    - "“one of acoustic America’s most revered musical duos” (Folk Alley) – have re-emerged with an ace ensemble and will release their stunning new album Bright As You Can via Humble Abode Music/Thirty Tigers on June 2nd as The Mike + Ruthy Band. Surrounded by friends and family, Mike Merenda and Ruthy Ungar are forging their own take on Americana, not just musically, but in their non-traditional approach to life and parenthood which has informed the songwriting and emotional range of Bright As You Can. The album is in many ways a heartfelt musical expression of Merenda and Ungar’s life and adventures together. Pulling from Motown, bluegrass, rock, folk and more, the album features impeccably crafted songs, gorgeous harmonies and inspired performances. The Mike + Ruthy Band move comfortably from rollicking rock to spare acoustic balladry to classic R&B-influenced rave ups. "" In the vanguard of today's vibrant folk revival."" - PopMatters

    ""The 14-song collection spans folk, bluegrass, vintage country and just about everything else that falls under the catch-all heading of 'Americana.'” - Wall Street Journal

    ""This is a record about what it is to be human. It's a record about what it is to have an inextricable allegiance to tradition, while feeling compelled to speak for onesself. It's a record that will grab you, that won't let you go.” - No Depression

    “Bright As You Can seems to be honoring the great musical traditions of the past while at the same time welcoming, with open arms, the future of what music can be.” - Folk Alley

    ""It’s that ability to go beyond the boundaries that allow The Mike + Ruthy Band to temper their folk finesse and do so with such skill, they’re actually able to set themselves apart."" - Elmore Magazine

    “These two will shatter any stereotypical misconceptions of what it means to be a folk musician.” - The Coastal Journal "

    - "Kenny Selcer Band - Kenny, Liz Buchanan, Phil Punch and Steve Gilligan - plays a sizzling blend of Americana, folk, rock, roots, reggae, and everything in between, that will get your toes tappin', your head noddin' up and down, your mouth singin', your brain thinkin' and maybe even get you dancin' in the aisles!""

    “Lisa Martin: ""Melodic and catchy."" (Mark Erelli) ""She has a knack for wringing out all the passion that can possibly fit into a 3-minute song."" (Springfield Republican) Bridging the elements of folk, rock, country and blues, Martin's music ""has an intense back beat rarely found within the folk genre"" (Motif Magazine). ""Few of her acoustic cohorts can rock out like she does."" (Worcester Phoenix)"

    - Geoff is an acoustic folk/blues guitar player, singer/songwriter, harmonica player and recording artist. In the 1980s, he won four guitars at the National Fingerpicking Championships in Winfield, Kansas. My last two CDs went to No.1 on Folk Radio. and more recently, released his fifteenth full-length CD in December, 2014. Geoff often plays with Tom Paxton, whose title track of his new album, Redemption Road, put words to a tune by Geoff. He is a long time host of weekly open mics at the Cantab Lounge in Cambridge, MA, and a recipient of the Boston Area Coffeehouse Association's Lifetime Achievement Award. A world-class guitarist, a brilliant songwriter and the prophet and spiritual godfather of the Boston folk scene. http://www.geoffbartley.com. Frank Sugrue is about intelligent songwriting. He searches out the sweet spot between message and a delivery. His songs cover a spectrum of blues, folk and contemporary acoustic. From a background that started in traditional folk, Frank reaches toward the edges of acoustic guitar with first rate fingerpicking and a powerful strumming style. He's a natural storyteller, balancing the exuberant with the poignant, and able to distill universal truth out of his often romantic, drawn-from-life tales. "Frank Sugrue has a gift for embracing his powerful, compelling stories with exquisite melodies and tasteful arrangements. You’ll be moved by his message and enjoy the entire ride on “Edge” - Lori Diamond, Singer-Songwriter

    - Boston native Will Dailey is a three-time winner of Boston Music Awards, and his 2015 CD, National Throat, has already won Album of the Year from Improper Bostonian. “Soul, rock, great songs, great hooks and lyrics, plus the guy is just rocks on guitar… The man is simply put, a powerhouse.” Cattaneo has been a songwriting professor at Boston’s prestigious Berklee College of Music for 13 years. You’ll hear a blend of country, rock and soul with sparkles of blues and folk – music that would slide into the comfort zone for fans of Bonnie Raitt, Emmylou Harris, Mary Chapin Carpenter or Sheryl Crow. Her album Little Big Sky was nominated for Best Country Album for the 13th Independent Music Awards. The music she’s pursuing now is going down a darker, more brooding path. If she had to pick a genre, she’d call it Americana, in the broadest definition of the term: music that encompasses all the genres of the great American tradition: country, blues and folk.
