Sunapee Coffeehouse hosts Nashville duo: Twangtown Paramours

TwangtownFridayCover1500Sunapee, N.H. — The Twangtown Paramours, an acoustic Americana duo from Nashville, will be performing on Friday, October 11 at 7 p.m. at the Sunapee Community Coffeehouse at the Lake Sunapee United Methodist Church, Lower Main Street.

The music of the Twangtown Paramours has been called “Sophisticated Americana,” and is a hybrid of the Nashville and Austin music scenes. The basis of their musical style originates in the country music capital in which they live, but their lyrics are often influenced by poetic Texas songwriters.

The duo consists of Mike Lewis, a successful Nashville songwriter who sometimes plays upright bass for Jimmie Dale Gilmore, and MaryBeth Zamer, who sang background vocals for the late Eva Cassidy.

The Promise of Friday Night, the latest Twangtown Paramours album, was #2 last July on the Folk DJ Chart, was on two top 10 radio lists for the year in New York City and Chicago, and was #7 on Deep Roots Magazine Top 50 Album list for 2012.

The duo’s songs can be heard on over 70 Americana, Folk, and independent Country radio stations world-wide and previewed at Twangtown Paramours.com.

And it is likely their songs will be in at least one major motion picture in 2014. They’ve been asked by Major Studio Partners (in NYC), which financed films such as Superman II and The Devil Wears Prada, to write music for upcoming films.

SCCoffeeHouse Alan “Doc” Rogers will be the Coffeehouse emcee for the evening and will pass the hat for the musicians. Light refreshments will be available.
