With engaging stage presence and masterfully-crafted music, Matt & Shannon Heaton offer well-travelled Irish music from the heart.  Steeped in sessions in County Clare and brewed in the acoustic music scenes of  Chicago & Boston, their flute/guitar/bouzouki instrumentals and sweet husband-and-wife harmony singing draw deeply from the Irish tradition, as well as Thai music and rootsy Americana.

*** February 4th, 2017   Rani Arbo & Greg Ryan

                                         Time TBD

 

Rani and Greg put on a great show for a sold-out audience on their first visit.  Coming back by popular demand, they will feature some new tunes along with old favorites.  Reserve early, this show will sell out.  Here's a sample of their vocal and instrumental synergy from that first show:

*** May 7th, 2017  The Rough & Tumble

Pot-luck cook-out 2 pm, Concert at 3

 

 The Rough & Tumble used to say they were from Nashville, TN.  That was before April 2015 when 5 year members Mallory Graham and Scott Tyler quit their day jobs, sold everything they owned, and gave their thirty day notice on their rental house to trade in for a life permanently on the road.  With their sixteen foot camper and their 97 pound dog, Butter, they have been touring nationwide.  This americana-folk duo are a compact team of close harmonies, versatile instrumentation, and eclectic songwriting,  perfect for the faint of heart and the strong of will!

            Pot-luck cookout 2 pm, Concert at 3

If you've been around the folk scene, you couldn't miss seeing Mike. Tall, ginger beard, and always around where the music is. He's been on the scene for many many years, listening to the fine details of what makes this genre of music so special to the soul, so able to make us laugh and cry and think. And lucky for us all, he got serious about having fun at it.
