2ND MONDAY SONGWRITER SERIES
MONDAY February 8
Hosted by Angie Miller & Tom Fridrich with featured guests THE 19TH STREET BAND and THE WHITE KEYS
THE 2ND MONDAY SONGWRITER SERIES at 49 West Coffeehouse, hosted by Baltimore songwriter ANGIE MILLER showcases the talents of the area’s best songwriters and performers in an intimate, acoustic setting.
THE 19TH STREET BAND features Caolaidhe and Meghan Davis both on vocals, guitar, fiddle and mandolin and newest member Greg Hardin (Ruthie & The Wranglers, White Keys) on bass and vocals..
Caolaidhe came to America from Holywood, Northern Ireland in 2005 to pursue a career in music. With an earlier band, he found himself in need of a fiddle player which led him to Meghan, at the time a classical violinist and DC music teacher, who he quickly auditioned for the band. What Caolaidhe didn’t know was that he was auditioning his future wife. Fast-forward a few months down the road, and Meghan and Caolaidhe found themselves living on ’19th Street’ in Arlington, VA, writing songs and creating the sound that would become the backbone of The 19th Street Band.
With a chemistry and stage presence similar to Johnny & June, they captivate audiences just by being themselves, having fun and keeping it real while making sweet, simple rock and roll. The two combine their instrumental talents with strong harmonies and high energy, bringing genuine joy to the show and instantly connecting to every audience.
THE WHITE KEYS features the songwriting, guitar and bass playing of Greg Hardin (Ruthie & The Wranglers) and the percussion, vocals, guitar and mandolin of Tom Fridrich (Dean Rosenthal’s 3 Piece Racket, Ruthie & The Wranglers) in an elclectic mishmash of new and forgotten songwriting gems.
