Scheduled Performances for 2019:  
August 22 ( Thursday): Ruthie Foster (Solo Performance) click for details
Don't get me wrong.... We LOVE Ruthie any way we can get her, but this is my favorite way to see Ruthie...solo..it was how I first heard her many years ago, and it stopped me dead in my tracks.

Ruthie is mostly considered a blues singer, sometimes a folkie, and sometimes known for being a songwriter. But if you have seen her, you know her as one of the most soulful singers out there today no matter what she sings.. Her shows lift you up and her spirit will stay with you long after you have left our barn. A Grammy nominated artist with multiple awards to her resume, she is admired by many of her peers in the musical community. "I love Ruthie Foster. That's my little sister. A phenomenal woman, yes indeed. She's great."- Mavis Staples

A seal of approval from Miss Mavis, would be enough for me....but if you need more assurance, come see the "phenomenal" Ruthie Foster. Comes Highly SMAC Recommended.

August 23 ( Friday): Los Straitjackets click for details
Mixing the rockin vintage sounds of Dick Dale, Duane Eddy, and the Ventures, Los Straitjackets create their own version of energetic surf guitar twang, complete with Mexican wrestling masks. What? Yes masks…they obviously put on a show..a rock and roll show that is, with all the fixins. And these guys are not just a surf band…you guitar weenies will not be disappointed. :>) And bring your dancin' shoes..really! On a personal; note long before SMAC, I once had to follow them at show with my sensitive folkie self. Can you imagine? I was so mad at them and mad in love with them! This was the song they did just before I had to next act them with my gloomy musings of unrequited love…talk about a Debbie downer. Well there will be no Debbies at this show!! And by the way, I would still follow them anytime! My favorite band…enjoy this YouTube video.

August 30 ( Friday): Knots and Crosses click for details
Carol Noonan, Alan Williams, and Ric k Harris
Folk Rockers Knots and Crosses was a core trio of myself Carol Noonan, Alan Williams and Rick Harris. With a rhythm section of Ben Wittman and Greg Porter. Popular in the early 1990s, a cult favorite of the nineties folk-rock-pop explosion. ..... a typical but fresh sound for the time. They were known for their catchy songs, strong harmonies, and guitar driven melodies. Their hit, "Creatures of Habit "got a frenzy of airplay and won them a huge New England fan base and a record company signing.

Courted by many major labels they did an early demo with Capitol Records and then a similar courting with Island Records who they eventually signed with. Before signing, the band's was one of the first and original DIY stories. Their two albums, "Creatures of Habit" and "Curve of the Earth", sold over 20,000 copies, impressive for a bad with no distribution, that were self-produced, self-promoted, and again self-distributed…AND NO INTERNET!!!

The Boston Globe wrote that "the gifts these three musicians blended in Knots and Crosses seemed to be the springboard toward international fame." And when were signed to Island Records it seemed that prediction was right; but it proved to be a classic example of a record deal gone bad. After getting dropped by the major label and a year of frustration waiting, they were left with the task of putting out another album on our own. After a frustrating year, a marriage and a group split up, and they played their last show in mid-May 1994 to a bittersweet crowd.

Five years later a compilation of our two albums was released by the label Signature Sounds. "THERE WAS A TIME" is a collection of cuts from both albums, along with two new songs the band penned for the sessions. Remastered, a few new mixes, this music still stands on its own, and today the band still has lot of fans still asking for a reunion. On a personal; note I still get emails from people who remember our rock band days fondly, and have worn out their old cassettes. On any given night we might have encored with a version of Gimme Shelter or White Room. I miss those days a lot, and I hope to be able to relive some of those rock and roll notes. Like me, some of our fans had a hard time letting go but we didn't want to do a reunion unless we got all the original members. So for Knots and Knots Fans, were are back, a little older, a little wiser, but a lot grateful for this opportunity to relive “There Was a Time”.

NOTE: SMAC Memberships are available for this Friday show only.

September 1
(Sunday): Ward Hayden & The Outliers click for details
Formerly Girls, Guns and Glory
This band gets better every time we hear them, and they will have a new album to celebrate come the fall that we are all excited about! The twangy country rock and roll sounds of this fun band, is fronted by SMAC favorite and crooner Ward Hayden (we love him!) A smooth, authentic honky tonk/early rock & roll vibe with some country-folk thrown in there too...it is hard to peg these guys....but that's a good thing! For listenin' or for dancin’. A great way to say goodbye to summer!

