AMERICANA/VEGAN ARTIST ANNETTE CONLON INTRODUCES “FOLK U” – NEW MONTHLY SERIES AT THE VAMPIRE LOUNGE & TASTING ROOM
Monthly Residency Featuring L.A.’s Best Folk Artists Happens Every Fourth Tuesday At Unique Beverly Hills Music Bistro
Beverly Hills, CA – L.A.-based singer/songwriter Annette Conlon introduces “Folk U”, a new monthly series taking place every fourth Tuesday beginning Tuesday, August 22 at Vampire Lounge & Tasting Room, 9865 S. Santa Monica Blvd.
Subsequent dates include:
- September 26th
- October 24th
- November 28th
Doors open 7:00 pm, No cover, 21 and over.
Appearing on August 22nd, Olivia Brownlee, The Fruit Flies, Annette Conlon and more To Be Announced.
“I’ll be bringing in my favorite folk artists to perform in one of Beverly’s Hill’s most unique venues…a Vampire Bar,” says Conlon, who is set to embark on her second Compassionette U.S. Tour beginning September 1. “Where better to play traditional and rural music passed through the ages in oral tradition? From contemporary to roots revival and American folk music, we hope to explore it all,” concludes Conlon.
Conlon will be playing tracks from her critically-acclaimed debut solo album, Life, Death, and the Spaces Between, and songs from her new album scheduled for release in 2018. Her songs of/about compassion, social consciousness, human interaction, and animals, help raise awareness of animal cruelty and factory farming; her tour helps elevate this awareness with sponsors in fashion and food.
The Compassionette Tour will wind through North Carolina, Georgia, Alabama, and Tennessee.
“I am so excited to share my love for animals and vegan-ism with folks across the country, to show them how easy it is to live more compassionately, from what you eat, to what you wear, and to help folks make the connection that our animal friends are not food,” says Conlon.
Husband Doug Conlon will accompany Annette on the tour, playing mandolin, banjo, and guitar, while providing background harmonies. Annette will be playing her Bedell Blackbird Vegan Parlor guitar and her Seagull Artist Studio Concert Hall guitar. Both instruments are made from sustainably-sourced woods and found tone-woods, and the Bedell is 100% vegan, containing no animal products.
Annette is endorsed by both Bedell and Seagull.
The influences of Johnny Cash, Emmylou Harris and Dolly Parton can be discerned in her Conlon’s debut, and Country Music People ranked Life, Death, and the Spaces Between #3 on a ‘Best Albums of 2015’ list, praising Annette Conlon as “a major talent who created a moving, intimate, magical melodic country trip.” Currently working with three-time Grammy winner Alf Rodenas on her second album, Conlon promises a “sweeter, happier, Ameri-Folk/Rock” effort that “delves ever deeper into my human heart.”
