Montauk singer-songwriter Nancy Atlas will continue her popular Fireside Sessions at Bay Street Theater this winter, opening in January for every Saturday throughout the month.
Nancy Atlas and her band of Journeymen have been dominating the East End Music scene on Long Island for many years. Known for her raw, live performances and stellar songwriting Nancy and her band, The Nancy Atlas Project, have opened for Elvis Costello, Lucinda Williams, Toots and the Maytals, Jimmy Buffett, and Crosby, Stills and Nash.
The Fireside sessions with Nancy Atlas will open on January 2 with violinist Randi Fisenfeld, continuing on January 9 with drummer Simon Kirke. Trombonist Clark Gayton will play the January 16 show, with Andy Aledort & Friends jamming out during a night for epic guitar on January 23. Keyboard player Danny Kean will play with Nancy on January 30.
“We wanted to offer this popular series again this year,” says Gary Hygom, Producer at Bay Street Theater. “People just love coming out each weekend and rockin’ out with Nancy and her guests and her concerts sold out last winter just about every night.”
Nancy grew up with gypsy blood in Commack. She spent her entire college years abroad at both Cambridge University in England and Richmond College in London and Florence. There was a serious recession going on the year she graduated college so instead of becoming an advertising executive she walked down to Portabello Road, London, bought a guitar for 60 quid and never looked back.
Nancy now lives in Montauk, with her husband Thomas and her two sons Cash and Levon and her daughter Tallulah. When she is not writing a song or on stage rocking out, she can be found spending time with her family enjoying the outdoors.
Tickets are $25 and are available online at www.baystreet.org or by calling the Bay Street Theater Box Office at (631) 725-9500.
