Scheduled Performances for 2024:  
June 20, 2024 (Thursday): Jake Shimabukuro click for details
"The Jimmy Hendrix of the ukelele", Jake Shimabukuro has done for the uke what Bela Fleck has done for the banjo. Whether you need your spirits picked up or you are wanting to celebrate, nothing like a happy ukelele to fit that bill. And Jake has got to be seen to be believed. His show with us last year was completely joyous!

A ukulele virtuoso and composer known for his fast and complex finger work. Made famous by his millions of hits video of George Harrison's "While My Guitar Gently Weeps" , his music combines elements of jazz, blues, funk, rock, bluegrass, classical, folk, and flamenco. Jake comes from that same process of mixing both island and outside influences, both modern and historical. He's combined the qualities of a long line of virtuoso ukulele players with modern rock musicians to create a sound that's uniquely his own but still firmly grounded in Hawaiian tradition. Growing up in Hawaii, Jake's influences include legendary ukulele players like Eddie Kamae, Ohta-San and Peter Moon. He has topped Billboard's World Music Chart numerous times, been declared a musical "hero" by Rolling Stone Magazine, which also stated: "one of the hottest axemen of the past few years doesn't actually play guitar." He has also won accolades from the disparate likes of Eddie Vedder who states: "Jake is taking the instrument to a place that I can't see anybody else catching up with;" My favorite Jake moment? He does a uke version of Queen's Bohemian Rhapsody. So if that doesn't get you to think outta the box, nothin will!! Come see this amazing young ukelele legend. The ukelele is considered the happiest instrument in the world...so don't worry, be happy!! And yeah I think he does that tune too.

June 21, 2024
(Friday): Nick Lowe & Los Straitjackets 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. But in his current ‘second act’ as a silver-haired, tender-hearted but sharp-tongued singer-songwriter, he has no equal.

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.”

These days touring often with the amazing and unique Los Straitjackets who are the leading practitioners of the lost art of the guitar instrumental. Using the music of the Ventures, The Shadows, and with Link Wray and Dick Dale as a jumping off point, the band has taken their unique, high energy brand of original rock & roll around the world. Clad in their trademark Lucha Libre Mexican wrestling masks, the “Jackets” have delivered their trademark guitar licks to 16 albums, thousands of concerts and dozens of films and TV shows including with Nick Lowe

Together Nick & The Straitjackets have toured extensively around and recorded as well. A unexpected but absolutely perfect pairing.

Jeff and I are beyond happy to have them both back…first time together.

June 22, 2024 (Saturday): Paula Cole click for details
Simply one of the best female singers I have ever heard. Songs like "Where have all the Cowboys Gone" and "I Don't Want to Wait" put her on the list of chart busters. But the first time I heard her she was singing back up for Peter Gabriel. When he featured her, it was clear by the hush and then roar of the crowd that she was headed for bigger and better things. Of course her star rose quickly and now we are lucky to be able to present her in our humble hall. Her emotionally charged voice singing her own songs of life, love and a philosophy and intense artistic presence is not to be missed.As creative and powerful as ever…that is Paula Cole.

Need to be reminded?

(Friday): Iris DeMent click for details
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 and 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." 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 on recordings and film.

On her 2023 release Workin' On A World, Iris DeMent faces the modern world — as it is right now — with its climate catastrophe, pandemic illness, and epidemic of violence and social injustice — and not only asks us how we can keep working towards a better world, but implores us to love each other, despite our very different ways of seeing. Her songs are her way of healing our broken inner and outer spaces.

Iris DeMent demonstrates that songs are the healing and the healing arises through song. Well we just love her.

(Friday): Patty Griffin click for details
Patty Griffin is among the most consequential singer-songwriters of her generation, a quintessentially American artist whose wide-ranging canon incisively explores the intimate moments and universal emotions that bind us together. Over the course of two decades, the GRAMMY® Award winner – and seven-time nominee – has crafted nine classic studio albums and two live collections, a remarkable body of work in progress that prompted the New York Times to hail her for "[writing] cameo-carved songs that create complete emotional portraits of specific people...(her) songs have independent lives that continue in your head when the music ends."

