NORA O'CONNOR (seen HERE) with an opening set by Janet Beveridge Bean

$20 General Admission SEAT / Reserved Tables Available

Nora O’Connor has been an in-demand backup singer/multi-instrumentalist for decades, performing around the world with Iron and Wine, The Decemberists, Andrew Bird, Neko Case, The New Pornographers, Robbie Fulks, Mavis Staples and Chicago super group The Flat Five!

The constraints wrought by Covid limited her to touring the backyards of her hometown playing solo, and reminded her that she can hold her own on guitar and sing the hell out of anything-and she can write a song, too.  With time to spare at home she recorded a collection of songs released on Pravda Records in 2022 entitled My Heart.

O’Connor isn’t new to working solo.  She released Cerulean Blue in 1996 and Til the Dawn in 2004 before she carved out a livelihood making other people’s songs sound better.  She has new intention of stoping-in fact the fall of 2021 found her back out on the road with Neko Case and The New Pornographers.   As well as embarking on two solo-living room show tours all over the midwest and east coast with genius house bookers, Undertow. 

  Janet Beveridge Bean drums, sings and writes in the great, muscular Chicago guitar band Eleventh Dream Day, which celebrated its 40th anniversary last year. She also sings, writes and plays guitar in the off-kilter-beautiful Freakwater, her country-folk group with singer Catherine Irwin that released its debut album in 1989