September 6 ( Friday): Paula Poundstone click for details
Wooohoooo..she's back again.....our favorite funny girl. An NPR darling, heard on Wait Wait Don't Tell Me, Paula has been making us laugh almost every year since we have opened. From her comedy specials, to her live shows, she is hysterical, witty, and her improv with the crowd is the highlight of the evening. She has a new podcast, Nobody Listens to Paula Poundstone, and there's a new episode every week to get your Paula fix. . Her HBO standup special was just picked by TIME magazine as one of the 5 funniest standup specials of all time and her book was one of eight semi-finalists in the Country for the Thurber Prize for American Humor, the highest recognition of the art of humor writing in the United States. Lots of accolades for this funny gal. A quick sell out every time, so get your ticket early!

September 13 ( Friday): Ferro Gaita click for details
Wow…we have been trying to get this Cape Verdean Band back for ages!!! They are so great and fun!!! Maybe summer doesn't have to be over! Read about their interesting history:

The name “Ferro Gaita” comes from the combination of two instruments, the ferro (piece of iron played with a knife) and the gaita (kind of accordion), used to play the Funaná, style of traditional music more played by this band. This style started in the 19th century with the arrival of the accordion in Cape Verde, by the Portuguese priests, for the churches, but this instrument was taken over by the black and mulato slaves, that used him to sing their soul and their problems, motives that led it to be forbidden in public places until the independence in 1975.

In July 1996, three young musicians started the band that with the Ferro, Gaita, Drums and Bass, causing a revolution on the Cape Verdean musical scene, reviving the traditional music from santiago island.

In June 1997, the band recorded in Rotterdam – Holland, the first CD called “Fundu Baxu”, with traditional music such as Funaná and Batuko, that was the most sold CD in Cape Verde in that year, recording two years later in 1999 the second CD called “Rei di tabanka” that had the addition of Tabanka to the other styles and was also a big success.

In 2001, the Band presented a compilation to the European market called “Rei di Funaná” and toured all over Europe in shows alone and under the wing of great Cape Verdean artists such as Cesária Evora, Luis Morais and Ildo Lobo.

In 2002 the band was nominated to the Kora Awards (biggest prize in african music) as best traditional band. In December 2003 the Band launched the third CD called “bandera Liberdadi”, that has been a big success in Cape Verde and abroad, adding the Ladainha and tabanka Reza to the other musical styles previously recorded.In 2006, the Band recorded a Live CD and DVD, in front of more than 20.000 people, in celebration of its 10th anniversary that came out in december 2006.

In 2007 the band was given a cultural medal by the government and was honored by the minister of culture of cape verde for cultural services. After a busy agenda of shows in 2007 and 2008, the band launched in December 22nd 2008, it´s 4th cd of originals called “Cidade Velha”.In 2010 the band was honored by the president of cape verde and in 2011, 2012 and 2016 won the CVMA as best live band.

They are the best live band in our book too. And a big thanks to John Mooney for helping to make this happen!! Check out this video and watch them play.

September 14 ( Saturday): Steve 'N' Seagulls click for details
Grainsville North American Tour 2019
Okay..just the name sold me..and honestly i don't know whether to be scared or excited for these giuys..Yes I do know..Im wicked excited. This hard rockin metal head of a bluegrass band is not for the faint of heart music lover. Playing bluegrass versions of classic rock and metal songs while embracing their farming and rural roots, the band became known in the summer of 2014 with the publication of videos on YouTube. Especially popular was the band's version of "Thunderstruck" by AC/DC which received over 79 million views on YouTube. Check it out. But don't let their campy approach to these cover songs fool you., They are crazy inventive and crazy good players. There are so many good videos that they have made that I didn't know where to begin..so go to their web page and kill an hour with them, Video page. And here is my fav….”you shook me all night long”. I think they will shake out barn al night long..and by the way, they are quite comfy in a barn!!! We are so lucky to get them here on their US visit. Don't miss this Staff Pick!

September 15 ( Sunday): Mountain Top's 4th Annual Majuedstic Gala click for details

September 17 ( Tuesday): Infamous Stringdusters click for details
(this is a seated show)
"With a nod to the past and a firm foot down on the gas toward the future, the 'Dusters... don't leave bluegrass behind; they're stretching it from within." - New York Times

I love that review! This is not your rocking chair bluegrass show! Since 2007 this high energy progressive bluegrass band has ben nominated and won at the Grammys, and multiple racked up multiple IBMA awards. But its the live show that has made them soar. Usually a standing room kinda show, they have made an exception for us. Make no mistake the live show will be just as ruckus, including their “infamous” Jam Band roots visiting, long improvisational and instrumental moments through the performance. We are so happy they have come back to see us..a rare intimate show.

September 19
(Thursday): Oliver the Crow click for details
Just Listen to this.

