Lyricists’ Corner, April 3: Megan Hopkins, Kat Brennan, The Vagabond Chronicles, Achilles Tenderloin

This Sunday, April 3, this month’s Lyricists’ Corner is going to knock your socks off. We are graced by the momentous return of Megan Hopkins and Kat Brennan, as well as a rare appearance by longtime local favorite, The Vagabond Chronicles! As always, Achilles Tenderloin will host the event at New Boswell Brewery & Tap Room in Richmond and play a few songs of his own. The music starts at 7 PM sharp.


Megan Hopkins

I can hardly wait to see and hear our good friend Megan Hopkins again on April 3! It will be our supreme pleasure to have her back in Richmond.

In addition to being one hell of a lyricist and singer through and through, Megan is among the kindest and most earnest, down-to-earth people I’ve met. Her music will make you laugh, cry, and dance–guaranteed–in the best of ways. If you have never heard her, make sure you come out for a dose of truth with all kinds of soul on it.

I first met Megan when we played an event together at The Irving Theater in October 2013, where I was immediately blown away by her fierce vocals and powerful songwriting. In the years that followed, Megan and her partner in crime Dave Vogt have become a mainstay at music festivals and venues all over the state.  You might even recognize Megan’s voice from a number of events right here in Richmond.

Look up Megan’s music on Soundcloud, Reverbnation, and Facebook. You’ll be glad you did.

Kat Brennan

Kat returns to us from Lima, Ohio, for the first time in nearly a year! If you caught her at the May 2015 Lyricists’ Corner, or at the final edition of my Roscoe’s Odyssey series in August 2014, you already know we are in for a powerful live music experience, this Sunday.

Kat is a leader and innovator in the Lima area music community. In addition to her solo act and singing with her husband as a duo: Kat & Geoff, Kat has also organized various music events in the region including a long running open mic, co-hosted a local music podcast, and currently fronts two other bands: Them Kids and The Vital Season.


The Vagabond Chronicles

Lyricists Corner flyer 2016 APRILNick, a local favorite of more than a decade, will join us for a rare local performance — the first to take place in Richmond since last May!

Nick’s intensely slow baritone voice, deft lyrics, and intricately mellow guitar compositions draws listeners into a world of his own.

Lyricists’ Corner, March 6: Kate Wakefield, Megan Eversole, Aaron Nell, Craig Wynne, Achilles Tenderloin

March’s Lyricists’ Corner event will be a very special night with featured songwriters Kate Wakefield, Megan Eversole, Aaron Nell, and Craig Wynne. As always, Achilles Tenderloin will host the event at New Boswell Brewery & Tap Room in Richmond and play a few songs of his own.
RSVP on Facebook!

Kate Wakefield has taken Cincinnati by storm, the past couple of years, wooing listeners with her fresh cello and vocal arrangements–and racking up a slew of impressive awards, to boot. I encourage you to check out Kate’s latest videos and recordings on Youtube, Bandcamp, and Kate’s website.

Megan Eversole’s beautiful songs have been a staple of our local music scene for over a decade, as well as at music festivals in Florida and New York. Check out Megan’s full-length Lake Worth Sessions release on cdBaby.

Aaron Nell, who frequently contributes his immense multi-instrumentalist talent at Lyricists’ Corner, will share some of his own compositions this time, as one of our featured songwriters. Trust me: you will not want to miss this precious opportunity.

Craig Wynne‘s stunning original songs are a rare treat, as well. Craig is one of the hardworking musicians who does so much to keep Richmond’s fledgling music scene alive and moving. In addition to performing frequently with a number of bands as a singer and multi-instrumentalist (Blackthorn’s Bards, The Years, and Patchwork Sunshine, to name a few), Craig also runs his own recording studio, and hosts E Street Pub’s popular weekly open mic.
