Our favorite dobro player returns to Harvard Sq. performing a rare solo and acoustic show in this intimate Cambridge landmark. Jerry is very likely the most sought after musician on the planet. From Alison Krauss's Union Station to Elvis Costello's acoustic project to the famed Trans-Atlantic Sessions.

Here are a few of his credits:
  • 13 Time Grammy Winner
  • 3 Time Country Music Association MUSICIAN OF THE YEAR
  • Distinguished Recipient of the NATIONAL HERITAGE FELLOWSHIP from The National Endowment Of The Arts 
  • Performed on over 2000 albums

    Ticket Information: All seats are General Admission.

As you may or may not know, David Lamb is again battling leukemia and is currently in need of all our thoughts and prayers. This online event was created to show support for Dave and MorganEve and their friends, fans and family around the world.

Love and Light for Brown Bird

Hey Boston Friends:  Bow Thayer's "Eden--Live at the Chandler" is featured in American Songwriter Magazine.  Bow came to VT several years ago from Boston area.  Check his music out if you are not familiar.  He calls it Progressive Mountain Music.  He's even invented a new instrument called the Bowjotar.  And while you're at it, check out my newly renovated website where I have Indie music streaming and bios of the artists I work with.

Are there any independent college radio stations in the greater Boston area that would be interested in picking up the syndicated The Grateful Dead Hour?
From David Gans, "The Grateful Dead Hour" producer' Facebook page:
"WUMB is planning to drop 
The Grateful Dead Hour after January 12. Please ask them to reconsider - and to move the show back to a more accessible time, too!"
