    Blues Prophets

    "We'll let the good times roll when the Blues Prophets return for one great night at One Longfellow Square! Lots of us have followed the Prophets for a long time, from the Loft in Portland with James Cotton, to the Showring in Brewer with Muddy Waters, to New Years Eve at the Redbarn in Monroe. But if you're new to blues, these are the guys you want to hear. They play straight-up Chicago blues and they play it better than just about anyone. We might take out extra insurance 'cause they might rock the roof right off the room! It's the return of Maine's own Blues Prophets, don't miss them!" -Al Leighton, Member of the Board

    Buck Meek (of Big Thief) w/ Alena Spanger (of Tiny Hazard)

    Buck Meek’s songs are for the lost dogs of honest mechanics, good guys and girls born into a life of crime, runaways, snow spirits, the ghosts of Central Park, unsung diving-board stars, the affection shared through gambling, and so on. Bred in Texas, more bread in New York City, Meek spins outlaw ballads and quotidian fairy tales into a yarn, with Adam Brisbin on guitar (Jolie Holland, Sam Evian, Katie Von Schleicher), Mt. Davidson on bass (Twain, The Low Anthem, Spirit Family Reunion), and Austin Vaughn on drums (Here We Go Magic, Luke Temple, Sam Evian).

Armed with his signature molten licks, melodic riffs and rousing, intense solos, Ellis, as his legions of fans will attest, is among the blues world’s best-loved, hardest working and most well-travelled statesmen. He has performed in all 50 United States as well as in Canada, Western and Eastern Europe, Australia and South America, earning legions of fans with his guitar virtuosity, passionate vocals and memorable original songs. Ellis is also revered as a guitarist’s guitarist, with famous friends including Derek Trucks, Warren Haynes, Oliver Wood, Jonny Lang and members of Widespread Panic calling on him to sit in and jam. “A musician never got famous staying home,” he says.

    Amy Helm w/ Jonah Tolchin


    Amy Helm sought what she calls a “circular sound” for her new album. It’s a well-rounded one, one marked by streaks of Americana, country, blues, and gospel, and the kinds of four-part harmonies that can burst open a melody and close the loop of an octave. And sentimentally, it’s a sound that represents the feeling of community.
