Scheduled Performances for 2014:
October 23 (Thursday):
Brett Dennen Presents Water Colors, a Special Acoustic Evening click for details
Five years ago, Brett Dennen was a camp counselor who played guitar, wrote songs and performed fireside. With a self-made album, he began playing coffee shops along the West Coast and a devoted following formed. A modest independent record deal led first to his 2006 break-through album, So Much More, then to the attention of music critics, programmers and established artists. Though his once intimate audience has grown substantially, Brett remains the folky, soulful, witty and insightful artist that first captured hearts in California coffee houses. Noting his success, Rolling Stone Magazine named Brett one of the “10 Artists To Watch in 2008.” he's come along way since then. Come "watch him" here at SMAC up close and personal. We are so glad he is coming back up the hill to us!

October 24
(Friday): Legend Dr. Ralph Stanley & Clinch Mountain Boys details

There is a lotta stretching boundaries when it comes to bluegrass these days....and that's okay, but if you want the real true-grass deal.....the original, this is the show to see. Dr. Ralph Stanley is an American icon and cultural treasure. He was among the first generation of bluegrass music and architect of a branch of bluegrass that drew on ancient mountain folk traditions. The "Boys", support him respectfully and musically and just put on a great down home show. Ralph has been here a few times, but I suspect this might be the last time we get to see him tour, as there is talk of him finally retiring. But in Ralph's own words: "God has had his hand on my career for the past 68 years. It's up to him when I will quit. I have no plans of slowing down. I love my fans, and I love performing." Well we love him back. Come see this legend, so you can say ya did!

November 7
(Friday):Shemekia Copeland click for details
Shemekia Copeland is being called the “Queen of the Blues.” Like Koko Taylor, Bessie Smith, Alberta Hunter, Helen Humes and a host of women who have worn that crown, her voice is the best pure blues voice you'll ever here in these parts... or anywhere for that matters. She fills a room with her energy and lifts everyone up! Come enjoy a great night with the reigning queen!

November 8
(Saturday): Capitol Steps (one show only) click for details
They are back, and just in time for the election results! They Put the MOCK in Democracy. Music and political satire by The Capitol Steps, the Washington-based troupe of Congressional staffers turned songwriters. This was one of the first acts I booked when we first opened..it's like having good friends visiting when they are here. And don't we all need a good laugh when it comes to politics these days?

November 10
(Monday): Ani DiFranco click for details
Since Ani bucked the major label system in the early-'90s, opting to release her music on her own terms, the self-described Little Folksinger has been the subject of all kinds of hyperbole. She's been called "fiercely independent" (Rolling Stone), "inspirational" (All Music Guide), "the ultimate do-it-yourself songwriter" (The New York Times), etc. As the cracks in the music industry get larger and more big-name artists follow Ani's lead - Radiohead, Madonna and Nine Inch Nails among them - maybe people will just start calling her "smart."

We will call us lucky for getting to see her here in our small little hall. Ani represents the rare few who think out of the box when it comes to the music industry, and it is that spirit that infects others to do things like putting up an arts center in the middle of nowhere! We are honored to present this special show. She will be on a small tour, so get your tickets early.

November 14
(Friday): "Ladies Tri Folkta" click for details

November 22
(Saturday): Paula Cole click for details
Simply one of the best female singers I have ever heard. Songs like "Where have all the Cowboys Gone" and "I Don't Want to Wait" put her on the list of chart busters. But the first time I heard her she was singing back up for Peter Gabriel. When he featured her, it was clear by the hush and then roar of the crowd that she was headed for bigger and better things. Of course her star rose quickly and now we are lucky to be able to present her in our humble hall. Just what we need to warm up the start of winter. The only cool, will be the styling of her emotionally charged voice singing her own songs of life, love and a philosophy that is all her own. Don't miss it.

November 29
(Saturday): Chris Smither and the Motivators click for details
Honing a synthesis of folk and blues for 50 years, Chris Smither is truly an American original. His new CD, Still On the Levee, is a career-spanning retrospective double CD. Recorded in New Orleans with studio-mates, The Motivators, Still On the Levee plays host to special guests including Allen Toussaint and Loudon Wainwright III. The record highlights the vast catalog of an American music master. Reviewers and fans from around the world agree that Chris is a profound songwriter, a blistering guitarist and, as he puts it, a 'one-man band to the bone!’ Chris melds the guitar styles of his two major influences, Lightnin' Hopkins and Mississippi John Hurt, into his own signature sound. His music continues to draw deeply from the blues, American folk music, modern poets and humanist philosophers. 'Link Of Chain', a tribute album of Chris Smither originals with stellar versions by Dave Alvin, Tim O'Brien, Bonnie Raitt, Josh Ritter, Loudon Wainwright III, Jorma Kaukonen, Eilen Jewell and others is now available from Signature Sounds.