Widely regarded among the best pure songwriters of this or any other era, Griffin has had her work performed by a truly epic assortment of her fellow artists, among them Linda Ronstadt, Emmylou Harris, Solomon Burke, The Dixie Chicks, Kelly Clarkson & Jeff Beck, Martina McBride, Miranda Lambert, Melissa Etheridge and Susan Boyle, to name but a few. Her songs have also been showcased in a variety of film, TV, and theatre projects, with her original music and lyrics featured in the 2007 musical, 10 Million Miles, produced Off-Broadway by the Atlantic Theatre Company and directed by Tony Award-winner Michael Mayer. Griffin has also been joined in the studio by a veritable who's-who of contemporary Americana, including Harris, Buddy & Julie Miller, Shawn Colvin, Jim Lauderdale, Raul Malo, Ian McLagen, JD Foster, and many others. As if her own remarkable career weren't enough, Griffin has found time to collaborate with a wide range of like-minded artists, among them Joshua Radin, Todd Snider, Dierks Bentley, Robert Plant, Jack Ingram, Gillian Welch, and David Rawlings.

Having crafted a rich catalog that chronicles love and death, heartache and joy, connection and detachment, Patty Griffin continues to push her art forward, as always imbuing every effort with compassion and craft, uncanny perception, and ever-increasing ingenuity.

Texas residing, but A Maine native, we are happy to call her our own and have her back...we love you Patty!

July 20, 2024
(Saturday): The Rough and Tumble click for details
with special guest Alice Wallace
We just love this band. I always say, I don't know why they are not famous…yet! The Rough & Tumble are a folk/Americana duo, consisting of Mallory Graham & Scott Tyler. Forming in 2011, they spent 8 years full time in a 16ft camper with two big dogs and one hamster. playing roughly 150 shows a year. At home at festivals listening rooms and house concerts across the country, their commanding stage presence, engaging performances and affecting songwriting won them official showcases at Folk Alliance International, NERFA, SERFA and the Independent Music Awards Americana Song of the Year for their song “The Hardest Part. In 2023 they received recognition for their work in New England as recipients of Club Passim's Iguana Music Fund. 2021’s We're Only Family If You Say So, an album about what it means to be family and then to lose it, had singles debuting on American Songwriter and The Bluegrass Situation and has been embraced by fans for its stark honesty, unique storytelling and well-crafted melodies. The band now resides in New Hampshire and their new album, Only This Far, was released in May 2023 that has been described as "quality songs, well written, well played, well sung and arranged, and a pleasure from start to end. Love this video and love them!!

July 26, 2024 (Friday): Rhiannon Giddens click for details
This Show Helps Support our Local Food Pantry ...A portion of every ticket goes to the Local Food Pantry And in addition, SMAC will donate 10% of our dinner biz that night to our friends at the Food Pantry in Brownfield. No better gift than having Rhiannon and having our food pantry supported too! A big Win Win.

About Rhiannon
Rhiannon has been coming to SMAC since her days with the Carolina Chocolate Drops. Since then her fame is risen ten fold and frankly I can't believe she still comes to our humble hall and by that we are humbled. Rhiannon Giddens has made a singular, iconic career out of stretching her brand of folk music, with its miles-deep historical roots and contemporary sensibilities, into just about every field imaginable. A two-time GRAMMY Award-winning singer and instrumentalist, MacArthur “Genius” grant recipient, and composer of opera, ballet, and film, Giddens has centered her work around the mission of lifting up people whose contributions to American musical history have previously been overlooked or erased, and advocating for a more accurate understanding of the country’s musical origins through art.

Oh and did we mention she was the 2023 Pulitzer Prize Winner in Music along with Michael Abels for “Omar" an opera drawing inspiration from the 1831 autobiography of Omar ibn Said, beginning long before the West African scholar was forced to board a ship bound for Charleston, South Carolina — the site of his initial enslavement.

As Pitchfork once said, “few artists are so fearless and so ravenous in their exploration”—a journey that has led to NPR naming her one of its 25 Most Influential Women Musicians of the 21st Century and to American Songwriter calling her “one of the most important musical minds currently walking the planet.” There is a lot here to unpack about Rhiannon when it comes to talent, creativity and musical stewardship..but we would like to add what a down to earth and sweet gal she has always been to us. Here with her band, we are honored.

This night will also help support our local Food Pantry that seems so hard hit these last few years. Once a year we choose a show to support the Food pantry and we are super happy to partner with Rhiannon to do so.

* Because of the fund raising nature of this show we ask no membership passes, gift certificates or credits be applicable for this show.

