Katie Dobbins draws from a music palette of contemporary folk and new country. With a mastery of storytelling and the heart of a poet, this soulful songstress captures elements of life and relationships in ways that lift spirits and challenge the soul. Featured in renown press outlets such as Boston Voyager and Limelight, her debut album She Is Free (released 2017) was described by The Deli Magazine as "a deeply personal record that is full of reflective poetry and messages of love . . . bringing to mind Jewel's Pieces of You." Throughout her record and live performances, Dobbins creates a warm inviting atmosphere that leaves her listeners longing for more.

Lindsey Sampson Music
Lindsey Sampson blends quiet morning folk with Southern stomp & holler for a sound with depth and energy.

Dean Harlem is an Americana, roots and country Singer/Songwriter based out of Epping, New Hampshire. His Journey began in New Jersey, which he left after high school to hitchhike the U.S. chasing after the spirit of Woody Guthrie. He cut his teeth as a performer playing on the street in San Francisco for tips, sometimes playing for up to 8 hours a day. “I mostly just played folk songs because they were easy and quick to learn. The Carter Family, Woody Guthrie, Bob Dylan, that was the meat of my set.”
After spending the last winter in Austin, Texas, Dean is now back home in New England, playing shows and working on his first full band, full length album. His musical influences include Bruce Springsteen, Steve Earle, Kris Kristofferson, John Prine and Townes Van Zandt.