Ya know, we get a lotta folks sending us music to be considered for a performance here at SMAC. I wish I could get to them all, but its really hard to get the time to thoughtfully listen. And it's a challenge to bring acts here that might be unknown to our neck of the woods. But once in a while something makes me open an email or a YouTube. It was snowing, I had. cup of tea, and I clicked on this band’s youtube....so glad I did. They were here last year and we hope to pack the house for them this year. They are a little Civil Wars a little Gillian and David, a little Natalie and Alasdair, a little Jay and Molly, but a lot unique and terrific. What is so cool about them is how they so simply and beautifully, use their cello and fiddle only..no other instruments but their soulful voices. Here are two YouTubes you should check out : I just love this first old tune, and this is what hooked me in. Kaitlyn sings on her own here, but listen to the second YouTube too, so you can hear them together.

* Ticket admission is free but you have to make a reservation with a credit card to claim your seat.( Any "No shows" will be charged 10.00 )

* In that spirit of providing, we ask that if possible, you bring a donation in the form of cat or dog food, laundry detergent, bleach or hardwood pellets for the Harvest Hills Animal Shelter.

September 20 ( Friday): Suzy Bogguss click for details
Woohoooo....our favorite country gal!!!!! It is like one of our own is coming home when Suzy is here. One reviewer said: "Of the long list of Nashville women, only a few stand out for technically pristine voices, and Suzy Bogguss, with her wonderfully clear contralto and pinpoint intonation, is near the top of the list" In a nut shell the CMA, ACM and Grammy Award-winning Suzy Bogguss has just a great, great voice....a creamy, velvety and super sweet sound just like her personality. She is the ultimate fan favorite signing autographs till the last taillight fades into the night. It's gonna be a great show, cause who doesn't love Suzy!!!

September 26
(Thursday): GoldenOak click for details
The best kept secret in Maine!!! This homespun, family-oriented indie folk group from Portland provides evidence that the dense woods of the Pine Tree State might just be a better muse than the slick streets of New York and LA.

GoldenOak is driven by the songwriting and harmonies of the brother-sister duo Zak and Lena Kendall. In many ways, the themes of GoldenOak’s music are driven by their home base. “Maine is such an interesting place to be an artist,” Zak says. “It’s so remote in a lot of ways. And the landscape and the woods are so inspiring. People are often spread out, but there’s also this amazing artistic community, not only in Portland but also in the towns all over Maine.”

“Being in a place like Maine, we’re not surrounded by buildings. I think the art is very reflective of the landscape, the nature of Maine. As you walk through the woods, you never see the same thing twice. And I think that represents the Maine music scene in a perfect way.” That music scene has thrown its arms around GoldenOak, and, in return, the band is helping to draw more attention to it with some excellent new songs. ( River and Poet and the Painter) “The Portland music scene is so friendly and welcoming,” Zak says. “I think, unfortunately, a lot of music scenes get competitive by nature. But that’s something you just don’t find in Portland. There’s just a lot of fantastic people involved in it that kind of have that ‘Mainer’ attitude to help each other out and support each other.” We couldn't agree more! Check them out.

* Ticket admission is free but you have to make a reservation with a credit card to claim your seat. Any "No shows" will be charged 10.00

* In that spirit of providing, we ask that if possible, you bring a donation in the form of cat or dog food, laundry detergent, bleach or hardwood pellets for the Harvest Hills Animal Shelter.

September 27 (Friday): Keller Williams click for details
On his web site instead of the usual header “tour dates”, it says,. "Keller in Action” And that sure sums him up. Known as a one man jam band, Keller Williams combines elements of bluegrass, folk, alternative rock, reggae,electronica/dance, jazz, funk, along with other assorted musical styles. He is a frequent sighting with bands like Yonder Mountain String Band and The String Cheese Incident and jam band festivals nationally.

Since he first appeared on the scene in the early '90s, Keller Williams has defined the term independent artist. And his 16 recordings tell only half the story. Keller built his reputation initially on his engaging live performances, no two of which are ever alike. Williams' solo live shows—and his ability to improvise to his determinedly quirky tunes despite the absence of an actual band—quickly became the stuff of legend, and his audience grew exponentially when word spread about this exciting, unpredictable performer. He is a singer, songwriter and musician, always on a quest for the new. Keller Williams has never followed the prescribed path laid out by the conventional music business but rather one of his own making. It's a path that has served him well. And of course we don't take those typical paths either so we welcome that spirit here and his first visit to us up on the hill.

October 1 ( Tuesday): Rhiannon Giddens and Francesco Turrisi click for details
What we love about Rhiannon is not just her amazing musical talent, but her knowledge and virtuosity in regards to all the musical genres she embraces. Pairing with Francesco Turrisi is an Italian pianist and percussionist well versed in jazz, early music and Mediterranean music, she once again brings a new insight to her musical world while educating us along the way. She is as much cerebral about her music as she is artful and passionate. Adding the beautiful playing of Turrisi, they are a unique blend of styles and lyrical history. The massive effect that West African music and dance has had upon American culture is by now well known; but centuries before, European music was being transformed by Arabic and North African modes, instruments, and rhythms. Working together these two beautiful musicians they trace this musical globalism by reimagining the encounter of the banjo and the frame drum, and other instruments, through their journey from Africa, the Middle East, through southern Europe and England, and over to the Americas. Never a cookie cutter show when Rhiannon is here and how lucky we are to have these two with us. Take a minute to watch their YouTube.

