Happy Hour with Eliza Edens & Loblolly Boy

Thursday - March, 14 @ 5:00pm

Eliza Edens is a Berkshires-bred, Philadelphia-based singer-songwriter. Born to a gardener & a journalist who would blast The Beatles, Canned Heat, & Peter, Paul and Mary during car rides to-and-from their rural Massachusetts home, it’s fitting that Eliza is a musician who takes an observational approach to the natural world around her. Combining adventurous fingerpicking with a knack for heart-tugging melody, Eliza writes songs that swell into meditations on memory, nature, time, love, and loss—belonging somewhere between your tumbledown front porch stoop and a hazy bar in the big city. She is a grantee of Club Passim’s 2017 Iguana Music Fund and is currently crafting a debut record.

The Loblolly Boy is the musical vehicle of songwriter Luke Kalloch. After growing up writing

songs in his native state of Maine, Kalloch toured the country playing his music before settling
in Austin, TX where he further honed his songwriting into what his fellow musicians came to call ‘Bummer Folk’. Drawing sonically from the Alt-Country genre, The Loblolly Boy is dynamic, going from a whisper of a verse to a raucous chorus in a matter of beats. Whether in a listening room, bar, venue, or living room, Kalloch feels right at home with his sad songs.
