The Kennedys in Concert, April 4, 2015
Saturday, April 4, 2015 $20 Members, $22 Non-Members(General tickets) In a career that now spans two decades, New York duo Pete and Maura Kennedy have traversed a broad musical landscape, surveying power pop, acoustic songwriting, organic rock rooted in their early days in Austin, and a Byrds-inspired jangle that drew the attention of Roger McGuinn, Steve Earle, and most notably Nanci Griffith. The duo co-produced Nanci's latest CD. On their own recent release, "Closer Than You Know," the songs have a quality, inherent in Maura's voice, that is both soothing and urgent. As writers and producers, the Kennedys continue to mature, from their early style-conscious pop to today's burnished sheen. Always tuned to their own muse, Pete and Maura continue to come up with a unique sound that is as uplifting as it is unclassifiable.

Vance Gilbert in Concert, Jan 3, 2015
Saturday, January 3, 2015 $20 Members, $22 Non-Members(General tickets) Vance Gilbert burst onto the singer/songwriter scene in the early 90s when the buzz spread through the folk clubs of the Northeast about an ex-multicultural arts teacher who was knocking them dead at open mics. Word got out about this Philadelphia-area born and raised performer, and Shawn Colvin invited Gilbert to be a special guest on her 1992 Fat City tour. Gilbert took audiences across North America by storm. "With the voice of an angel, the wit of a devil, and the guitar playing of a god, it was enough to earn him that rarity: an encore for an opener" wrote the Fort Worth Star-Telegram in its review of a show from that tour. Gilbert's three albums for the Rounder/Philo label Edgewise (1994), Fugitives (1995), and Shaking Off Gravity (1998) are all essential additions to the American singer-songwriter collection. With guests as varied as Tuck and Patti, Jonatha Brooke, Patty Larkin, Vinx, and Jane Siberry, all three albums found significant niches on NAC (New Adult Contemporary) and Non-Commercial A3 radio. These discs were followed by the self-released Somerville Live (2000), lionized by the Boston Globe as the disc "young songwriters should study the way law students cram for bar exams," and One Thru Fourteen (2002), a stylistically varied offering that New York's Town and Village called "lively, eclectic, electrifying and transcending." Gilbert followed with Side Of The Road (2003), a duo album with Ellis Paul, lauded as "haunting, artful, and lovely" by Boston Magazine and nominated for a 2004 Boston Music Award. Then came Unfamiliar Moon (2005). "The songwriter's most compelling work; literate, heartfelt, ripplingemotionally resonant songs" raved the Boston Globe, placing the album in its Top 10 CDs of the year (#4). On Angels, Castles, Covers (2006), "Gilbert's choice of an album of covers seems both fitting and fearless. he displays his vocal virtuosity with some unexpected choices from the late 20th century songbook. From the sounds of Motown, through the R&B of Al Green to classic Joni Mitchell and Shawn ColvinHe makes each and every tune sound fresh and new," writes Roberta Schwartz of FAME. Gilbert then launched into a year and a half as support for George Carlin, leading up to the creation and recording of Up On Rockfield (2008), a landmark album noted for being written in the styles of some of his favorite songwriters. Of this disk Vintage Guitar proclaimed that "His fervor for composing is as powerful as a Colorado thunderstormaccomplishing the seemingly impossibleUp On Rockfield should be on your must hear list.

Ellis Paul in Concert
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

The album was ranked at #2 nationally in February 2009 in the Roots Music Report for acoustic/folk releases.

Amy Black in Concert, Dec 6, 2014
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!"

Michael Troy and Bill Motte in Concert
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. Check www.facebook.com/BillMotteSongwriter for shows.