October 3 ( Thursday): Iris DeMent click for details
with Special Guest Ana Egge
Oh Iris…she is just one of my top ten. Born the youngest of 14 children in Arkansas and raised in southern California that early life is what makes Iris, Iris, but that stark pairing of piano and voice forms the heart and soul of Iris' music. Not really folk, not really country, but somewhere in between that is completely unique. Her voice is unlike any other, and she is a rare an moving performer. Beginning with her 1992 debut, 'Infamous Angel,' which was hailed as "an essential album of the 1990's" by Rolling Stone, DeMent released a series of stellar records that established her as "one of the finest singer-songwriters in America" according to The Guardian. The music earned her multiple Grammy nominations, as well as the respect of peers like John Prine, Steve Earle, and Emmylou Harris, who all invited her to collaborate. Merle Haggard dubbed her "the best singer I've ever heard" and asked her to join his touring band, and David Byrne and Natalie Merchant famously covered her "Let The Mystery Be" as a duet on MTV Unplugged. DeMent returned in 2012 with her most recent album, 'Sing The Delta,' which prompted NPR to call her "one of the great voices in contemporary popular music" and The Boston Globe to hail the collection as "a work of rare, unvarnished grace and power." Recently her song Let the Mystery Be was the opening song HBO”s “Leftovers” and she's creating some of the most poignant music of her career, but I can’t help but revisit this clip with EmmyLou…...oh and check out a long haired Jerry Douglas on dobro! Come see a special show from a very special artist .

October 6 ( Sunday): The Jeremiahs click for details
The Chicago Irish news says, “This is the most creative and important group we have heard in Irish music in years, they are special” That is how I felt when i heard them...The Jeremiahs combine traditional and contemporary sounds to create their own brand of Urban Folk music. Since founding in 2013 the trio have trail blazed across Ireland and Europe playing some of the top venues and Festivals. Joe Gibney on Vocals and whistle , James Ryan on Guitar and Bouzouki, and Jean Christophe Morel on Fiddle and Mandola, all award winning musicians. We are really excited to bring this group to SMAC for the first time.

Here are a couple of samples, one mellow and one a little more toe tappin' ...
a beautufl ballad OR a cool Irish jam

October 10 ( Thursday): Nitty Gritty Dirt Band... One Show Only! click for details
The iconic and profoundly influential Nitty Gritty Dirt Band, is often cited as a catalyst for an entire movement in Country Rock and American Roots Music. They are and will be Jeff Hanna, Jimmie Fadden, Bob Carpenter, and John McEuen. The band's successes include a cover version of Jerry Jeff Walker's "Mr. Bojangles". Albums include 1972's Will the Circle Be Unbroken, featuring such traditional country artists Mother Maybelle Carter, Earl Scruggs, Roy Acuff, Doc Watson, Merle Travis, and Jimmy Martin. A follow-up album based on the same concept, Will the Circle Be Unbroken: Volume Two was released in 1989, was certified gold and won two Grammy Awards and was named Album of the Year at the Country Music Association Awards. These albums made a big statement in the 70's and we will have to get ours signed when they come up the hill to play up close and personal! A quick sell out .

October 11 (Friday): Peter Mulvey and Catie Curtis click for details
Well, this is just as nice a pie kinda gig as you’re ever gonna get!!!

Peter Mulvey is a veteran singer and songwriter from Milwaukee, Wisconsin. He began his career on the streets of Dublin, Ireland, as a busker, and from there moved on to performing in the subways and streets of Boston,Massachusetts. This led to his first record deal and a leap to full-time national and international touring, beginning in the early Nineties. Mulvey is an iconoclast within the singer/songwriter world. Restless and inventive, he has made seventeen records, spanning rock and roll, folk, Jazz, spoken word, and Americana. A long-standing gig at the National Youth Science Camp led to a spoken word piece, “Vlad the Astrophysicist”, which became a TEDx talk, and then an illustrated book. In 2007 he began an annual late summer tour by bicycle instead of by car and airplane- the 10th annual bicycle tour will happen this September. He has taught songwriting and guitar workshops at the Swannanoa Gathering and at various folk festivals across the U.S.

