Ten Reasons to See Darlene Love in Concert

  1. Her #1 Holiday Hit “Christmas (Baby Please Come Home)” is a classic. The song was written by Phil Spector for his 1963 seasonal compilation album A Christmas Gift For You. Listen to the song.
  2. Her life story was featured in the Academy Award Winning documentary 20 Feet from Stardom 
  3. She performs it live on The View this Friday. On Monday, she performs it for us! For 29 years, Darlene performed the song on The Late Show with David Letterman. She’s since taken the tradition to The View (see last year's!) and The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon.
  4. She is a Grammy Winner and Rock & Roll Hall of Fame Inductee (Her friend and admirer, Bette Midler did the honors!)
  5. This is her only DC area show! Seeing Darlene perform for the holidays is a must-do. You can only experience it here.
  6. ​Love helped launch more than 100 hit songs, including the number one Billboard hit,” He’s a Rebel.”
  7. Darlene Love is “one of the greatest singers of all time,” according to Rolling Stone Magazine.
  8. “Darlene Love’s thunderbolt voice is as embedded in the history of rock & roll as Eric Clapton’s guitar or Bob Dylan’s Lyrics,” says The New York Times.
  9. “A Darlene Love concert is an event…Love’s warmth and charm came through loud and clear Thursday night as the singer rocked her way through classics from her career,” says What’s Up Rhode Island. Read their review of her show at EG’s Greenwich Odeum. 
  10. She is warmth and grace. Her stage presence will wow you…maybe (maybe!) even more than her voice.

Maryland Hall presents an evening of traditional and contemporary folk music at a performance titled “Birds of a Feather” featuring Magpie and Shenandoah Run on Saturday, March 14 at 7:30 pm. Tickets are $26 for Non-Members and $21 for Maryland Hall members. Noted folk music radio host Mary Cliff will be the emcee for the evening. Click here to purchase tickets.

The concert will feature a range of folk music from classic hits by Pete Seeger, Tom Paxton and Joan Baez and music inspired by the Civil War, the civil rights movement and the environment. The show’s unique format allows the groups to perform separately throughout the night and then come together at the end for a special performance.

Since 1973, Magpie, the NY-based duo of Terry Leonino and Greg Artzner, have brought their unique sound and remarkable versatility to diverse audiences. They perform traditional songs, vintage blues, swing and country as well as folk classics and stirring original compositions. With two strong voices in harmony and superb instrumental arrangements on guitars, mandolin, harmonica, dulcimer and concertina, their sound is powerful and moving. Award-winning recording artists, songwriters, musical historians, and social activists, Magpie always promise a presentation that is highly entertaining as well as provocative and deeply moving. Joining Magpie for the night is bass player Ralph Gordon.

Regional favorite, Shenandoah Run is a folk group made up of nine members, hand-picked for his or her individual musicality, vocal and instrumental talent, and a strong desire to keep folk music alive and fresh. Their repertoire features the songs and sounds of American folk, country, and bluegrass music, with the occasional infusion of songs from other lands. Their blend of vintage and contemporary folk music, treated with lush harmonies and skillful instrumental backing, defines their signature recognizable sound. With their many years of collective performance experience, they produce arrangements that are fresh, varied, and unique, and deliver them in a manner that delights audiences of all ages. Their relaxed and informal presentation quickly establishes a rapport with the audience and encourages them to sing along.
