Tremedal Holiday Extravaganza: Bennett and Lorraine Hammond, Dean Stevens and Friends
Dean Stevens, the grand poo baa of everything in vicinity of his surrounding area, invites that amazingly Leviticously Deutoronomous duo of Bennett and Lorraine Hammond, to join him in a reprieve of last year's way way fun Holiday Gathering Craft, Coffee CD and Songfest. Join us!!

BENNETT AND LORRAINE:  "Quite simply acoustic music at it's finest." Dirty Linen Review
" Dazzling, witty, eclectic, delightful duo. These two are gentle masters
of folk melody. " Boston Globe
"Lorraine is considered among the country's best and most innovative dulcimer players. Bennett is a deceptively inventive and intelligent fingerstyle guitarist - deceptive because, however inventive or finger stretching his playing is, it is sublimely melodic.... the two embrace the calm grace of the music."
New England Folk Almanac
"More than just good pickers, Lorraine and Bennett are singers with an ear for traditional and contemporary songs. They work seamlessly together, blending instruments and voices." Golden Link Folk Singing Newsletter
"Though Lorraine has been called on the one hand 'the Jimi Hendrix of the dulcimer' for the way she can pick an electrically-amplified instrument, or apply a blues guitar slide, she and her husband, guitarist Bennett Hammond, are noted in particular for their ability to hear fresh sounds in antique music." Dulcimer Player News
"Lorraine Lee Hammond subordinates her spectacular dulcimer technique to the demands of the music, never over-ornamenting the simple tunes, but then blowing us away on the album's swing medley." Elijah Wald - Boston Globe
"Ms Hammond...sings and plays instruments as easily as she speaks."
Roberta Gordan - Brookline Tab
"Bennett is just an excellent, solid, finger-picking guitarist of the sort you could listen to all day." The Shetland Times, Scotland
The Hammonds are folk missionaries of the first order, devoted cultural activists, teachers, event organizers, and performers who love to introduce people to the joys of traditional music." Scott Alarik - Boston Globe

DEAN: For decades, Dean Stevens has
delighted audiences of all ages throughout the
Americas. An exuberant performer of distinctive
style and wit, he combines an intricate, self-taught
guitar style with a versatile and expressive
singing voice. He has established himself as
a formidable creator and interpreter of a
wide spectrum of songs in English and Spanish.
His own material explores a variety of personal
and social topics, paints sketches of people and
places, celebrates the Earth, and
annoys the narrow minded.


"Dean Stevens; remember that name; we'll be hearing a lot more from him. Deans Stevens will inspire you. Great voice!!
~~Pete Seeger
*
"Seeing and hearing Dean Stevens live on stage is proof that sanity,
literacy, love, hope, and the forces of good are still alive and well
and at work in the universe. Every song is offered with immediacy,
humanity, and humor underscored by the most articulate and inspired
guitar work you'll hear anywhere on the topical folk circuit. His
powerful anthem to natural cycles, Salmon, and well-chosen covers,
particularly David Dodson's brilliant indictment of our fossil fuel
addiction, Gasoline, will convince you that you are in the presence of a
thinking and compassionate master communicator at the peak of his
powers. Losing your faith? Go to a Dean Stevens concert!"

"Powerful...moving political performer"
~~ Boston Globe
*
"A performer with keen vision, tenacity and wisdom to inspire and to
entertain"
~~ Dirty Linen
*
"Dean Stevens is a charming entertainer, a musician of great sensitivity and wit.  His spirit of joy and sharing shines through his music."
~~Jerry Christen,  New Song Coffeehouse
*
"Dean Stevens is such a consummate musician and singer, such an easy guy
to be around that it's easy to forget what a great songwriter he is..a
sunny guy with a wicked wit, a killer guitar player,a first quality
player and a first quality human being."
~~Bob Franke
