Ben Cosgrove ≈ March 29th / 7:30pm

Instrumental music about landscape and place.

ben-cosgrove

Ben Cosgrove is a traveling composer, pianist, and multi-instrumentalist from New England. He performs regularly all over the country, writes scores for films, plays, radio, and television, and has produced several well-received albums of original instrumental work that straddles a line between folk and classical music. His “electric and exhilarating” live performances are at once dazzling and intimate: music that has been described as “stunning” and as “compelling and powerful,” all presented with warmth, honesty, and “the easy familiarity of a troubadour.” From 2012 to 2014 Ben served as the Signet Artist-in-Residence Fellow at Harvard University, and he is a recipient of a St. Botolph Club Foundation Emerging Artist Award. He has also held residencies and fellowships at Acadia National Park, Isle Royale National Park, Middlebury College, the Vermont Studio Center, the Schmidt Ocean Institute, and the Sitka Center for Art and Ecology, and he spent a year as the artist in residence at White Mountain National Forest in New Hampshire and Maine.

Arlen Roth (born October 30, 1952 in New York, U.S.) is an American guitarist, recording artist, performer, tutor and author. His first solo album won the Montreux Critics’ Award for Best Instrumental Album of the Year in 1978. He was a regular columnist for Guitar Player magazine from 1982 to 1992. He has performed and recorded with artists such as Bob Dylan, Danny Gatton, John Entwistle, John Prine, Kate Taylor, James Taylor, Livingston Taylor, John Sebastian, Rick Wakeman, Paul Simon (as well as Simon and Garfunkel), Ry Cooder, David Lindley, Sonny Landreth, Levon Helm, Bill Kirchen, Duane Eddy, Steve Morse, Albert Lee and Phoebe Snow. Roth is a Telecaster enthusiast, and has written the book Masters of the Telecaster, which details the techniques and licks of many famous Telecaster guitar players. As a solo artist Roth performs frequently with his younger daughter, Lexie Roth, a recording artist, performer and songwriter in her own right. He was greatly influenced by Clarence White of The Byrds’ string bending style, but at the age of 14, he did not know White had invented a “B-string bender” for his Telecaster, so Roth developed a new style of doing this with fingers alone. He thus innovated many string-bending styles on the guitar, simulating a “pedal steel” guitar. He is also an innovator in the use of “harmonics” within guitar playing.

Holy Golden

holy-golden

Holy Golden is the multifaceted musical world of Leslie Schott and Andrew Valenti. From euphoric dream-pop to lo-fi garage rock, their sound is refreshingly dynamic while maintaining an unparalleled specificity. Holy Golden’s creative process is a labyrinthian breadcrumb trail fueled by their deepest sorrows and brightest fantasies, which ultimately leads them towards their imaginative kingdom of sound.

The two met serendipitously during a full moon lunar eclipse on the island of Martha’s Vineyard. They recorded their first two albums in Los Angeles and Detroit and are now recording their upcoming album from a haunted ballroom in Rhode Island.