(Saturday): Bill Kirchen Band click for details
with special guest guitarist Duke Levine
Upon tallying how many decades he’s worked as a professional guitar slinger, Telecaster master Bill Kirchen quips, “Well, they don't make 50 years like they used to.” They don’t often make careers like his, either. You hard core Commander Cody fans will know him as the the guy who made Hot Rod Lincoln famous. Kirchen is reported to be one of the musicians that pioneered the Americana radio format and is a founding father of the "twangcore movement" which includes Dave Alvin, Wilco and Big Sandy & His Fly-Rite Boys. Kirchen's signature sound has been dubbed "dieselbilly" and incorporates elements of country music, blues, rockabilly, Western swing and boogie-woogie, laced with themes of American truck driving music. These days his songwriting could not be more vital. And I should put a YouTube here with one of his more recent songs from his so latest and greatest. But geez, I gotta remind you of who this amazing tall drink of water is. So here he is, earnin' his paycheck above and beyond.

Flying alongside some of the planet’s coolest cats — including the Jesus of Cool, Nick Lowe, and Elvis Costello, Bill has been everywhere. We are honored to be one of those “wheres” and be able to call him a dear friend. Speaking of friends, Bill says, "One of my favorite people and players on the planet, Duke has temporarily escaped his handlers with Bonnie Raitt and Peter Wolf, and will join us at SMAC .

 
July 28, 2024 (Sunday): Lori McKenna click for details
Singer/songwriter Lori McKenna has been nominated and won a Grammy, along with scores of country music awards for her songwriting. Penning hits for the likes of country stars like Faith Hill, Tim McGraw, Little Big Town and more has made her one of the industry’s most in-demand songwriters. All have recorded her songs to great acclaim, but nobody sings Lori McKenna's songs better than Lori McKenna! Around here she is family and her sweet voice is like nothing else. It's always a treat to have her here!

(Saturday): Keb' Mo' click for details
Wow…we are so lucky…we just love him!!! He was hailed by NPR as the modern ambassador for the blues. Since the release of his self-titled debut in 1994, blues guitarist Keb' Mo' (born Kevin Moore) has been one of the most successful musicians in the genre. Earning multiple Grammys and nominations, guitarist/vocalist Keb' Mo' draws heavily on the old-fashioned country blues style of Robert Johnson, while keeping his sound contemporary with touches of soul and folksy storytelling. A skilled frontman as well as an accomplished sideman, he writes much of his own material and has applied his acoustic, electric, and slide guitar skills to jazz- and rock-oriented bands. We have had him here a number of times now, and from where we stand every show is better than the last. Here with his killer band ... don't miss it.

August 7, 2024

August 8, 2024
(Thursday): Comedian Bob Marley click for details
I don't know any other person who worked harder to keep us entertained during 2020 and beyond than comedian Bob Marley. His daily videos were a comic relief from the world's challenges, and there have been many. Bob has a gift and a way of finding the hilarity in the obvious and the seemingly common occurrences in our sometimes mundane lives. In fact, he would make fun of me for saying all this!!. I can just hear him mocking me now!

On a personal note, Bob kept my staff from going crazy! We appreciate him for being one of the artists that was willing to do shows in whatever way he could to make venues and people laugh..whether it was a small capacity show or a drive in…he did it all. Nothing can stop the Bob Marley train and we love him for that. And yes, I said artist!!

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. And geesh don't we all need to laugh right now. Always a quick sell out!

August 9, 2024 (Friday): An Evening with Maine Authors click for details

(Saturday): Ward Hayden and the Outliers click for details
This band has two sides to them...…one is rockin' and one is just pure roots. If Chris Isaac, Buddy Holly and Buck Owens started a band, it might sound like these guys! 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! An eclectic blend of musical styles that's reminiscent of Johnny Cash one minute, CCR the next, the all-male quintet mixes catchy melodies with cowboy vocals and creative percussion, hurling grit (sometimes grits) and heart into every tune.

August 14, 2024
(Wednesday): Brothers Comatose click for details
Well…these guys are described as high-energy,foot-stompin, folk-rock string band…but i think what I like about them is they seem more like a rough around the edges seventies band with a side of bluegrass and country rock and roll. But what do i know!!? I know I like’em!

Speaking of seventies ... check out this video of them doing a little Bill Withers.

The five-piece West Coast string band is anything but a traditional acoustic outfit with their fierce musicianship and rowdy, rock concert-like shows. The Brothers Comatose is comprised of brothers Ben Morrison (guitar, vocals) and Alex Morrison (banjo, vocals), Steve Height (bass), Philip Brezina (violin), and Greg Fleischut (mandolin, vocals). When they’re not headlining The Fillmore for a sold-out show or appearing at Hardly Strictly Bluegrass Festival, the band is out on the road performing across America, Canada, Australia, and hosting their very own music festival, Comatopia, in the Sierra foothills. Its hard to find a video that they don't have a who’s who of special guests….and that otta tell ya somethin! First time here…don't miss’em.

