“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.



Katie O'Connell.jpg

THURSDAY, JUNE 15, 2023 / 7pm


Katie O'Connell has been a repeated sell out at Club Sandwich, so she's back again! 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, and maybe Sam Tracy - stay tuned!

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, JUNE 29, 2023 / 7pm


Peter Mulvey - Peter Mulvey is: Nineteen records, an illustrated book, thousands of live performances, a TEDx talk, a decades-long association with the National Youth Science Camp, opening for luminaries such as Ani DiFranco, Emmylou Harris, and Chuck Prophet, appearances on NPR, an annual autumn tour by bicycle, emceeing festivals, hosting his own boutique festival (the Lamplighter Sessions, in Boston and Wisconsin).

A sellout each time he's been here, Jon Stetson is not to be missed! Mind Reading has never been this much fun! Jon Stetson was the inspiration for the CBS hit television series “The Mentalist”. 

Stetson blends the art of Mystery with the study of Psychology, the predictability of human nature and the power of intuition, Imaginations are wowed, stretched and captured, as thoughts are revealed and minds are being read, with Jon's intriguing games of mind to mind contact. The Stetson Experience is intelligent, interactive, sophisticated fun. Along with hundreds of corporate, casino, and celebrity appearances, Jon has performed for five U.S. Presidents, The King of Sweden, The Royal Family of Monaco, and has appeared on several major Television Networks.

In 1957, teens Phil and Don Everly supercharged the vocal sound of Rock’n’Roll with “Bye Bye Love” and “Wake Up Little Susie”, unleashing the sparkling vocal harmonies that would influence The Beatles, Simon & Garfunkel, The Beach Boys, The Hollies, The Eagles, Peter Paul & Mary, and the Bee Gees. Now, six decades later, two acclaimed singer-songwriters with a mind-bending three-decade age difference combine millennial pluck with baby-boomer sass to present The Everly Set: Sean Altman & Jack Skuller Celebrate The Everly Brothers, featuring Bye Bye Love, Wake Up Little Susie, Cathy’s Clown, All I Have To Do Is Dream, When Will I Be Loved, Crying In The Rain, Love Hurts, Bird Dog, Claudette, Walk Right Back, and more hits and rarities in concert.


And, because John performed WITH The Everly Brothers, you may see John and The Everly Set do a little something together!




THURSDAY, JULY 20, 2023 / 7pm


Guy Davis is a two-time, back-to-back Grammy nominee for Best Traditional Blues, a musician, Actor, Author, and Songwriter. Guy uses a blend of Roots, Blues, Folk, Rock, Rap, Spoken Word, and World Music to comment on, and address the frustrations of social injustice, touching on historical events, and common life struggles. His background in theater is pronounced through the lyrical storytelling of songs “God’s Gonna Make Things Over” about the 1921 Tulsa Race Massacre, “Welcome to My World”, and “Got Your Letter In My Pocket”. His storytelling is sometimes painful, deep, and real, an earthy contrast to modern-day commercial music, meant to create thought, underlined by gentle tones from his guitar or banjo fingerpicking.

Jim Kweskin is the founder of the legendary 1960s Jim Kweskin Jug Band with Fritz Richmond, Geoff Muldaur, Maria Muldaur, Mel Lyman and Bruno Wolfe. During the five years they were together, they successfully transformed the sounds of pre-World War II rural music into a springboard for their good-humored performances. Their imitators were legion, including a San Francisco jug band that became the Grateful Dead, a Los Angeles jug band that became the Nitty Gritty Dirt Band, and a New York jug band that became the Lovin' Spoonful. No other group attained their unique blend of youthful energy and antiquarian expertise, tight musicianship, loose camaraderie, and infectious swing.

{This show will use our multimedia screen is a very unique and beautiful way!] Kerrville New Folk winner John John Brown is bringing giant comics, iconic photographs, and moving panoramas to the stage. Titled Songs, Stories, & Art- Lessons from Strangers, this original project weaves together storytelling songs and the visual arts in a live performance. Set outside of Grand Central Station in New York City, Brown takes the listener inside the unique lives of 14 characters, while strumming his guitar and singing beside a projected graphic story. Unfolding is an imaginative and colorful world revealing the idea that all people, strangers alike, have a story we can learn from.

“So well written that every song could be a short story, a treat for lovers of narrative-driven tales.” -Americana UK

The protagonists come from all walks of life; from an aging Vietnam Vet, to a trumpet playing orphan, a  married couple debating evolution, to a young man with mental illness wandering the aisles of Walmart. With his guitar in hand, Brown may have found a new way to sing a song. Above all, he stays rooted in the soil of a good story.

Karen was a sellout last year and we just had to have her back! 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)

Harvey Reid and Joyce Andersen have combined their talents to create one of the most potent duos in American acoustic music. Award-winning multi-instrumentalists, prolific creators, peerless troubadours, commanding singers and seasoned entertainers, the Maine couple draws from a deep and diverse repertoire of original, traditional and contemporary music. Mesmerizing harmonies, passionate collaborations, deep musicianship, good-natured humor, stories and stage interplay drawn from decades of touring make for an unforgettable and moving concert experience. Merging their voices with a wide array of acoustic and slide guitars, autoharps, violin, viola, banjos and mandolins, they jump effortlessly between moods, tempos, genres and eras of American music. Bluegrass legend Doc Watson was a big fan of their music. 

Acoustic Guitar magazine called Harvey Reid “…one of the true treasures of American acoustic music,” and one of his 32 recordings was selected in their list of Top 10 Folk CD’s of all time.
