The Ballroom Thieves

The Ballroom Thieves are out on tour again and will be performing at Songbirds South on Nov. 1 at 9 p.m. Tickets are $10-$12 and available here.

Review for the Ballroom Thieves:

After delivering standout performances and receiving praise from NPR,  Baeble Music, Boston Globe, Paste, and Earmilk amongst others, and claiming millions of streams on Spotify this quiet neo-folk phenomenon is returning to the stage with their intense jazzy melodies and hypnotic hooks. 

Comprised of Calin “Callie” Peters (vocals, cello), Martin Earley (guitar, vocals), and Devin Mauch (percussion, vocals), the group combines their personal experience with nomadic rootlessness, depression, and political unrest on their 2018 EP Paper Crown. These self proclaimed “perennial guests” blend folk and blues grit to produce a rich sound both comforting and insatiable.

Roy Exum: Who Is This ‘New Voice’?

It’s easy for me to say that I either know, or know about, almost every person running in November for the state legislature. Yet when I describe Lemon Williams as the most exciting of the bunch, that’s because he's the only guy I had never heard of when he picked up his qualifying papers. He just turned out the best political aspirant I have had a conversation with in the last ... (click for more)