August 16, 2024 (Friday): Tom Rush click for details
Since Tom Rush's 1962 debut as an unknown folk-blues musician on the Boston/Cambridge music scene, he has established himself as a consummate performer and singer-songwriter. A few years back, a sold out celebration of his five-decade career anniversary at Boston Symphony Hall proves his fan loyalty and endurance. When you think of the importance of the folk scene in the 60's you should think of Tom. These days he is just as vital and entertaining. We welcome him back with a big hug!

August 22, 2024
(Thursday): Dave Alvin & Jimmie Dale Gilmore click for details
with the Guilty Ones
On Stage Together! Oh We couldn't be more excited!!!!!!!
 

Roots music legends, Dave Alvin and Jimmie Dale Gilmore, have been friends for 30 years. When Grammy winner Dave Alvin and Grammy nominee Jimmie Dale Gilmore made the album Downey To Lubbock together in 2018, they wrote the title track as a sort of mission statement. “I know someday this old highway’s gonna come to an end,” Alvin sings near the song’s conclusion. Gilmore answers: “But I know when it does you’re going to be my friend.”
 
 

Six years later, they’re serving notice that the old highway hasn’t ended yet. “We’re still standing, no matter what you might hear,” they sing on “We’re Still Here,” the final track to their new album Texicali. Due out on Yep Roc Records, Texicali continues to bridge the distance between the two troubadours’ respective home bases of California (Alvin) and Texas (Gilmore).

The album’s geographic theme reflects Alvin’s repeated journeys to record in Central Texas with Gilmore and the Austin-based backing band that has toured with the duo for the past few years. The 11 songs on Texicali also connect the duo’s shared fondness for a broad range of American music forms. On their own, both have been prominent artists for decades. A philosophical songwriter with a captivating, almost mystical voice, Gilmore co-founded influential Lubbock group the Flatlanders in the early 1970s. Alvin first drew attention as a firebrand guitarist and budding young songwriter with Los Angeles roots-rockers the Blasters in the early 1980s. Their journey continues!

So happy to have this show!

August 23, 2024
(Friday): Enter the Haggis click for details
For over two decades, Toronto’s Enter The Haggis has combined bagpipes and fiddles with a rock rhythm section to create a distinctively eclectic sound, praised by The Boston Globe, The Washington Post, and Canada’s Globe and Mail. Their songs offer singalong melodies and deep, meaningful lyrics which tell the stories of everyday hard working people, often faced with seemingly insurmountable challenges. Signature songs like “One Last Drink”, “Gasoline”, “Down With The Ship” and “Lancaster Gate” have been streamed millions of times, have appeared in Hollywood movies, and have been performed and recorded by artists around the world.

Enter The Haggis' commitment to putting on a great show every single night has made them a favorite at festivals and performing arts centers across the US and Canada. As a result, ETH shows have become an annual tradition on some of the most prestigious stages on the continent. The band has also brought hundreds of fans on eight tours of Ireland and two of Scotland, forging deeper friendships with their supporters while exploring ancient landmarks and natural wonders across each country. Glad to have them back!

August 24, 2024
(Saturday): Sam Bush click for details
Grammy Award winning multi-instrumentalist Sam Bush doesn't seem old enough to be a musical legend, but that is just what he is. Considered the originator of the Newgrass style, he is "the" mandolin player of our generation. Bush has helped to expand the horizons of bluegrass music, fusing it with jazz, rock, blues, funk and other styles. He's the co-founder of the genre-bending New Grass Revival and an in-demand musician who has played with everyone from Emmylou Harris and Bela Fleck to Charlie Haden, Lyle Lovett and Garth Brooks. And though Bush is best known for jaw-dropping skills on the mandolin, he is also a three time national junior fiddle champion and Grammy award winning vocalist. We are honored to be a stop on Sam’s tour. As always with a killah band of A list of players. Don’t miss’em!

August 30, 2024
(Friday): Brandy Clark click for details
A Grammy and CMA Award-winner, Brandy Clark is one of her generation's most esteemed songwriters and musicians. In the midst of yet another landmark year, Clark won Best Americana Performance at this year's 66th Grammy Awards for her song "Dear Insecurity," featuring 11x Grammy-winner Brandi Carlile — Clark's first Grammy win. The song is from Clark's self-titled album, which was produced by Carlile and features her most personal songwriting to date. Released to overwhelming critical acclaim, Brandy Clark landed on several "Best of 2023" lists including NPR Music, Billboard, Rolling Stone, Variety, Los Angeles Times and Forbes, who calls the album "an Americana Masterpiece." Additionally, Variety praises, "further clarifies that she's one of America's treasures" and Billboard declares, "Clark continues to convey her inexorable talents as both a song-crafter and vocal interpreter."

