Songwriters on Stage
Each month, the Maine Songwriters' Association presents Songwriters on Stage, a showcase of some of the best songwriters Maine has to offer. The show typically features three seasoned performers and an emerging songwriter to kick the evening off. It's an opportunity for listeners to discover new music or come hear local favorites in one of the best listening rooms in Maine. The May concert will feature all seasoned performers: Jeff Trippe, Andrew Thomas, Karen Gray, and Nancy Sferra.
Jeff Trippe abiding interest is in blues, bluegrass, rock 'n' roll, and instrumental music of all sorts. He had the good fortune to perform on some of New England's best stages, including the Stone Church in Newmarket, NH, One Longfellow Square in Portland, main stages at the Yarmouth Clam Festival and Common Ground Fair, and the Maine Blues Festival. Jeff was also a finalist in the Will McLean New Florida Song Contest, the New England Songwriting Contest, and the Maine Songwriters Association Contest.
Karen Gray is a Brunswick native, who taught herself guitar, singing, and songwriting. She has emerged into a sweet-voiced troubadour with a style of her own. Karens well-crafted tunes tell of heartache, triumph, humor, and new ideas and earned her a reputation as one of Midcoast Maine's up and coming singer/Songwriters. Karens debut CD is now available for purchase as well as her other music-based creations.
Andrew Thomas is an award-winning songwriter, producer, and keyboardist from the Augusta, Maine area. His music ranges from upbeat, humorous piano workouts to introspective, emotional ballads. A self-taught keyboardist, vocalist, and classically trained violinist, Thomas brings a number of musical influences to his work from classic pop like Todd Rundgren, to the piano-driven musings of contemporary artists like Ben Folds and Sara Bareilles. Andrew has earned awards and honors for his songwriting including the Maine Songwriters Association song contest.
Nancy Sferra is a multi-instrumentalist living in midcoast Maine. Nancy performs her folk-blues compositions on guitar, lap steel, banjo, ukulele, banjo-ukulele, and washboard. Her inspiration comes from found poems snatches of overheard conversation, notes from a discarded journal, objects, lines from books or other texts, and photographs. Nancys songs often focus on the working class, day to day struggles, and the simple life inspired by rural Maine culture. She has two CDs, Smoke and Bone and Hardened Ground.
