Thursday, July 7, 7pm - Karen Morgan SOLD OUT [LIVESTREAM, $10]
Comedian Karen Morgan helps people laugh at life. “Her humor is wildly funny and relatable.” (Michael Tobin, Footlights Theater). Born and raised in Athens, Georgia, Karen was enjoying a promising career as a trial attorney in Atlanta when she met her husband and ended up in Maine with 3 children under the 3. This insanity propelled her into a comedy career as a Finalist on Nickelodeon Television’s “Funniest Mom in America.” Since then, she has spent far more time approaching the mic than approaching the bench. Her clean shows have made her a favorite among theater audiences around the country. Karen can also be heard on Sirius XM Radio, and her second Dry Bar Comedy, “Rub Some Dirt On It,” will be released this summer.
“Comedy through the perceptive eye of a loving wife and mother, prepared with the tenacity of an attorney, and tempered with a dash of Southern Charm. Karen Morgan hits home for men and women alike.” -(Bill Taylor, NBC/WCSH)
Thursday, July 14, 7pm - Katie O'Connell SOLD OUT [LIVESTREAM, $10]
Katie is a singer, poet, yogi, and nature girl who is as happy to jam around a campfire as she is to be up on the stage. Katie grew up right here in little Sandwich, NH, singing her way through local musicals, at pubs in Ireland while living overseas, performing with the Lakes Region Music Festival, and recording and performing with her band The Starlight Honeys. Katie plays guitar, Irish penny whistle, and is known to bang on a hand drum, but her principal instrument has always been her voice, once described by a fan as "smooth dark chocolate," versatile enough to cover Joni Mitchell, Kate Wolf, Gillian Welch, and Bob Dylan all in one set, so come on out for an evening of your favorites. Katie will be joined with fellow Starlight Honeys buddy, Roger Sorlien.
Thursday, July 21, 7pm - Ellis Paul, with special guest Darryl Purpose SOLD OUT [LIVESTREAM, $10] CANCELED DUE TO COVID
ELLIS PAUL is a troubadour, a singer/songwriter, a folky, and a storyteller — all are fair labels for this artist, but they do not quite suffice. However, the tattoo of Woody Guthrie worn proudly on his arm is a good starting place from which to grasp Ellis Paul, for it is from the Woody Guthrie tradition that he hails, and Maine as well. Joni Mitchell, Bob Dylan, and James Taylor are also listed among his influences, and their spirits seem to occasionally grace his work. With an acoustic guitar in hand, he weaves intimate, provocative, and romantic tales of lives that were obviously witnessed by a most-talented voyeur.

Thursday, September 15, 7pm - Vance Gilbert SOLD OUT [LIVESTREAM, $10]
“If Joni Mitchell and Richie Havens had a love child, with Rodney Dangerfield as the midwife, the results might have been something close to the great Vance Gilbert.” As the above quote from Richmond Magazine suggests, Vance Gilbert defies stereotypes. It’s little wonder then that he also exceeds expectations. In this case, those two qualities go hand in hand.
