This month’s TableTop Sessions take the tabletop thing seriously. As in, our musicians will be seated around a tabletop. Seriously.
Join us as we welcome back Lancaster-by-Bostonian Dietrich Strause with his good buddies, Session Americana. Dietrich comes home to unveil his brand new album, which is set for release on October 22. He and Session Americana will join forces for the night as well, complimenting each others sets both instrumentally and vocally.
Millersville University student Daniella Laudadio will give a spoken word performance in between music sets.
Remember, 100% of ticket sales at our TableTop Sessions go directly to our artists! And tickets are limited, so make sure you snatch yours up before the event. We cannot guarantee there will be day-of sales at the door.
Singer-songwriter Dietrich Strause is as hard working as he is downright personable. The Lancaster native and Boston-based folk musician seems to be always on the move, whether traveling on tour or recording his music – always with a smile, calm voice and gentle disposition. His songs tell stories, the kind that draw you in and make you feel immediately familiar with the characters and the setting. Dietrich makes his return to Tellus360 on the wake of the release of his third album, Little Stones to Break the Giant’s Heart. Join us as we celebrate the release of Dietrich’s new album!
Fellow Bostonian outfit Session Americana is a rock band in a tea cup, or possibly a folk band in a whiskey bottle. This collective of talented musicians craft an musical experience unlike any other. On stage is a collapsible bar table wired with microphones, a vintage suitcase recast as a kick drum, an old Estey field organ, a pre-war parlor guitar, a mandocello and all of its smaller siblings, a harmonica case fire damaged when Jack’s bar went up in flames and graffitied by Depeche Mode roadies, and an assortment of other instruments that get passed around in this freewheeling modern hootenanny. The anything-could-happen feel of a Session show depends on craft that’s not accidental or easilywon; they bring a kind of ease and genuineness to this timeless music, sometimes presenting the latest batch of original songs, sometimes reaching back into depths of the American “song bag”. These folks take the “table” in our TableTop Sessions seriously.
