Ellis Paul family show

Ellis Paul is one of the leading voices in American songwriting and one of the top songwriters to emerge out of the fertile Boston folk scene. He helped create a movement that revitalized the national acoustic circuit with an urban, literate, folk rock style that helped renew interest in the genre in the 90's.

Tripping Lily, Catie Flynn opens

You only have to hear them once to become fans of Tripping Lily. This young quartet might be described as a string band with pop music sensibilities, or perhaps a cutting edge vocal quartet with acoustic instruments. Last year was a big year for Tripping Lily, highlighted by winning 2 Independent Music Awards for Best Folk Record and Best Acoustic Song, opening for Jazz artist Chris Botti, and being a featured guest for the Cape Cod Symphony’s Holiday Pops Spectacular.

Dan Bern & Common Rotation

Mt. Vernon, Iowa, is where Dan Bern was reared, the cello-playing, baseball-loving progeny of two Old World artists in the American heartland. In time Bern found the guitar, and his way to the West Coast, whre he got his footing in the neo-folk music scene in Los Angeles in the early 1990s. He put out his first album in 1997. Breathe is his seventh. In between, he's amassed a strong underground following, built in part on his prodigious output of intellectual and topical songs.

Jason Myles Goss CD Release Show, Jake Hill opens

Lori McKenna

Lori McKenna’s first name is actually Lorraine. Now you know. She is named after the mother she lost when she was only seven, but whose impact on Lori’s life reverberates to this day. In her sixth album, Lorraine, she considers the influence of her mother, who died at roughly the same age Lori is now, as well as her own place in relationship to her husband, family and community. It is her most personal album to date.
