Five in the Chamber

Thursday, May 23rd

Five in the Chamber is a New Haven, Connecticut based bluegrass band that drives hard and carries a big pick.  They respect the tradition. They respect the trailblazers. And they respect the renegade outlaws. Our final product is an eclectic balance of American roots music which both reinterprets and redefines the bluegrass songbook. Formed in 2011, the band has spent the last several years building a catalog of music that showcases the group’s strong vocals, musicianship, and passion for genre busting.  The band released their debut album in the Fall of 2013 entitled Live in the Chamber to rave reviews and has recently released a self titled EP.

Chris Ross & The North

Thursday, May 30th

Ross spent the better part of a decade tucked away on the coast of Maine developing his voice as a writer. Inside the arsenal of tracks he’s penned, one finds dangerous, hard-hitting reflections; stories of love, life and longing, appealing because they’re so real. Tinted with an appetite for self-destruction, his writing style is smooth and eloquent while remaining sincere to genuine grit of experience. When his sonorous vocals found affinity with a band, the evolution cultivated a multifaceted, visceral experience for listeners, an auditory landscape much like that of Maine itself: Humble yet dramatic, severe yet sweet, cold and resonant with a nearby fire throwing heat.

Mama Ain’t Dead

Thursday, June 6th

Mama Ain’t Dead puts a new spin on American roots music with harmony-driven originals and hot fiddle tunes. Today, the band rambles around New England, making a ruckus in whatever bar, coffeehouse, or festival still celebrates the American folk tradition. Mama keeps the live show fresh, digging into ripping fiddle tunes, honoring old bluegrass standards, or belting out original sing-alongs with 3- and sometimes 4-part harmonies.
