" A distinctive songwriter with a warm, powerful, inherently melodic baritone, a fine guitarist and a devastating wit ... enormous writing gifts, capable of putting chills into your spine or a silly grin on your face..." – Jeff McLaughlin, The Boston Globe
Wet Paint May 8 - I3 2017, The Tamworth Visitors Council transformed Tamworth's historic community into an outdoor painting studio with a vision of becoming one of the East Coast’s most prestigious plein air art events, WET PAINT. This event showcased some of nation’s top plein air landscape painters alongside Emerging artists.

Wet Paint returns May 7 - 14, 2018, and will again include a concert at The Farmstand.
On Sunday Sept 25th 2017 we hosted a family-friendly day with Amy Fairchild and Carla Ryder's side-project, Miriam. The focus is on the tight harmonies, catchy songs and superb playing. At times playful, at times moody. But mostly it’s boot-stompin,’ lead vocal swappin’, ass-kickin’ fun. Steve Morse, former critic of 30 years at The Boston Globe says, " Music for the sheer pleasure of it... effervescent harmonies and melodic nirvana." They released a cd in May 2015 to a sold out crowd at The Burren in Somerville MA and are continuing their residency at Toad in Porter Square, Cambridge, MA the last Tuesday of each month until the end of days. We pressed cider, and served up some fall food. It was a great afternoon of music, food and fun.
