As of June 16, 2021, New York State has lifted all COVID-19 related restrictions that apply to a venue of Rockwood’s size. In accordance with these revised guidelines, vaccination records will no longer be checked and entry will be permitted for both vaccinated and unvaccinated individuals. Social distancing and masks will not be required, although masks will remain recommended for non-vaccinated individuals.
New York City based musician Erin Hall has been sashaying the city streets for more than a decade; performing frequently in music venues, comedy shows, and independently releasing three albums; two under the name Erin and Her Cello, and the latest album under her name. She has been featured on WNYC’s New Sounds, Broad City Live, and has opened for the Portland Cello Project, comedian Tig Notaro, and others.
Erin Hall’s latest album, Great Blue (self-released 2019), defies easy categorization, jumping from latin, funk, jazz and blues, to French pop. Her lyrics tell stories about the ordinary details of city life, and discovering the beauty of urban nature — like the pond in Central Park where she found magic and inspiration from a Great Blue Heron.
The singer, songwriter, and cellist performs with keyboardist Gabe Shuford (Repast Baroque, Orchestra of St. Lukes) Adam Enright (2Scoops) on backup vocals, Jacquelene Acevedo (American Utopia) on percussion and backup vocals, and John Bollinger (Sway Machinery) on drums. Past shows include: Brooklyn Academy of Music (BAM) Joe’s Pub at The Public, Rockwood Music Hall, The Apple Store, Ars Nova, (le) Poisson Rouge, The Greene Space at WNYC, World Cafe Live (Philly), Visual Arts Collective (Boise), The Jewelbox Theater (Seattle), and Alberta’s Pub (Portland).
