Hailing from New Haven County, Michael Hunton brings you old time Americana infused with delta blues, roots, Appalachia, a few good stories, and a bottle of whiskey. Performing in bars, street corners, back porches, living rooms, and bonfires, Hunton cultivates an old sound inspired by the likes of Doc Watson, Son House, Charlie Parr, Steve Earle and Townes Van Zandt that will take your mind to a time filled with juke joints and freight trains. In 2015 Hunton released the album entitled "Catch That Train”, gloriously filled with stories of sin & redemption, second chances, and finding your path home - wherever that may be. Come and stay a while, and you just might find yourself hollerin’, stompin’, laughin’, and reaching for the nearest bottle of bourbon too.
Oh, Cassius! is singer-songwriters and multi-instrumentalists, John Torres & Meredith DiMenna. Where Gram Parsons and Emmylou Harris meets Of Monsters and Men, Oh, Cassius! plays beautiful and haunting songs that are simultaneously classic and modern.
Rusty Things is a 4 piece band from CT, playing a mix of folk rock and roll and punk.
The Can Kickers
Since 2000, the Can Kickers have been making people dance, playing over 750 shows in the U.S., Mexico, Canada, and Europe. They take old time American fiddle tunes and rev them up. This is a band that you want to see live. You'll dance, you'll sweat, and you'll smile. Tommy Ramone once said, "The Can Kickers take an old time tune and turn it into a jump up, shout it out party!" Come to a show and see Dan, Dan, and Doug play their hearts out. The night might end with the band in the crowd leading a stomp-a-long, play-it-faster version of an old song, or it might end with a bunch of strangers holding each other and swaying happily to a slow waltz. They guarantee a good time or your money back.
