Since playing shows together in Small Town Concert Series and joining musical forces, the melodic amalgamation of Lauren Agnelli with Matthew Male, Brian Wolfe, Rose Bengston and Rodney Maxwell has become more than just some pretty mucking about – they’re now officially Amalgamated Muck!
Best described musically as Americana Music – roots, country, and folk with rock & blues mixed in -‐-‐ Amalgamated Muck does it best, with great harmonies and spirited performances of their own original songs, as well as some very tasteful choices of cover material.
Jazz pianist, educator and Middletown resident Noah Baerman recently celebrated the release of his seventh album under his own name, “Turtle Steps.” For this performance he will be playing some new music with some old friends. Expect to hear some different sounds (slide guitar, anyone?) as well as tunes from Noah’s previous records.
A bold new sound has emerged in New England’s traditional music scene: The Press Gang fuses the talents of squeezebox player Christian “Junior” Stevens, fiddler Alden Robinson, and guitarist Owen Marshall into an energetic musical partnership. The trio blends their skill in traditional Irish music with their curiosity for other styles.
Sean has played guitar for Sarah McLachlan at her peak for 12 years (40 million units sold!) - and at the Grammy awards twice – David Letterman 3 times / Tonight Show 4 times / SNL and many other great highlights. Sean went solo about 4 years ago.
His show is a singer songwriter / guitar nerd, alt country rock, bluesy rootsy music, country as well as some fun stuff like the odd surf guitar song (He plays the big Hollow body Gretsch guitars and a lot of slide on lap steel or Weisenbourn)