Catie Curtis - Catie Curtis's list of accomplishments spans 14 albums, songs featured on TV shows “Grey’s Anatomy”, “Dawson’s Creek”, and “Felicity”; and movies like “Finding Graceland” and “A Slipping Down Life”. For over 25 years, she has been a perennially popular headliner, appearing at Lilith Fair, Carnegie Hall, performing arts centers, concert halls, folk clubs, music festivals and the White House! She was even dubbed a “folk rock goddess” by The New Yorker. After a long and full touring career, and now with so many innovative ways to reach an audience,she has decided to retire from touring and embark on some new creative adventures. But that said, how lucky are we, that she will make an exception and get back in her car, guitar in tow, for their special night. Thanks Catie!!!

October 16 (Wednesday): We Banjo 3 details
Okay, anyone who hasn't seen this show last time was COMPLETELY OUTTA LUCK.!!!! To say it is the highlight of our year when this band is here, is an understatement. Don't let the name fool ya....these handsome Irish boys are not all about the banjo! We love them!! "It's as if the Punch Brothers, Sam Bush, Jerry Douglas and the Chieftains all got together for a battle of the bands but decided to pool their resources instead. The future of World Music has arrived." - Elmore Magazine

One of the best live acts to come out of Ireland in recent years is the multi-awarded winning We Banjo 3. With a 7 time all Ireland banjo champ, a 4 time banjo champ, and another member who is an all Ireland champ on both fiddle and Bodhran, and with a passionate lead vocalist like a young Springsteen adopted by the Chieftans, the result is truly unforgettable. On both sides of the Atlantic the word is out about this group.

WB3 has performed for President Barack Obama, Vice President Joe Biden, and Irish Prime Minister Enda Kenny and has headlined virtually every major US Celtic fest for several years in a row. Now the band is rapidly gaining favor in the Bluegrass and Americana world as evidenced by their invites to Merlefest, ROMP Fest, Sisters Folk Fest, Old Settlers Fest, Four Corners Fest and others. They are Rising Stars!! Be part of their early journey!

October 25 ( Friday): Amy Helm click for details
Amy Helm Daughter of Rock royalty the BAND'S Levon Helm, the apple does not fall far from the tree. She currently tours year round with her solo band and continues to perform and curate concerts at Levon Helm Studios in Woodstock, the home of the Midnight Ramble. A founding member of the alt country band favorite, Olabelle, she has done two solo albums since. This Too Shall Light, just released September 21, 2018 on Yep Roc Records, comprises 10 songs produced by Grammy-winning producer and songwriter Joe Henry. Helm left her home and comfort zone of Woodstock, NY, choosing to record in Los Angeles within the confines of just a four-day window. The musicians were directed not to over think the songs, and Helm herself barely performed any of the selections while leading up to the recording. As a result, the sessions forced fast musical trust among the collaborators and yielded the vibrant instrumental improvisations heard throughout This Too Shall Light.

Blessed with a commanding, deeply expressive voice and an uncanny songwriting skill that instinctively draws upon a deep well of American musical traditions, Amy Helm delivers a timelessly and powerful statement in all her work. I like this quote from her: "I think that the job of a musician is to try and shake people out of their own heads for an hour or two, and bring some joy into the world. So I want to get out there and do the job the best I can.’ And joy is right..we just love Amy!

November 1 (Friday): Roomful of Blues click for details
Though this band is the pride of New England they are known as one of the tightest, most joyful blues ensembles in the world. Currently an eight-piece unit led by guitarist Chris Vachon, the band has never sounded fresher or stronger. In 2010, singer Phil Pemberton took over the vocal duties, bringing his sweet and soulful vocals and adding another bright new dimension to the jazzy, jump-blues musical roots. Their winning combination of jump, swing, blues, R&B and soul remains their calling card, as does their ability to fill the dance floor. Along with newer members, bassist John Turner, trumpeter Carl Gerhard, drummer Chris Anzalone, and keyboardist Rusty Scott, and longtime members baritone and tenor saxophonist Mark Earley, tenor and alto saxophonist Rich Lataille , Roomful keeps on rockin’ and will rock our barn on a winter’s eve. Bring your dancin' shoes for the dance gallery or come to listen. Shake off the winter blues with Roomful of BLues! Check them out….and see how much fun you could have!

November 2
(Saturday): John Jorgenson Bluegrass Band click for details
J2B2 is an all-star bluegrass super group featuring four legendary, award-winning musicians – John Jorgenson on acoustic guitar, mandolin and vocals; Herb Pedersen on banjo, acoustic guitar and vocals; Mark Fain on bass; and Keith Sewell on acoustic guitar and vocals – delivering bluegrass like no one has ever heard it before. The band’s undeniable live shows have received stellar reviews and have the bluegrass world buzzing. The four combine forces to form a spot-on union of impeccable musicianship, incomparable songwriting, incredible harmony vocals (a fresh twist combining bluegrass with elements of West Coast folk rock) and seasoned showmanship. This is the “high lonesome sound” of American roots music at its finest. Take a minute to watch this video.

