Tonight on BIRNCore we will be presenting a live performance of yet another fantastic artist coming through Boston.  This week singer-songwriter Tyler Hilton will be throwing down at the Red Room at Café 939 this evening at 8:00 PM.

Although only 30 years old, Tyler Hilton has accomplished more than most young artists dream of.  He began teaching himself guitar by learning Elvis songs and performing at open mics around his hometown of Palm Springs, CA.  After moving to Los Angeles, he released his major-label debut The Tracks Of in 2004.  In addition to his music, you may recognize Hilton from his role on One Tree Hill and his portrayal of Elvis Presley in the Johnny Cash biopic Walk the Line.  

This is all going down TONIGHT on our BIRNCore channel, so be sure not to miss out on any of the action.  The music starts at 8:00 only on the BIRN.

Live from Café 939 - Berklee In The Round (4/8, 7:00 PM)

image

At the Berklee Internet Radio Network we love that we get to broadcast events that you won’t find at any other college, and tomorrow night’s show is no exception.  Tune into birnCORE tomorrow at 7:00 PM to feast on Café 939’s most popular monthly attraction, Berklee In The Round.

Inspired by the famous Bluebird Café rounds in Nashville, TN, Berklee In The Round performances are focused on creating the most intimate and inviting atmosphere for Berklee’s best singer-songwriters to showcase their newest originals.  The performers sit in the middle of the room and play their songs round-robin style, as if the audience were joining the writers in their own living room.  

As always, you can listen to this edition of Berklee In The Round on our birnCORE station right at 7:00 PM.  Sit back, relax, and let these young writers transport you to worlds you didn’t know existed.
