UPCOMING CONCERTS:

*** April 24th  Rani Arbo & Greg Ryan Duo

                 Pot-luck lunch 2 pm     Concert 3 pm    

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.

*** May 22, 2016  Co-bill Lucy Wise and Ari & Mia

                          Pot luck Dinner 6 pm, Concert 7 pm  

 

Join Australia’s folk darling, Lucy Wise, and New England’s Americana sister act, Ari & Mia, for an intimate evening of fine acoustic music. This cross-continental collaboration began when Ari& Mia toured Australia with Lucy back in 2014, splitting shows and performing together as a trio to critical acclaim. If they were not separated by so many miles, the three women would tour together all the time.  Don’t miss this rare collaboration in our intimate listening space!

*** 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! 

 

*** Mike Agranoff  June 4th, 2017

           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.
