The Promise Is Hope at the Stanley-Whitman House!
We are thrilled to have Indie Folk duo Ashley and Eric LEsperance of "The Promise Is Hope" come to the Stanley-Whitman House to perform in our Tavern Room as part of our new "House Concert" series.

This series presents artists and shows differently than a club show- instead it is more up close and personal. All of the artifice is stripped away. No stage, no dressing room, no barrier between the performer and the audience.

The Stanley-Whitman House music series in our tavern is more like being on-step-closer to the way music was intended- an artist traveling from town to town, telling stories and making friends.

I hope that you can join us for what will promise to be a terrific evening of music.

Seating is limited and tickets are $20 available at Brown Paper Tickets:


Ashley and Eric LEsperance first felt the electricity of their undeniable chemistry at an impromptu song swap. A year and a half later they were married and released their debut album Where Weve Been & Where Were Going.

Jessica Phaneuf, WUMB, says I listen to A LOT of music, and this [album] would be at the top of the pile. Their highly-anticipated sophomore release is expected to drop May 2018.

The Promise is Hope has earned their place among New Englands finest emerging indie-folk duos, with a live performance that is often described as beautifully moving, inspired, and connected.

In 2017, Worcester Telegram & Gazette named them Best Entertainers in Central Massachusetts and they were invited to perform at the Connecticut Folk Festival. They have captured the hearts of listeners in hundreds of crowds all over New England and the Mid-Atlantic, and have shared the stage with renowned folk artists such as Parsonsfield, Amy Speace, Antje Duvekot, and Gaelynn Lea.

Their music marries two distinctly talented songwriters, and their sound is shaped by tastes of folk, electronic, acoustic and pop. Ashley performs subtle yet stunning melodies with a classically-trained, but often folksy, voice.

Her poetic lyrics explore the deep mysteries within nature and human relationship. Erics obvious reverence for the great folk songwriters of the 60s and 70s shines through his sweetly deep voice.

His prose-like lyrics unravel the joys and struggles of lifes journeys, and take what appears to be freeform and make it flow beautifully into well-crafted pieces.  Together, the two artists complement each other in every respect.

Their songs are sometimes fun, sometimes deep, and always aimed for the heart. As Eric puts it, The Promise is Hope aims to write songs that are honest and true  in a way that hopefully helps others see the truth and the beauty that exists in their own lives.
