Comments about Liz by Robin Hilton
January 1, 2009 - It was an unusually strong year for great unknown artists. While bigger, more established bands continued to attract the most attention, smaller, lesser-known acts made the most memorable music of 2008. Some, like Southern Gothic chanteuse Liz Durrett made quieter, more intimate albums. But all of the great unknown artists featured here made music that was inspired, original and heartfelt.
5. Liz Durrett: 'Outside Our Gates'Artist: Liz Durrett
Album: Outside Our Gates
Song: You Live Alone
Liz Durrett is the niece of famed Georgia-based singer Vic Chesnutt, and has appeared on a number of his recordings, singing backup or playing violin. But Durrett herself is a gifted singer-songwriter with an unforgettable voice. This year, she released her third and most fully realized solo album to date: Outside Our Gates is a searing but gorgeous collection of spare, Southern Gothic folk songs about tortured dreams, loss and longing. It's melancholy, to be sure, with Durrett's remarkably emotive and mournful vocals casting an otherworldly glow. But it's also the singer's most upbeat, hopeful and ambitious album so far.
Liz is the first of a few acts that will be coming up from the South this winter. Give her a listen. www.myspace.com/lizdurrett._______________________________________

The cold weather and holidays are upon us. For many people, this time of year means bundling up with a cup of cocoa, spending time with friends and family, and enjoying lots of fantastic food. This can also translate to extra stress and extra pounds.

Now’s your chance to experience it for yourself! Take an hour out of the week to do something for yourself this holiday season - Classic Form Pilates is leading a 6-week intro to Pilates course at the North End Studio. You’ll learn the fundamentals of the Pilates method – breathing, centering, control, and how to properly access those deep core muscles.
The class is sure to challenge you and inspire you. You’ll get through the holidays with a little bit more peace of mind, and fewer pounds on your body.
