Griffin House & Callaghan @ the Tractor Tavern, August 15th
Review & Photos by Heather Fitzpatrick
All right, it could have been the heat, but Callaghan and Griffin House played songs that could melt faces at the Tractor on August 15th. Love songs, songs of historical special meaning, and songs of life as a musician; each act had the audience captivated by the music.
Callaghan, originally from London, has moved stateside in recent years, and continues to tour quite extensively. Her debut album, Life In Full Colour is available here, and has received rave reviews in the likes of Billboard.com and The Huffington Post.
Griffin House didn’t start playing music until the age of 18. (He grew up quite an athlete, and golf was his game of choice.) Since deciding to become a musician, he’s played local gigs, toured with The Cranberries, John Cougar Mellencamp, and others, as well as headlined his own tour. As one of the members of Ten Out Of Tenn, he also played numerous shows with its members and appears on their compilation CDs. His latest release, The Learner (2010) is available here. You will also be happy to know that his Kickstarter campaign was completely funded this July, and his CD is slated for a fall release.