November 3 ( Sunday): Nick Lowe click for details
Nick Lowe has made his mark as a producer (Elvis Costello-Graham Parker-Pretenders-The Damned), songwriter of at least three songs you know by heart, short-lived career as a pop star, and a lengthy term as a musicians' musician. He is best known for his songs "Cruel to Be Kind" (a US Top 40 single) and "I Love the Sound of Breaking Glass" (a top 10 UK hit). Lowe also wrote "What's So Funny 'Bout Peace, Love, and Understanding".

But in his current second act as a silver-haired, tender-hearted but sharp-tongued singer-songwriter, he has no equal.

Starting with 1995's The Impossible Bird through to 2011's The Old Magic, Nick has turned out a fantastic string of albums, each one devised in his West London home, and recorded with a core of musicians who possess the same veteran savvy. Lowe brings wit and understated excellence to every performance, leading Ben Ratliff of the New York Times to describe his live show as "elegant and nearly devastating."

And on a personal note, Nick's "Dig My Mood" has a permanent position in our cd shuffle. Yes, i said, cd shuffle! We are so happy to have him back ...his last visit was a top ten night at SMAC.

November 4 ( Monday): An Evening with John Hiatt Solo and Acoustic details
with Special Guest Colin Elmore
"You know how writing goes for me,” John Hiatt says, offering a glimpse into his creative process. “I get a couple of lines going, and then I just tag along as the songs start to reveal themselves. You’ve just gotta jump inside and take the ride.”

Hiatt has been on that ride—as have we all, tagging along right beside him—for more than four decades now. The Eclipse Sessions, his newest collection, offers up his strongest set of songs in years. Long celebrated as a skilled storyteller and keen observer of life’s twists and turns, Hiatt can get at the heart of a knotty emotion or a moment in time with just a sharp, incisive lyric or witty turn of phrase.

With The Eclipse Sessions, Hiatt might very well be gearing up for yet another new career beginning. He considers the possibility. “Maybe,” he says, then laughs. “Or a last gasp! You be the judge!” He laughs again. “Either way, it’s good with me.” Last gasp? Hardly!!! We say it’s just another “slow turning” and are so happy to have him back to our humble stage.

NOTE: Sorry, SMAC memberships not available for this show.

November 7 ( Thursday): Bob Marley (comedian) click for details
We just can't book enough shows to satisfy Bob’s ever growing audience. And for good reason. Bob is not just our Maine comedian, he is one of the funniest people in the current world of comedy. His viral videos have thrust him into further popularity as one of the hottest and most sought after comedians in the country. But we are lucky he will still come to us! You know'em, you love'm...more than 15 years as a stand-up comic, Maine's own Bob Marley has been featured in his own special on Comedy Central, and is one of the few comics to do the complete late night TV circuit: The Late Show with David Letterman, The Tonight Show with Jay Leno, Late Night with Conan O’Brien and The Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson and Craig Kilborn. But all those accolades aside, he is just one of us, and we can't get enough of him. Expect yet another sell out.

November 14 ( Thursday): Ricky Skaggs and Kentucky Thunder click for details
Everyone should see Ricky Skaggs!! A life full of music. That's the story of Ricky Skaggs. By age 21, he was already considered a "recognized master" of one of America's most demanding art forms, but his career took him in other directions, catapulting him to popularity and success in the mainstream of country music. 2012 marked the 53rd year since Ricky struck his first chords on a mandolin, and this fourteen-time Grammy Award winner continues to do his part to lead the recent roots revival in music. With 12 consecutive Grammy-nominated classics behind him, all from his own Skaggs Family Records label, the diverse and masterful tones made by the gifted Skaggs come from a life dedicated to playing music that is both fed by the soul and felt by the heart. "This group of guys meets my approval every night," Ricky says. "Each and every one of the pickers in Kentucky Thunder totally amazes me in every show." The all-star lineup of Kentucky Thunder makes this show a bluegrass concert not to miss. And did I say, that Ricky and the band are just about the nicest guys you’re ever gonna meet!??

November 16 (Saturday): Harry Manx click for details
It takes begging and pleading to get harry to come to the Sates these days….I did and he is!!…What can I say about Harry....we have had him here many times....for a reason. Canadian artist (artist in every sense of the word) Harry Manx known as the "Mysticssippi" blues man has been called an "essential link" between the music of East and West, creating musical short stories that wed the tradition of the Blues with the depth of classical Indian ragas. I mean, who else would play a banjo, guitar and sitar, and keeps the beat with his feet....Oh, and great songs too....there is no one like him. He has created a unique sound that is hard to forget and deliciously addictive to listen to. We are obviously hooked on Harry too. As we said, his U.S. appearances can be a rare sighting, so we are so happy and lucky he is back! A Must See!!!

