Rose Cousins, Tom Terrell opens

Rose Cousins finds insight in solitude and strength in numbers. Supported by a thriving Halifax music scene and welcomed by an equally vibrant Boston community, her new album We Have Made A Spark was made in the spirit of community and collaboration. We Have Made A Spark follows Cousins’ two multi-award-winning albums The Send Off (2009) produced by Luke Doucet and If You Were For Me (2006) produced by CBC in Halifax. Yet another collection of stunning songs by Rose Cousins, her third album braves weighty topics.

Connor Garvey CD Release, Brittany Ann Tranbaugh opens

Connor Garvey's songs are like placing folk-funk guitar & ukulele, soulful vocals, and paradoxical metaphors in an electric juicer- you've never tasted it before, but its intriguing and delectable so you have to keep drinking.  His clever, rhythmic string foundations provide a background for his most prominent instrument, his voice.

Archie Fisher

Although Archie Fisher is a legendary figure in the Scottish folk music world -- everybody's favorite singer and an enormously influential presence both musically and philosophically -- he has remained largely unknown to the greater pop music mainstream. While the mainstream's a poorer place for that, one gets the idea it suits Archie Fisher just fine.

Suzie Brown CD Release

If Suzie Brown had an anthem it’d have to be the twangy “Heartstrings” off her same-name debut. A string-soaked ode to unrequited love, the debut single delicately marked her transition from Harvard-educated cardiologist to singer-songwriter, now musing on matters of the heart. In the four years since making good on her extracurricular activity, she’s been named the Best of Philly (by Philadelphia Magazine) and opened for such kindred spirits as Lyle Lovett.

Jill Sobule

Jill Sobule belongs to a rare breed of artists. Her work is at once deeply personal and socially conscious, seriously funny and derisively tragic. Over five albums and a decade of recording, the Denver-born songwriter/ guitarist/singer has tackled such topics as the death penalty, anorexia, shoplifting, reproduction, the French resistance movement, adolescence, and the Christian right. Did we mention love? Love found, love lost, love wished for and love taken away.