Scheduled Performances for 2015:
January 16 (Friday): Junior Brown click for details
What could be better to warm up a winter night...then the rockabilly and guitar "steeling" sounds of Junior Brown. He is completely original..a little retro country a little rock and roll and a lotta wow! His unique voice, more unique songwriting craft, and even more unique double necked "Guit-Steel", there has absolutely never been anyone like Junior Brown. This signature guitar of his own creating is not the only thing that makes him an "American Original" as his website says. Just watch this video and you will be hooked.

January 17 (Saturday): Jeff Daniels and The Ben Daniels Band click for details
Emmy winning actor Jeff Daniels, is not just of stage and screen....
We have loved him most recently on HBO's series' "Newsroom" ..some of ther best TV I have seen in a long time. And although mostly a serious actor, my husband Jeff will shake his hand for his work with Jim Carrey in Dumb and Dumber...and yes the sequel will be out soon! He is an accomplished guitar player, songwriter and singer....he is not just resting on his big screen laurels. All that aside, he will be here for the music and his Son Ben's band will be an added treat to the night. >From their opening song to the finale of their set, the Ben Daniels Band cuts through with their originality, musicianship, and a sound that spans Americana, Blues, Jazz, and Rock. Come see a bit of Hollywood blood in Brownfield!

P.S. Read how Mister Daniels describes this journey....
Well, mostly I act, write when I can, play a Martin OM Jeff Daniels Custom Signature Edition guitar, have directed a couple indie films but wouldn’t do it again, written about 400 songs, played over 300 gigs the past 12 years from Maine to Alaska to Californ-i-a, my preferred venue of choice being all sorts of clubs and off the beaten track opera houses, pursue the maddening game of golf, carry a single digit handicap, so there, founded The Purple Rose Theatre Company in Chelsea, Michigan, where occasionally a play of mine will be produced – see: write when I can – most recently and quite often can be seen as Will McAvoy on HBO’s THE NEWSROOM and once sat on a toilet in a movie with Jim Carrey. The rest you can google. So, along with giving you a peek at the music side of my life – don’t panic, it’s not what you think – I plan on opening my little window into the digital universe and valiantly meandering my way towards something I have yet to define and probably never will. -Jeff Daniels

January 18
(Sunday): Ben Hammond click for details
Album Release Show and Music Video Premier
Locally-grown song builder Ben Hammond returns a third time to SMAC and invites you to celebrate the release of his third album "Friction". The songs on the record and in the live show range from full band arrangements of soul, Americana, rock and reggae (often within the same composition) alongside one-man-band style "sound on sound" recordings constructed live on stage via his loop pedal. According to the Portland Press Herald review of Ben's 2011 CD/DVD package "Solo at Stone Mountain", "Hammond is a versatile musician who writes memorable originals, delivers when he decides to cover someone, and uses his guitar, voice and gadgets to create a sound that you want to keep hearing." Expect all that, plus add in some looped upright bass, surprise guest musicians from all over the Eastern seaboard, AND the premier of two brand new music videos for songs off of "Friction", filmed in Sarasota, FL and Marin County, California. We are glad to welcome him back up the hill!

January 22 (Thursday): Waltzings for Dreamers FREE Music Series click for details
featuring Dustbowl Revival
L.A. WEEKLY says of Dustbowl Revival:"In a city like Los Angeles, home to musical stars in nearly every known genre, handing out the Best Live Band title is not easy. But the free-thinking local collective Dustbowl Revival's upbeat, old-school, All-American sonic safaris exemplify everything shows should be: hot, spontaneous, engaging and, best of all, a pleasure to hear." It'll be their first time here at SMAC and we're looking forward to seeing them LIVE. You should come check 'em out, too! Hey, AND it's a free show!!

This show is free admission by reservation.

In the spirit of providing, we ask that if possible, you bring a donation in the form of cat or dog food, bleac, detergent, and "hardwood" pellets for the Harvest Hills Animal Shelter.

February 7 (Saturday): Session Americana click for details
with Dietrich Strause & Jefferson Hamer
It's who is sitting at the table this time around when Session Americana graces our stage.

This folk rock supergroup presents their shared songs literally around a table wired with microphones, a bunch of funky instruments and a camaraderie that makes you feel right at home. Sometimes presenting the latest batch of original songs, sometimes reaching back into depths of the American "song bag"... Says David Greenberger of NPR :"I'd give them 100 miles. That is to say, if they're playing anywhere within 100 miles of your home, you drive there and are grandly rewarded for your effort." Looks like it's time to fill up the tank and head to Brownfield!

February 12
(Thursday): Beau Soleil avec Michael Doucet click for details
This Grammy Award winning group takes the rich Creole traditions of Louisiana and artfully blends elements of zydeco,New Orleans jazz, Tex-Mex, country, blues, and more into a satisfying musical recipe. These guys are so much fun!!! This night will take the chill out of your winter bones so don't miss it!

