Bound for Glory, 8:00 to 11:00, Alternatives Library, Anabel Taylor Hall

Sunday, September 30, 2018 at 8:00pm to 11:00pm

Alternatives Library, Anabel Taylor Hall

AUG. 26      TRAONACH.  We’ll start our fall series of live shows with the Celtic band Traonach.  Jigs and reels, and songs as well as tunes.  It’s an Irish session writ large.  Traonach will get your toes tapping.  They just plain have fun playing their music, and the fun is very contagious.


SEPT. 2       TRACY GRAMMER.  Tracy is a fine songwriter and a collector of other people’s songs as well.  She’s a magical performer.  She’s making her second visit to Bound for Glory, but the first one was back in 2001, with her late partner Dave Carter.  Join her as she spins her delightful web.


SEPT. 9        HUGH O’DOHERTY.  Hugh is a really neat songwriter.  He tells stories about real people and their lives.  He’s full of good humor and will make you smile.  Just of moment later, he’ll make you think.  We’re pleased to have him make his first appearance on Bound for Glory.


SEPT. 16      JOHN ROBERTS.  John Roberts sings songs in the English folk tradition.  He’s both expert at the serious long ballads of old, and full of good humor.  John has a huge repertoire, and we’ll never know what to expect until it happens.  Fifty years ago John was a big part of the Ithaca folk scene.  He’s back again.


SEPT. 23      BOBBY HENRIE AND AARON LIPP.  Boy, can these guys play.  And sing.  Flatpicking extraordinaire.  Bobby is inspired by the late Doc Watson.  Aaron is inspired by… Aaron.  They really respect the American folk tradition, and the country songs of many decades ago.


SEPT. 30      LARRY KAPLAN.  Larry Kaplan writes songs that other people sing and record, and many of them don’t know where they come from.  Larry Kaplan is a hero, a writer of strong songs that travel before him.  He’s both laid back and charming, and his second Bound for Glory performance will be a very special show.


On OCTOBER 7, Bound for Glory will be Albums from the Studios, as Cornell takes Fall Break, and we’re following the Cornell calendar. Give Phil a call at 607-273-2121.  There will be seven more live shows in the late Fall, starting OCTOBER 14, including visits from CLIFF EBERHARDT AND LOUISE MOSRIE, THE HEATHER PIERSON TRIO, DEBRA COWAN, COSY SHERIDAN, and more.  Details to follow.
