Eavesdrop Trio

Thursday, December 13th

Originating as a trio, friends Kara Rose Wolf, Kerrie T. Bowden and Laura Marie Picchi maintain their vocal roots and continue to shape their sound through writing and collaborative instrumentation. Eavesdrop’s debut EP, The Afterglow, showcased the trio’s vocally charged acoustic, folk, soul roots. With their latest release, TIDES, the band has expanded into a six piece ensemble. Co-produced by Alan Evans and Ross Bellenoit, TIDES is the band’s first full length album. It brings the listener on a ride alongside the three songbirds, taking a deeper look into the life events that fostered their creativity.

The RiverGods

Thursday, December 20th

The Rivergods are a fun, original, working band based in southeastern CT that has played its own heartfelt harmony-rich folky/rootsy/rockish music since 1997. The Rivergods are fronted by husband/wife songwriters, Ben and Nancy Parent, and the band includes some of the finest, most talented players in the region, and has had some pretty great ones in the past. The Rivergods make real music, our music… how and when we like and as often as we can. We’re fairly rooted in southern New England, with well-rounded lives, but we definitely get out for the occasional road trip. 


Charlie Marie

Thursday, December 27th

Charlie Marie may have cut her song-writing teeth in Nashville, but, it wasn’t until Charlie moved back home to Rhode Island and away from the neon glow of Music Row, that she truly found her unique and defining sound.  The sound that can both ignite the honky-tonk flame and silence the rowdiest of professional drinking crowds. Charlie Marie writes songs that evoke feelings of hope and positivity through the trenches of the toughest heartaches, evoking the true sense of country and western music.
