Hannah Christianson

The Red Room presents the New Brew Lunchtime Concert Series. Every Tuesday and Thursday, Berklee students, staff, or faculty help you either slow down or power up for the afternoon. Concerts are free, all-ages, and open to the public. Bring your lunch, snag a coffee, and grab a seat for our New Brew performances—they’re good for the soul. Today's featured artist is Hannah Christianson.

Hannah Christianson is a music therapy and songwriting major of note. Her thoughtful writing encompasses the human condition with honesty, charisma, and hope. Peter Swenson, director of social media at CD Baby, described it as "A good mix of sweetness and pop sensibility, with an engaging voice that sounds like fine wine." Christianson received an honorable mention in Berklee's prestigious Performer/Songwriter Contest and performed in the Best of Berklee's Songwriters Showcase. Her song "Let's Be Frisbees" was recently featured on a compilation album for the Raising the Blues Foundation, which distributes uplifting music to children's hospitals in the New England area.  

Christianson plans to spend the spring playing music and traveling around Europe, taking classes, and learning to play the harp. An EP release and first United States tour are also on the horizon.

Direct from Seville, Gypsy flamenco dance icon Angelita Vargas and the young, dynamic Jairo Barrull join together for a mesmerizing night of Gypsy flamenco.

Vargas swept Broadway in the 1980s with Flamenco Puro and was recently featured in a piece with the Farruco family that toured extensively to wide acclaim throughout Europe. Barrull, who is the great-grandnephew of legendary guitarist Diego del Gastor, has performed with such important figures as Concha Vargas and Juana Amaya. With guest artist Juan del Gastor, Gitanerías honors the passing down of flamenco traditions from generation to generation in the Gypsy community, where dance is an expression of cultural identity.

Zarni De Wet

The Red Room presents the New Brew Lunchtime Concert Series. Every Tuesday and Thursday, Berklee students, staff, or faculty help you either slow down or power up for the afternoon. Concerts are free, all-ages, and open to the public. Bring your lunch, snag a coffee, and grab a seat for our New Brew performances—they're good for the soul. This week's featured artist is Zarni De Wet.

De Wet has been showcased on several TV series for WSKG-TV, NewsChannel 34, and Winchester Community TV. She has appeared in several newspapers ranging from upstate New York all the way to Philly. She has also toured and opened for big names like the Mike Lombardo Trio and Nikolas Metaxas, with a list of venues ranging from the Bitter End in New York City to the smallest and most regularly visited bars in Nowhereville, Pennsylvania to Chicago's favorite coffee shops to private concerts in Cyprus and South Africa. Her album Friday Night Lights was released in January 2010 to much success. Two of the tracks have been competition winners.

The rest seems irrelevant, as De Wet's main focus is to touch her audience—she doesn't care if there are 300 people or three. In the next several months De Wet will be teaming up with witty and proactive producer Matt McArthur from Boston to work on an EP that will be released next year. She is also still finishing her double major in songwriting and music education at Berklee.
