Tattletale Saints

In August I communicated with Rachel Baiman of 10 String Symphony about the possibility of having them perform at Chestnut House Concerts. Her response was “I wonder if you might consider doing a co-bill? Our tour this spring in the US will be co-bill with our friends and amazing New Zealand musicians Tattletale Saints.  They just recorded an album in Nashville produced by Tim O’Brien and will be releasing it in the US in March.  I can’t say enough good things about their music, they are also a duo but play guitar and upright bass so it makes for a nice, complementary co-bill.” 

Consider it?  What an honor!

The 48th Vodafone New Zealand Music Awards were held January 26, 2014 and Tattletale Saints took home the Tui for the Best Folk Album 2014. The album, ‘How Red Is the Blood’ was recorded at Butcher Shoppe Recording Studios in Nashville, TN with renowned engineer David Ferguson and was produced by Grammy award winner Tim O’Brien. The Tattletale Saints duo is described as a “masterful blend of Americana fused with jazz, soul and pop” and is made up of Cy Winstanley voice/guitar/harmonica and Vanessa McGowan voice/double bass.

This coming Friday (March 28th) we have a house show with Mando Planet.

One week later on Friday, April 4th, we have our first House Concert Co-Bill with 10 String Symphony and Tattletale Saints. Each band will perform separately but will also do some songs together.

For all house concert events – Potluck at 6, Show at 7.

RSVP by calling/texting 717-940-9311 or send an email to Tim at tlehman9@gmail.com.

Vintage Dress

Nora Jane found this dress in Vinton, Va. Maybe she’ll have time to shop at Mommalicious or Hinesite while in Lancaster.  To read more about Nora Jane’s vintage collection check out her blog.

PerfumeThe Wild Ponies is a Nashville based band fronted by Doug & Telisha Williams.  Doug plays guitar, Telisha plays bass and Jake Winebrenner joins them on percussion.  Wild Ponies will be at Chestnut House Concerts on Friday, January 17, 2014.  Their 2012 album Ghost of the Knoxville Girl inspired Poison Apple Apothecary of Atlanta, Georgia to create a perfume by the same name.

Vanessa McGowan, vocalist & double bass player for the New Zealand based duo Tattletale Saints is wearing a dress made by Papercup and sold at S’wonderful Boutique, a family owned clothing & gift store in Wellington, New Zealand.  The store was built from the ground up by mother & daughter Frances & Virginia McMullen and model/musician Vanessa remarked that “S’wonderful are amazing talented people, the clothes are all 100% sweatshop free, ethically and lovingly made in New Zealand and we feel really good about promoting them. This gorgeous dress is super comfortable and flattering and if you want one of your own, here’s where you head….”
