Rising Stars in Folk: Marina Evans & Alice Howe











Friday, March 3: Singer/songwriters Alice Howe and Marina Evans join forces for a night of original acoustic music at The Burren. The Boston-born songwriters have traveled far and wide with their music — in Alice‘s case, to the western shores of Seattle, and in Marina’s case, across the Atlantic to Florence, Italy (Marina will be joined onstage by Bernardo Baglioni, Italian-born guitarist and producer, and, incidentally, her husband!). On this rare occasion the two songbirds  find themselves back in Boston at the same time, and are eager to share their new music — featuring sweet, sultry vocals, insightful lyrics, and unusual melodies — with a hometown crowd.

the future of music

Last week, I was relieved to skip over bitter political reporting in the news and instead learn about the Future of Music Coalition (FMC), a non-profit organization dedicated to fostering a diverse musical culture, compensating artists fairly, and satisfying music consumers in the digital age. FMC tackles a broad spectrum of issues that are crucial to the survival of the independent artist – quite literally in the case of FMC’s Health Insurance Navigation Tool for musicians (HINT) – and on November 13, they’re bringing the discussion to Washington. The annual Future of Music Summit will focus on the intersection of music, technology, and policy, and will bring artists, fans, entrepreneurs, and politicians together in an open dialogue about where we’re at, and where we’re headed. Register to attend (free!), volunteer, or just learn more about the Future of Music Summit here.
