David Mallett

In a career spanning four decades, he has recorded 17 albums, had several hundred covers of his songs, including the American folk classic Garden Song [Inch by Inch, Row by Row] and performed in clubs, concert halls and festivals across the US, Canada and Europe. He has appeared on numerous broadcasts, including National Public Radio’s A Prairie Home Companion. Known for his carefully written, poetic offerings, his body of work has provided material for an eclectic list of artists that includes Alison Krauss, Pete Seeger, Hal Ketchum, Emmylou Harris, John Denver and the Muppets. Born and raised in Sebec, where he still lives, Mallett grew up in a musical family (a tradition continued in his own home); in his 20s, he found a mentor in Noel Paul Stookey, who introduced Mallett’s The Garden Song to Pete Seeger.

The Mallett Brothers Band

The Mallett Brothers Band is an independent rock and roll / Americana / country band from Maine. Their busy tour schedule since forming in 2009 has helped them to build a dedicated fanbase across the U.S. and beyond while still calling the state of Maine their home. With a style that ranges from alt- country to Americana, country, jam and roots rock, theirs is a musical melting pot that’s influenced equally by the singer/songwriter tradition as by harder rock, classic country and psychedelic sounds.

Chris Poulson and the Social Club

Chris Poulson, former Greenville resident, opens Sunday’s festivities with her recent collaboration, The Social Club. This combo brings a fresh swing to old jazz standards as well as some 70’s favorites, back to life. With Chris on vocals, guitar and flute, she is joined by veteran musicians, Lefty McAuslin on saxophone, Frank Dionne on piano and accordion, David Thibodeau on bass and Dick Hollis on drums.

Denny Breau

Denny Breau’s rhythmically flawless and dazzlingly clear style allows him to do amazing and stunning things with a six-string guitar. He first draws in an audience with a finely arranged melody and then slides effortlessly into scorching finger work that sets ears aflame. The lighting fast guitar lines that seem almost humanly impossible to accomplish are balanced with those that have a quiet intimacy and wrap tenderly around his carefully crafted songs. He mixes genres with ease — folk, Delta blues, country and jazz — “creating a totally accessible musical mélange that captivates as it entertains,”.

Black Cat Road

From Denmark, Peru, and Portland Maine, Black Cat Road is some swampy, badass, funky goodness. Bringing to the stage, a musical collection of soulful, emotional, rootsy, and raw tales from icy bayous. A dirt road with some twists and turns you may want to slow down for. Steve Bailey on Guitar and Vox Jessica Hines on Vox and Washboard Kate Seavey on Bass and Vox Don Reed on Keys and Percussion Chris Hartogh on Drums.

The Boneheads

The Boneheads are made up of Bob Colwell (keyboards, vocals), Scott Elliot (bass, guitar, vocals), Dickie-Doo Hollis (drums, vocals), and Steve Jones (guitar, vocals). Based in southern Maine, this popular group’s unique blend of roots music includes folk, rock, blues, country, Cajun and soul.

They have a full complement of original material in addition to an extensive playlist of covers and enjoy mixing things up and surprising the audience. The Boneheads date from 1991 and have put out a number of albums that have been consistently praised by major publications. They have been described as a band of honest musicians doing what they love.
