October 7: Long Time Courting
This Boston-based band is comprised of
four of the finest young artists in the Celtic
tradition: Shannon Heaton, flute; Sarah Blair,
fiddle; Liz Simpson, guitar; Valerie Thompson, cello; and all four on vocals. Traditional
Irish, Scottish and American tunes blend with
contemporary songs featuring rich, soaring
vocal arrangements, for performances reviewers praise as “seamlessly innovative, inventively arranged and skillfully rendered.”
In concert and on their new CD, instrumentals
feature precision and creativity, with cello
lines shifting from sinuous countermelody to
driving percussive rhythms under a powerful combination of fiddle and flute, anchored
by the guitar’s solid groove. Their voices are
variously described as “honeyed ... remarkably light yet powerful ... with winsome ease and genuine feeling.” Sound delightful? Come and help launch our
41st season with this wonderful group.

October 21, 2012: AcquAria
AcquAria is a Sicilian duo, drawing inspiration from
that celebrated island’s culture, people, history and
music. Michela Musolino and Vincenzo Castellana are
exceptionally talented young singers, capable of instantly
enchanting their audiences. Ms. Musolino has an exquisite
and powerful voice and is also a talented percussionist
in the Sicilian tradition. Mr. Castellana’s talents include
the ability to play unique instruments such as friscalettu
(Sicilian pennywhistle) and marranzanu (jaw harp), and
to create sounds of the surf by swirling rice grains in a
tambourine or blowing on a seashell. This duo will transport you as they sing of ill-fated lovers immortalized as
swordfish, or tragedies such as the deadly earthquake a
century ago. Tarantellas and songs of celebration will have you up and dancing in the aisles. As Michaela says,
“Sicilian music reflects the cycle of life, not in real time, but in humanity’s time.”

November 4: The Reunion Band
Known for their tight vocal harmonies and solid traditional
bluegrass sound, the Reunion Band features Boston-area
veterans Richard Brown (mandolin), Dave Dillon (rhythm
guitar), Margaret Gerteis (acoustic bass), and Richard Underwood (banjo), plus new member Laura Orshaw (fiddle).
Formed in 2002, the group’s core members have played together in various configurations for over thirty years. Lead
singer and rhythm guitarist Dave Dillon played with Don
Stover as well as the renowned Joe Val and the New England
Bluegrass Boys. Richard Brown, Monroe-style mandolinist
and lead/baritone, joined Dave in the Hudson Valley Boys
and the Stony Lonesome band. Rhythm bassist and high
tenor Margaret Gerteis also played with Dave and Richard
in the Stony Lonesome band, as well as with Apple Country, Hazel Dickens and others, and hard-driving banjo
picker Richard Underwood played with Maggie in the Hazel Dickens band. Meanwhile, young fiddler & singer
Laura Orshaw has been praised by far and wide for her “boundless energy ... and contagious joy.” Together, the
Reunion Band will blend their communal experience into a night of hot picking and sweet singing.

November 18: Roy Book Binder
Country blues troubadour Roy Book Binder is a singing, guitar picking, song writing, and storytelling phenomenon. For over three decades he has traveled through America in
his tour bus home, performing and teaching. In the early 1960s Roy
learned his craft from Piedmont blues masters such as Reverend Gary
Davis and Pink Anderson (the “Pink” in Pink Floyd). Before he died,
Anderson gave Roy his songs with a request to keep his name alive;
Roy has been obliging ever since. “The Book” has toured with such
greats as Bonnie Raitt, BB King, Sonny Terry & Brownie McGhee,
Jorma Kaukonen, Doc Watson, Ray Charles and Hot Tuna. He has
performed at festivals from the New Orleans Jazz and Heritage Festival
and the Chicago Blues Festival to The National Storytelling Festival
and Merlefest, where he hosted the acoustic blues stage for over a
decade. Reviewers have praised his classic blues sensibility, rugged
vocal style, fine fingerpicking and bottleneck guitar techniques, and
above all his mastery as an entertainer, weaving stories, humor and
music into an evening to remember.
