STONE MOUNTAIN GETAWAYS WITH THE INN AT CRYSTAL LAKE ®

We are very happy and honored to say that we are the only lodging property that has been partnering with the Stone Mountain Arts Center since they opened in 2006... Happy 11th Anniversary Stone Mountain Arts Center!

And if there's any doubt to what a fantastic venue this is, check out this from Travel + Leisure: America's Coolest Music Venues!
 

"Up Close and Personal"

Stay at the Inn at Crystal Lake in the beautiful town of Eaton, New Hampshire where just over the Maine state border in the town of Brownfield is the Stone Mountain Arts Center (or "SMAC" as it has become known). Enjoy all the comforts of our cozy country inn complete with our own dining room and pub. Relax and have an intimate dinner before the show... we will definitely all take good care of you!

Package prices are based on double occupancy (single and multiple person packages are available - please inquire).

Some weekend packages have a two night minimum and are noted below. Some SMAC packages may be combined with our other lodging packages. Please inquire.

Packages include two priority tickets (no need to call the Arts Center), dinner at the inn, gratuity for dinner, breakfast and a shuttle to and from the show in our SMACVIP van (tax, beverages and any additional gratuity are not included).

PACKAGES INCLUDE **PREMIER SEATING** AT THE ARTS CENTER! You will be treated as our special guests with a fantastic table near the front - the Arts Center will get you as close to the stage as possible! (*Barn Burners are a "club style" show and tickets are general admission - although seats will be saved especially for our guests!)

Just make one phone call to 1-603-447-2120 to reserve your complete getaway!

Unless otherwise noted, concerts begin promptly at 8pm. Dinners at the inn are around 5pm and the shuttle leaves around 7pm.

We require a two-thirds deposit on any major credit card with the remainder due upon arrival. Because of the popularity of these concerts and the limited number of priority tickets, the Arts Center requires that we purchase the priority tickets up front and therefore any deposits on Getaway Packages are non-refundable. We treat these packages as you would when you purchase tickets to any other type of concert.

NOTE: SMAC packages are priced for two people in one of our standard rooms (queen bed). If available, you can upgrade to our Canopy or King Room for an additional $20 for our large two room suite for an additional $40.

IMPORTANT NOTE ABOUT THE ARTS CENTER: On the nights of performances the Arts Center does not take credit cardsonly cash. Tickets, lodging, dinner, etc. are all handled through the Inn, but if you’d like beverages or merchandise while you’re at the performance, you must bring cash with you.

2017 SCHEDULE OF STONE MOUNTAIN ARTS CENTER GETAWAY PACKAGES ®

May 27 (Saturday): Tom Snow Quartet click for the artist's website

Call 1-603-447-2120 to book this package
OR CLICK TO RESERVE NOW!

Maine’s own pianist Tom Snow returns to SMAC as a leader, and this time he’s bringing a few of his friends from the world of Jazz. SMAC audiences have heard Tom many times as Jonathan Edwards’ pianist, and you may have also attended SMAC’s sold-out 2013 CD release concert of his fourth CD, “Friends.”  On this night, Tom is sharing the stage with jazz giant and NYC-based virtuoso clarinetist, Ken Peplowski, acclaimed bassist, Marshall Wood (bassist for Tony Bennett), and stalwart favorite and Boston “A-lister”, Les Harris, Jr. (drums).  If you’ve ever heard Tom perform, you’ll know that he is a musical chameleon and often cross-weaves styles of folk, bluegrass, rock and jazz.  Accompanied by this stellar lineup of world-renowned musicians, the sweet sounds of jazz will fill the air at Stone Mountain.

Package includes: One nights lodging in a standard room with a full country breakfast the next morning, dinner at the Inn before the show (gratuity for dinner is included, but alcohol and additional gratuity is not), a SMACVIP shuttle to and from the show and two priority tickets with premier seating to the show. $435

May 28 (Sunday): Chris Thomas King click for the artist's website

Call 1-603-447-2120 to book this package
OR CLICK TO RESERVE NOW!

Louisiana born Multi-talented Grammy Award-winning blues artist, producer, composer and actor Chris Thomas King was thrust into the spotlight as the young blues singer from "O Brother Where Art Thou", but Chris is so much more. He has stretched the boundaries of all his favored genres from Jazz to Hip Hop. New Orleans born, his roots are in the delta blues, but he is considered a contemporary blues man, who not only preserves the tradition of the blues and its African American roots, but also the originality of its influence on the  music of today. Here is a more recent version of that song that we all loved from O Brother:

June 2 (Friday): Lonely Heart String Band click for the artists' website

Call 1-603-447-2120 to book this package
OR CLICK TO RESERVE NOW!

