Concert Line-Up
Laney Jones

Laney Jones's songwriting is as quirky and charming as her upbringing in rural Mount Dora, Florida. Raised on an exotic animal farm surrounded by an alligator-infested lake, she artfully spins tall tales of love and adventure in the swamplands. Laney's voice has been described as a mix of lemon, molasses, gin and gunpowder. Her talents on the banjo have been augmented by studying with prominent clawhammer and old-time technicians such as Mark Johnson and Bruce Molsky. Laney also incorporates multi-instrumental prowess on ukulele and harmonica in her live shows and recordings.

Grey Season

Grey Season electrifies living room music, fixing harmonies atop folk-influenced rock 'n' roll. The variety show that is a Grey Season performance may include the occasional five-part harmony, blues rooted guitar solos and lyricism, and memorable melodies driven by the nostalgic plucking of bouzoukis and banjos. Grey Season is a band that calls upon a collective musical memory while pushing forward with the power of song and the hearts of a growing audience. Grey Season's "songs on life, love, heartache, and hope are so wonderfully constructed they could leave an impression on even the coldest of souls" wrote the online magazine Under the Gun Review.

Fate & the Family Band

Fate & the Family Band is a Boston based blues/rock band with some serious soul. With influences ranging from Derek Trucks and Grace Potter to Willie Nelson and the Band, Fate & the Family Band takes old school sounds and puts a new coat of paint on them. After a year of playing together, Fate & the Family Band has an EP and numerous shows under its belt. With fresh tunes, dance moves, and an inviting vibe, you'll want to join the Family.

The Western Den

Driven by a passion to create music with purpose, Deni Hlavinka and Chris West formed the Western Den in 2013 to blend compelling folk harmonies with ambient textures, producing a sound all their own. The duo released their debut EP "Battle Hymns" in May 2013 and premiered by opening for Melissa Ferrick on her national tour that summer. The Western Den performs in Boston and is working on a full-length album. Click here for "Carter Hall" one the duo's recent effort.