In addition to her work as a solo artist, Clark has written songs such as "A Beautiful Noise," the Grammy-nominated duet performed by Brandi Carlile and Alicia Keys, and Kacey Musgraves' "Follow Your Arrow." She also composed the music and lyrics for the hit musical comedy, Shucked, alongside her longtime collaborator, Shane McAnally. With the show, Clark won Outstanding Music at the 67th Drama Desk Awards and was nominated for Best Original Score at the 76th Tony Awards, with Shucked receiving nine Tony nominations overall last year.

September 7, 2024 (Saturday): Tuba Skinny click for details
Back by popular demand! One of our fav sell out shows of last year.
Right off the streets of New Orleans, Tuba Skinny is dedicated to bringing the best in traditional early jazz swing to audiences around the world. For over a decade Tuba Skinny has grown steadily in popularity, releasing twelve albums and touring all over the world. They’ve attracted a wide variety of fans- young and old, neophytes and niche-enthusiasts- with the strength of their musicianship and the scope of their jazz and American roots music catalog. While they’ve become known as world-class interpreters of traditional jazz, over the years they’ve branched out into jug band music, spirituals, country blues, string band music, ragtime, and New Orleans R&B. Their approach is a true reflection of Americana, encompassing the full genealogy of popular American music from an early 20th century perspective.

"Musically, Tuba Skinny mines a rich seam of traditional jazz and blues from the '20s and '30s. And, while it's evident the band treasures the sense of history evoked by these vintage tunes, the players' natural exuberance makes the music feel irresistibly alive.” - Melbourne Music Festival

“If jazz is the bread, then the blues is the butter for Tuba Skinny.” - Offbeat Magazine

September 13, 2024
(Friday): Harry Manx STAFF PICK click for details
Like the song says....."Im just wild about Harry!!"..and you will be too!

It takes begging and pleading to get Harry to come to the States 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!

September 14, 2024
(Saturday): Darin & Brooke Aldridge click for details
Ya know when I say, you gotta see this act? Well ya gotta and bettah! I have wanted to get this husband and wife country bluegrass act for awhile. They are so pure. Watch this video of a song they wrote about the Ryman “Grand Ole Circle” …where they of course have graced.

A Celebration of Heather's New Album, Back To The Light
SMAC is honored to bring this special show to celebrate the release of Heather's forthcoming album, Back To The Light, her most vibrant release yet. The first single, 'Up Here In The Mountains', will be released June 21. Back To The Light was recorded at Acadia Recording Company in Portland, ME with her trio mates Shawn Nadeau on bass and drummer Craig Bryan. This new album of Heather's originals pulsates throughout with the grooves of New Orleans, the beauty of Appalachia, and Sunday-go-to-meeting celebration. 'Everybody's tryin' to be free of the ghosts that haunt them at night,' she sings in the title track, and what better way to nourish and embolden oneself in the darkness than with the medicine of song? We agree…..don't miss it!

(Saturday): Gibson Brothers click for details
There’s a reason why Ricky Skaggs pulled Eric and Leigh Gibson off the stage at the Ryman two decades ago and offered to produce their debut record.The same thing that led David Ferguson and Grammy Award winning producer and Black Keys front man Dan Auerbach to co-write and produce their 14th album “Mockingbird” (2018) and release it on his own label Easy Eye Sound alongside cultural icons such as Hank Williams Jr. and Dr. John:the Gibson Brothers are the real deal.They can pick.They can sing.And they can write a damn good country song. They’ve won about every bluegrass award you can name and released albums on almost every premier Americana label you can think of including Sugar Hill and Rounder, and, if that’s not enough, their songs have been recorded by bluegrass legends no less than Del McCoury. It’s a resume almost anybody in country music would be proud to have. But despite all of this, the Gibson Brothers are not yet household names. Their latest album, “Darkest Hour,” produced by dobro master Jerry Douglas might just change that.

I tell you what they are household names in our house!!
Oh, I love these these bluegrass greats!!! 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. They were featured on Prairie Home Companion last year and of course many of you have seen them here at Christmas....they always bring the house down. They have a sound that is so sincere. It's 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....Come highly SMAC recommended.

