Arts Council Concert Saturday Night

Eilen Jewell brings her early blues, classic country, folk, and rock sound to Fallon
Arts Council Concert Saturday Night

Eilen Jewell with be performing Saturday, April 15 at 7 p.m. at the Oats Park Art Center, 151 E. Park Street.
The Boston Globe calls Jewell, “Emotionally raw and riveting.” While The American Songwriter describes the Boise, Idaho, musician as, “one of America’s most intriguing, creative, and idiosyncratic voices.”

As the reigning Queen of the Minor Key, Jewell leads a tight quartet that blends influences of surf-noir, early blues, classic country, folk, and 1960s-era rock ‘n’ roll. For well over a decade, they have toured for legions of fans from Boston to Boise and Madrid to Melbourne, playing large festivals, theaters, rock clubs, and coffeehouses.

With Get Behind the Wheel, her ninth studio album, Jewell plants herself firmly in the driver’s seat as she picks up the pieces and finds new purpose and meaning in the process. Co-produced by multi-instrumental wizard Will Kimbrough, the collection pushes Jewell’s trademark blend of vintage roots-noir into more psychedelic territory, with spacious, cinematic arrangements complementing her revelatory explorations of grief, loss, resilience, and redemption. The band’s performances are truly electrifying, blending elements of early rock and rockabilly with old-school country and soul, and Jewell’s delivery is timeless to match, her voice effortlessly moving from unguarded intimacy to icy cool and back, sometimes within the very same song. The result is Jewell’s boldest album yet, a powerful work of artistic alchemy that transforms heartache into genuine creative rebirth.

The box office, art bar & galleries open at 6 p.m., the performance begins at 7 p.m.

Tickets are members $17, non-members $20, and youth and students $10.
