Price $18. www.norajanestruthers.com
Nora Jane Struthers is a talented songwriter, singer, and guitarist whose keen appreciation of the nuances of traditional music shines in her own work. Struthers music is among the purest Americana being created today. She sees her music as not bluegrass, not really old time,not folk. but a blend of all three. She has already received recognition an one of the topup-and-coming voices on the Americana scene. She has won the neo-traditional band competition at West Virginia’s Appalachian String Band Festival, and her song ”Greenbrier County” placed as a finalist in Colorado's Telluride Troubadour competition. “Nora Jane infuses bright, fresh lyrics into this traditional genre with sheer intelligence. Musically,she takes unconventional twists and turns, while ‘holding you to the road’ with commanding charm.” - Claire Lynch


April 11 Amy Gallatin & Stillwaters - $16 - www.amygallatin.com
The powerhouse duo of Amy Gallatin and renowned resophonic guitarist Roger Williams—20 and 40 year veterans of the New England music scene--joined forces a few years ago to explore their mutual love of country standards, served up with an acoustic treatment in the bluegrass vein. The result is a toe-tapping blend of heartfelt vocals, soaring harmonies and red-hot picking, traditional yet modern and distinct.

Grasshopper Sparrow
Grasshopper Sparrow
Northwest Park has two male Grasshopper Sparrows singing in the Park's "Long Field." These birds are endangered and the Park has spent much time and money to prepare the fields as grasslands to attract this species. We give recognition to these folks for finding the birds:: Brian Kleiman, Laura Boglisch, and Jamie Meyers. The photos are by Ford Parker
