Listen Live Music, Inc. is a non-profit community music organization. This corporation of volunteers fosters artists and audiences alike, providing a stage on which to perform and affordable shows close to home for the appreciating public to enjoy. Through a series of concerts and community open mics, we are dedicated to promoting public awareness and appreciation of both local and national acoustic performers.
Friday, December 23: TONY TRISCHKA returns to the LLM stage for a holiday concert! This performance expands on Tony’s repertoire to include new music and arrangements from his 2014 album Of A Winter’s Night, which was recorded live at Levon Helm’s Barn, Woodstock, NY. Joined by multi-instrumentalist & shape-note singer Tim Eriksen, Trischka also revels in songs long-forgotten and little-known. Trischka and Eriksen put a warm spin on a wealth of festive fare. Tim, also an ethnomusicologist who worked closely with T Bone Burnett on the soundtrack for the film Cold Mountain, has invited shape note singer and fearless fiddler Zoe Darrow to join them. The stark, haunting sound of shape note music is the perfect complement to the music that Tony has written and arranged. They will be joined by Tony’s protégés and guests. 7:30pm doors, 8pm music. Tickets are $20. Get yours in advance here.

November 2016 - Listen Live Music, local nonprofit listening room that has been dark for most of 2016, has announced today that changes are afoot. Recently, through a unanimous vote, Chelsea Lyn Meyer (local music artist and founder of Power Chords Music Mentors for Our Youth) is the new Chair, Megan Gilmer is the new Secretary/Treasurer and Sherryanne Meyer is the Vice President.
Events will continue in the Macungie Institute and will kick off with an LLM favorite, Tony Trischka, for a star studded holiday show on December 23rd.
Ami Lanning and Val Minett, along with several great friends, started LLM in the summer of 2009. Since then the organization has produced 50 staged concerts and 4 seasons of concerts in the park for Upper Saucon. LLM also hosted monthly open mics.
"LLM was our first baby, but now that we have a growing family we had to shift our priorities. I feel like we weren't giving LLM the time and dedication it needs to keep it on track," Val Minett shared.
During the transition, Ami and Val will be helping the new crew with everything from booking to sound but know that LLM is in capable hands. "We are looking forward to see LLM flourish under Chelsea and team and are excited for them and the organization!", says Ami Lanning. And all are very excited for the concert on December 23rd!
Thank you, sponsors!
