Performance Calendar
       
Scheduled Performances for 2014:
July 31 (Thursday):Iris DeMent click for details
One of the most celebrated country-folk performers of her day, singer/songwriter Iris Dement has a voice that exists beyond time. The closing credit song in the remake movie "Tue Grit" gaine her new and well deserved fans, but also reminded old ones how emotional her voice is. It was the most moving part of the film, and it is her haunting style that takes you away to a time and a place when songs were sung without any extras...raw like the country they were born from. Iris will take you there.

August 1
( Friday): Stone Mountain LIVE Anniversary Show click for details

August 2
(Saturday): Bettye LaVette ... A Must See!!! click for details
Finally!!! She has been on my wish list for a long time. I know this is a long bio...but you need to know about this artist...and if there is one show you come see this summer come see Ms. LaVette: Two time Grammy nominee Bettye LaVette is no mere singer. Bettye is an interpreter of the highest order. Whether the song originated as country, rock, pop, or blues, when she gets through with it, it is pure R&B. She gets inside a song and shapes and twists it to convey all of the emotion that can be wrought from the lyric.

She was born Betty Jo Haskin on January 29,1946, in Muskegon, Michigan. Unlike many of her contemporaries, Bettye did not get her start in the church, but was weaned on the C&W and R&B records of the time that were playing on the juke box in her parent's living room. In 1962, at 16, she became Bettye LaVette. Her first single was "My Man--He’s a Loving Man" on Atlantic Records. The record charted #7 R&B and put her on her first national tour, with Ben E. King, Clyde McPhatter, and other Atlantic stars of the time. She worked alongside Charles "Honi" Coles, and Cab Calloway in the Toni Award winning Broadway musical, "Bubbling Brown Sugar" in the role of Sweet Georgia Brown. Her CD, A Woman Like Me won the W.C. Handy Award in 2004 for "Comeback Blues Album of the Year". She was given a prestigous Pioneer Award by The Rhythm & Blues Foundation. In 2005, she signed with ANTI- Records and released the critically acclaimed CD, I've Got MY Own Hell To Raise, consisting of songs that were written by women. 2007 brought her together with alt-rock group Drive-By Truckers for the Grammy nominated CD, The Scene of The Crime. She has received the Blues Music Award for “Best Contemporary Female Blues Singer”. She performed a critically acclaimed version of "Love Reign O'er Me" at The Kennedy Center Honors in a tribute to The Who. A critical favorite, the producers had her perform "A Change Is Gonna Come" with Jon Bon Jovi for President elect Barack Obama on HBO's telecast of the kick-off Inaugural Celebratory concert, We Are One. Her CD, Interpretations: The British Rock Songbook garnered a second Grammy nomination. In 2012 she released both a new album, Thankful N' Thoughtful, and her autobiography, A Woman Like Me, written with David Ritz. Bettye is one of very few of her contemporaries who were recording during the birth of soul music in the 60s and is still creating vital recordings today, as opposed to resting on past laurels and recreating sounds of the past. Come see one of those show you will boast about seeing.

August 7
(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.

A WEEKEND WITH WOLF!!!
Two great nights with legendary rocker, Peter Wolf
 
August 15 ( Friday): A Rockin Acoustic Evening with Peter Wolf (of J. Geils) details
Featuring Pete's stellar acoustic band featuring Duke Levine and Kevin Barry on guitars and Marty Ballou on bass.
This show maybe drum-less but not fun-less (sorry....for my lame prose). Peter has graced our stage many times with his killer band, and he is always rockin' and this show will be no exception. We have had his full band as well as the acoustic show. What's my favorite? I have to go with the acoustic show. What I love about this stripped down evening is that you can really hear just what a great singer Peter Wolf is. He is also a great story teller...stories of a competely fascinating life. There will be some cool treatments of some familiar songs from his solo albums and his hits. The thing about Peter Wolf is that he is always evolving, and creating. Unlike some rock icons who rest on the laurels of their chartstoppers, Pete is writing some of his best material of his career and performing shows that leave the audience asking when he will be back....well here's me tellin' ya....Pete with his stellar band, is just the summer show we need, and you will love :>) A quick sell out as always.

August 22
(Friday): Ruthie Foster click for details
Ruthie is mostly considered a blues singer, sometimes a folkie, and sometimes known for being a songwriter. But if you have seen her, you know her as one of the most soulful singers out there today no matter what she sings.. Her shows lift you up and her spirit will stay with you long after you have left our barn. A Grammy nominated artist with multiple awards to her resume, she is admire by many of her peers in the musical community. "I love Ruthie Foster. That's my little sister. A phenomenal woman, yes indeed. She's great."- Mavis Staples A seal of approval from Miss Mavis, would be enough for me....but if you need more assurance, come see the "phenomenal" Ruthie Foster. Comes Highly SMAC Recommended.

