Francesca Blanchard (7pm)
Francesca Blanchard has evolved a bit since the release of her 2015 debut album Deux Visions (a folky bilingual homage to her bicultural upbringing). She’s moved from French-American folk to indie-pop. She’s started to dive into more self-effacing, complex explorations of the human psyche, and tapped into her acting background to more effectively illustrate both the grandiose and trivial nature of her favorite topic: heartbreak (and what comes after). New songs and a self-imparted responsibility to have a little more fun propel Blanchard in a fresh and unpredictable direction. Francesca is currently finishing the production of her second album. http://www.francescablanchard.com/
Aubrey Haddard (9pm)
Vocalist and songstress Aubrey Haddard bridges the gap between new-wave R&B and old-school blues with timeless soul and effortless melody. Performances by the 24 year old are refreshingly raw and hauntingly hypnotic, captivating audiences with a whiskey-soaked, sugar-coated voice that weaves itself in and out of groove-centric original music.
Born and raised in the Hudson River Valley, Haddard was awarded ‘Massachusetts Solo Artist of the Year’ by Bridging the Music Productions, and has become the front woman of the Boston-based original funk group The New Review. This group heralded recognition from the illustrious NPR Tiny Desk Competition, who stated “it sounds like she’s about to catch fire.” In May of 2017, the Aubrey's trio began working on a full length studio album called Blue Part, a concept album steeped in the concepts of love, relationships, and passion. https://www.aubreyhaddard.com/
