Lisa P Summer Shows!Jul 12, 2014
My goodness, what a beautiful time of year. I'm so grateful for long days and living on a river that sparkles and shines and brings so much life to its banks (yes, even the geese that poop on the lawn). I'm also grateful for some fabulous shows coming up that celebrate VT summer in all its glory.
Wednesday July 16th at 7pm - Lisa P Solo at Colburn Park - Lebanon, NH
I will be opening for Momentum Theater Troupe's Mobile Theater Truck and their production of "A Juliet and Her Romeo," an adaptation of Shakespeare's classic. Bring a blanket and a picnic to Lebanon's Colburn Park and settle in for a night of great music and theater.
Saturday August 2 at 6pm - With the Gregory Douglass Trio at ASIG - Shelburne, VT
Surrounded by 1000 acres of organic farmland on the shores of Lake Champlain, the concert lawn at the All Souls Interfaith Gathering boasts one of VT's most stunning views. I'm thrilled to be performing with the Gregory Douglass Trio which includes G-Doug himself on piano and vocals, Yo-Yo Mo(nique Citro) on cello and yours truly on vocals. We'll be opening for the amazing, Austin-based alt-rock band, Alpha Rev.
Friday August 8 at 4pm - With the Gregory Douglass Trio at the Lake Champlain Maritime Festival - Burlington, VT
I'm thrilled to return to the Lake Champlain Maritime Festival this year with the Gregory Douglass Trio. If you've never experienced the beauty of the Burlington Waterfront, it's definitely worth the trip, especially when great music and delicious local food vendors are involved.
Saturday August 23 at 3pm - With The Tricksters at the Longtrail 25th Anniversary Bash - Bridgewater, VT
For the past few months, some dear friends and I have been working on a cover band project that we will debut this summer called "The Tricksters." Check my SHOWS for other dates at local pubs, etc, but we're especially excited about the Longtrail 25th Anniversary Bash. We'll be sharing the stage with other great VT aritsts: The Lugo Band, Brett Hughes' Bluegrass Outfit, and Kat Wright & The Indomitable Soul Band.
Hope to see you out there this summer!
Lisa P June 1 with Mia DysonMay 29, 2014
Thrilled to announce that I'll be opening for the lovely and fiercely talented Mia Dyson at one of my favorite venues in New England this Sunday June 1 at 7pm. Three Pork Hill is a converted grange hall in Ossipee, NH that hosts shows and focuses on education and advocacy in their beautiful historic space. If you are in or near the Lake Winnipesaukee area, please find more information about the show HERE and come join us in a wonderful community gathering place.
I'm also excited to share more news about my recent time back in the studio at Lane Gibson Recording & Mastering. Glory Reinstein, of Bluebird Promotions, has been working hard to get my music heard, as well as the music of other Vermont artists. Think how awesome it would be if you heard a song by me in a TV show or movie, or an advertisement, and you knew you had something to do with it. Glory just launched a Kickstarter campaign to help finance a new music compilation project with 14+ tracks by VT artists (including a new song by me) that will be "shopped" into the hands of TV/Film music supervisors as well as other music industry folks. Please consider pledging. We've got some great rewards/incentives for your pledge, and every little bit helps. Go to THIS LINK to find out more and make your pledge today!
As always, thank you for your support.

APRIL 16 with Gregory Douglass, and more!Apr 15, 2014
Happy Spring, friends. I defended Winter for most of the season; we New Englanders should know what we're in for, but she was beginning to wear out her welcome. Now it's time for thawing out, getting out and making music.
So thrilled to be joining Gregory Douglass for a FREE show at the Main Street Landing Performing Arts Center with the lovely Monique Citro on cello and some other wonderful Burlington artists. For more info, click HERE. I'll also be in Burlington next week to do a little recording (stay tuned for more info on that) and to stop by Gregory Douglass' home studio to be a special guest on his Thursday Night Live Webcast series with Mo. Tune in to hear us do some old favorites together, and feel free to send in your requests!
I'm also thrilled to be heading down to Tarrytown, NY in a few weeks for a wonderful "house" concert series hosted by some wonderful ladies. Tarrytown Tunes is a series that is committed to building a community with music. This series has outgrown Suzie Roscio's home, but once upon a time
Gregory Douglass and I played in her living room. Join me for a solo show in an intimate venue. For more information and to make reservations, click HERE.
Lots more great news to come.
Till next time,
LISA P - NOVEMBER 30 in BURLINGTON VTNov 15, 2013
Just a quick note to tell you I'll be performing November 30 in Burlington, VT at the wonderful Flynn Space, which sits directly below the Flynn Center Mainstage on Main Street. I'll be teaming up with some great artists that night to celebrate the birthday of Glory Reinstein, queen of Bluebird Promotions. In true selfless Glory fashion, she has made the night about supporting her indie artists and the event will be a fundraiser for an upcoming VT artists' compilation called Green Mountain Magic. I'm thrilled to be sharing the stage that night with my good buddies Gregory Douglass and Pat Cupples (of Hotels and Highways, of course). Joshua Glass, Amber deLaurentis, Patrick Fitzsimmons, Steve Hartmann and Aaron Flinn (just to name a few) will all be on hand for this VT artistravaganza! Get your tickets NOW!!
See you there,
Hotels & Highways Fall TourSep 24, 2013
Three years ago, in a cabin on a lake, three friends came together. Some days spent swimming and singing, others spent bundled and writing, a band was born as fall set in.
