The Black Cadillac Trio

Raw, stripped down music for the modern fan with roots in classic blues, rock and soul, with a touch of country twang. The band’s mix of eclectic covers and original songs is well received whether electric or, as in this case, acoustic.


Colby James and The Ramblers

Singer-songwriter, Colby James, has earned an outstanding reputation as one of the area’s most recognized  and truly gifted vocalists/guitarists to appear on the live stage. “I have written my own music, made a couple of records, played at some of the best dive bars and best listening rooms, and I have been fortunate to have shared the stage with some of my favorite artists”….. As are his words, his genuine style and brand of music are all his own.

 

 

 


The Nocturnal Adoration Society (ft. Jimmy Ryan and Donna Sartanowicz)

After some twenty-five years of marriage, long time local, touring, and studio musician Jimmy Ryan teamed up with his wife, Donna Sartanowicz to write songs and play music. This new collaboration seamlessly blends a variety of musical perspectives and with only bass guitar and mandolin/mandocello this pairing is like nothing else out there. Straight-foward, honest songs delivered with heartfelt harmonies and intricate mandolin work.

 

 


Mike Laureanno

Mike Laureanno hails from Fall River, MA. Dave Palmater, Folk-DJ of WUMB Boston Public Radio, calls Mike Fall River’s poet laureate. Mike is proud of his roots and many of his songs deal with his gritty blue collar hometown and the lives of his family and friends. He has won many songwriting contests across the country including the 2017 Wildflower, TX songwriting contest and the 2016 Woody Guthrie songwriting contest. Mike is also a skilled recording engineer, producer and veteran sideman. He produced and recorded all of his albums in his home studio in Providence, RI and he served twelve years as the bass player for the legendary NYC Fast Folk founder, Jack Hardy.

 


Songwriters in the Round: Swapping stories, laughs, and music!
SITR is made up by Chuck Williams, Steven Pelland, and Gary Fish

For a folk singer, Chuck Williams is never at a loss for words. His lyrics, at times, are rural poetry of forests, roads, farmlands, prairie and if there’s a touch of fantasy – in the hands of Chuck it will work as a folk song. Steven Pelland has written hundreds of songs and performed across the country. He enjoys exploring new tuning as a finger style guitarist. Gary Fish was a fisherman for years, but his love is writing songs. Fish is also a part of the duo Redbone Fish and is the open mic host at Sandywoods Farm in Tiverton.

 


Southcoast Brass Band

The Southcoast Brass Band is dedicated to the traditions of jazz & funk that radiate from New Orleans. They have been featured at the Southern New England Heart Walk, the Cape Verdean Recognition Parade, Madeira Feast in New Bedford, AHA! New Bedford, New Bedford Jazzfest, William Street Festival, New Bedford Holiday Stroll, Bayside in Fairhaven, Greasyluck in New Bedford, and monthly at Gilda’s Stone Rooster in Marion, MA.

3 Sneakers, Unlaced: Unplugged, acoustic
version of Cheap Sneakers

The Silks deliver honest sounds of the blues-based rock n roll variety. You’ve got guitar pyrotechnics galore from frontman Tyler-James Kelly. Chicken-pickin’ or taking a soaring lead break, it’s quickly apparent Kelly is on a whole’nother level. It makes you wonder just when did he get his first real six-string? Then there’s the voice. Bluesy, however you want to describe it, it just sounds like ripping a telephone book in half and feels like scratching a really good itch.