October 5, 2024 (Saturday): Darrell Scott click for details
Hey all you song writer lovers … this guy in my opinion is 100% exactly what singer songwriter should be. Scott has collaborated with Steve Earle, Sam Bush, Emmylou Harris, John Cowan, Verlon Thompson, Guy Clark, Tim O'Brien, Kate Rusby, Jimmie Dale Gilmore, Mary Gauthier, Dan Tyminski, and Brad Paisely recorded his song "You'll Never Leave Harlan Alive" on the finale of Justified ( a favorte SMAC show by the way!) Here is his version of this great song with some talented friends.

Gaining new fame by touring with Robert Plant and the Zac Brown Band (2 years with each), and producing albums for Malcolm Holcomb and Guy Clark and being named "songwriter of the year" for both ASCAP and NSAI, Darrel Scott has been one buys song writer. A multi-instrumentalist and singer-songwriter who mines and cultivates the everyday moment, taking the rote, menial, mundane, and allowing it to be surreal, ever poignant, and candidly honest, lilting, blooming, and resonating. The words he fosters allow us to make sense of the world, what is at stake here, and our place in it. And ultimately, Darrell knows the sole truth of life is that love is all that matters, that we don't always get it right, but that's the instinctive and requisite circuitous allure of things, why we forever chase it, and why it is held sacred.

These days find him roaming his Tennessee wilderness acreage hiking along the small river, creating delicious meals with food raised on his property and playing music. He often leads songwriting workshops to help people tell their own truths with their stories, and is as busy as always writing, producing, performing, and just plain fully immersing himself in life. For this night he will immerse himself up a country road. Happy to have him back.

(Friday): Maia Sharp & Willy Porter click for details
What a GREAT DOUBLE BILL ... TWO GREAT SONGWRITERS
Maia Sharp
Maia has had her songs recorded by Bonnie Raitt, The Chicks, Trisha Yearwood, Keb’ Mo’, Cher, Edwin McCain, David Wilcox, Art Garfunkel, Lizz Wright, Paul Carrack, Lisa Loeb, Terri Clark, and many more. And through it all, Maia has continued to record her own albums including: nine solo releases, one collaborative project with Art Garfunkel and Buddy Mondlock, and her duo project- Roscoe & Etta (with writing/production partner Anna Schulze). Each release has been embraced by press and radio and has led to extensive touring and appearances on Mountain Stage, Acoustic Cafe, World Cafe, NPR’s “All Things Considered,” CBS Early Morning, and the Today Show to name a few.

Bonnie Raitt says, "Maia is making some of the most innovative and soulful music around with songs that are head and shoulders above the rest. She has become one of my favorite artists….a brilliant album, start to finish.”

Willy Porter
Some folks are lucky to find what they love to do at an early age and quietly settle in for the long haul expanding and developing their work over the arc of a lifetime. Willy Porter is one of those artists. He has followed his own path to explore the sacred language that music truly is. 30 years after his solo recording debut, he continues to reach further into his guitar & pen while stretching the form of what his own music can be. His thrust to critical acclaim began in 1994 with Dog Eared Dream and continues with his latest The Ravine. Don’t miss this night of great songwriting

(Thursday): Comedian Bob Marley click for details
I don't know any other person who worked harder to keep us entertained during 2020 and beyond than comedian Bob Marley. His daily videos were a comic relief from the world's challenges, and there have been many. Bob has a gift and a way of finding the hilarity in the obvious and the seemingly common occurrences in our sometimes mundane lives. In fact, he would make fun of me for saying all this!!. I can just hear him mocking me now!

On a personal note, Bob kept my staff from going crazy! We appreciate him for being one of the artists that was willing to do shows in whatever way he could to make venues and people laugh..whether it was a small capacity show or a drive in…he did it all. Nothing can stop the Bob Marley train and we love him for that. And yes, I said artist!!

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. And geesh don't we all need to laugh right now. Always a quick sell out!
October 18, 2024 (Friday): Rickie Lee Jones click for details
Rickie Lee Jones is an American musician, storyteller and two-time Grammy winner who has been inspiring pop culture for decades, beginning with her star-making self-titled debut, followed by the seminal Pirates. Named the “premiere song-stylist and songwriter of her generation” by The New Yorker, and “The Duchess of Coolsville” by Time magazine, Jones released her Grammy-nominated album Pieces of Treasure in 2023, a reunion with Russ Titelman, who produced her first two records. Jones’ celebrated memoir Last Chance Texaco was named Book of the Year by MOJO and a Best Book of the Year at Pitchfork and NPR. The Independent writes, “There has always been something defiant about Rickie Lee Jones . . . a voice from a dream, elusive yet familiar, transcendent, a messenger from another place.”

