MICHAEL TROY was born and raised in the rough-and-tumble mill town of Fall River, Mass. In many ways, his life reflects the lives of the hard-working common folk who populate this part of New England. Having spent parts of his own life as a mill worker, fisherman, laborer and carpenter, and most of his adult years as a husband and father, Michael has traveled many paths, and the experience and wisdom he's gleaned along the way echoes through his music. A magical storyteller with a gift for melody, a deep rich voice, excellent finger-picking skills and the ability to compose outstanding stanzas of substance, Michael's plaintive ballads speak of the hills and mills of Fall River and of childhood dreams not quite forgotten in the adult quest to make an honest living.
CHUCK WILLIAMS has performed throughout New England and coast to coast. This songwriter's music is of love gained, love lost, growing up & moving on. He can take you on a journey that makes you think, smile, and at times cry. His lyrics and melodies are a musical journey reflecting emotions of everyday life brought to you through the stories within his songs. Chuck has had the pleasure of opening for national touring artists such as Steve Forbert, Cheryl Wheeler, Kelly Joe Phelps, Rod McDonald, the John Young Band and Claude Bourbon. He has performed at many festivals including the Boston Folk Festival, the Boston Music Festival, and New Bedford Summerfest.