February 14 (Saturday): Stone Mountain Musical Wine Dinner click for details

The fun starts at 5:30 in the Quisisana Barn with apps and your first wine so be prompt. And ask us about a taxi service if you need it. Ask for a special price for designated drivers. A Ticket includes a night's musical and visual entertainmment by Carol Noonan and friends, a five course meal and a 5 wines to try!! And dont forget roses on the table too!!!

February 20
(Friday):Anna Lombard & Band with the Jason Spooner Band details
A Great Double bill!
*Jason Spooner.... multi-award winning New England-based songwriter discovered his father's collection of eight-track tapes as a child and never looked back. His writing style continues to emerge as a crucial strength that sets this Portland, Maine-based artist apart from the fray of young songwriters populating the New England music scene. A constant on Satellite Radio and is sharing stages with artists from BB King to Ray Lamontage. See why the Portland Phoenix said he is "an amalgamation of John Prine and John Mayer"
*Anna Lombard was here this summer this Rustic Overtones...made me sory I had not had her here sooner. A terrific voice, and was recently nominated in the New England Music Awards for “Songwriter of the Year” and “Female Performer of the Year”. We look forward to hearing her do her own thing :>)

February 26
(Thursday): Greg Brown click for details
One of the best singer songwriters of our time. His haunting images of his midwest upbringing couples with his Leonard Cohen type growl, is infectious. Grammy nominated, Greg is a musician's musician and his tribute album attracted heavy hitters like Mary Chapin Carpenter and Lucinda Williams to record his songs. Always a stirring night and a sell out.

February 28
(Saturday): Eric Bibb with Michael Jerome Browne click for details
One Great Night of Blues!!!
Eric Bibb: Already enjoying success in Europe, Grammy nominee Eric Bibb is becoming a familiar face – and voice – in the U.S. Nominated for nine W.C. Handy Blues Music Awards and winner of the Best Newcomer title in the British Blues Awards, Bibb has been appropriately described as “discreetly awesome” and “a total original.” As his popularity escalates, earlier comparisons to legendary greats Ry Cooder and Taj Mahal are being replaced by quotes that speak to Bibb’s ability to “use standard blues ingredients to cook up something all his own.”
Michael Jerome Browne: The blues is a common thread that runs through virtually all of the music derived from the early American South, and nobody “gets” this connection better than internationally acclaimed singer and multi-instrumentalist Michael Jerome Browne. Browne performs everything from old Appalachian music to Chicago blues with such captivating authenticity that he’s earned three Juno nominations in two distinct categories.

March 5 ( Thursday): Bob Marley click for details
You know'em, you love'm...more than 15 years as a stand-up comic, Maine's own Bob Marley is one of the hottest and most sought after comedians in the country. He has raised more than $12,000 for the Barbara Bush Children's Hospital after setting a new world's record for longest continuous stand-up routine as recognized by the Guinness Book of Records. He has been featured in his own special on Comedy Central, and is one of the few comics to do the complete late night TV circuit: The Late Show with David Letterman, The Tonight Show with Jay Leno, Late Night with Conan O’Brien and The Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson and Craig Kilborn. But all those accolades aside, he is just one of us, and we can't get enough of him. Always a sell out.

March 10
(Tuesday): Jimmie Vaughan click for details
Texas Blues Guitarist is an American blues rock Jimmy Vaughan will bring a powerhouse of a show to Stone Mountain! Before going solo, he was the show stopping guitarist for the Fabulous Thunderbirds. Older brother of the late Texas legend Stevie Ray Vaughan, he embraces a long list of traditional blues players. A show not to be missed!

March 14 ( Saturday): Howie Day and Ellis Paul click for details
What a great double bill!! We have wanted to get Howie here for awhile and Ellis is a already a SMAC favorite. Both singer songwriters haling from Maine with national success . Different styles, but kindred spirits....will be a great show.

March 27
(Friday): The Mallett Brothers & North of Nashville click for details
Maine alt-country/rock act the Mallett Brothers are quickly making a name for themselves beyond Maine. Sons of the prolific songwriter Dave Mallett, the apple did not fall far from the tree. Slightly more rock than country, theirs is a musical melting pot that's influenced equally by folk and singer/songwriter influences as by harder rock, punk and psychedelic sounds. Led by brothers Luke and Will Mallett, the band is rounded out by Brian Higgins on drums, Nick Leen on bass, and Wally on dobro and electric guitar. It's song-driven music that holds up under the lens of solitary listening, but that's equally apt to crank a room full of rockers into whiskey-fueled high gear. In 2013, the Portland Press Herald named them a 'Band to Watch' and they were nominated for a 2014 New England Music Award as 'Live Band of the Year'.