Nourished by deep roots in the expansive canon of traditional American music, The Lonely Heartstring Band embodies the modern American condition - an understanding and reverence for the past that informs a push into the future. This multi-talented group of musicians is a Bluegrass quintet insofar as they’re far greater than the sum of its parts, but unlike a traditional Bluegrass band, their music stretches far beyond any genre-specific title. Combining soulful instrumental virtuosity with soaring three-part harmonies, their growing repertoire of original songs and compositions showcases not only their considerable talents, but a dedication to meaningful roots-conscious music. Since their beginnings in 2012, The Lonely Heartstring Band has been on the rise and shows no sign of slowing down. With their 2015 IBMA Momentum Award and the imminent release of their debut full-length album on the legendary Rounder Records label, there is every reason to believe that they are at the front edge of a significant career. Already they have generated a devoted following of music-lovers across North America, performing and headlining at major music festivals and historic venues from Western Canada to California, from Kentucky to New Hampshire. Whether it’s a festival stage, theatre, or intimate listening room, The Lonely Heartstring Band always delivers a dynamic, diverse, and heartfelt performance. Over the last three years of touring, the band has crafted shows that generate a genuine connection and bring crowds to their feet. SMAC will be no exception!

Package includes: One nights lodging in a standard room with a full country breakfast the next morning, dinner at the Inn before the show (gratuity for dinner is included, but alcohol and additional gratuity is not), a SMACVIP shuttle to and from the show and two priority tickets with premier seating to the show. $435

June 9 (Friday): Cheryl Wheeler & Kenny White click for the artists' websites

Call 1-603-447-2120 to book this package
OR CLICK TO RESERVE NOW!

Cheryl Wheeler Critic Scott Alarik said it best: " It has always seemed as if there were two Cheryl Wheelers, with fans of the New England songwriter relishing watching the two tussle for control of the mic. There is poet-Cheryl, writer of some of the prettiest, most alluring and intelligent ballads on the modern folk scene. And there is her evil twin, comic-Cheryl, a trend defier and savagely funny social critic. The result is a delightful contrast between poet and comic" And we love both those Cheryls! She is not afraid to speak her mind about politics, religion any any other issues in the national debate!  She is always a delight... even more so when her pal Kenny is with her...

Kenny White is a relative newcomer to the world of the touring singer-songwriter
Kenny began his career in the 1970s touring extensively as the keyboard player for Jonathan Edwards and Livingston Taylor. He then became a fixture in the NY studio scene throughout the 1990s, producing and arranging literally hundreds of commercials for TV and radio. Commercials enabled him to work with artists like Gladys Knight, Linda Ronstadt, Ricky Skaggs, Aaron Neville and even the London Symphony Orchestra.  He produced Shawn Colvin’s Grammy-nominated song, “I Don’t Know Why” and performed on Marc Cohn’s platinum debut record. He began traveling with and opening shows for many of his friends and colleagues including Cheryl Wheeler, Jonathan Edwards, and Richard Shindell.  Kenny often travels with Judy Collins as her opening act throughout North America and Europe and is signed to her label. Kenny is a classic piano man, and if you have not heard him, you have to!!

Package includes: One nights lodging in a standard room with a full country breakfast the next morning, dinner at the Inn before the show (gratuity for dinner is included, but alcohol and additional gratuity is not), a SMACVIP shuttle to and from the show and two priority tickets with premier seating to the show. $445

June 10 (Saturday): David Bromberg Quartet click for the artists' website

Sorry... sold out!

For Americana godfather David Bromberg, he can do it all... Jazz, Blues, Folk, Fusion... an icon of it all!! His incredible journey spans five-and-a-half decades, and includes adventures with Bob Dylan, George Harrison, Jerry Garcia, and music and life lessons from seminal blues guitarist Reverend Gary Davis, who claimed the young Bromberg as a son. A musician’s musician, Bromberg’s mastery of several stringed instruments (guitar, fiddle, Dobro, mandolin), and multiple styles is legendary, leading Dr. John to declare him an American icon. In producing John Hartford’s hugely influential Aereo-Plain LP, Bromberg even co-invented a genre: Newgrass. Now, with The Blues, the Whole Blues, and Nothing But the Blues, his first release for Red House Records, Bromberg and multi-Grammy-winning producer/accompanist Larry Campbell (Dylan, Levon Helm, Paul Simon) focus on the music David discovered in high school, his evident love for the blues. Although he remains the proprietor of the beloved David Bromberg Fine Violins in Wilmington, Delaware, Bromberg makes time to tour with his quintet... and SMAC is lucky to catch them this time around!

