TERESA STORCH & LENORE, Saturday, October 20


The Notlob Acoustic Music Series at the Loring-Greenough House presents the best local and touring roots, Americana, newgrass, traditional and contemporary folk and blues artists in unique and unusual settings in the Boston, MA area. This Fall 2007 series continues at the historic Loring Greenough House, 12 South Street, Jamaica Plain, MA. 02130, Built in 1760, it is listed in the National Register of Historic Places and has been a historic house museum since 1926. Its beautiful period decor and intimate size make it an ideal setting for acoustic music.


Touring nationally and in the Northeast since 2003, Teresa Storch has been recognized for her writing and performance by Susquehanna Music and Arts Festival 2005, Flat Rock Music Festival 2004, Rocky Mountain Folks Festival 2003 , and "Boston's Best Singer/Songwriters" Showcase 2003. Her name has spread throughout the country as a voice and presence not to be missed.

Originally from Omaha, Nebraska, she went off to study engineering in Colorado. However, with the famed Red Rocks Amphitheater next door to her school, she was inspired to create and perform her own music. After realizing she was happier writing songs at her physics job than doing research, she fled to the singer/songwriter scene of Boston. There she found the space to do what she loves.

And you can feel her passion for it from the stage. She draws you in with a rich, engaging voice, rhythmic, percussive guitar and acoustic soulful folk. With an authentic desire to connect to the audience, she claims she does this to remind herself, and everyone else, about what's been important to her: living the life you REALLY want to live.


Canadian singer/songwriter Lenore's high energy solo performances have been attracting fans throughout the singer/songwriter scene since she began performing in Toronto a few years ago. Her blend of folk/country/roots music creates a distinct upbeat sound but it is her unusual lyrics, so deceptively simple, that will burrow into your brain after just one listen.

"Another Life" is Lenore's 3rd CD release and features the production talents and superb guitar work of roots veteran Paul Mills (Stan Rogers, Ron Hynes) with additional support from some of Toronto's finest acoustic musicians. The result is an intimate collection of original songs that showcase Lenore's unique vocal, insightful lyrics and stylistic diversity.
