Cotton Hollow Rising plays folk, Americana, Celtic & World music, and forays into ragtime, blues and any other style that takes their collective fancy.
The band members are Cece Borjeson & Ruth George (a duo since 1997), Kim Hoffman and Kevin Gallagher, and they’ve played extensively in New England in coffee houses, museums, nature centers, festivals and arts centers. http://www.reverbnation.com/cottonhollowrising
Foot stomping, mind racing, fast flinching music - day in and day out, Poor Old Shine is the Roots- Americana collaboration of Chris Freeman and Will Leet. They travel with an assortment of instruments including guitars, banjos, pump organ, string bass, cello, a swarm of harmonicas, and a yard-sale-scrap-metal drum set. It’s old songs with a new feel, banjos with paint peeled, shoes with holes and treadless soles, and music that is real.
Sarah Blacker is a full-time touring singer/songwriter, and part-time Board Certified Music Therapist for children with special needs. A recent nominee for a New England Music Award for female performer of the year, and singer/songwriter of the year by Limelight Magazine , she also took home the title of Artist of the Year from My Rural Radio based out of Central PA for 2011.
If there is a typical path to becoming a songwriter, Heather Maloney hasn’t followed it. She attended music school but she only started writing tunes after living & working for 3 years in a silent-retreat meditation center in central MA. “I always said that if I didn’t write songs, I’d be covered in tattoos, because every song I write is something I want to remember really badly,” says Maloney.
Join us on the third Sunday of each month for a tasty fare of swinging jazz and great food. Featuring three Berklee College of Music faculty, Diane Wernick (saxophones), Carolyn Wilkins (piano and vocals) and Skip Smith (bass), and also Phil Neighbors of the Harvey Finstein School of Music at Lasell College.
So sit back, relax and enjoy a delicious brunch to the sounds of Bon Voyage.
