Lovesick & Heartbroken

Every day’s a struggle since you’ve been gone
Every day’s a struggle since you’ve been gone
I’ve got love to burn, when you return
Every day’s a struggle since you’ve been gone

My heart is giving up on you
My heart is giving up on you
Reach out for me, and turn my key
My heart is giving up on you

You’ve been on this journey two weeks too long
You’ve been on this journey two weeks too long
Why’d you have to roam so far from home
You’ve been on this journey two weeks too long

I can’t think of anything else but you
I can’t think of anything else but you
You’re on my mind, most all of the time
I can’t think of anything else but you

Heartless ~ Adrien Reju

On Sunday, September 22, Tim and I made an impulsive decision to go to the cd release concert for Dawn Hiatt’s Goodnight Boots at World Cafe Live.  We knew that Adrien would be providing backing vocals for Dawn, as well as performing a few of her own tunes.  It was a stage full of talent, including Philadelphia’s Brad Hinton who will be joining Adrien at Chestnut House Concerts on October 18, 2013.  Brad just released another cd, Whippoorwill and I was impressed with his strong vocals, song lyrics and …yodeling abilities. If you’d like to hear both Adrien Reju and Brad Hinton at Chestnut House Concerts on Friday 10/18/13,  please reserve a seat by calling/texting 717-940-9311 or shoot an email to Tim at tlehman9@gmail.com.

First House Concert in the 2012-2013 Series

Chestnut House Concerts is thrilled to announce the first concert in the 2012-2013 series.  The Barn Birds are touring the Northeast and will be stopping by Lancaster, Pennsylvania for a house concert on Wednesday, October 3, 2012.  The Barn Birds are talented musicians Jonathan Byrd and Chris Kokesh.  The following brownpaperticket write up is from a Barn Bird concert in April.

JONATHAN BYRD is “one of the top 50 songwriters of the last 50 years,” says Rich Warren of WFMT in the Chicago Tribune.  Scott Alarik of the Boston Globe says, “This rootsy North Carolinian may be the most buzzed-about new songwriter in folkdom. He displays John Prine’s gift for stark little songs that tell big, complex stories, Guy Clark’s lean melodicism, Lyle Lovett’s wry mischief, and Bill Morrissey’s knack for the revealing image.”  Byrd grew up singing in the Southern Baptist church, where his father preached and his mother played piano. After four years in the Navy, he returned to home to play in rock bands. It was at an old-time fiddle festival in the mountains of southwest Virginia where his writing began to change. Assimilating the sounds of southern traditional music, Byrd wrote new songs in an ancient style. After 10 years as a full-time touring songwriter and 7 acclaimed albums, it seems this native of Cackalacky is getting the attention he deserves.

CHRIS KOKESH is no newcomer to the folk music scene.  In her 14 years with the all-woman quartet Misty River, she became a veteran of stages including the Strawberry Music Festival (CA), the Walnut Valley Festival (KS), Sisters Folk Festival (OR), and Wintergrass (WA) and helped create the signature vocal blend of this Northwest favorite.  In July 2010, October Valentine debuted on the Folk DJ charts at #20, and Chris’s stunning songwriting, crystalline vocals, tasty fiddle and solid guitar distinguish her as a stand-alone talent.  On stage Kokesh brings songs to life with a transparency that draws audiences in.  She reveals the inner workings of her heart with grace and an unexpectedly wry sense of humor.  Jeff Douglas of Oregon Public Broadcasting says, “Chris Kokesh is writing songs that stand up with the best.  Keep an ear out for this emerging talent.”

Jonathan Byrd and Chris Kokesh met in 2007 at the Americana Song Academy, a week-long songwriting school in Sisters, Oregon.  After teaching at the Academy, Jonathan went on to play the Sisters Folk Festival where he invited Chris to play with him.  They played two encores, and Jonathan was invited back to play again the next year, a rare honor bestowed by popular vote among the festival attendees.  The duo, dubbed the Barn Birds, has since toured the Pacific Northwest and Midwest and recorded an as-yet unreleased album.
