About the Show and the Artist:
With a suitcase of songs, Maine folk troubadour Dan Blakeslee ventured into the smoke laden subways of Boston in 1995 to practice his craft. His songs of true life adventures combine the essence of early folk music with a dose of country grit. He has toured the U.S. and performed with Josh Ritter, Sean Rowe, David Wax Museum, Lydia Loveless, The Lumineers, Old 97's, The Black Lillies, Liam Finn and Kimya Dawson among others. In 2015 his dream of playing Newport Folk Festival became a reality, the location where Bob Dylan went electric 50 years earlier. Dan Blakeslee delivers his songs with that same heart of a young, lyric scribbling troubadour, who knows because he’s tried it, can out sing a passing train.
Blakeslee had a terrific summer, in July he made his main stage debut at Newport Folk Festival.  In August he released solo acoustic album “Road Hymns”, and in September he toured throughout Ireland. 
Allysen Callery is an American folksinger from New England whose delicate, austere sound has been compared to classic British folk artists like Nick Drake, Sandy Denny and Vashti Bunyan. A native of Rhode Island, Allysen taught herself to sing and play fingerstyle guitar by listening to her parents' collection of U.K. folk records from the '60s and '70s. 
Allysen is on the vinyl exclusive German label Cosirecords Schallplatten .
Avi Jacob is a Providence-based folk singer-songwriter who recently won a New England Music Award for rising star of Rhode Island. He released the single “New England Woman” in 2022, and his forthcoming debut full band LP "Hawk in the Nest" will be released this fall. “New England Woman” was recorded/mixed/mastered by NEMA nominee for Producer of the Year, Andrew Oedel at Ghost Hit Studio