August 24
(Sunday): Nitty Gritty Dirt Band ... one show only! click for details

The iconic and profoundly influential Nitty Gritty Dirt Band, is often cited as a catalyst for an entire movement in Country Rock and American Roots Music. They are and will be Jeff Hanna, Jimmie Fadden, Bob Carpenter, and John McEuen. The band's successes include a cover version of Jerry Jeff Walker's "Mr. Bojangles". Albums include 1972's Will the Circle Be Unbroken, featuring such traditional country artists Mother Maybelle Carter, Earl Scruggs, Roy Acuff, Doc Watson, Merle Travis, and Jimmy Martin. A follow-up album based on the same concept, Will the Circle Be Unbroken: Volume Two was released in 1989, was certified gold and won two Grammy Awards and was named Album of the Year at the Country Music Association Awards. These albums made a big statement in the 70's and we will have to get our's signed when they come up the hill to play up close and personal! A quick sell out .

August 28
(Thursday): A Bluegrass Evening with Ricky Skaggs & Kentucky Thunder with special guests, The Gibson Brothers click for details
Legendary Ricky Skaggs and the bluegrass Entertainers of the Year the Gibson Brothers in one night!!! This is a bluegrass show not to miss.
Ricky Skaggs.....A life full of music. That's the story of mandolin wiz Ricky Skaggs. By age 21, he was already considered a "recognized master" of one of America's most demanding art forms, but his career took him in other directions, catapulting him to popularity and success in the mainstream of country music. 2012 marked the 53rd year since Ricky struck his first chords on a mandolin, and this fourteen–time Grammy Award winner continues to do his part to lead the recent roots revival in music. With 12 consecutive Grammy–nominated classics behind him "This group of guys meets my approval every night," Ricky says. "Each and every one of the pickers in Kentucky Thunder totally amazes me in every show." The all–star lineup of Kentucky Thunder makes this show a bluegrass experience unlike any other. Come see this legend up close and personal
Gibson Brothers . IBMA multiple award winner..."entertainers of the year, song of the year, Gospel Recorded Performance of the Year, Vocal Group of the Year, Songwriter of the Year ...and on and on....Oh, I love these guys!!! These young brothers of bluegrass, write really amazing songs, have beautiful voices and are great on stage. They are here as our friends and guests at Christmas time and always bring 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 and bluegrass music were not so defined. A personal favorite of mine....Come highly SMAC recommended.

September 12
( Friday): Asleep at the Wheel click for details
Woohoo Buckaroo...Ray Benson and the hardest workin' band in show biz is back for another night of country western swingin', toe tappin fun. They have won 9 grammy awards and there are no signs of slowing down. Keeping the music of Bob Wills and alike, alive and well in one of the best live shows money can buy. Don't miss it....we never do!!

September 14
(Sunday): Slaid Cleaves click for details
Hailing from Maine originally, this now Austin songwriter might as well have been born in the lone star state. He's got the Austin style songwriting reminiscent of Joe Ely or Townes Van Zandt, but a style and sound all his own. He is simply one of my favorite songwriters, and why he is not a household word is beyond me. Great songs, great voice, great stories and handsome as all get out. If you are a fan from Maine, you will remember his old band the Moxie Men.....many towns and years later he still comes highly SMAC recommended.

September 18
( Thursday): Bela Fleck and Abigail Washburn (one show only!) details
The unofficial first family of the banjo. We have had Bela here many times in many forms. His last visit was with his Banjo Summit and included in that elite group of banjo virtuosos was Bela's wife Abigail Washburn. She and Bela playing together was the highlight of the night. Her voice moved us all, and their obvious connection from the heart spills into their musical connection for a "you don't dare move" listening experience. Bela has toiled most of what is available in musical soil ..a 15 time grammy award winner, he has graced our stage and many others with countless other musical giants being a master of producing interesting collaboration. Abigail is one of old time music's fav's with her own unique approach to American of old-time music, pairing venerable folk elements with far-flung sounds to create a music that is both strangely familiar and unlike anything heard before. Together they will do original and traditional tunes in their own special way in this intimate style appearance. Folks, all I can say is this is a rare show that we really begged for...come see why :>)

September 21
( Sunday): Sam Bush click for details
Finally!.....we have tried for 7 years to get him!!! Grammy Award winning multi-instrumentalist Sam Bush doesn't seem old enough to be a musical legend, but that is just what he is. Considered the originator of the Newgrass style, he is "the" mandolin player of out generation. Bush has helped to expand the horizons of bluegrass music, fusing it with jazz, rock, blues, funk and other styles. He's the co-founder of the genre-bending New Grass Revival and an in-demand musician who has played with everyone from Emmylou Harris and Bela Fleck to Charlie Haden, Lyle Lovett and Garth Brooks. And though Bush is best known for jaw-dropping skills on the mandolin, he is also a three time national junior fiddle champion and Grammy award winning vocalist. In his own words: "As long as I'm alive I hope I have the ability to play," says Bush, a two time cancer treatment survivor. When the ability to play is taken away, it's humbling. It teaches you a lesson: don't take it for granted. Here's to the next 30 years." And here's to you Sam...and we are honored to be part of the next thirty! p.s And always with a killer band! A quick sell out.

