Saturday, Fabruary 7, 2015 $18 Members, $20 Non-Members(General tickets) Michael Troy was born and raised in the rough-and-tumble mill town of Fall River, Mass. In many ways, his life reflects the lives of the hard-working common folk who populate this part of New England. Having spent parts of his own life as a mill worker, fisherman, laborer and carpenter, and most of his adult years as a husband and father, Michael has traveled many paths, and the experience and wisdom he's gleaned along the way echoes through his music. A magical storyteller with a gift for melody, a deep rich voice, excellent finger-pickin' skills and the ability to compose outstanding stanzas of substance, Michael's plaintive ballads speak of the hills and mills of Fall River and of childhood dreams not quite forgotten in the adult quest to make an honest living. Michael has won many awards for his music, including the 2004 Boston Folk Festival Songwriter's Contest, the 2004 Founders Title Folk and Bluegrass Festival Songwriter's Contest, the 2007 New England Songwriting Contest and the 2010 Kerrville New Folk Songwriting Contest. Well known on the coffeehouse scene, singer-songwriter Bill Motte's songs reflect a life well lived, with his personal experiences and far-ranging travels deeply felt in many of his tunes. Bill's CD releases include "Thinking of You" (2013) and "Memphis Rain" (2012). Hailed by one of his fans during a performance as "the best singer-songwriter on the South Shore", Bill has shown himself to be a literate and astute observer of human interactions. The wry commentary in his precisely chosen lyrics and engaging performance leaves listeners really feeling the emotions evoked in the stories he weaves in his songs. Skillfully accompanying himself on guitar, when Bill's song is sung, you feel as if you've known everyone who is part of his tale. With Bill's passion for songwriting in a league of its own, there are few artists who can tell life's stories so vividly. Recent area appearances include Retunes and Bluegrass on the Bogs.

Saturday, May 3, 2014 $23 Members, $25 Non-Members(General tickets) Woody Guthrie's daughter, Nora, says of Ellis Paul, "A singer and songwriter is only as good as the times he reflects. Wise, tender, brilliant and biting, Ellis is one of our best human compasses, marking in melodies and poems where we've been and where we might go if we so choose to. Personally Ellis, I'm goin' where you're goin'!" Ellis Paul is a critically-acclaimed singer, songwriter, poet, and troubadour originally hailing from a potato farming family in northern Maine, and began performing locally while attending Boston College. He is the recipient of thirteen Boston Music Awards, second only to multi-platinum act, Aerosmith. Over the course of fifteen years, Ellis Paul has built a vast catalog of music, which weds striking poetic imagery and philosophical introspection with hook-laden melodies. His 2011 release "The Day after Everything Changed" was recorded in Nashville, and features five songs co-written by his good friend, Kristian Bush of Sugarland. Recent releases include two award winning family albums and a holiday album. Ellis Paul's latest new fan-funded studio album, "Chasing Beauty", is set for release in March 2014. "Despite his success and sense of history, Mr. Paul remains an artist with his eye on the future and an interest in discovering the transformative potential of his music." New York Times

Saturday, December 6, 2014 $20 Members, $22 Non-Members(General tickets) Amy Black Concert Saturday December 6, 2014 8:00 pm $20 Members / $22 Non-Members Amy Black is a Boston-based singer/songwriter with storytelling and Southern tradition in her blood. In record time, she's become one of the most sought after acts in the East, sharing stages with Chris Isaak, The Courtyard Hounds, Emmylou Harris and Rodney Crowell and headlining at some of the region's best venues. Amy teamed up with a guitar player she found on Craigslist to play at a local open mic. "I did an acoustic rendition of a favorite '80s song "I Ain't Missing You" by John Waits and that was it. I built a band and did my first real show. I had 50 people come out, then 75 at my second, and 100 at my third. It was a done deal at that point. I knew I was on to something." Amy Black's been playing, touring and writing ever since, and this year, with the release of her second solo album of originals, This Is Home, (Feb 4, 2014) she has fully committed herself to a career in music. "I've stepped away from corporate life because doing music feels like the most natural thing. I'm in my element when I'm singing on stage, like it's exactly where I'm meant to be. And with This Is Home I feel that I've truly found my voice. What's coming out of me is soulful and it's pulling from a deeper place. I see that there's some maturity that's come as I have more years under my belt. I'd like to believe that I'm like a fine wine that gets better well, you know the rest!"
