Treasures Showcase and CD Release Opens EOH Season
With Pamme Swan, Caitlin Grossjung, Rabbit in the Rye & Tumbleweed Highway
On Saturday, May 4th at 7:30pm the Earlville Opera House opens its season with four CNY bands: Pamme Swan, Caitlin Grossjung, Rabbit in the Rye and Tumbleweed Highway. The Earlville Opera House and Treasures in the Heart of NY are joining forces to get the word out about hunger in our community with this joint benefit to raise awareness while celebrating our arts and music. The evening’s gala will include signature desserts from some of the area’s finest restaurants as well as raffles and a Silent Auction of artwork and fabulous baskets donated by local businesses. Good Nature Brewing will be on hand for this celebration of local talent!
The Treasures in the Heart of NY project will release its new CD on May 4th with 21 original and traditional tracks of music in support of CNY Food Cupboards with additional tracks online. Hard copies of the Treasures Volume III CD will be available at the May 4th performance and will also be made available online May 4th; please use this link: www.treasuresintheheartofny.org to preview the new CD and to order online if you cannot make it to the performance! All sales support the local food pantries.
The four talented acts featured at the May 4th concert include Pamme Swan, who plays an old Taylor 514 CE, a cherry Martin, and a walnut dulcimer, borrowing from country, folk, and bluegrass traditions. She sings original, story-telling songs about Central New York, the Adirondacks and more.
Caitlin Grossjung is a singer-songwriter and the founder of Broad Street Records. She was featured in the 2009 EOH Youth Showcase of Singer Songwriters. She has her own radio program on WRCU and is working on her first EP with Orbital Sound.
Rabbit in the Rye is a progressive folk rock trio who carefully craft their songs with layers of symbolism, romance, honesty and rapture. They just celebrated their February release of five new songs. Their music is a collection of bittersweet fables and genuine storytelling.
Tumbleweed Highway was formed from members of the bands Panhandle, Fetish Lane and other local favorites that have been part of the Americana scene in Upstate New York for over10 years. Blending country, folk, soul and blues, the band’s influences include artists John Prine, Jerry Jeff Walker, Lyle Lovett and Gram Parsons.

Don’t forget to visit our Artisan’s Gift Shop featuring New York artists and the EOH Arts Café! The café is always open before the performance and during intermission, and for the Showcase evening will serve signature desserts from some of the area’s finest restaurants and hot coffee/tea.
