Pennies for Poverty Fundraiser presents Liz Frame and the Kickers
Friday, October 25
Liz Frame wrote her first song at age nine, and has been performing her own brand of rootsy Americana music since her early teens. She spent her childhood listening to the artists her parents loved – Jimmie Rogers, The Weavers, B.B. King, Elvis Presley – to name just a few, absorbing their sounds and ultimately allowing them to influence her own. At fourteen she picked up the guitar and has been hooked on the process of making music ever since.
In 1980, after years of travel with her family that allowed Ms. Frame to see dozens of US states and several continents, she and her family finally settled outside of Boston, Massachusetts. Shortly thereafter, she began seriously pursuing a career in music, becoming an active member of the country music/rockabilly scene in the city during the eighties and nineties. Fronting her own band, she garnered serious interest from both major and independent record labels during this time, but ultimately decided against the rigors of the business to concentrate on family. Now that her daughter, a gifted working musician in her own right, is grown, she is once again free to pursue what she loves most – making infectious, heart-felt and at times raucous music that appeals to everyone from eight to eighty!
The band has just returned from a six state three-week tour of the mid-Atlantic that saw them playing rooms in Nashville, Washington DC and Raleigh, among other cities. They landed a coveted spot at the Kent Sate ‘Round Town Music Fest opening for Dawes, and are participants in this year’s New England Americana Fest. Come spend an evening with these up-and-coming favorites and find out why their star is on the rise!
About Pennies for Poverty:
Pennies For Poverty, a Greater Newburyport nonprofit organization, is dedicated to alleviating poverty in our area in innovative ways. We help support the five antipoverty agencies (Salvation Army and Community Action in Newburyport, Pettengill House in Salisbury, Our Neighbor’s Table and Community Action in Amesbury) by providing them with cash that we raise in the community, and by providing them with gift cards that we have purchased from local farms and food stores with money raised at those locations. This improves the quality of food that these agencies can provide their clients, and the purchasing of gift cards also helps support the local economy. They are thrilled that Liz Frame and the Kickers have agreed to support our work by performing their superb music at our fundraiser.
This event is presented by Pennies for Poverty.
