Bound for Glory Schedule-Fall 2018
August 26—Traonach. We’ll start our fall series of live shows with the Celtic band Traonach. Jigs and reels, and songs as well as tunes. It’s an Irish session writ large. Traonach will get your toes tapping. They just plain have fun playing their music, and the fun is very contagious. www.facebook.com/traonach/
September 2—Tracy Grammer. Tracy is a fine songwriter and a collector of other people’s songs as well. She’s a magical performer. She’s making her second visit to Bound for Glory, but the first one was back in 2001, with her late partner Dave Carter. Join her as she spins her delightful web. www.tracygrammer.com
September 9—Christine Lavin. It’s hard to imagine another folk performer as funny as Christine Lavin. She has a wild imagination and quite a twist on everything. She’s a great storyteller, too. Nobody else compares to her. Let’s enjoy her return to Bound for Glory. She’s even made an album of a past Bound for Glory performance. www.christinelavin.com
September 16—John Roberts. John Roberts sings songs in the English folk tradition. He’s both expert at the serious long ballads of old, and full of good humor. John has a huge repertoire, and we’ll never know what to expect until it happens. Fifty years ago John was a big part of the Ithaca folk scene. He’s back again. johnrobertsmusic.com
September 23—Bobby Henrie & Aaron Lipp. Boy, can these guys play. And sing. Flatpicking extraordinaire. Bobby is inspired by the late Doc Watson. Aaron is inspired by… Aaron. They really respect the American folk tradition, and the country songs of many decades ago. www.aaronlipp.com
September 30—Larry Kaplan. Larry Kaplan writes songs that other people sing and record, and many of them don’t know where they come from. Larry Kaplan is a hero, a writer of strong songs that travel before him. He’s both laid back and charming, and his second Bound for Glory performance will be a very special show. www.larrykaplanmusic.com
October 7—Albums from the Studios, as Cornell takes Fall Break, and we’re following the Cornell calendar. Give Phil a call at 607-273-2121.
October 14— T.B.A.
October 21—Cliff Eberhardt & Louise Mosrie. Both Cliff and Louise are super songwriters. They are very different, and each is a whole lot of fun. We might call Cliff somewhat bluesy, and Louise somewhat country. But the strongest thing we can say is that they both know the truth when they sing it. www.cliffeberhardt.com www.louisemosrie.com
October 28— T.B.A.
November 4—Heather Pierson Trio. Lots of different kinds of music. The Heather Pierson trio has been on Bound for Glory once before, and it was a knock out. What a superior show!! The band is tight, and right. Heather Pierson is a fine songwriter and performer. www.heatherpierson.com

December 2—Cosy Sheridan. What a fine way to end our fall season! Cosy Sheridan invites you into her world. She’s a songwriter, and a storyteller.
