Porch Party Mamas, Laura Vecchione opns

Inspired by playing and singing each others songs at their own "porch parties", these established Boston area musicians and singer/songwriters decided to combine their individual talents and create their own brand of Urban Folk, Country and Blues. They took their act on the road and "Porch Party Mamas" was born. All are seasoned players, each with their own pervasive individual music persona and critical accolades.

Tamsin CD Release Show, Adrianne Lenker opens

In many ways, the story of Tamsin Wilson’s beginnings as a musician explains her current sound. A curious 15-year-old found a guitar in a dusty closet in a forgotten corner of her family home. What began as a blanket of basic chords, onto which she could place her words, slowly grew into a unique and ever-expanding style of music that transcends expectations and aims directly at the most vulnerable part of us – our minds.