November 1, 2024 (Friday): Bruce Cockburn click for details
Dubbed "The Canadian Bob Dylan," Bruce Cockburn has 40 albums and nearly 400 songs to his name in over 50 years of music-making. He embraces folk, jazz, rock, and world as he sings heartfelt stories of personal exploration, politics, and spirituality. A twelve-time Juno Award winner, Bruce is one of Canada’s most revered, treasured, and innovative artists. It’s been too long since we have had him back. So happy he will grace our stage.

(Saturday): Erica Brown and the Bluegrass Connection details
We love this band…the pride of Maine...they have been through thick an thin with us these last few years and we are so happy to have them back on our stage!!!

Their latest album, Blue Pine Moon, and Erica and her five piece band feature some of the finest musicians in New England. The band features award winning fiddler and singer Erica Brown, Matt Shipman on mandolin, Lincoln Meyers on guitar, Eli Gilbert on banjo and Kris Day on bass. They are energetic, fun and diverse as they incorporate music from the traditional Bluegrass, Folk and Country repertoire as well as French Canadian fiddle music and original songs. It will be a super night of music as always from these special SMAC friends.

(Saturday): Ellis Paul click for details
Ellis is a true Renaissance man. An astute storyteller, poetic and literate, with a stellar stage presence…Ellis Paul is one of those gifted singer/songwriters. Though some may refer to him as a folk singer, he is more, for lack of a better word, a singular storyteller, a musician whose words reach out from inside and yet also express the feelings, thoughts and sensibilities that most people can relate to in one way or another, regardless of age or upbringing. Besides being a fierce troubadour, he can add movie soundtracks, children’s books, artwork and more to his resume. Don’t miss’em :>)

November 15, 2024 (Friday): Susan Werner click for details
What can we say about Susan, but when I think of her I think of thoroughly talented, smart and entertaining. She would hate me for saying this, but I think she is the Mary Poppins of us singer songwriters. Her songwriting is poignant and her message is heartfelt…but always getting her point across with a little sugar on top. Couldn't we all have a little of that lately.

But back to her impressive career... Over the course of her twenty-five year touring career, Susan Werner has built a reputation as one of the country’s most compelling live performers. With formidable chops on guitar (she began playing at age 5) and piano (she was a guest on Marian McPartland’s Piano Jazz) along with a graduate degree in voice performance, her shows are a one-woman master class in musicianship. Her songs are noted for their poetry and sharp wit, and also for their astonishing stylistic range. She’s written songs in the style of Gershwin and Cole Porter (I Can’t Be New, 2004), gospel music (The Gospel Truth, 2007), traditional Cuban “son” (An American In Havana, 2016), and New Orleans junk piano (NOLA, 2019). In 2014 she composed the music and lyrics to the musical theater score Bull Durham, The Musical (MGM) and her latest recording of original songs, The Birds of Florida, took flight.

December 21, 2024 (Saturday): Adam Ezra Group click for details
If you haven’t connected with Adam Ezra Group yet, this underground, Americana songwriter and his bandmates seem to have popped out of nowhere. They’ve established a connection with their fans unlike any other, and are suddenly selling out theaters throughout the Northeast. This folk musician, activist began playing shows over 20 years ago. When music venues wouldn’t hire him, he played bars, bookstores, fields, and parking lots, often raising money for causes he cared about; a practice that grew into his nonprofit organization Rally Sound, empowering communities through music. These winners of the 2023 New England Music Award’s “Americana Act of the Year”, inspired John Oates to invite Adam to begin a songwriting friendship that would lead to John co-writing and producing their upcoming release “Hold Each Other Now”. How did this happen? Adam will tell you: "One person at a time, over many years and thousands of shows, decided to turn their heads to listen."

These days you’ll find Adam and his bandmates, Corinna Smith (Fiddle), Poche Ponce (Bass), and Alex Martin (Percussion), constantly out on the road. If you look at their tour schedule now, you can buy tickets to see them at festivals, rock venues, and theaters around the country, but you will also see their tour continuously peppered with activism and grassroots events; a testament to an artist who will never forget where he came from, and whose mission is about much more than music.

Scheduled Performances for 2025:  
February 8, 2025 (Friday): Cécilia click for details
Erin Leahy, Timi Turmel, and Louis Schryer ... Canada's finest
We are very excited about this show..Erin was here with her brother Donnell Leahy and Natalie MacMaster, (Canadina royalty) a while back and she was outstanding, as are Timi and Louis. Traditional music that causes a wonderful stir and fills to overflowing every venue – that is Cécilia! Widely recognized as three of Canada's finest musicians, it is a pleasure to see how much enjoyment Timi Turmel, Erin Leahy, and Louis Schryer find in playing together. While honoring their heritage as Cécilia, their music making has an undeniably fresh and high-spirited sound.

