On behalf of The Frank Hamilton School, TDawg Presents is excited to bring you the acclaimed and gifted songwriter Martha Scanlan, formerly from the Reeltime Travelers, for a Sunday backyard gathering. This concert is a benefit for the Frank Hamilton School, so come on out and support a wonderful cause while witnessing magic on the stage with Martha’s presence. Martha hasn’t been around these parts very much in recent years so this will be a special performance! On a personal level, I worked with the Reeltime Travelers several times throughout their too brief of a career as a band, and I can’t express to you how excited I am to be presenting this show.

Martha Scanlan’s long-awaited third release, The Shape Of Things Gone Missing, The Shape Of Things To Come, is already being heralded as her best work yet. “A revelation, an instant classic and one of those rare albums that defies genre and generation. Scanlan evokes western landscapes as effectively as Georgia O’Keefe did on canvass.” – Dirty Linen

=============================================