Package includes: One nights lodging in a standard room with a full country breakfast the next morning, dinner at the Inn before the show (gratuity for dinner is included, but alcohol and additional gratuity is not), a SMACVIP shuttle to and from the show and two priority tickets with premier seating to the show. $495

June 16 (Friday): The Suitcase Junket click for the artist's website

Call 1-603-447-2120 to book this package
OR CLICK TO RESERVE NOW!

He was at SMAC as part of their free music series and blew everyone away. One man band, doesn't do this artist justice... Suitcase is an Artist, tinkerer, tunesmith, swamp Yankee, Matt Lorenz is a one-man salvage specialist singing into the hollow of a Dumpster guitar, slipping a broken bottleneck onto the slide finger, railing on a box of twisted forks and bones, rocking till every sound is ragged at its edges, till the house is singing back. Then, unplugging all the amps and letting one mountain ballad soar over the raw strings on that guitar. Every night is a hard-driving, blues-grinding, throat-singing search-and-rescue junket. Sooner or later everything rusts, busts, and gets tossed into the junk heap: iron, bones, leather, hot rods, muskrats, the night, the heart. The goal is to recover it. To waste nothing. To create new ways from old. This is The Suitcase Junket.

Package includes: One nights lodging in a standard room with a full country breakfast the next morning, dinner at the Inn before the show (gratuity for dinner is included, but alcohol and additional gratuity is not), a SMACVIP shuttle to and from the show and two priority tickets with premier seating to the show. $435

June 17 (Saturday): Stone Mountain Song Stage with Bill Kirchen, Sean McCann & Jimmy Ryan click links for the artists' websites

Call 1-603-447-2120 to book this package
OR CLICK TO RESERVE NOW!

Hosted by Carol Noonan and friends, "Song Stage" is a great night of song swapping and collaboration. Artists are on stage together all night like a songwriter round up Bluebird Cafe style. Lots of great music and banter, and a unique glimpse into these artists through their music and stories. But its the interactions and spontaneous moments with each other that can't be duplicated... so don't miss it! This is SMAC at its best.

About Bill: Bill Kirchen is like SMAC's favorite Uncle. You hardcore Commander Cody fans will know him as the the guy who made Hot Rod Lincoln famous. Kirchen is reported to be one of the musicians that pioneered the Americana radio format and is a founding father of the "twangcore movement" which includes Dave Alvin, Wilco and Big Sandy & His Fly-Rite Boys. Kirchen's signature sound has been dubbed "dieselbilly" and incorporates elements of country music, blues, rockabilly, Western swing and boogie-woogie, laced with themes of American truck driving music. These days his songwriting could not be more vital. Here he is, earning his paycheck above and beyond:

About Sean: It's not easy to leave a sure thing... but Sean McCann has started a new journey after his departure from the popular Canadian band Great Big Sea. Someone referred to him as a "shantyman", but he's a true folkie at heart. Great songs, and great voice is the new "great" in his future and SMAC is happy to be on this trip with him.  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cGLxEktfbbY

About Jimmy: "Jimmy Ryan is one of those names woven into the fabric of Americana music. He's not atop the marquee, mind you, a la Lucinda Williams or Buddy Miller, but his contributions are considerable. He's perhaps best-known as one of the principals in alt-country precursors the Blood Oranges..." These days he can be seen in various groups like Session Americana or any other artist that gets to have him as a side man.

Package includes: One nights lodging in a standard room with a full country breakfast the next morning, dinner at the Inn before the show (gratuity for dinner is included, but alcohol and additional gratuity is not), a SMACVIP shuttle to and from the show and two priority tickets with premier seating to the show. $475

June 18 (Sunday): Marty Stuart & His Fabulous Superlatives click for the artists' website

Call 1-603-447-2120 to book this package

OR CLICK TO RESERVE NOW!

