The Wild Hearts: Betsy-Dawn Williams & Josh Gordon - Summer on Strong

Summer On Strong (Strong Ave. Northampton)

Entertainment + Food/Drink + Music + Nightlife
The Wild Hearts are an eclectic duo featuring a mix of original works and hippie-era rock & roll, roots country, bossa novas, standards and jazz-pop.  
Betsy-Dawn Williams – lead vocals & rhythm guitar and Josh Gordon – lead guitar & electric violin, comprise this musical project. Williams has two CD releases of original works on the indie-European roots music label El Toro Records, and was a founding member of the band GiRL HOWDY, a Valley fave in their day, and led her rockabilly combo Li’l BeeDee & the Doo-Rites.  
Josh Gordon has a lengthy resume playing with musical notables in Nashville, Chicago, and NYC, including Sam Andrew (of Big Brother & the Holding Company and Janis Joplin), The OK Club, an all-star band with members of Billy Joel's and Joan Jett's touring bands, lead guitarist with George Buford (Muddy Waters, Jr.) in a long-running weekly gig at Chicago's legendary Checkerboard Lounge.

Summer on Strong is a summer-long party here on Strong Avenue in Northampton, MA. When the weather warms up, our side-street becomes pedestrian-only, so we can dine outdoors, stroll the shops, dance in the street, and celebrate community. Join us!
