Shaina continues her weekly Monday night acoustic residency at Rockwood Music Hall, playing every Monday night in March at 9 PM, featuring brand new original music and songs off her record, What Otters Do. She'll play March 5th, 12th, 19th and 26th.
The residency will feature Taub on vocals and piano, Mike Brun on bass and guitar, and Jacob Colin Cohen on the drums, with rotating special guests each week. This Monday, March 5th, will feature Nadia Quinn (Bloody Bloody Andrew Jackson).
Vermont-raised, New York-based singer/songwriter Taub and her band have played to packed houses at such venues as Joe's Pub and Ars Nova. She released her debut EP this summer, entitled What Otters Do, an eclectic six-song collection spotlighting Taub's unique breed of pop brewed with folk and jazz. She was recently featured on NPR/WNYC's Best Concerts of 2011 list, alongside such greats as Mavis Staples and Taj Mahal. Her album is currently available for free download on Taub's website and all online music providers.
Taub’s folk-funk opera, The Daughters, was developed last summer at Mark Brokaw's Yale Institute of Music Theater, featured in the 2010 NAMT Songwriter's Showcase, workshopped at CAP21 Theater Company and was a 2011 Richard Rodgers Awards finalist. She is Ars Nova's 2012 Composer-in-Residence, and is currently developing a new musical piece commissioned by the Oregon Shakespeare Festival.
Rockwood Music Hall is located at 196 Allen Street. Admission is free. The shows are on Stage One.
