We’ve got another great line-up of music for your listening pleasure. As always, it’s BYOB. And bring a pot luck dish to share as well, if you’d like.

Here’s the full line-up:

6:30 – TBA

7:00 – Dust Devil Heart

Dust Devil Heart is an acoustic duo featuring singer-songwriters Holley Anderson (guitar, vocals) and Elise Morrison (bass, vocals). Their big hearted originals are filled with close harmonies and poetic lyrics. They mix in beloved covers by artists such as Lucinda Williams, Leonard Cohen, Dar Williams, and the Indigo Girls. Formed in 2018, Dust Devil Heart has played regular gigs at The Stand in Branford as well as in Corvallis and Eugene, Oregon in June 2019 and were featured at the Short Beach Music Festival in July 2019. 

7:30 – Joe Stein

Joe Stein is a singer who accompanies himself on the keys, often creating his own arrangements of a wide range of rock, pop, folk, jazz, and R&B songs and infusing both older and more con-temporary music with his own unique spin. He also plays the trumpet, often sitting in with variety of local bands in the Shoreline music scene, and he plays 1st trumpet in the Yale Medical Symphony Orchestra. Joe lives with his wife and daughter in Branford, where he teaches in the public school system.

8:00 – Ralph Riello

8:30 – Break

9:00 – Butter Jones

Combining indie rock, Americana, alt-country and a dash of jam band, Butter Jones features lyrical storytelling and creative arrangements of original tunes—written by three of the band members. Butter Jones is Ken Chmielewski on lead guitar and vocals, Mike Conklin on bass and vocals, Matt Gyorog on rhythm guitar and vocals, and Gary Parrington on drums and vocals.

9:30 – Living With Robots

10:00 – Repeat Offenders

Based on the Connecticut Shoreline, the Repeat Offenders deliver a gritty blend of roots music – vintage blues, country, and rock – all in their own inimitable style.
