Andrea Caesar

Sunday, March 2, 2014 - 10:30pm

When she moved to Barrington, Rhode Island, Andrea Caesar was an active, happy, vivacious ten-year-old who loved to play kickball and hang from the monkey bars. A year later, Andrea had trouble catching her breath while running, was plagued by migraines, and battled constant muscle aches. Andrea had changed as a person; she was the kid who was always missing school. Although she did not know it at the time, she had contracted Borrelia burgdorferi, better known as Lyme disease.

Matt Schofield

“Blessed with a voice strong enough to front a band without his guitar, Schofield’s mastery of his instrument imbues every lick ... with a swinging and soulful touch.” – Boston Herald

Ranked as one of the top 10 British blues guitarists of all time by Guitar and Bass, Schofield is regarded as one of the most distinctive and innovative guitarists to come out of the UK. Winner of the British Blues Awards Guitarist of the Year in 2010 and 2011, he is first guitarist inducted into the British Blues Awards Hall of Fame.
