Day Of Show | $12
Stan Keach is a songwriter whose songs have been recorded by top bluegrass acts; lately, Stan writes mostly songs about Maine. He was recently inducted into the Maine Country Music Hall of Fame.
Jeff Trippe has been playing and writing music for many years. Born and raised in Jacksonville, Florida, he has had an abiding interest in blues, bluegrass, rock 'n' roll, and instrumental music of all sorts. Since moving to Maine in 2006, he has had the good fortune to have performed on some of New England's best stages, including the Stone Church in Newmarket, NH, One Longfellow Square in Portland, and the Maine Blues Festival. He has been a three-time finalist in the New England Songwriting Contest and took third-place prizes in both the 2017 Maine Songwriters Association Contest and the New Florida Song Contest. Jeff is also a freelance author with many works of fiction and nonfiction to his credit.
Maine singer/songwriter Sara Trunzo has a deep, abiding love for the land and people of the rural Northeast, and this serves as the common thread of her full-length debut, Dirigo Attitude, released in May. A follow-up to her debut EP, Thanks Birdie, released in 2017, Dirigo Attitude is an empowering manifesto on self-sufficiency and perseverance that benefits from the mastery of Grammy-nominated producer Erick Jaskowiak and Americana heavyweights Mary Gauthier and Darrell Scott, who lend vocals to, respectively, In the Bend of the Cumberland (reached #14 on the Folk DJ Chart) and Food and Medicine, (reached #3 on the Folk DJ Chart) which garnered first place in the 2018 Maine Songwriters Association song competition. The record reached #22 on the same chart, as of April 2019. Trunzos Maine-grown country songs are influenced by the decade she spent running a food bank farm. She delivers each song with the credibility of someone who is intimately aware of the stories she tells, and her no-frills, no-nonsense lyrics cut to the bone of the everyday struggles and triumphs of rural people in the Northeast. Sara Trunzo has toured nationally and currently lives in Nashville, Tennessee and Unity, Maine and on the road.
