Roots Cafe Singer-Songwriter Series

Amy Rigby
plays old and new songs in the round with
singer-songwriter Geoffrey Himes
and violinist Willem Elsevier


 

AMY RIGBY has made a life out of writing and singing about life. With bands Last Roundup and the Shams in eighties NYC East Village to her solo debut Diary Of A Mod Housewife out of nineties Williamsburg; through a songwriting career in 2000s Nashville and during the past decade with duo partner Wreckless Eric, she’s released records on visionary independent labels Rounder, Matador, Signature Sounds and reborn Stiff Records as well as her and Eric’s own Southern Domestic Recordings. “The Old Guys,” her first solo album in a dozen years, measures the weight of heroes, home; family, friends and time. Philip Roth and Bob Dylan, CD/cassette players, touring, the wisdom of age and Walter White, groupies, Robert Altman, egg creams and mentors are paid tribute. Twelve songs written unmistakably by Amy and recorded by Wreckless Eric in upstate New York, “The Old Guys” is the sound of a good girl grown up, never giving up. Her record “Dancing With Joey Ramone” is a staple of Little Steven’s Underground Garage radio show, and kitchen sink anthem “Are We Ever Gonna Have Sex Again?” is played in cafes and bars around the country by real life mod housewives and husbands.  www.amyrigby.com

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, 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, Ed Pettersen, Andrew Grimm, Bob Kannenberg and others. This month Himes will premiere a new song: “I Fell in Love (On Boston Street).”   http://www.facebook.com/RootsCafeBaltimore

WILLEM ELSEVIER is a conservatory trained violinist who has found success in both the classical and jazz worlds. He is best known, however, for his role in Love Riot, the Baltimore rock band that recorded with producer Eric Ambel and toured widely. Elsevier’s sophisticated solos helped the band beat out 2,500 other bands from around the globe to win the Yamaha Music Quest competition  in Japan in 1994. Elsevier has also recorded with such acts as Billy Kemp and Milkshake. Since 2012, he has been a performer and songwriter in a duo with Geoffrey Himes.
