The Burren Backroom Presents: Rachel Baldwin, Low Ceilings, Sappho and the Radishes

July 6, 2019 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm


Three local-to-New-England alternative folk acts share the bill at The Burren Backroom.

Rachel Baldwin currently resides in Boston, but got her start in 2015 along the shores of Cape Cod. She writes introspective folk songs about love, loss, and transition. Recently, she’s ditched the acoustic guitar for an electric, and has been performing her songs with a band. She and her band opened for Welsh folk act Novo Amor at the Sinclair in Cambridge, MA.

Low Ceilings is the Connecticut-based indie folk project of Ben Mueller, who has been playing living rooms, clubs, bars, and empty swimming pools since early 2014. He writes love songs and diss tracks about time, distance, and whimsy; combining prog-rock sensibilities with acoustic stylings. Mueller’s latest release, Least Favored Painting, came out May 1st 2018 and was called “literary, wistful, and vibey” by CT Scramble and “fun, philosophical folk” by CTNow.

Sappho and the Radishes are a brand new band cut from old cloth. Vocalist Erini Katopodis was a key member of the Solars, since moved to Northampton. Her solo EP ‘Nouns’ caught the ear of bassist Phillip Jones, looking for a new outfit after Low Ceilings relocated to Connecticut. Mary Kate McGrath’s joining on guitar officially made it a solo project no more. They write music about fog, strawberry pie, and sweet nightmares. Look for the full-length album ‘It’s Not a Dream’ recorded at The Record Company, out by years’ end.
