Hungrytown (Saturday 2-3 p.m.)
After more than a decade of world-wide touring and three album releases, Vermont-based Rebecca Hall and Ken Anderson–otherwise known as the folk duo Hungrytown–have earned a reputation for the quality and authenticity of their songwriting. Lyricist Rebecca Hall is credited with compositions “that sound as timeless as any traditional songs” (Northern Sky, UK), while producer/multi-instrumentalist/husband Ken Anderson is lauded for his “remarkable affinity for instrumental embellishment” (No Depression) and for crafting Hungrytown’s “gorgeous vocal harmonies” (Folk and Roots, UK).
Alastair Moock (Saturday 3-4 p.m.)
- Boston-based singer-songwriter Alastair Moock made a name for himself on the folk and Americana circuit touring throughout the U.S. and Europe and playing major venues including the Newport Folk Festival and Norway’s Bergen Music Fest. He won songwriter contests at the Falcon Ridge, Sisters, and Great Waters folk festivals and was nominated for a 2007 Boston Music Award for Outstanding Singer-Songwriter of the Year. When Moock concluded it was time to move on, he decided to make one more album: a tribute both to his own newborn daughters and to a generation of musical heroes — Woody Guthrie, Leadbelly, Pete Seeger, Mississippi John Hurt — who wrote and played, proudly and undiscriminatingly, for both adults and kids. The album, A Cow Says Moock, became Moock’s most successful project to date. It led to three more family albums, which together garnered most of the top awards in American children’s music, including a 2013 GRAMMY Nomination.

Eric French (Sunday 2-3 p.m.)
- Whether solo with a resonator & stomping on a cigar box, or wielding a Stratocaster fronting his 10 piece ensemble The French Quarter, Eric French’s swaggering blues, rock ‘n roll and N’awleans boogie shines as brightly as his National guitar. A working musician since the age of 16, Eric was brought up on a steady diet of electric blues by his father. After attending Berklee College of Music in Boston, Eric lived and performed in Nashville and New York working to create his own identity as an artist. Now having released several records while also working as a sideman for more than a decade, the guitar-slinger/songwriter is finally embodying all the influence and experience he’s gathered to create his most genuine work to date.

Danielle Miraglia (Sunday 3-4 p.m.)
- Danielle Miraglia comes armed with a strong steady thumb on an old Gibson, an infectious stomp-box rhythm and a harmonica with tunes ranging from heart-felt to socially conscious that will move both your heart and hips. On her latest “Glory Junkies” she’s joined by a killer cast of musicians blending the classic rock vibe of The Rolling Stones and Janis Joplin with Danielle’s signature lyrical ability to explore human nature at its best and worst. Danielle was nominated for a 2015 Boston Music Award for Singer-Songwriter of the Year.

Bow Thayer (Sunday 4-5 p.m.)
Bow Thayer is an accomplished and prolific songwriter who cultivates influences from the worlds of rock, blues, folk, prog, bluegrass and everything and anything in between to produce music on his signature hybrid six-string that is heartfelt, soulful and uniquely his. American Songwriter Magazine said this “onetime Levon Helm compatriot is the best artist to come from New England in recent years.” Last year, Bow released “The Source and the Servant,” a collection of songs inspired by the music of Dock Boggs and Mississippi Fred McDowell. As one reviewer put it, “Whatever mix of woodshed practice, crossroad deals with dapper devils and guided ayahuasca ceremony it takes to make those blues your own, Thayer passed that point many moons ago.”
