    Danny Barnes + Twisted Pine


    Part Southern gentleman, part humble artist, Barnes is being more than a bit self-effacing with this statement. Widely regarded as one of the most innovative and genre-bending artists of his craft, Barnes' musical interests are both varied and adventurous, and he incorporates that versatility into a progressive approach to an instrument that is musically polarizing and steeped in tradition. Although he demonstrates an appreciation for the history of the bluegrass, country, and folk music from which the banjo's reputation was born, his inventive take is what truly separates him from his contemporaries…using the banjo as his ‘weapon of choice’ to play non-traditional music like rock, fusion, and jazz with electronic percussion and loop elements.

As a self taught guitarist and singer, she enjoys blending classic rock, lyric-y folk, and vintage western. Since she first stepped into the bar room at the age of fourteen to perform with the likes of the old fishermen and shipyard workers, Lauren has had a keen eye for observation--which she effortlessly weaves into her songwriting. Lauren claims, “I’ve got the brains of a heartsick twenty-something sailor, and the eyes of a two-hundred-year old admiral”.

    When most people think of defiant music, they think of punk rock or outlaw country. But defying genres while transcending eras and resisting clichés is hard to pin down when it comes to artistry—unless you’re talking about Miss Tess, who does all of that and more on her new release, The Moon Is an Ashtray (released Feb 7).

    Maine Voices Live with Lois Lowry


    Please Note: This is a rental event and One Longfellow Square is not selling tickets for it. Purchase tickets here. Lois Lowry’s debut novel, “A Summer to Die,” and the following, “Anastasia Krupnik,” established her as a young-adult author who could relate to both the monumental and everyday struggles of youth. She twice has received the Newbery Medal, given each year for the most distinguished piece of fiction published for young people. “Number the Stars,” set in Copenhagen during World War II, remains one of the best-selling children's books of all time, and “The Giver,” a dystopian science-fiction story, is a staple of middle-school reading lists. In April 2020, she will release “On the Horizon,” her 46th book and her first written in verse. Drawn from her childhood memories in Japan and Hawaii, along with research, it tells the story of soldiers and civilians whose lives were lost or uprooted by the bombings of Pearl Harbor and Hiroshima. Lowry also has worked as a photojournalist, and her portrait of a Danish girl is on the cover of many editions of “Number the Stars.” A mother and grandmother, she has lived all over the world but now divides her time between Maine and Florida. Lowry will be interviewed by Portland Press Herald reporter Ray Routhier. 6:30pm doors – 7pm show | $20 public – $10 Press Herald Subscriber Purchase Tickets HERE

The title of Griffin House’s upcoming release,”Rising Star,” references the first track on the album, which tells the story of a character who moves to Music City, like so many do, with a guitar and a dream.  Although not intended to be auto-biographical, the listener gets the sense that this comical and fictitious tale could hardly have been woven by someone without a similar life experience to the protagonist in “Rising Star.”

    Ellis Paul, Vance Gilbert, Seth Glier


    Some artists document their lives through their music. Others chronicle their times. It’s a rare artist who can do both, telling their own story through songs that also encapsulate the essence of people and places who have helped define their era overall. Woody Guthrie comes to mind, and so does Bob Dylan. Bruce Springsteen certainly as well. Yet few others, for whatever genius they may possess, can relate their own history to the history experienced by those who find that common bond, be it in a coming of age, living through the same realities or sharing similar experiences.
