Andie Belle is New England’s saltiest singer/songwriter. A Fall River native, her lyrics evoke the grit and decay of her hometown with a measured, clear-eyed sympathy. Her musical style–informed by training at Berklee College of Music and reminiscent of influences like Neko Case and Lucinda Williams–is marked by articulate guitar work and towering, sit-down-and-shut-up vocals. Belle’s music has found her opening for internationally-touring acts such as The Woods Brothers, Lucius, Elephant Revival and more; be on the lookout for her new album this coming Fall!
Back Porch is an acoustic roots music duo. Dave Osborne and Walter Whitehead share the guitar and vocal duties to create arrangements that bring new energy to old songs and obscure gems from many traditions – blues, country, folk, rockabilly, western swing, and rock and roll. Back Porch is an “uncover” band who digs into the depths of our rich musical heritage to bring you some of the best songs you’ve never heard.
Bliss Point is the acoustic pairing of local musicians Katie Lee and Kelly Ann. Full of musical surprises, Bliss Point strikes the perfect balance between sweetness and ferocity with their blend of unique instrumentation, robust Americana styling, and powerful vocals.
With years of combined experience hosting events for musicians in the Southcoast MA and Rhode Island areas, Kelly and Katie bring an atmosphere of fun and great music everywhere they play, and their commitment to local music has helped them build a loyal following that grows by the day!
Bob Kendall is a singer/songwriter/producer/curator, living on Aquidneck Island, RI. Kendall describes his songs as “telling tales of recrimination and self-deception”.

Kendall’s band is also featured on the release of “The Spindle City Gram Parsons Tribute”. (Narrows Center for the Arts). In 2012 Kendall released “Midnight Flower” which features Tanya Donelly (Throwing Muses, Belly) on the title track. She later released her own version of the song on her Swan Song Series III album. In 2002, Bob released his debut solo album, “Enough is Enough”, which helped land him a spot at the 2002 Newport Folk Festival, the year Dylan returned.

Fourteen Strings were originally a duo with David Conlon on guitar and Matt Smith on mandolin. Hence, the band name. Jason Costa joined a short while later on bass making the band name a source of good-natured ribbing seemingly at every show. All three grew up in the coastal town of South Dartmouth, Massachusetts and have been performing together for over ten years. Fourteen Strings play a blend of country-folk-bluegrass-rock to create a unique sound that’s all their own.
