Hingham’s South Shore Conservatory will bring in an all-women lineup for the Evening Under the Stars concerts this weekend, with alternative singer/songwriter Julia Easterlin and fiddling trio Sail Away Ladies.
According to Conservatory staff, it’ll be a unique two nights of entertainment.
Easterlin, who will perform at the Carr Amphitheatre tonight at 7 p.m., is described as a Regina Spektor type artist, who combines composition and production together in one all-encompassing performance.
“This phenomenal singer-songwriter, vocalist, pianist, and guitarist, adds a looping machine to make her into a virtual one-woman band. Easterlin’s voice combines seduction with a haunting jazz edge, and her music weaves story with an otherworldly vocal dance,” Conservatory staff said in a release.
Known locally as a recent graduate of Berklee College of Music, Easterlin has also been recognized by the National Foundation for Advancement in the Arts, the Gibson/Baldwin GRAMMY Jazz Ensembles, Downbeat Magazine, the John Lennon Foundation, and the New York Songwriters Circle.
Easterlin will perform as part of the Friday Night Lights concerts, sponsored by Boston Private Bank and Trust Co. Tickets are $10 and beer will be available on site.
Saturday will see even more musical talent coming to the South Shore with Sail Away Ladies, a world music and contemporary fiddling trio featuring fiddling sensation Eden MacAdam-Somer.
Somer has earned international recognition for her fiddle, vocal, and percussive dancing talents. A featured soloist with the conservatory symphony and chamber orchestras, jazz, and swing bands, Somer is also known for being an artist at the Aspen and Beijing International Music Festivals.
Somer has also performed in dozens of countries, including India, Iceland, the UK, and Afghanistan.
She will be joined by Cellist Ariel Friedman and singer and fiddler Mia Friedman for the concert, which will take place at the Amphitheatre on July 23 at 7 p.m.
According to a conservatory release, this “in-the-moment music offers high caliber folk music boasting soaring harmonies and infectious grooves, inspiring whimsical dance mid-song and uplifts with their adventurous spirit.”
Sponsored by the Palmer Family, tickets can be purchased in advance for $35 pavilion seats and $20 lawn seats. Lawn tickets purchased at the door are $25.
