In 2017, electronic violinist Lindsey Stirling released Warmer in the Winter, her first holiday album, via Lindseystomp Music/Concord Records. This year, Lindsey followed that up with a deluxe edition of the album with five new songs. Once again, Lindsey has embarked on The Wanderland Tour over the holidays, and she performs at The Anthem on Friday, Dec. 14.
JD & The Straight Shot warmed up the crowd trickling in for Jewel’s Picking Up the Pieces Tour last week, April 7th, at the Lincoln Theatre.
Fancied as an Americana band (from New York, started in 2005) and fronted by James Dolan (aka JD), they also include Marc Copely (guitar, vocals), Bryron House (bass), and touring musicians Erin Slaver (violin) and JJ Appelton (guitar).
James Dolan (who just so happens to be the CEO of Cablevision and the owner of the New York Knicks) is quite the character indeed, he sauntered on stage sporting a red velvet jacket and told many a tale about his son, his songs and somehow managed to fit in a costume change to get into his ‘Ballyhoo’ character. Many of the tales were about songs featured in films like August: Osage County and Jane Got a Gun.
