Husband and wife duo performing acoustic Folk and Americana covers...perfect for the Porch, or in this case the backyard (between 31 and 33 Winter St). So come on by and relax to a few tunes to accompany what should be a great afternoon in Somerville!
Jeremiah Birnbaum is a "rootsy, soulful troubadour" (Time Out, London) with his own brand of "raucous alt-country...a rabbi's son with a touch of whiskey burning his soul" (New York Magazine, Critic's Pick). His most recent release is "Lucky," recorded stripped-down and mostly live in the studio. By January 2013, the record reached #31 on the Roots Music Report charts for New York artists, receiving spins coast-to-coast on many independent folk radio stations, including WFUV in New York.
McJoy and the Saxy Buke Sunshine brings happiness and rainbows to all of its listeners. The combination of two baritone instruments, Baritone Ukelele and Baritone Saxophone, is simply irresistable. We like David Bowie... and folk songs.
I play the kind of music that makes me happy. I will sing and play together this year.
Classic country and 50s/60s standards by the likes of Johnny Cash, Hank Williams, Buck Owens, Elvis, etc.
Yani is an accomplished banjoist, and vocalist. She describes her music as mountain style, or “vintage country”.
Flightless Buttress: melding classical music with classic rock. Featuring John Nolan on guitar, and Calin Peters playing the cello (and if we are lucky the dulcimer). Note: Will be playing in the library's forecourt in the later afternoon, around 3pm.
We are a sing-along, strum-along group of ukulele players with members from Somerville and all over the Greater Boston Area. We pretty much just like to have fun playing music and don't take ourselves too seriously... after all, we are playing ukuleles! Stop by to listen or have some fun with us by singing along... or if you've got a ukulele, bring it with you and jump right in!
The Charnwood Pickers is an official “band” only for porchfest, otherwise, we are a group of friends who get together to pick folk, bluegrass, and country on a semi-regular basis.
