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