Once upon a time, fall meant backpacks and new sneakers, cider and sweaters. For a time, for me, it meant classroom rules and lesson plans. But nothing beats the feeling of piling into a minivan with your best friends in the world to go play songs you wrote with those friends for the most loving listeners a gal could ask for.
Well it's that time again, and Hotels & Highways is hitting the road in the place where fall is king, New England. We can't wait to get back to Three Pork Hill, a beautiful converted grange hall in Ossipee, NH. This house concert and true community gathering on October 2 is open to the public and is not to be missed if you're in the Winnipesaukee area. Then it's back to Bates College in Lewiston, ME October 3 for their one-of-a-kind college listening room series. October 4 brings us to our Boston home away from home, the Lizard Lounge, with a very special guest. Gregory Douglass will share the night with us, and there will be plenty of juicy collaboration. We'll end our mini tour on October 5 at one of our favorite venues, Pierce's Inn. Come share this amazing house concert experience with us; BYOB and join in the bonfire and the essence of fall. It will be winter before we know it.
We can't wait to see your faces again, and eat cider donuts.
Shows with FriendsAug 02, 2013
Hope summer is treating you well. I have been able to sneak away and find moments of summer calm amongst a busy schedule and ongoing home renovations; it's amazing what two days camping or even an hour by the river will do for your soul.
I'm happy to announce some upcoming shows for the end of the summer, some solo and some with great friends like Justin Levinson and Gregory Douglass. In addition to several appearances at the Lake Champlain Maritime Festival, I'm especially excited for my show with Gregory at the gorgeous Spruce Peak Performing Arts Center in Stowe, VT. As you have learned over the years, I absolutely love harmonizing; I'm always up for the challenge of matching great vocalists and aiming to a achieve a "one-voice" sound. A listener once likened the pairing of Gregory's voice and mine to the age-old combination of peanut butter and jelly...a compliment of the highest order, and one I do not take lightly! Don't miss these upcoming opportunities to witness vocal PB&J.
There are also some Hotels & Highways shows on the horizon, to be announced very soon! Stay tuned, and keep an eye on this page for show details.
New Hotels & Highways music to be had...for free.Aug 08, 2012
Summer has a funny way of slyly disappearing before our sun-glassed eyes. Maybe it's old time, flying by while we're having fun in the sun...but any way you slice it, it's August, "Back-to-School" displays are up, and there are even some leaves changing.
Summer is flying by so fast, in fact, that I've barely had time to update you on all the amazing things that have happened. June was filled with a successful and inspiring Hotels & Highways Tour with our pal Mia Dyson. (Mia is just about to release a record called "The Moment," which was produced by Syd and Pat and includes backing vocals from yours truly, and you can order HERE.) As usual, Hotels & Highways was firing on ALL cylinders in June, packing 25 shows into 30 days AND making a new record at the same time, which we decided to release when?...the last day of tour, naturally.
This collection of songs showcases a more grown-up Hotels & Highways. We've evolved as individuals and as a band, and are super-psyched-silly-proud to give you our latest creation. Having recently turned 30, I am hearing from peers that in your twenties you explore in order to determine who you will be, and in your thirties you get to BE that person. This band is in its proverbial 30s, and proud of it.
You can listen to and buy "Greetings from Wilbraham" at our Bandcamp home, though if you are on the H&H mailing list, you should have received your FREE download link already. If you're not on that mailing list, what are you waiting for? Go sign up HERE, get a free song, and then forward me your confirmation email at firstname.lastname@example.org and I'll send you "Greetings from Wilbraham." Pretty good deal.
Hope all is well.
Hotels & Highways Summer Tour with Mia Dyson and Special Guests!May 28, 2012
Hard to believe it's nearly June, though this fabulous Memorial Day Weekend has certainly felt like summertime. It's a perfect time for relaxing, BBQ-ing, canoeing, fishing, golfing...whatever makes you feel good; it's also a perfect time to come see Hotels & Highways with Mia Dyson!! As most of you know Hotels & Highways is the band I'm in with Syd and Patrick (Thomas) Cupples, and we'll be teaming up again with Aussie Rocker Queen, Mia Dyson. We'll be kicking off the tour in the mid-west, but mostly showing up in various Northeast cities almost every night in June. From Boston to Burlington to Brooklyn and beyond!
This tour is special for a number of reasons, not the least of which is it will be our last tour with Miss Mia for a while, as she will be taking her brand new record back to Australia to tour in support of it there. "The Moment" was produced by my bandmates, Pat and Syd, and features yours truly on backing vocals. It's been an amazing experience playing with Mia (having her in our band and being hers), and we're thrilled have this summer tour to rock out a few more times. We're also psyched to have the opportunity to play with some great other artists along the way, namely every Tuesday in Boston at our Lizard Lounge Residency with the likes of Chad Perrone, Cahill, Tall Heights, and Zac Clark.
We also will be writing and recording throughout the tour at our new-found Hotels & Highways Headquarters, which we hope will feel a little like the cabin where "Lost River" was made. Expect to see the fruits of this July 1st.
Your support means the world to us; and if you're reading this, we are already grateful to you for traveling with us this far. Nothing means more than seeing your smiling faces at shows and knowing you're listening. Can't wait to see you this time (and all the new friends you'll introduce us to)!
You can view the details of all our shows here on my site, or over at Hotels & Highways.com, where you can also make sure to stock up on t-shirts & totebags so you can be decked out at all the shows you come to!
