Award-winning singer and songwriter, Amy Correia, is a mesmerizing performer whose mixture of raw power and musical honesty has been compared to Tom Waits and Michelle Shocked by The New York Times' Jon Pareles. Amy Correia's latest album You Go Your Way was a leap of faith as much as a creative declaration of independence when Amy went her own way and raised more than 35K to create her third record. After two major releases on EMI, her first independent release went on to receive international raves from fans and critics alike and won the 2012 Independent Music Award for Best Folk Singer-Songwriter album. Correia plays with her band this night, featuring Kimon Kirk on bass, Andy Plaisted on drums and Mike Castellana on bass.
"Nothing short of a masterpiece." Steve Almond, author of Rock n Roll Will Save Your Life
"She's back in top form with "You Go Your Way" another rootsy gem of an album." Evan Schlansky, American Songwriter

Porch Party Mamas
Inspired by playing and singing each others songs at their own "porch parties", these established Boston area musicians and singer/songwriters decided to combine their individual talents and create their own brand of Urban Folk, Country and Blues. They took their act on the road and "Porch Party Mamas" was born. All are seasoned players, each with their own pervasive individual music persona and critical accolades. Between them, they have shared the stage with a distinguished litany of artists, including Willie Nelson, the Indigo Girls and Lyle Lovett.
Liz Cook, Sarah Jane Shangraw and Ron Wilhelmsen; guitar Students of Ksenia Mack, a member of the PPM's, will open the show at 8PM sharp.
