The Grand Slambovians

The Grand Slambovians

Friday, October 18, 8:00pm
Peterborough Players Theater

The Grand Slambovians (formerly known as Gandalf Murphy and the Slambovian Circus of Dreams) are a band like no other.

"While it is tempting to call the band folk-rock, jam band or historically-steeped Americana, the Slambovian experience goes beyond most standard classification. A sense of humor and the absurd, an appreciation for romance and a belief in spirituality pervade the songs." ~ Stanley Johnson (nippertown.com)

"Lively songs that are imbued with mystical stirrings." ~ New York Times

"…remind me to write and perform with my whole heart and soul." ~ Dar Williams

Le Vent du Nord

Le Vent du Nord

Saturday, November 30, 8:00pm
Peterborough Players Theater

"If you've seen them before, you already know. And if you've never seen them, words won't do them justice. Le Vent du Nord is one of the best bands touring today, no matter your musical taste" - Syracuse New Times

"The quartet Le Vent du Nord is a leading force in the province's progressive folk movement, and they leaven their hard-driving soulful music (a close cousin to Celtic music) with New Orleans polyphony and R&B. Featuring button accordion, guitar and fiddle, the band's sound is defined by the hurdy-gurdy, which adds an earthy, rough-hewn flavor to even the most buoyant dance tunes." - The Los Angeles Times

Chris Smither

Chris Smither

Saturday, January 18, 8:00pm
Peterborough Players Theater

"A profound songwriter, Chris Smither draws deeply from the blues, American folk music, modern poets, and philosophers. Reviewers continue to praise his dazzling guitar work, gravelly voice and songwriting. "Smither is an American original - a product of the musical melting pot and one of the absolute best singer-songwriters in the world." - Associated Press

"Chris Smither is the epitome of a 20th-century bluesman: rooted in the work of legends like Lightnin' Hopkins and Mississippi John Hurt; a muscular guitarist and accomplished songwriter in his own right; voice; and capable of conveying a wide range of emotions - from whimsy to heartache to despair." - Acoustic Guitar

"Chris Smither has traveled countless miles with his careworn blend of folk and acoustic blues. His hallmarks include the fingers of an effortless musician, a voice as craggy and deep as the earth, the soul of a philosopher and master poet, and the foot-tapping percussion of a restless wanderer…" - Chicago Sun Times

Red Molly

Red Molly

with special guest Marc Douglas Berardo
Saturday, February 22, 8:00pm

Peterborough Players Theater

Since 2004, Americana trio Red Molly has been bringing audiences to their feet with gorgeous three-part harmonies, crisp musicianship, and their warm, engaging stage presence. The band consists of Laurie MacAllister (bass, banjo), Abbie Gardner (dobro, banjo) and Molly Venter (guitar). This past year, the ladies were invited to open multiple shows for music legend Willie Nelson and they performed at the venerable RockyGrass festival in CO. Their new CD "Light in the Sky" spent 20 weeks on the Americana Music Association's Top 40 radio chart and charted as Folk DJ's #3 Top Album of 2012.

"Make room, Roches and Wailin' Jennys, Red Molly has earned a place among the elite female trios." - John Platt, WFUV

Marc Douglas BerardoMarc Douglas Berardo is the kind of hard working, fast moving, adventure seeking, keen observer who lives for the story and the song.In what amounts to song length works of fiction, Berardo's sharply drawn portraits cast a net on unusual and beguiling characters and places. With a painter's eye for detail, and music firmly rooted in the great American sound, Berardo sings about circus retirees, expatriates in Florida rum bars, union iron workers, old poets, aimless New York City debutantes, near death car crashes, hard nosed fishermen and of course, the changes that experience brings to everyone. He does this "simply and well" with what Rambles Cultural Magazine calls: "careful images and great tunes."

Peter Yarrow

Peter Yarrow

with special guest Mustard's Retreat
Saturday, March 8, 8:00pm

Peterborough Players Theater

"We're part of a long train ride," is the way Peter Yarrow visualizes the many events that have highlighted a career three decades long. With characteristic care, Yarrow places the success he's had within a greater context, seeing his accomplishments as part of a tradition, to be credited and carried on. "When I was in high school, I heard The Weavers sing 'If I had a Hammer" at Carnegie Hall," he recalled. "It was inspiring, and it showed me the extraordinary effect that music of conscience can have." That lesson was one that Peter Yarrow took to heart.

"Peter Yarrow is as passionate about social justice as he was when he belonged to the famous folk trio Peter, Paul & Mary." - Bob Cullivan, The Portland Tribune

Mustard's Retreat

"David Tamulevich and Michael Hough's engaging stage presence, myriad of subject matter, and the sheer joy that they take in playing has made Mustard's Retreat one of the most revered bands in folk music today." - Madison Folk Music Society

Tom Rush

Tom Rush

Friday, April 25, 8:00pm
Special Reception with Tom at 6:45 (see below)
Peterborough Players Theater

We are selling only twenty (20) $100 tickets for a private reception with Tom Rush 6:45-7:30pm plus preferred seating. Tickets available for the reception are only available at Ticket Stage or by mail. (Already selling fast). All other tickets are $45 and are availabe at the usual locations.

Rush's impact on the American music scene has been profound. He helped shape the folk revival in the '60s and the renaissance of the '80s and '90s, his music having left its stamp on generations of artists. James Taylor told Rolling Stone, "Tom was not only one of my early heroes, but also one of my main influences." Country music star Garth Brooks has credited Rush with being one of his top five musical influences. Rush has long championed emerging artists. His early recordings introduced the world to the work of Joni Mitchell, Jackson Browne and James Taylor, and in more recent years his Club 47 concerts have brought artists such as Nanci Griffith and Shawn Colvin to wider audiences when they were just beginning to build their own reputations.

"Tom was not only one of my early heroes, but also one of my main influences." - James Taylor

"His voice is still molasses, smoke and licorice; his fingers still coax magic and thunder from every guitar string, and he's as engaging a storyteller as he ever was." - Nancy Young, GateHouse News Service

$100 Special Reception (only 20 to be sold)

Tickets are non refundable. Seating is on a first come first served basis with reception patron seated first. There is no reserved seating. General admission tickets are available three different ways, while reception tickets are available only through Ticket Stage or by mail :
