    She may be best known as the former guitarist and singer-songwriter from string phenom Twisted Pine, but her work as a solo artist shows there's much more to Rachel Sumner that we are just now getting to see. Praised by audiences for her powerful, lonesome voice and haunting songs, Rachel carefully spins melodies that get caught in your head and delivers them “with an attitude and drive in her guitar playing...sure to strike a chord and dig deep into your heart. ” (Red Line Roots)

    Lady Dust - Opening act


    Lady Dust is the accidental side project of Kaitlin Crull, Lindsey Cook, and Emily Cunningham, the more lady-like half of six piece folk group Noble Dust. Blending classical trumpet and cello arrangements with folk sensibility and storytelling, the trio crafts original tunes and reimagines old folk favorites. 

    Open Mic - Open Mic before and after the break. Sign up at the door when we open at 6:30 PM.  No early sign-ups.  You must sign yourself up.  Four 8 minute slots before intermission and two 8 minute slots after intermission.  First come, first served until our slots are full.

    When blues legend James Montgomery plays the harmonica, he “brings it on home”.  Whether it’s recording with Kid Rock, sitting in with Gregg Allman, or fronting his hot band of thirty years, Montgomery plays with authority.  While growing up in Detroit he learned first hand from the masters – James Cotton, John Lee Hooker, and Jr. Wells – at the legendary “Chessmate”.  Over the years, he’s carried on in the tradition and continues to be a vital presence in Blues as one of the most dynamic performers on the scene.  David Hull’s career in music spans playing bass with Buddy Miles, Joe Cocker, Ted Nugent, and Arthur Lee with his band Love, as well as being the studio and touring bassist and background vocalist for the first two albums of the Joe Perry Project, with several songs on the band’s first two albums co-written by Hull. In September 2010, Hull released a solo CD Soul in Motion, on which he performed guitar, bass and lead vocals. He currently tours with the James Montgomery band, and was involved in the album From Detroit to the Delta, producing the recording, playing bass, guitar and keys, co-writing, arranging, engineering, and singing backing vocals.  Paul Doolittle is well known on the South Shore as a dedicated guitar teacher at Crossroads Music.  He has played in several popular local bands, including his current projects with Rock Star Posers and Kelsey Gilbert. He will bring to the stage his accomplished guitar playing, knowledge of musicianship, and familiarity with blues music that is apparent in his live performances.

    Lisa Bastoni’s new album, How We Want to Live (Sept. 20, 2019) chronicles life changes, including songs about the dissolution of her marriage and learning to live a new normal -- but more than anything, it finds the songwriter diving deeper into the life she craves. Throughout the album’s ten tracks, themes wind from romantic relationships to those with her children, parents, and friends -- weaved throughout, are her hopes for herself and the world around her. How We Want to Live, produced by award-winning songwriter/producer/multi-instrumentalist Sean Staples, features guest performances by Mark Erelli, Rose Cousins, Lula Wiles and Naomi Sommers.  A 2019 Kerrville New Folk Winner, Lisa Bastoni has shared the stage with Lori McKenna, Little Big Town, Arlo Guthrie, Regina Spektor, The Secret Sisters, Teddy Thompson, and many more.  Following a ten-year break from music, Lisa Bastoni's album The Wishing Hour (2017), produced by Grammy-nominated songwriter Felix McTeigue, was recorded in the kids' playroom in the wee hours of the night. It debuted as number one most-played on Boston's WUMB and led to a number of songwriting awards and an active performance schedule.  "Americana of the highest order...along the lines of Gretchen Peters or Patty Griffin." (Maverick-UK).


    With a perspective equally influenced by her Texas roots and her Cape Cod home, Americana singer-songwriter Monica Rizzio has emerged as one of the finest talents in the East Coast music scene. Monica released her debut album, aptly named Washashore Cowgirl, in 2016; where it was Monica’s solo introduction after a decade in the trio Tripping Lily, Sunshine is Free is her expansion -- after time spent on the road, she realized it was time for her to start collaborating again and recorded the album in Nashville with producer Michael Rinne and a stacked lineup of guest musicians. Throughout the eleven tracks on Sunshine Is Free, Monica appreciates the little things in life and looks for silver linings where necessary. It’s clear she has a keen ability to connect; her songs are often autobiographical but delivered through a fictional approach that aids in creating a universal experience for the listener -- whether it’s expressed using her trademark sense of humor or with such striking honesty that the pain in her voice is tangible.

    Danielle Miraglia comes armed with a strong steady thumb on an old Gibson, an infectious stomp-box rhythm and harmonica with tunes ranging from heart-felt to socially conscious that will move both your heart and hips. Her latest "All My Heroes Are Ghosts," released with her band Danielle M and The Glory Junkies  touches on a lot of what might be on your mind these days – from the loss of so many musical heroes to our collective anxieties on “All On Fire,” and more..   The music itself blends influences of some of Miraglia’s own musical heroes - The Rolling Stones, Prince, Janis Joplin along with Danielle's lyrical ability to explore human nature at its best and worst.   Danielle M and The Glory Junkies were nominated for a 2018 Boston Music Award for "Blues Artist of the Year" and Danielle is nominated for 2019 New England Music Award for Roots Act of the Year and Female Performer of the Year.