September 26
( Friday): An Evening with John Hiatt Solo and Acoustic click for details
One of out times' greatest song writers and SMAC's favorite performers!
John Hiatt, who the Los Angeles Times calls “…one of rock’s most astute singer-songwriters of the last 40 years,” will release his new album Terms Of My Surrender, inb July via New West Records. Hiatt, a master lyricist and satirical storyteller, weaves hidden plot twists into fictional tales ranging in topics including redemption, relationships, growing older and surrendering, on his terms. The new record is musically rooted in acoustic blues, accentuated by Hiatt’s soulful, gritty voice, which mirrors the gravity of his reflective lyrics. Always a special show when he is here...up close and personal.

October 3
( Friday): Dar Williams click for details
It's been too long since we have had Dar back. She is the cream of the singer songwriter's crop. Rolling Stone wrote of her, "Seasons change, but Williams remains both ambitious and pleasingly plain-spoken... And importantly, she seems more at ease than ever." At the core of Williams’ work is a belief in the innate ability of people to make a better world, the product of countless observations in her travels and conversations with her fans. She writes about it, sings about it and will make you feel good about it. She is a delight on stage and we are delighted to have her back!

October 10
(Friday): Gaelic Storm click for details
They were barely a band when they were spotted by the folks from the blockbuster movie Titantic. Their raucous dance scene catapulted them into a serious global touring schedule and off they went. Today they are one of the most sought after celtic bands in the world. Their high energy show is just about the funniest two hours we present here at SMAC.They could not be more down to earth, and hard working while still maintaining their star status. Just good Irish folk. Their newest album.....With their signature acoustic production, Gaelic Storm blends indie-folk and world grooves with Celtic tradition to bring you twelve tales of plight and plunder, whiskey-drenched pirates, flying cannon balls and the ladies of ill repute. Ready your sea legs; you'll need them for The Boathouse!

October 16
(Thursday): Arlo Guthrie click for details

Yes, the man who put the folk in folk music is coming to our little barn. His legendary heritage included father Woody Guthrie, and like him, Arlo is a treasured contributor to Americana and it's music. His story telling is as captivating as his music. Mr. Guthrie is most famous for the Thanksgiving anthem, Alice's Restaurant... now you don't have to be in a turkey come to hear it!

October 17
(Friday): Heather Masse with Mike and Ruthy click for details
Two great acts. Heather one of the sirens from the Wailin Jennys and a local girl before stardom, she can be heard regularly on Prairie Home Companion...one of Garrison's favorites. Just a beautiful voice and spirit, singing many styles from folk to jazz. Mike Merenda and Ruthy Ungar, cutting their musical teeth as part of the Mammals, now are a terrific duo on their own. Ruthie comes from Americana royalty being the daughter of fiddler Jay Ungar, They have been referred to as carrying the torch for the likes of Woodie Guthrie and the Carter family, but their indie roots is completely original.

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 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.

All strong song writers and singers...all multi instrumentalists....it should be a great night of collaboration. And not to play favorites but these three are ours : >) Come see why. Highly SMAC Recommended!

November 21
( Friday): SMACFest - Three Bands One Night click for details
Darlingside, The Ballroom Thieves and The Ghost of Paul Revere

The Ballroom Thieves: New England based High engery folk rock trio, lush vocals
The Ghost of Paul Revere: mix a litle old timey folk music and bluegrass with dead-on three part harmonies and a wicked energetic performance. Cause they're from Maine ya know!!

November 29
(Saturday): Chris Smither & Band click for details
Having distilled his own signature sound of blues and folk for over 40 years, Chris Smither is one of the best to ever hit our stage. With profound songs, dazzling guitar skills and his distinct gravelly voice he casts a spell over the audience one song at a time. His latest album Hundred Dollar Valentine is a studio record of all Smither-penned songs — a first for him. With longtime producer David “Goody” Goodrich at the helm, this newest collection sports the unmistakable sound Smither has made his trademark: fingerpicked acoustic guitar and evocative sonic textures meshed with spare, brilliant songs, delivered in a bone-wise, hard-won voice. Says the Chicago Sun Times - "Chris Smither has traveled countless miles with his careworn blend of folk and acoustic blues. His hallmarks include the fingers of an effortless musician, a voice as craggy and deep as the earth, the soul of a philosopher and master poet, and the foot-tapping percussion of a restless wanderer…" Couldn't have said it better myself.

December 6

Scheduled Performances for 2015:
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.

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.
