Local Folk/Americana singer-songwriter Aimee Van Dyne will perform a distinctive blend of Folk/Americana and Pop/Rock.

Van Dyne comes from Brooklyn, but she calls Berkshire County her home. In New York, she has performed at venues such as The Bitter End and Rockwood Music Hall, where her live performances have been described as events where “three of the best voices in town soar through a uniquely imaginative blend of ideas: counterpoint, contrapuntal vocals, two sets of lyrics playing against each other, you name it!” Her original songs have been characterized, she says, by “catchy choruses and melodies that frequently evoke the thoughtful, George Harrison-side of the Beatles.”

Her Upcoming CD, “Broken Love Songs” was produced by multi-instrumentalist Jim Henry (Eliza Gilkyson, Tracy Grammer) and recorded by David Chalfant of The Nields. It features a first-class team of musicians, including Jon Carroll (Mary Chapin Carpenter), Paul Kochanski (Lori McKenna), and the Berkshires’ very own Ben Kohn (Misty Blues Band).

Van Dyne began writing songs while still a student at Brown University and then continued to write and record while studying architecture at The Cooper Union. In 2001, she released her first EP, “Owning Up,” while working as an architect in NYC. After taking time off to raise her twin daughters, Aimee embarked on a major life transformation, moving up to The Berkshires to pursue a career in music full-time.

She is celebrating her CD Release Party at The Foundry with her six-piece band, local musicians Jim Caron on violin, Sarah Mitchell and Francine Ciccarelli on vocals, Fran Tokarz on upright bass, and Dave Lincoln on drums. Sarah Mitchell and and Francine Ciccarelli will open the event.

Seating and the bar open at 6 p.m., and this event is indoors. By COVID-19 guidelines, all guests must wear a mask when not actively eating and drinking and provide proof of vaccination at the door.

By the Way Berkshires is a digital magazine exploring creative life and community — art and performance, food and the outdoors — and I’m writing it for you, with local voices, because I’ve gotten to know this rich part of the world as a writer and journalist, and I want to share it with you.

If you’d like to see the website grow, you can join me for a few dollars a month, enough for a cup of coffee and a cider doughnut. Members get access to extra stories and multimedia, itineraries a bookmark tool. Let me know what you're looking for, and we’ll explore together.
