Heather Maloney and Darlingside independently began their musical

careers in late 2009 in Northampton, MA, crossing paths only through

overlapping posters pinned up on cork boards across town and occasional

side-by-side blurbs in local music rags. Buoyed by the same robust arts

scene of the Pioneer Valley, both artists grew from regional headliners to

nationally touring acts in a few short years. In November of 2013, Maloney

and Darlingside teamed up for a tour out to the Midwest, and it did not

take long for them to realize that they had stumbled upon a powerful

combination. A feature in the New York Times of their cover of Joni

Mitchell's “Woodstock” soon followed, and a joint EP, the Woodstock EP,

was released by Signature Sounds on March 11th.

Heather Maloney is a western Massachusetts based artist who has

received numerous accolades for her startlingly soulful voice and

literate songwriting exploring themes of spirituality, transformation, and

impermanence. Critics are quickly discovering Maloney's talent with

No Depressionraving "Her music is riveting, her voice adventurous, her

lyrics thought- provoking...Maloney's expansive range can handle Ella

Fitzgerald-style jazz scat and adapt to Beatlesque pop or Joni Mitchell

folk...” while Blurt Magazine wrote "Heather Maloney is one of the most

talented tradition-based singer-songwriters I’ve heard in some time...the

writing is stunning."

Darlingside is a Massachusetts-based indie folk quartet. With four distinct

voices clustered around a single microphone, their tightly arranged tunes

draw from the unexpected, featuring strains of bluegrass, classical, and

barbershop. Accompanied by an arsenal of classical strings, guitars,

mandolin, and percussion, these four close friends swap instruments

from song to song, keeping audiences across the country on the edge of

their seats: "Darlingside are doing something new in pop music...ground

the Beach Boys, Beatles, Joni Mitchell, Pink Floyd, David Bowie, Talking

Heads, Prince, Phish and Radiohead didn’t cover” (The Boston Herald).

 

This show will be an unforgettable musical moment you wont want to miss!
