Saturday, April 2 , 7:00 p.m. at the The Nacul Center, 592 Main St., Amherst, Mass (see map).
Guest performers will be Eva Cappelli & the Watershops Band .
Eva Cappelli's music is a lively mix of blues, folk, country, rock, "torch songs" with 1940s-50s styling, latin/tex-mex, and a wide range of other popular and ethnic styles. Lead guitarist Joe Carvalho and Accordion player Larry Dulong add inspired and versatile accompaniment. Together they are Eva Cappelli and the Watershops Band, named for the Springfield lake near Carvalho's home.
Cappelli's songwriting style is personal, revealing a life overcoming obstacles. In essence, her work comprises a series of musical "stories" celebrating a woman's survival in a hard world.
The group has produced 2 CDs, including 2009's Valentine, named by LiveWire as one of the best local albums of the year. They are working on a new recording, Bits and Bobs, scheduled for release this spring.Learn more about Eva Cappelli and the Watershops Band at http://evacappelli.com.
