Tom Smith grew up in rural Pennsylvania in a family where music was part of the fabric of everyday life. As a young man living at the epicenter of the folk-quake that was Cambridge, MA in the 1960’s, Tom solidified what has become a life-long love of self-made music. Now a folk veteran of over forty-five years, Tom performs at festivals, coffeehouses, schools, and concerts throughout the Northeastern United States to audiences large and small, young and old.
Erin Ash Sullivan writes music that focuses on the power of stories to build connection and calls back to the style and spirit of her music idols, which include Joni Mitchell, Patty Griffin, John Prine and Ellis Paul. Her shows are warm, intimate, heartfelt, and funny, with tales that are authentic and drawn from her lived experience, shining a light on the ties that bind us all together.
A songwriter since high school years, Steve Robb was studying the songs of Dan Fogelberg and James Taylor at the same time that he was those of John Coltrane and the American Songbook. That diversity shows in his music, and he honors many styles in his writing and recording, from Country to Blues, Roots to Reggae, Folk to Rock. Not one to settle on just 3 chords (TRUTH!) his songs often venture to the unexpected, if not the unconventional.
