Kenny Selcer & Roberta Lamb
Roberta Lamb rocks to the beat of a variety of musical styles, from blues and pop to Americana. She picked up her first guitar as a child in Texas and took to singing folk songs, Spanish traditional tunes, and ballads. Roberta honed her vocal craft as a classical musician. Her originals are harmonically sophisticated and her lyrics reflect her optimism and wry humor. She just released her first album, Not Your Mama’s Blues, in 2019.
Kenny Selcer weaves a masterful, fluid thread through genre after genre in his riveting live performances. He traverses the musical map with infectious melodies and unstoppable rhythms, soothes the spirit, rocks the house and melts into a seductive, bluesy groove. It’s a unique, uplifting sound that comes through both live and on disc!
Infectious bluegrass for the 21st century! Combining bluegrass with country and folk roots, the Splinters offer an energetic take on traditional music. Their repertoire spans from haunting renditions of old songs to raucous bluegrass and fiddle tunes to more modern classics from some of the best songwriters out there. NBC Boston listed them as a “band to watch”, during the 2018 Somerville Porchfest.
The Splinters released their first album in November 2016 as a duo, “Old Songs”, which tells you where they are coming from – mining tradition for new meaning, all while tapping your feet and having a good time!
The Green Sisters
Sprouting from a small farm in rural Massachusetts, the Green Sisters have had a deep love of music from birth. They’ve been playing venues in New England regularly for five years and have garnered quite the following. It’s hard not to smile when treated with their tight harmonies and high energy tunes; their loving but wry sibling banter makes every life show enjoyable.
The four gals get together to play as often as they can. They revel in each other’s company, and jump easily from bluegrass to barbershop to blues to Celtic to originals of all styles.