Marty is the consummate performer... mixing a blend of Bluegrass, old time Country, and his own brand of traditional style originals. The band is crazy good: Kenny Vaughan, Harry Stinson on drums, and Paul Martin on bass. Their playing is top notch, but their live vocals steal the show. That live thrill on stage and on records has also been seen regularly by TV viewers on RFD-TV's The Marty Stuart Show. Marty has played with everyone from Johnny Cash, Travis Tritt, and Dolly Parton to Bela Fleck... he is a musicians' musician, but for this night SMAC calls him their own. He often graces SMAC with two shows, but this summer they can only get him for one night... so book your package soon!

Package includes: One nights lodging in a standard room with a full country breakfast the next morning, dinner at the Inn before the show (gratuity for dinner is included, but alcohol and additional gratuity is not), a SMACVIP shuttle to and from the show and two priority tickets with premier seating to the show. $620

June 20 (Tuesday): Richard Thompson click for the artist's website

Call 1-603-447-2120 to book this package

OR CLICK TO RESERVE NOW!

His songwriting can paint a picture like no other story teller in his genre... not that he really fits into one... he is a genre all of his own. Whether with Fairport Conventiuon, Sandy Denny, Linda Thompson, or this last decade as a soloist, he continues to forge ahead with new music, sounds, and ideas. But don't worry, his shows are full of what made you a fan in the first place too. Don't miss it... always a quick sell out!

Package includes: One nights lodging in a standard room with a full country breakfast the next morning, dinner at the Inn before the show (gratuity for dinner is included, but alcohol and additional gratuity is not), a SMACVIP shuttle to and from the show and two priority tickets with premier seating to the show. $545

June 25 (Sunday): Dave & Phil Alvin & The Guilty Ones click for the artists' website

Call 1-603-447-2120 to book this package
OR CLICK TO RESERVE NOW!

The Alvin brothers founded seminal early LA punk roots band The Blasters in 1979, and after Dave left the group in 1986, they did not record an album together again until "Common Ground". If their Grammy-nominated 2014 album "Common Ground" was the sound of a partnership rekindled, "Lost Time" is a four-alarm fire. Dave’s guitar work slithers and stings as never before, and Phil’s feral howl cuts to the core. Over "Lost Time's" twelve tracks, Dave and Phil pay homage to a number of artists and songs
that had an early, formative influence, in Dave’s words “the masters of the Blues, the most transcendental form of American music.

Check out a video of them:

June 30 (Friday): Ellis Paul click for the artist's website

Call 1-603-447-2120 to book this package
OR CLICK TO RESERVE NOW!

Ellis Paul is one of the leading voices in American songwriting. He was a principle leader in the wave of singer/songwriters that emerged from the Boston folk scene, creating a movement that revitalized the national acoustic circuit with an urban, literate, folk pop style that helped renew interest in the genre in the 1990's. Paul remains the most mainstream-friendly folk songwriter to emerge from Boston since Tom Rush. Between 1993 and 2004, he won an unprecedented 13 Boston Music Awards, and his songs were heard on hit TV shows Ed and MTV's Real World; and in the soundtracks of several Farrelly Brothers films, including "Me, Myself, & Irene," and "Shallow Hal," Director Peter Farrelly has called Paul "a national treasure" (a very cool stamp of approval!).

Package includes: Two nights lodging (Friday/Saturday) in a standard room with a full country breakfast each next morning, dinner at the Inn before the show (gratuity for dinner is included, but alcohol and additional gratuity is not), a SMACVIP shuttle to and from the show and two priority tickets with premier seating to the show. $585

July 1 (Saturday): John Gorka click for the artist's website

Call 1-603-447-2120 to book this package
OR CLICK TO RESERVE NOW!

John Gorka is an honored icon of the Folk tradition. Energetic acoustic music that is not a trend, not a fad, but an expression of everyday life, is his trademark. John's rich baritone voice and unique song craft weave a magical spell that can only be described as 'Gorka.' "Gorka is widely heralded for the sophisticated intelligence and provocative originality of his songs." SMAC owner, Carol Noonan, says "the most important thing that sets John apart from the pack is his sincerity. He is one of the most sincere performers I know."

Package includes: Two nights lodging (Friday/Saturday) in a standard room with a full country breakfast each next morning, dinner at the Inn before the show (gratuity for dinner is included, but alcohol and additional gratuity is not), a SMACVIP shuttle to and from the show and two priority tickets with premier seating to the show. $675

She's back again... SMAC's favorite funny girl. An NPR darling, heard on Wait Wait Don't Tell Me, Paula has been making SMAC laugh almost every year since they opened. From her comedy specials, to her live shows, she is hysterical, witty, and her improv with the crowd is the highlight of the evening. A quick sell out every time, so book your package early!

