performance space above the venerable record store is as intimate as it is inviting. The street parking meters are free on Sundays; the venue offers discount coupons for the area’s ethnic restaurants, and the 5 pm start time keeps the afternoon free while allowing a good night's sleep before the work week. Here, at last, is a music experience designed for adults.