North of Nashville bandmates Jay Basiner and Andrew Martelle duetting their passion for honky-tonk and the Highwaymen. In 2013, the Portland Press Herald named them a 'Band to Watch' and they were nominated for a 2014 New England Music Award as 'Live Band of the Year'. Gonna be a great night of Maine Americana.

April 4
(Saturday): Gibson Brothers click for details
Oh, I love these guys!!! These young brothers of bluegrass, two time IBMA Entertainers of the Year have been nominated for two 2014 IBMA awards: Entertainer of the Year and Vocal Group of the Year. Come and see why. They write really amazing songs, have beautiful voices and are great on stage. When they joined us for our Christmas shows they brought the house down. They have an ole timey feel that you can't fake...they are the real deal....its like they grew up in a country band decades ago, when the divisions of country music were not so defined. But they are every bit of here now. A personal favorite of mine....Come highly SMAC recommended.

April 8 (Wednesday): Joan Armatrading Up Close and Personal click for details
What can I say about this artist...a huge influence on so many female musicians. She really was ahead of her time.Three times Grammy nominated singer/songwriter, and accomplished guitar player and her songs had a huge impact on pop music. We are very honored to have this big star here.

April 25 (Saturday): The Acoustic Living Room Songs & Stories with Kathy Mattea details
Featuring Bill Cooley
Grammy and CMA multiple award winner Kathy Mattea is one of country music's finest female treasures and our favorites. This special imtimate show will give you a down home taste of having Kathy right in your living room. If you didn't know it, besides a great performer, she is a really warm, witty and funny gal. It will be so fun to get to know her on this special night. Bill will be a terrific addtion as usual too. We welcome Kathy back to the Mountain, and remind her that the snow should be gone by then. (ask her about the night she spent in the bus, on a hill in Brownfield after a snowstorm : >) She is one of us!

May 1
(Friday): Lori McKenna click for details
Singer/songwriter Lori McKenna has won the attention of Mary Gauthier and Faith Hill with her songwriting abilities. Both have recorded her songs to great acclaim. But nobody sings Lori McKenna's songs better than Lori McKenna! Around here she is family and her sweet voice is like nothing else. It's always a treat to have her here!

May 7
(Thursday): John Gorka and Cheryl Wheeler click for details
This is one terrific folk double bill...two of our faves!!!
*CHERYL WHEELER I am always blown away by Cheryl's emotional roller coaster of a show. She can really make you cry with a song, and then really make you laugh with the next one. She wears her politics on her sleeve, with a brutal honesty and has a uniquely Cheryl way of looking at the world..... its a world you will love to live in. Come see why she is always a sell out. A SMAC fave! *JOHN GORKA is an honored icon of folk tradition. Energetic acoustic music that is not a trend, not a fad, but an expression of everyday life, is his trademark. John's rich baritone voice and unique songcraft weave a magical spell that can only be described as 'Gorka.' "Gorka is widely heralded for the sophisticated intelligence and provocative originality of his songs." - Boston Globe

May 8
(Friday): Alasdair Fraser & Natalie Haas click for details
We cannot get enough of this master Scottish fiddler and his beautuful cellist sidekick. They sell out everytime....the show is fun, beautiful and Alasdair is a presence who just makes you feel great. A toe tapping night of fiddle music and Scottish story telling. This is SMAC at its best when these two are here.

May 15 (Friday): Jonathan Edwards click for details
Barefoot and tanned, Jonathan Edwards has never looked and sounded better. Of course he is known for his big hits, like "Sunshhine" and "Shanty", but his music is as fresh now as when those tunes made him famous. Four decades into a stellar career of uncompromising musical integrity, the man simply delivers, night after night – songs of passion, songs of insight, songs of humor, all rendered in that pure and powerful tenor which, like fine wine, has only grown sweeter with age.

May 29
(Friday): Barn Burner with the Sweetback Sisters click for details
The Sweetback Sisters, Emily Miller and Zara Bode, are a renegade retro band that mixes up country, swing and honky tonk using precise harmonies that will make you swoon. Voted by the SMAC staff as a top pick of the year, these gals are a true favorite! Come see why!

Barn Burners are held in the 200 year old Quisisana Barn....casual style show, bar stays open....less formal, but a listening environment. This series will showcase acts that might not be household names...yet! A small comfort food menu will be served on these nights, from 6:00 till showtime. Capacity is limited in the Quisisana Barn, so order your tickets ahead. Showtime is at 8:00.

November 5 (Thursday): Visions from Cape Breton and Beyond: A Celtic Family Celebration
with Natalie MacMaster and Donnell Leahy click for details
Don't wait till next year to get these tix...only one show! This is one of the top "feel good" shows you'll ever see. It's a family affair filled with amazing musicianship, a frenzy of step dancing, and a talented family sharing the stage. Comes highly SMAC recommended. This will be a quick sellout so get your tickets early!
