Joe Crookston Livestream ~ 7:30pm ET ~ https://www.facebook.com/events/367234371117872/  streaming at https://focusmusic.org/

Lady Lamb (actually at) The Word Barn ~ 2:00 to 3:30pm ~ https://portsmouthnhtickets.com/events/lady-lamb-live-in-the-word-barn-meadow-11-14-2020 ~ Lady Lamb is the stage name used by Aly Spaltro, a singer, songwriter and producer whose music is a beguiling and imaginative fusion of folk, pop, and indie rock.

Spaltro was born in Portsmouth, New Hampshire in 1989. She spent the majority of her childhood in the Southwest with a three year stint in Germany before relocating to Brunswick, Maine with her family in 2003. A serious film enthusiast, she took a job at the local video store, Bart & Greg's DVD Explosion, during a gap year before entering film school. Spaltro was working the closing shift, and with the permission of the owners, she used the space as a makeshift music studio after hours.

In 2010 she moved to Brooklyn, NY and was eventually approached by Ba Da Bing Records to record an album. In 2013 Ripely Pine became Lady Lamb's first nationally distributed release. The album earned enthusiastic reviews and led to extensive touring in the United States, Europe, and the United Kingdom.

She jumped to Mom + Pop Records for her next full-length album, 2015's 'AFTER.' It landed on the Billboard rock, independent, and Heatseekers albums charts. She followed it in late 2016 with the self-produced EP Tender Warriors Club recorded at Kristian Matsson's home studio in Sweden.

After much anticipation, her 3rd full-length LP, Even in the Tremor, was released on Ba Da Bing Records in April 2019. Spaltro is currently writing her 4th album in southern Maine.

This is a limited-capacity, open-air, physically-distanced and masked event. 66 Newfields Road, Exeter NH http://thewordbarn.com/

If there’s one thing we can thank the pandemic for, it’s that here at Roots Live we get to host the first live performance of the album. Emily will perform the whole of A Dark Murmuration of Words together with all the musicians who appeared on it: Lukas Drinkwater (bass, guitar and vocals), Rob Pemberton (drums, synths, percussion and vocals), Pete Roe (keys, guitar and vocals), Misha Law (viola) and Emily Hall (violin).
