Rusty Dewees - The Logger
Saturday, April 21, 2018
Part comedian, part musician, all Vermont with a side of cussin to entertain everyone… almost. The Boston Globe says, The Logger is, “Inventive, entertaining, exceptional”. Rusty was raised in Stowe, and lives up the road in Elmore. He has worked in every entertainment medium including 30 films and television shows. He’s toured New England 21 years in The Logger, his original one man comedy show. The show is a hilarious combination of stand-up, and theatre show that also incorporates plenty tight pin-point funny ad libs, and a great set of country kickin music with Rusty on guitar and vocals.

Tickets are $25 and available in Jamaica at D&K, North Country General and up the road at Meulemans’ Craft Draughts. Doors open at 6pm with the show beginning at 7pm. Seating is limited.

Strangled Darlings

Tough Old Bird

Portland’s Strangled Darlings bring punk intensity to folk pop and completely bust the mold, creating smart, irreverent tunes using classic acoustic folk instrumentation paired with rough, impassioned vocals. Think of it rather like the Clash with an indie Northwestern American aesthetic.-- Popmatters, May 2012
Fillmore, NY's Tough Old Bird songwriting brothers who play modern folk music with intricate acoustic guitar work that reflects the landscape in comes from.
Raffle: Yankee Candle gift bag from Green Mountain Pharmacy Londonderry, VT

Adam Brockway
Saturday, September 29, 2018
It's been a long time coming! Adam will be out promoting his debut solo album that was funded by a Kickstarter campaign.
As many of you know, he has been playing, singing and writing songs with Eastbound Jesus for the last 7 years. Throughout that time, and in years prior he has written a number of songs that, for one reason or another (or maybe no particular reason at all), never made it into the EBJ repertoire. He has decided to take some of those songs and put them on a disc for everyone to listen to.

Thanks to WEQX for getting the word out about this great opportunity to support a local artist on the rise.
Know of another local artist doing a Kickstarter campaign?
