    GoldenOak Album Release w/ Appleseed Collective

    From the foothills of Western Maine comes GoldenOak, a folk group whose genre-blending sound has them steadily emerging as a musical force in New England. Conceived in the winter of 2013, their woodsy, modern folk sound weaves together rich four-part harmonies and piercing melodic lines over a unique blend of cello, guitar, trumpet, and cajón. Shifting effortlessly from energetic swing to dreamy ballad, they’re as comforting as a campfire and as heart-shaken as a summer squall.

    Coco Montoya

    Please note that this is a standing room show. There will be limited seating available in the balcony. The old Willie Dixon adage, “blues is truth,” perfectly describes the searing, contemporary blues-rock of world-renowned guitarist and vocalist Coco Montoya. Taught by the “Master of the Telecaster,” Albert Collins, but with a hard-edged sound and style all his own, Montoya mixes his forceful, melodic guitar playing and passionate vocals with memorable songs, delivering the blues’ hardest truths. He earned his status as a master guitarist and soul-powered vocalist through years of paying his dues as a sideman with Collins (first as a drummer) and then with John Mayall’s Bluesbreakers, before launching his solo career in 1993.

    S. Mason Gurley presents: A Bridge Across Forever: In Conversation with Stanley

    A Bridge Across Forever: In Conversation with Stanley concerns themes of love, loss and the nature of consciousness in a surprising and unconventional jazz suite by weaving instrumental and vocal melodies with spoken word elements, played via tape cassette, of a sage (considered by some to be a white shaman) recorded a decade ago by the composer.  The apostolic ideas presented are conveyed with wit and abundance, but most importantly, a starkly unvetted authority. Recoded live; two takes.

    Don’t Be Denied: A Tribute to Neil Young’s “Ditch Trilogy”

    A portion of the proceeds will go to Chooper's Foundation and Grace Street Services for support services and awareness for opioid addiction. Neil Young said of the overwhelming success of the single “Heart of Gold” from 1972’s Harvest: “This song put me in the middle of the road. Traveling there soon became a bore, so I headed for the ditch. A rougher ride but I saw more interesting people there.” The music and albums that followed Harvest established Neil as a willfully erratic artist not interested in following a safer formula of past success but rather focused on the purity of personal expression and the raw power of music.
