Thursday 7.14.11 Megan Callahan & Friends and the Albrights

As part of the Conservancy's Summer Breeze by the Lake FREE concert series, artists Megan Callahan, and The Albrights will be performing on Thursday, July 14, at Delaware Park Rose Garden Pergola (199 Lincoln Parkway), from 5:00-9:00PM. You won't want to miss out on this eclectic experience!

Megan Callahan, originally from New Jersey, has a very broad background that contributes strongly to her unique musical style.  She formerly perfomed in the duo Voxangelica, but has since worked as a solo performer, putting out her first full length album "Since the Fire" in Buffalo, NY.  She lists Joni Mitchell, Bonnie Raitt, Ella Fitzgerald, Led Zeppelin, Buffy Sainte-Marie, Ani DiFranco, Nina Simone, Jeff Buckley, and Pete Seeger as her influences, also commenting that the other music she enjoys would form an endlessly long list.

You can learn more about Megan, as well as view photos and more, at her website: http://www.megancallahan.com, or on her Twitter page. She's also made several videos available for your enjoyment on her YouTube Channel.

From her website:
“Arts education and access to music and the arts early in life literally helped me through some of the roughest times of adolescence. This is a vital outlet for young and old people alike.” Megan says. She is committed to people not only having access to their inner artist, but the means to voice it as well. For this reason, she strives to raise awareness about the importance of living wages for artists, creating safe space for artistic expression on a community level, and the philanthropic opportunity that exists in combining live performance with raising funds for charities and socially conscious organizations."

The Albrights, composed of Joseph Donohue III, Brandon Barry, Matthew Crane, Aaron Odden, are a Buffalo based rock band with an ecclectic blend of early American Rock, Blues and Motown packaged together through stellar musicianship and a genuine approach to music.  They are presently on the indie label Buzz Records, producing music not unlike that of The Beatles, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Queen, Jerry Lee Lewis, The Killers, and Moby Grape.