OR CLICK TO RESERVE NOW!

Barefoot and tanned, Jonathan Edwards has never looked and sounded better. Of course he is known for his big hits, like "Sunshine" and "Shanty", but his music is as fresh now as when those tunes made him famous. Four decades into a stellar career of uncompromising musical integrity, the man simply delivers, night after night - songs of passion, songs of insight, songs of humor, all rendered in that pure and powerful tenor which, like fine wine, has only grown sweeter with age. Always a sellout and you'll never know who he might bring with him!!

Package includes: One nights lodging in a standard room with a full country breakfast the next morning, dinner at the Inn before the show (gratuity for dinner is included, but alcohol and additional gratuity is not), a SMACVIP shuttle to and from the show and two priority tickets with premier seating to the show. $465

SMAC is honored once again to present this beautiful icon of folk music to their humble hall on the hill. Judy's songs are historic and her rendition of Joni Mitchell's "Both Sides Now" on her classic 1967 album, Wildflowers. "Both Sides Now" has since been entered into the Grammy's Hall of Fame. Winning "Song of the Year" at the 1975 Grammy's Awards show was Judy's version of "Send in the Clowns," a song that no one has been able to touch since. An Evening with Judy Collins... how special. And she tells the best stories, too!

Package includes: Two nights lodging (Fri/Sat or Sat/Sun) in a standard room with a full country breakfast each morning, dinner at the Inn before the show (gratuity for dinner is included, but alcohol and additional gratuity is not), a SMACVIP shuttle to and from the show and two priority tickets with premier seating to the show. $775

Wow... what hasn't happened to Miss Lori this year? Before the new year, she became one of only five solo women to win the CMA award for "Song of the Year" and the first woman to win two years in a row. In 2017, she became the first woman in the 52 year history of the ACM Awards to win "Songwriter of the Year". In 2017 she again won Best Country Song at the 59th Annual Grammy Awards for "Humble and Kind" performed by Tim McGraw (a great way to describer her by the way !) Lori will perform with him in arenas this summer, but for this night she will come to SMAC's humble hall once again... the sweetest singer songwriter you are ever going to meet! She is critically acclaimed for her work as a song writer, and heavy hitters like country star Faith Hill have recorded a pile of her songs. Faith is great, but no one sings Lori's songs like Lori. Always has some top players with her... come see why SMAC loves her!

Marshall Crenshaw
Over the course of a career that's spanned nearly four decades, thirteen albums, Grammy and Golden Globe nominations, film and TV appearances (Buddy Holly in "La Bamba") and thousands of performances, Crenshaw's musical output has maintained a consistent fidelity to the qualities of artfulness, craftsmanship and passion, and his efforts have been rewarded with the devotion of a broad and remarkably loyal fan base. A musician's musician.
Los Straitjackets
They are the leading practitioners of the lost art of the guitar instrumental. Using the music of The Ventures, The Shadows, Link Wray and Dick Dale as a jumping off point, the band has taken their unique, high energy brand of original rock & roll around the world. Clad in their trademark Lucha Libre Mexican wrestling masks, the “Jackets” have delivered their trademark guitar licks to 16 albums, thousands of concerts and dozens of films and TV shows. Oh, and for this show there will be an emphasis on the great tunes of another favorite, Nick Lowe!

Lydia and Laura Rogers are recognizable as sisters the minute they open their mouths. They float, twist and trade harmonies in ways only siblings can. Hailing from small-town Alabama, the pair started practicing parts as girls in church, and two decades later, their music can be hymn-like: plain but powerful, heartsick and hopeful. They also throw back to secular songs: those of the Everly Brothers, bluegrass creator Bill Monroe and country godfather Hank Williams. In fact, all but two songs on The Secret Sisters' first (self-titled) album were covers of traditionals or traditional country songs. Later albums would show their own songwrting talents, a little darker but still as sweet. Their latest project will be a new record, produced by Brandi Carlile and the Twins. If that is not a seal of approval, we don't know what is! Check them out for yourself on YouTube.

September 1 (Friday):  Bruce Hornsby click for the artist's website

Sorry... SOLD OUT!