They bring the best of many musical worlds together in their explorations of traditional, Celtic and Quebecois music. Every one of their pieces is skillfully arranged and highlighted with influences from contemporary, classical, jazz and swing styles. Cécilia's recent debut album Accent is an impressive offering full of vibrant rhythms and melodies, all resonating with a unique warmth and richness of expression.

Each performance by Cécilia is a call to come out and share – not only in the joy of three dedicated musicians making music together but also in creating with Timi, Erin, and Louis a unique and memorable musical experience. You'll find yourself with a smile that lasts long after the final notes of Cécilia's accordion, piano, and violin have melted away.

Featuring John Gorka, Patty Larkin, Lucy Kaplansky, and Cliff Eberhardt
Presenting the Reunion Tour of “On A Winter’s Night” from veteran singer-songwriters that remain among the brightest stars of the singer/songwriter movement for the past three decades. In 1994 musicians gathered together, to showcase music of the Winter Season on the now-classic On A Winter’s Night CD, followed by several years of touring collaborations. As soloists, these artists have released dozens of recordings and toured steadily through the decades, with fond memories of their touring days together. The winter season is again celebrated by these unique and popular performers, back together by popular demand. AND FOR VALENTINE'S DAY!!!
Grab someone you love and come on out for a Winter’s Eve of voice and song.

March 13, 2025 (Thursday): Natalie MacMaster & Donnell Leahy details
The entertainment world is filled with extraordinary stories. But few match the beguiling true-life tale of Natalie MacMaster and Donnell Leahy, Canada’s reigning couple of Celtic music, whose dazzling career achievements underpin an incomparable off-stage life. Indeed, when two of the planet’s very best fiddle players married in 2002, the proverbial mantelpiece was instantly crammed with JUNO and East Coast Music Awards. Though MacMaster and Leahy followed different trajectories – she a Cape Breton native who could step-dance before she could walk; he the oldest brother of acclaimed family group Leahy – both had assuredly crested the traditional music peak. Their first recorded collaboration, 2015’s Bob Ezrin-produced album One, which was followed by 2016’s A Celtic Family Christmas (and which cemented the couple’s status as powerhouses on the seasonal circuit) confirmed MacMaster and Leahy are as dynamic working together as they were working apart. Performing thousands of shows and collaborating with a multitude of world renowned artists Natalie’s and Donnell’s family and work-life have been intertwined. Their values are equally as important in their life as music. They believe incorporating family into the performances and their music is the perfect way to maintain a healthy work-life balance. MacMaster and Leahy now have five beautiful children, and Natalie and Donnell devotion to them is job number one. On a personal note, I cannot describe the elation and emotion when this family performs together...love is not a big enough word. We LOVE them ... comes highly SMAC recommended.

March 29, 2025 (Saturday): Altan click for details
Wow, it’s been too long since we have seen these dear musical friends. With a career in Irish music for 35 years, Altan has achieved legendary status in a genre that has been equally shaped by the band's influence and genius. Audiences from Ireland to Japan to Australia to Europe have embraced their heartwarming, dynamic live performances and their exquisitely produced, award-winning recordings. Over a dozen releases to date, ranging from the most touching old Irish songs to hard-hitting reels and jigs. Chicago Weekly, said, "Thought by many to be the finest traditional Irish combo working today, Altan seamlessly blend dazzling instrumental prowess and the gorgeously delicate vocals of Mairead Ni Mhaonaigh" I would whole heartedly agree. They have not been here for many years and we have missed them. The real deal of Irish bands...don't miss their welcome return.

April 12, 2025 (Saturday): Lonesome Ace Stringband click for details
Ya know we get more than our share of string band pitched to us these days. But with all the rebooting and reinventions of bluegrass and old timey music, every once in while something more pure comes through and I was so glad we hosted this band. EVERYONE loved them!

Case in point from from Canada , the Lonesome Ace Stringband is an old-time band with bluegrass chops that play some righteous folk and country music. There's a depth of groove and sense of space not often heard in bluegrass today, a level of instrumental interplay and vocal blend uncommon in old-time, and an on-stage rapport that transcends all of this. Click to listen to a sweet ballad on YouTube. But no worries they can S&@t kick it with the rest of them.
