    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

    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.

    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: 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.

    Laura Cortese & The Dance Cards Album Release Show


    Laura Cortese and the Dance Cards have a vision for their band's sound: bold and elegant, schooled in the lyrical rituals of folk music and backed by grooves that alternately inspire Cajun two-stepping and rock-n-roll hip swagger. Cellist Valerie Thompson (cello/vox), fiddler Jenna Moynihan (fiddle/vox), and bassist Natalie Bohrn pair their sophisticated string arrangements and rich vocal harmonies to band leader Laura Cortese's poignant and powerful singing. For their forthcoming album, the band is exploring their special and less common instrumentation with the support of Sam Kassirer, album producer of folk-pop favorites like Lake Street Dive and Joy Kills Sorrow.
