A History of Howard Johnson's by Anthony Sammarco

Howard Johnson created an orange-roofed empire of ice cream stands and restaurants that stretched from Maine to Florida and all the way to the West Coast. Popularly known as the Father of the Franchise Industry, Johnson delivered good food and prices that brought appreciative customers back for more. The attractive white Colonial Revival restaurants, with eye-catching porcelain tile roofs, illuminated cupolas and sea blue shutters, were described in Readers Digest in 1949 as the epitome of eating places that look like New England town meeting houses dressed up for Sunday. Boston historian and author Anthony M. Sammarco recounts how Howard Johnson introduced twenty-eight flavors of ice cream, the Tendersweet clam strips, grilled frankforts and a menu of delicious and traditional foods that families eagerly enjoyed when they traveled.

Hoot & Holler and Hannah Shira Naiman
Hoot & Holler is what you get when Amy Alvey (fiddle, vocals) and Mark Kilianski (guitar, vocals) combine their playing and songwriting forces. After touring with regional acts Mighty Tiny (Amy) and The Whiskey Boys (Mark), and jamming frequently on Boston's burgeoning string music scene for years, Hoot & Holler was born from their mutual love of American Folk music and Appalachian fiddle tunes. Since its formation, Hoot & Holler have entertained audiences all over the Northeast and Europe.

http://www.hootandhollermusic.com

Hannah Shira Naimangrew up just north of Toronto- a few thousand miles away from the hills of Appalachia- and yet her family home was always full of the sounds from that land. Raised by a banjo plucking Pa, and a children's musician/dance caller/fiddling Ma, her home was a hub forAmerican roots music in the cold heart of a Canadian metropolis.

Despite her upbringing, Hannah took her time coming around a career in folk music. Throughout her youth, amidst a casual dabbling in folk-rock guitar and a half a dozen suzuki fiddle lessons, she focused her energy on training as a professional contemporary dancer and choreographer. After graduating with a degree in Contemporary Dance from Concordia University, Hannah moved to Boston to pursue a career in choreography. It wasn't until her mid-twenties that Hannah's hands fell upon a banjo, and it was shortly after that that she reconnected with her fiddle. Having lived away from home for several years, the tug of this music awoke a homesickness that brought her right back to Toronto, and eventually this desire of hers to reconnect with her roots brought her to release her first album,Tether My Heart(November 2013, Merriweather Records Ltd.).

Hannah found the banjo to be a generous muse, inspiring an abundance of songs laying in wait for her. Listeners can clearly hear how she has harvested the sounds and themes of this music in her bones.Her banjo-driven songs are sorooted in tradition that they can be hard to tell apart from ones found in a backporch jam in the Appalachian mountains, yet her take on this music is informed by her life in the Canadian metropolis of Toronto and by the busy community of cutting edge roots musicians who live there.Her sound has been described as recalling that of Gillian Welch and The Be Good Tanyas and is inspired by Ola Belle Reid and Hazel Dickens. While Hannahs style is decidedly Appalachian folk, shes also influenced by styles outside the genre, such as English and Irish ballads, African spirituals and gospel music, as well as the pop and indie music that filled her younger days-- Leslie Feist, Ani Difranco, and other strong female songwriters.

The Marshall Scholarship Programmewas estabished in 1953 to honour US Secretary of State George C. Marshall and express Britain's gratitude for economic assistance received through the Marshall Plan after World War II. The Marshall Scholarship finances young Americans of high ability to study for a degree in the United Kingdom. Up to forty Scholars are selected each year to study at graduate level at an UK institution in any field of study. As future leaders, with a lasting understanding of British society, Marshall Scholars strengthen the enduring relationship between the British and American peoples, their governments and their institutions. Marshall Scholars are talented, independent and wide-ranging, and their time as Scholars enhances their intellectual and personal growth. Their direct engagement with Britain through its best academic programmes contributes to their ultimate personal success.

The Lonesome Trios Sugar Hill Records debut is an album that has been, arguably, twenty years in the making. The three band members -- guitaristEd Helms, bassistIan Riggsand mandolinistJacob Tilove have been creating music together for almost as long as theyve been friends, after meeting at Oberlin College in the early nineties. On the surface, that music blends acoustic folk, bluegrass and a hint of lovelorn country. At its core, though, its the sound of friendship, of camaraderie, burnished over time: warm-hearted, welcoming, occasionally wistful, often slyly funny. Songwriting and playing continued to bring them together even as their lives and careers took them in separate directions and coasts with Helms a successful actor, Riggs a full-time musician and Tilove an architectural historian. For years, the trio shared its songs with family and friends, as well as those clued-in fans who could find them, and they always made time at the end of each year for an annual holiday gig at the comfortably grungy Parkside Lounge in Manhattans Lower East Side. Now theyre extending their reach with the release of the trios long-anticipated, first full-length album, on Sugar Hill Records, a set of all-original tunes they recorded over two weeks, with engineer and co-producer Gary Paczosa (Steep Canyon Rangers, Sarah Jarosz), at the Echo Mountain studios in Asheville, North Carolina.

Despite the distance and their disparate daily careers, music clearly remains the tie that binds. As Tilove notes, Theres this way of communicating through music. For example, when I see my brother there will be an expression, something unsaid, that cracks the both of us up and other people will wonder what made us both laugh. And music is the same way. There is one song, High Road, Low Road, where Ed does a harmony with me. Every time we sing that there is something about our voices together that makes me so happy. Just the sound. And I have sung it a couple of times with other people and its never been quite the same. Its the sound of all our voices together. Its more than the sum of its parts, more than just friends playing and making music, its a deep thing.

Thats why this album a chance for the world to hear the songs these three have shared and tinkered with for years is simply calledThe Lonesome Trio. Says Helms, We talked through a lot of ideas of what to title it and Jake felt strongly that it should be self-titled. I was on the fence; I lean toward irony and something cheeky. But Im glad we settled on the self-titled because its the most literal, descriptive and accurate name for the album. Its who we are. Its a little unrefined in places but its unapologetic. Im super-proud.
