The Twangtown Paramours
Saturday, October 15 at 7:30pm
The music of The Twangtown Paramours has been called “Sophisticated Americana”, and is a hybrid of the Nashville and Austin music scenes. This acoustic duo, made up of MaryBeth Zamer and Mike T. Lewis, is known for their well-crafted and award-winning songs, top-notch lead singing, and fine harmonies. WDVX-FM in Knoxville, TN says they “bring a blend of thought provoking lyrics with angelic vocals”.
The Twangtown Paramours have two successful albums under their belt, with a third album on the way. Their sophomore album reached #2 on the Folk DJ Chart, and radio stations in NYC and Chicago listed the album among their very top albums of the year.
The Twangtown Paramours have been chosen three times (2011, 2013 and 2016) to be finalists in the prestigious Kerrville New Folk contest and in 2012 the ‘Twangers' won the Michael Terry People's Choice Award in the Wildflower Arts and Music Festival Songwriter Contest.
Because of their song, “Chains”, the duo has been invited to perform at the March 2017 commemoration in New York City of the Triangle Shirtwaist Factory Fire and a new song of theirs called “Stars Without a Heaven”, though not yet released to the public, is being played at several holocaust museums, including Yadvashem in Israel. The music of the Twangtown Paramours can be heard on over 70 Americana, Folk, and independent Country radio stations world-wide.
During recent Northeast tours, the duo performed at Spruce Peak Performing Arts Center in Stowe, the Franklin Opera House in NH, and the Leura Eastman PAC in Maine. Nationally, they have performed at recognized venues such as Uncle Calvin's in Dallas, Caffe Lena in Saratoga Springs, and the Bluebird Café in Nashville. They have opened for Joe Ely, Claire Lynch, Jimmie Dale Gilmore, Carrie Newcomer, and Kim & Reggie Harris, among others.
