Kristen Ford is a ball of energy on stage, pushing joy into the crowd and getting the audience to echo back this enthusiasm. No two shows are the same as she loves to include spur of the moment ad lib songs, solos and jams, and a smattering of personal quips and anecdotes between songs. Her solo performance of beat-boxing, playing percussion with her feet, looping guitar riffs and hushing the crowd for intimate finger-picking songs, are only rivaled by her stance as a band leader. Her band mates play drums, bass, lead guitar, violin and sing harmonies, and push acoustic songs into a new realm of dance, rock and reggae music.
Named after a Victorian children’s game, What Time Is It, Mr. Fox? can time-travel from the woods of Medieval France to a 1930s New Orleans jukejoint. Led by the gender-defying voice of Brian King, the ensemble delivers their own brand of smoky cabaret, neo-soul and acoustic noir, sounding something like Tom Waits and Amy Winehouse performing in a French café. The soul of the band is rooted in its songs - poetic, inventive, emotionally naked meditations on love, religion, sexuality, and identity in the tradition of songwriters like Leonard Cohen, Nina Simone, and Laura Nyro. The band also loves to reimagine classics from Johnny Cash, Prince, and Joni Mitchell to Irish folk tunes and Appalachian murder ballads. Whether at intimate coffeehouses to music halls and outdoor festivals, their music and lyrics connect deeply with audiences of all ages.
Bern & the Brights formed in 2008 and have since been sharing their brand of danceable, romantic nerd-rock. Their first gig was held during the closing night of a local bookstore. They have since acquired an unusual number of fans who are librarians, vagrant café rats, and introverted record collectors. Their sound can be described as familiar but fresh, warm, and feverously energetic. This new record, with its guitar-laden rock at the forefront, should be played loudly on a long drive. Their songs range from providing commentary on the suffering economy and the everyday person’s basic longing to be happy and free to the work of romantic relationships, the work of introspection, and the work of keeping up your spirits and holding onto what matters.

Doors open at 6:30p All of the proceeds will go towards the Newton Food Pantry!! http://www.newtonfoodpantry.org/ Ellis Paul's [;;www.EllisPaul.com];;; songwriting credentials are unassailable. They are as genuine as the fifteen Boston Music Awards he has earned, as indelible as the tattoo of Woody Guthrie that adorns his arm, and as authentic as the musical roots he draws upon with every note he plays. Ellis grew up in a potato farming family in Maine, earned a track scholarship to Boston College and got his musical start at Boston's open-mic scene. It was a time and a place that nurtured some of the country's top singer/songwriters. Ellis was one of its more memorable exports who earned his place on the national map with 20+ years of playing 150+ shows annually, putting out 19 releases, as well as two books and a documentary film. Ellis' music is known internationally from songs placed in blockbuster Hollywood films such as Me, Myself, and Irene, Shallow Hall, and Hall Pass. His fiercely loyal fan base funded his last two releases which were both produced by Kristian Bush from the Grammy award winning band Sugarland. Known as one of the hardest working troubadours working on the circuit, Ellis' work ethic and songwriting talents have propelled him the top of the American singer-songwriter world.
