The popular Fireside Sessions with Nancy Atlas and Friends will be rekindled at Bay Street Theater in 2020, and returns with a concert every Saturday in January at 8 p.m.

Atlas, along with band members Johnny Blood, Brett King, Richard Rosch and Neil Surreal, have dominated the East End music scene for years. Known for their raw live performances and stellar songwriting, Atlas and her band, The Nancy Atlas Project, have also opened for almost everyone under the sun, including Elvis Costello, Lucinda Williams, Toots and the Maytals, Jimmy Buffett, Crosby, Stills and Nash … and the list goes on and on.

Nancy Atlas grew up in Commack. She spent her 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 in London, bought a guitar for 60 quid and never looked back.

Atlas now lives in Montauk with her husband Thomas and her two sons Cash and Levon and her daughter Tallulah. When not writing a song or on stage rocking out, she can be found spending time with her family enjoying the outdoors.
