***  December 10th:     Alex Smith

 Pot luck Dinner 6 PM, Concert 7 Donation $20


Alex grew up in Long Lake, my home town, in the heart of New York's Adirondack Park!  I'm very excited to have him play for us.  His music strives first and foremost to echo the people of that area. He builds songs from a blend of traditional folk harmony and modern lyrics.  A rising star, not to be missed!!

***January 21, 2016:  Will Woodson and Eric McDonald


       Pot luck dinner 6 PM, Concert at 7 PM   Donation $20


Will Woodson and Eric McDonald are two of today’s finest young proponents of traditional Scottish music. They’ve spent countless hours playing music together, developing a meaningful and refined partnership. With an unusual blend of wind and plucked strings, they bring a welcome sensitivity to a tradition that is often known for its high velocity. Still, their music is full of drive and energy. It’s the sum product of two musicians well versed in their tradition, playing honest and at times risky music.

*** April 24, 2016  Rani Arbo & Greg Ryan Duo

    Pot-luck lunch 2 pm     Concert 3 pm     Donation $20

Rani Arbo & Greg Ryan Duo is a fun, intricate, and soulful combination of two master musicians with great alchemy. It's a side project — a rare flower that blooms only a few times a year, but brings its players (and audiences!) a sustaining and memorable musical experience. The show features Arbo’s wry, reflective originals, as well as traditional and cover songs. Together with Ryan’s rich, gravelly singing and emotive, powerful guitar, the duo swings from subtle fingerstyle to high-octane swing, to fiddle-driven, high-speed songs of love and loss.

Hailing from the far South Western corner of Australia, singer-songwriter Lucy Wise has delighted audiences across Australia, New Zealand and the UK with her unique blend of folk, chamber and pop music combined with masterful storytelling.


“Ari & Mia blend a traditional rootsy grounding with a clear background of classical training. Their own works are soothing and fresh, tasteful and accomplished. This duo is taking the classical study of a conservatory program and bringing it alive in folk touring circles,.” — SingOut! Magazine.
