“Heartfelt intelligence and unselfconsciously sophisticated.”
-Rolling Stone

Mollie O’Brien & Rich Moore 

Mollie O’Brien and her husband, guitarist Rich Moore, have for nearly 30 years quietly made it their mission to find, mine and reinvent other artists’ songs. They are geniuses at the craft of interpretation in the way that great singers, since the beginning of popular American music, have made the songs of their era their own. As songwriters they add their own tunes to the canon of American roots music they inhabit and show us they’re completely at home with their musical selves. Their stage presence exudes a kind of comfort that comes from an intimate understanding of the music and each other. The resulting dynamic creates meandering melodies with harmonies between voice and guitar that build up and break down with punctuated resolves. This will be a rare opportunity to see a singer of such caliber perform in an acoustic setting such as West Newbury Hall.

Cold Chocolate

A unique and natural form of original Americana that shuffles together Folk, Funk and Bluegrass with styled percussion by drummer Ariel Bernstein. The modern lyricism complements the musicianship of Kirsten Lamb (upright bass) and Ethan Robbins (guitar) adding a final touch that codifies the sound as their own.

“The band’s approach is decidedly modern, with as much an influence from folk and swing as from hard driving bluegrass. Song topics also more reflect the urban environment in which they live than the country or rural themes that dominate so much bluegrass from southeastern artists.”

John Lawless


“They sound softer than the dew on the mountainside, harder than a Harley pushing back red dust, sweeter than true love.”

Frank Young – Gypsy Jazz

The man is an absolute guitar wizard! In the tradition of Django Rienhardt, Frank Young of Quebec dazzles audiences with velocity and precision as he wills complex arrangements out of his instrument. As if that is not enough, he will be accompanied by Gypsy Jazz masters Denis Chang and Will Dickerson.