November 22 ( Friday): The Suitcase Junket click for details
He was here originally as part of our free music series and blew everyone away and has been a shooting star ever since. One man band, doesn't do this artist justice. Matt Lorenz (Suitcase) is an Artist, tinkerer, tunesmith, swamp Yankee, Matt Lorenz is a one-man salvage specialist singing into the hollow of a Dumpster guitar, slipping a broken bottleneck onto the slide finger, railing on a box of twisted forks and bones, rocking till every sound is ragged at its edges, till the house is singing back. Then, unplugging all the amps and letting one mountain ballad soar over the raw strings on that guitar. Every night is a hard-driving, blues-grinding, throat-singing search-and-rescue junket. Sooner or later everything rusts, busts, and gets tossed into the junk heap: iron, bones, leather, hot rods, muskrats, the night, the heart. The goal is to recover it. To waste nothing. To create new ways from old. This is The Suitcase Junket. Watch his YouTube video. Happy he is back with us…we just can’t ever get enough of him!

November 23 (Saturday): The Gibson Brother & Rob Ickes and Trey Hensley details
The Gibson Brothers
We just love the Gibsons. You name a bluegrass award and they have won it : Songwriter of the Year, Entertainer of the Year, Emerging Artist of the Year, Song of the Year, Vocal Group of the Year....and some of these multiple times! These brothers of bluegrass, write really amazing songs, have beautiful voices and are just the real deal. In a climate of new grass and a glut on new string bands, these brothers hold true to the old time bluegrass and country. Last year Bluegrass royalty Leigh and Eric Gibson stepped into what some might at first see as uncharted territory on their country-soul breakout Mockingbird, the new album produced by Grammy Award winners Dan Auerbach and Fergie Ferguson. A great album that expanded their audience to not just bluegrass but anyone who can appreciate their“brotherly” sound Many of you have seen them here at Christmas....they always bring the house down. They have a sound that is so sincere. Its like they grew up in a country band decades ago, when the divisions of country music were not so defined. But they are every bit of here for today's' stages. They have a killer band, and are a personal favorite of mine.

Rob and Trey:
Rob Ickes and Trey Hensley…a unique collaborative effort between two uniquely gifted musicians is bound to be a revelation to traditional music fans on several counts. Rob Ickes is a longtime, well-established instrumental giant, and Trey Hensley is newly arrived in Music City, bursting with talent both as a vocalist and guitarist. It’s gonna to be a great night!!!

November 29 ( Friday): Adam Ezra Group click for details
Blowing audiences away would seem their primary job, and they do it well…their shows here have been no exception. I took this quote from the first paragraph of a No Depression Magazine article. ."The Adam Ezra Group has built its reputation on self-described "sweaty, passionate," and enduring live performances. In fact, the Boston area ensemble's shows have become so notable that its fervent Northeast following has swapped more than 100 live bootleg recordings, which wouldn't be a problem for the band if it wasn't for one thing." That should tell you that seeing them live is where it's at. Adam and his band have been compared to Bruce and the E Street Band, ..like The Boss, he is a thoughtful singer songwriter fronting a rootsy, and sometimes folky rock band. The Group has been touring non-stop and packing venues across the country and shared the stage with Jason Miraz, Rusted Root, Bela Fleck, John Hiatt, Robert Randolph and the Family Band, Ziggy Marley, Little Feat and many others, With their new release underway the Adam Ezra Group will continue their national tour and come to us, with a new album Hurricane Wind and a momentum that is catapulting them towards being one of the country's most talked about bands. We are so happy to have them back. A quick sell out.

NEW YEAR'S EVE!
December 31
(Tuesday): Jonathan Edwards click for details.
This show supports our local NH Starting Point
A perfect show for NYE, and you will get home in time for your own countdown. Barefoot and tanned, Jonathan Edwards has never looked and sounded better. Of course he is known for his big hits, like "Sunshine" and "Shanty", but his music is as fresh now as when those tunes made him famous. Four decades into a stellar career of uncompromising musical integrity, the man simply delivers, night after night – songs of passion, songs of insight, songs of humor, all rendered in that pure and powerful tenor which, like fine wine, has only grown sweeter with age.

Starting Point:
Jonathan and Stone Mountain are happy to be able to support Starting Point….a non-profit organization dedicated to Services for Victims of Domestic & Sexual Violence. And what a great New Years resolution it is to support such a great cause.

