After releasing two critically acclaimed albums in the past two years, Bruce T Carroll is hitting the road and playing the clubs with a band of supremely accomplished musicians, including Marc Shulman (Suzanne Vega, Richard Shindell), Tommy Mandel (Bryan Adams, Dire Straits), Joe Bonadio (Marc Cohn, Sting) and Lincoln Schlieffer (Warren Haynes, Larry Campbell).

Bruce's music, lyric-driven and imagistic, has often been described as an original extension of the works of songwriters like Tim Hardin, John Martyn and Tom Waits. “Ruckus and Romance,” released in December 2016, has been described as “devilishly brilliant” and “intensely beautiful” by No Depression Magazine; and “Finding You,” released in June, 2018, has been called “a fine, intense commentary on America's past.” Taken together, these two albums form the core of what is becoming a serious body of work by this writer.

Although he is a committed balladeer, Bruce's live show is kinetic and energetic, and his skilled band delivers the rockers in his set with power and conviction. Many of his songs are rooted in his conviction that music and social conscience rise from the same wellspring of humanity, and derive meaning and power from their ability to inform, inspire and unite.

Raquel Vidal is a Hudson Valley-based singer-songwriter and the lead singer of Diamond Hotel, a band recently featured on WFUV’s “On Your Radar.” Described by New York Music Daily as “underground noir” with songs that are “darkly cinematic” and “voice a bittersweet optimism,” her lyrics follow darkness down long corridors, through velvet lounges and expose the light streaming through the cracks in the plaster. For the past six summers, she has worked with Dar Williams on her songwriting retreat, “Writing A Song That Matters,” helping mentor songwriters and gathering gratitude and inspiration along the way. This rare set will feature Raquel’s songs in a more stripped-down presentation, without a full band. She will be joined by singer-songwriter Neal Gomberg and other special guests.

At the Dec. 2 show, Bruce and Raquel will donate a portion of ticket sales (Bruce will also donate a portion of his CD sales) to HIAS (The Hebrew Immigrant Aid Society), a nonprofit group that actively aids refugees around the world and was recently falsely accused by the perpetrator of a hate crime in Pittsburgh, PA.
