Fourth Continental Congress – Saturday, June 1, 2019
(Featuring The Huntinghams, Andreas Transø, & The Yellow-Bellied Sapsuckers )
Folk Revolutionaries Scott and Marissa Cunningham reinstituted the Continental Congress in the Barn last April after a 243-year hiatus. This June they are gathering new musical delegates for another round of folk music fun.
For this Fourth Continental Congress,
Scott and Marissa will be joined by Maddie Hunt and will play under the sobriquet, “The Huntinghams”
Irish-Celtic folk singer Andreas Transø will make the trip all the way from Stoughton. His song “Forward, Wisconsin” should be the new state anthem.
The Yellow-Bellied Sapsuckers “are a refreshing brand-new take on old-time country. Their music recalls classic hillbilly music, while bringing a distinctly modern and lively touch to the Americana genre.”
As with the last Congress, you can plan on three separate sets followed by a gigantic song circle. If you have an instrument (and know how to play it) you are welcome to bring it along and join in.

Shawna Caspi – Saturday, August 24, 2019 at 7:30 pm.
Toronto-based singer-songwriter Shawna Caspi believes in poetry and the power of one person and one instrument, accompanying herself with a remarkable lyrical fingerpicking guitar style. Her performances capture audiences with grace and intimacy. Shawna’s fourth album Forest Fire is a collection of songs about burning things down and building them up again. When the words get heavy, they are held up to the light of love and gratitude. Shawna strives to be unafraid, to embolden quieted voices, to tell the truth above all else.