A special show with Bruce and his amazing Noisemaker drummer, Sonny Emory
Bruce Hornsby’s work displays a creative iconoclasm that’s been a constant in the artist’s two-and-a-half decade recording career. His commercial stock soared early on, when “The Way It Is”–the title track of his 1986 debut album–became one of the most popular songs on American radio. Despite his early mainstream successes, Hornsby has pursued a more personal, idiosyncratic musical path, focusing on projects that sparked his creative interest, including collaborations with the Grateful Dead, Spike Lee, Ricky Skaggs, Don Henley, Ornette Coleman, Bob Dylan, Bela Fleck, Bonnie Raitt, Pat Metheny, and Robbie Robertson. Throughout his career Hornsby has maintained the integrity, virtuosity and artistic curiosity that have been hallmarks of his work from the start. His performance will offer a glimpse of a restless spirit who continues to push forward into exciting new musical terrain. A special intimate show with Bruce's drummer Sonny Empory of the Noisemakers... and lucky you, you get to see it!! SMAC is very honored he chose their humble hall once again!

Known for his power pop in the nineties, this Nebraskan native Matthew Sweet delivered a slam dunk with his hit song and album, Girlfriend - a classic break up record. During a career that stretches back to the mid-’80s, Matthew Sweet has never followed trends, though his landmark 1991 album Girlfriend was responsible for starting one - its bone-dry, caterwauling sonics opening up a wild and picturesque new terrain for restless singer/songwriters to inhabit and explore. Now decades later, Sweet releases Tomorrow Forever, his fifth album of new material in this century, the first since 2011’s Modern  Art and 14th overall in a recording career spanning more than three decades, is teeming with his signature sounds and songwriting.

Husband and wife singer/songwriters Kris Delmhorst and Jeffrey Foucault rarely perform together as a duo, but if its rare SMAC is the best place to find it!
Kris Delmhorst
a prolific writer and constant collaborator, grew up in Brooklyn NY. Her musical home is in Boston MA where she cut her teeth on open mics, bar gigs, and subway busking before embarking on her life as an internationally touring songwriter. She has a smoky voice and when she sings she is lost in the song  more deeply than most. Burt what might get missed about her obvious talents is just want a great musician she is.
Jeffrey
Foucault grew up in Wisconsin and started playing guitar at 17. One of those songwriters who when you discover him, you feel feel deprived of the time you could have spent listening.  Compared to the likes of Greg Brown and John Prine, like Kris, a strong   Jeffrey has taken, in his own words, ‘the small roads;’ building a brick and mortar independent international touring career of ten studio albums, countless miles and critical accolades with his warm and gritty voice and troubadour style
Together, Delmhorst and Foucault live in a small town in western Massachusetts with their daughter who we are sure to hear about on this sweet night of love and music.

Back for an encore performance of this show that everyone loved! Three great folks singers one great night... all on stage, good friends, and joyful voices.

Christine Lavin: New York's own singer-songwriter and founding member of Four Bitchin' Babes. She is known for her sense of humor, which is expressed in both her music and her onstage performances. Many of her songs alternate between emotional reflections on romance and outright comedy. Her book COLD PIZZA FOR BREAKFAST: A MEM-WHA is another way Christine expresses herself. Just a knock-out performer.

Don White:
If you laugh and cry within the same ten minutes, you either need a vacation or you are sitting in the audience at a Don White show. This working class family man from Lynn, Massachusetts has emerged as the thoughtful songwriter of the decade whose relevance to our lives is evidenced by the powerful reaction he evokes at every concert. Radio audiences, too, are not safe from the Don White experience. Valerie Adams of WNCS Radio, Vermont said, "I've never seen anything like it. Every time I play I Know What Love Is the phones light up like a Christmas tree. Stereo Review Magazine called it "...A candidate for song of the year."

Vance Gilbert:
Burst onto the singer/songwriter scene in the early 90's when the buzz spread through the folk clubs of the Northeast about an ex-multicultural arts teacher who was knocking them dead at open mics. Word got out about this Philadelphia-area born and raised performer, and Shawn Colvin invited Gilbert to be a special guest on her 1992 Fat City tour. Gilbert took audiences across North America by storm. One review reads: "With the voice of an angel, the wit of a devil, and the guitar playing of a god, it was enough to earn him that rarity: an encore for an opener" Speaking of his live shows, artists as varied as Arlo Guthrie, Anita Baker, and the late George Carlin have in recent years requested Vance to be added to their evenings. Come see why. What a voice, what a nut, what a treat!
