Cheryl Wheeler, Hayley Reardon and Chris Smither perform for The New England Folk Music Archives at the Somerville Armory.

What a week for Last Dance Productions! Three great shows in 8 days. New England Folk Music Archives presented Cheryl Wheeler on December 1st at the Somerville Armory. Arts at the Armory showcases a wide range of visual arts, dance, theater and musical performances. Last Dance Productions was delighted to present Cheryl Wheeler. After the show we all met downstairs at the Archives Gallery for a VIP reception. A wonderful night.

Hayley Reardon performed on Sunday December 2nd for one of the “Gallery Sessions” at the Archives. Hayley is making her mark on the acoustic singer/songwriting scene and this show was no exception. Hayley performed songs from her recent CD “Where The Artists Go” and the audience was also treated to new material. One of the highlights was a cover of “Fishing Blues” by Henry Thomas. Written in the 1920’s, Hayley’s version was closer to Taj Mahal’s interpretation. She certainly is a student of the music.  Hayley was recently featured in the Boston Herald.

The third concert Sunday December 9th, featured the great Chris Smither! We were treated to songs from Chris’s latest CD Hundred Dollar Valentine.

Thanks to all who made it possible especially the volunteers. The New England Folk Music Archives and Last Dance Productions plan to have several more events at the Armory, so check back here for more information.

Nice performance of Chris here, thanks WFUV!