NOTE:
* No Memberships allowed for this show
* Gold passes are permitted,but we have to limit tickets to 6
   
Scheduled Performances for 2020:  
January 17 (Friday): Susan Werner click for details
I don't know why Susan always seems to come see us in January after our break…but what a great way to start up again. The always awaited return of Susan, and we could be happier! Iowa born Susan Werner Dubbed by NPR as the "Empress of the Unexpected," A singer/songwriter by trade, but far from any category you might need to place her in. Susan is so many voices...from studying opera to diving into the folk scene.She is always creating and re-inventing herself while remaining true to who she is...a farm gal from rural America who tells their tales so eloquently. She is a consummate musician, mastering not just her voice, but piano and guitar as well. With multiple album releases and touring how she found the time to write a musical is another Susan Werner mystery....writing the music and lyrics for a musical based on the film "Bull Durham", which premiered in Atlanta in 2014. One of the best stage performers we have ever had grace our stage. A Critics choice and we could not agree more. Welcome back to SMAC Susan. A great start to 2020.

February 21
( Friday): JigJam click for details
JigJam are a multi-award winning quartet from the heart of the midlands in Ireland. Blending the best of traditional Irish music with Bluegrass and Americana in a new genre which has been branded as 'I-Grass' (Irish influenced Bluegrass), their onstage energy along with their virtuosic musical ability has captivated audiences throughout the world. "Here's an Irish band that's going to impact the world as hard as Clancy Brothers or U2 if they get only half a chance." MIDWEST RECORDS Jamie McKeogh, Cathal Guinan and Daithi Melia all hail from Tullamore, Co. Offaly with Co. Tipperary born Gavin Strappe completing the quartet. All four members grew up immersed in Irish traditional music and culture which is reflected by the band collectively achieving over twenty All-Ireland titles at Fleadh Cheoil na hÉireann competitions. They have now developed their own unique style of music influenced by American Folk music whilst staying true to their Irish roots. Described as 'The best Irish group so far in bluegrass' this sharply dressed outfit deliver an energy-fueled, foot-stomping live performance. All multi-instrumentalists, JigJam interchange between banjos, guitars, fiddles, mandolins and double bass onstage which creates an experience which is pleasing to both the eye and the ear. A nice song and video about a familiar move trip from Ireland to Boston.

March 21 ( Saturday): Kat Edmonson click for details
Back again….because everyone was blown away by Kat!!!!!

I saw this gal on CBS Saturday morning ("Saturday Sessions" is a great program that showcases rising stars.....highly recommend it). She is known most as a jazz singer, but she calls her music vintage pop. Whatever you call it, it is completely pure. She has shared stages with the likes of Lyle Lovett, Asleep at the Wheel, and Chris Isaac with appearances on Prairie Home Companion and E Town. When I heard her, there was something about her that reminded me of hearing Joni Mitchell when I was a kid.. She doesn't sound like her, or the music isn't the similar, but the command of her craft and her band reminds me of Joni. A terrific song writer with the sounds of a jazz singer, but the feel of an old folk singer.

Speaking of jazz, check out this video of one of the many sides of her. But this is the sweet song that stopped me in my tracks when I heard it.

And these are just samples of her live...take some time and get lost in some of her videos on YouTube. Like her songs, they are like mini vintage movies harkening back to a time when ceramic dogs and typewriters were the norm. (for some of us,it still is :>) There are so many great videos of her....too many to pick, so again, spend a few minutes and discover this amazing talent. Seems like everyone in the critical world knows about her.....now its your turn. Comes Very Very Highly SMAC Recommended. Don’t be the one that misses her this time!!!

April 18 ( Saturday): Mike Farris click for details
I read a review that said that ..."there aren't many current male singers who use their voices to soar, float and deliver material with the spiritual commitment of Mike Farris." I couldn't agree more. Grammy award winning MIke Farris s a truly soulful singer. If you are as tired as I am of the wimpy pop singers they are pumping out these days, than Mike Farris is the cure. I little renegade, a little Gospel, a little Sam Cooke , and a lot uniquely his own. Mike is here with his band, and we are wicked excited! Just what we need for a winter warm up! Check him out.

April 25
( Saturday): Judith Owen click for details
The first time we saw Welch born Judith Owen, she was with Richard Thompson’s 1000 year tour that we were lucky enough to get, and she blew us away with her musicianship and artistic stage presence. Soon after she came for a solo show that was a joyful night of Judith’s brand of music…beautiful, thoughtful and sometimes silly. She is a one woman show for sure sharing her love of musical variety and melding it into a great stylistic gumbo all her own. Married to comedian actor, Harry Shearer, you can imagine her sense of humor as well was a bond for the two. She is very funny :>) on stage and off. A light side and a poignant side makes her a true artist as you will see below with these videos. I love this song, and found her doing her unique version of “In the Summertime".plus it looks so warm there!!! And here is her heart provoking song “Somebody’s Child”. Whichever side you see of Judith you will be enthralled as we have been….happy to have her back.

May 16

THE MAMMALS ARE BACK
The Mammals is a five-piece Americana band from Woodstock, NY.
