Ethan Porter

My name is Ethan Porter. I grew up in Canton, Connecticut, where I learned to play the piano and guitar at a young age. My interest in music continued throughout high school, where I played upright bass and tuba in the jazz ensemble and symphonic band. I am now a student at Northeastern University, and will be studying business in the spring. I am extremely grateful to have had the opportunity to record and release an EP this year, titled “Quiet for Help”, as well as my single “Your Hearts Just Doing Its Job”, which are available on Spotify and iTunes. Music has become my passion, and it is great to be able to write and perform in the city of Boston. My music is best described as indie folk/acoustic pop. I look for simplicity in my style and depth in my lyrics, and am influenced by artists such as Ed Sheeran, City and Colour, and James Arthur. For me, music is how I analyze my life. I look at the world around me and translate my biggest fears, greatest emotions, and most influential thoughts into music as best I can, in the hopes that other people can feel the passion I feel when I am playing my music.

Grain Thief

to Dec 10

Grain Thief

Grain Thief is a 5-piece Northern Country Barn Grass band from Boston MA. The group is comprised of Patrick Mulroy (guitar, vocals), Zach Meyer (mandolin, vocals), Michael Harmon (bass, vocals), Tom Farrell (lead guitar), and Alex Barstow (fiddle). Their debut EP Animal was released in November of 2015, which showcases the band's roots in folk, bluegrass, and old time music. Since their first release, Grain Thief has performed throughout the northeast at various music venues and festivals, and currently holds a weekly residency at The Burren in Somerville MA.

The band is currently working on their first full-length album, which is due out in December 2017. The band teamed up with Alan Day of the band Four Year Strong to produce the album at Wachusett Recording, located in Central Massachusetts. Mulroy's lyrical approach to the album is met equally with songs of loss and regret, and the struggles of the everyday working man with a satirical twist. The inspiration behind Grain Thief's first full length was to fully explore the boundaries of the Americana genre by utilizing the various instrumental talents within the band, incorporating instrumentation such as electric guitar and drums to their acoustic roots.

Scott Jackson

8:30 PM20:30

Scott Jackson

Scott Jackson has a passion for music that started before he ever picked up a guitar. Much of his childhood was spent listening to classic folk artists like Simon and Garfunkel, James Taylor and Crosby Stills Nash & Young, forming the acoustic roots that identify his music. After the tragic loss of his mother at the age of 11, Scott began playing the guitar as a way to get his mind off of more serious matters. With years of fingerstyle guitar practice under his belt, he threw his voice into the mix and began writing songs. This would lead to a deeper love for music that has grown into a steady stream of original songs recorded in Scott's home studio. 

Scott's first album "A Chance to Fly" was released in June 2017 and is currently being promoted around the Seacoast/Boston area. The album features songs of adventure, heartbreak and a love for nature. Scott's second album is in progress and is expected to release in 2018.

Emerald Rae
Nov

7:00 PM19:00

Emerald Rae

There are a lot of new sounds on the debut album, If Only I Could Fly, from Boston roots musician Emerald Rae. The first sound you hear is the deep buzzing drones of the ancient medieval Welsh fiddle the crwth (pronounced “krooth”). An unusual instrument playing by only a small number of people today, Emerald came upon the instrument during her studies of early Scottish traditional music. Another new sound found on the album is Emerald’s active blending of new world Americana with old word Celtic influences. This starts with the drones of the crwth, which helped her bring her music full circle back home to America’s Southern mountains. This could be a new iteration of the old path that brought Scots-Irish music to Appalachia in the first place, or it could be that some trace of that path still remains, inspiring young musicians even today. If Only I Could Fly also introduces a new identity for this young artist who’s known as a masterful fiddler – singer/songwriter. On this album, Emerald Rae debuts her singing and songwriting, with original songs like the rough-and-tumble “Sweet Arrest” and the percussive, fiddle-driven “Summer Time Will Come.” The new album is a big identity shift for Emerald, but she feels it’s liberating. It’s a chance for her to bring her eclectic tastes in other music into her traditional background. Her inspiration for the creation of this album included such wide-ranging artists as Scottish singer Karine Polwart, Americana master Gillian Welch and even early Willie Nelson!
