Band Contact: Jill McCracken
Saturday, May 12 2:00 PM - 4:00 PM

Jill McCracken is an indie songstress that thrives on classic pop and soul. Her catalog of original songs over the past 10 years have evolved from an indie rock upbringing to a soulful pop sound that draws inspiration from Lake Street Dive, Kat Wright, Nicole Atkins, Amy Winehouse, Aretha Franklin, Paul Simon, and of course, The Beatles. Constantly voicing tales of misadventures and love of all kinds, Jill's performance is intimate, sincere, and unrelenting. Backed by her long time friend and musical partner Kevin Ewer (drums), these two are delighted to have added Jim Horvath (guitar) and Brendan Duran (bass) to the lineup.

Soulful rock n’ roll. That’s the best way to describe Boston’s Dan & the Wildfire. Since 2011, they’ve been crushing stages around the country with elements of soul, folk, blues, jazz, and country. With two full length albums in tow, Smoke Signals (2012) and Bull Moose (2015), the Wildfire crew is excited to bring on a new phase in 2017. Their new single, Nothing But Love, dropped in February, and the band is currently gearing up to record a fresh batch of tunes. In the meantime, they're spreading wildfire throughout the Northeast.
