Jenny and James
Jenny Voelker and James Graham are singer songwriters who live and play in the Upper Valley. Their songs often focus on parenting, self-reflection, and natural beauty.
Western Massachusetts-based singer-songwriter Grayson Ty has mastered the art of vulnerability. Entirely unpretentious, his stage presence is easy, genuine, and unguarded. In an era of so much disconnection and artifice, Grayson brings audiences together with his honest, heartfelt lyrics, and soulful, soothing voice.
Following a sold-out release show for his debut EP Believe, Grayson has shared the stage with American Idol winner Nick Fradiani, Heather Maloney (Signature Sounds), and Crystal Bowersox (American Idol runner-up) among others. Believe earned regional and international acclaim as Grayson toured extensively.
Grayson’s impeccable songwriting brings out the best of his full range, from R&B crooning and folk inspired storytelling to masterful pop riffs and earnest lyrics. He believes deeply in the connective power of music, working as a music therapist by day, and collaborating as cowriter with other songwriters.
Grayson’s recent single, “Fall Again”, has rapidly gained over 30,000 streams on Spotify, and was highly-reviewed by journals across the United States and Europe.

Monique Byrne and Andy Rogovin perform original music and eye-opening covers that reflect a mutual passion, sense of discovery and celebration of life. Their tightly blended vocal harmonies are mixed with an expressive instrumental style that is best described as a banjo-guitar romance. Crowes Pasture’s style of escapist folk transports and connects listeners through universal experiences in their “skillfully crafted, emotional songwriting” (Chris Eastburn, award-winning composer).
Stu Fuchs is a lifelong musician, award-winning teaching artist blending mindfulness practice and creative play. He has presented his ukulele workshops and concerts at ukulele festivals around the world and has performed classical and gypsy jazz guitar with symphony orchestras. Stu blends accessible mindfulness practices with playful holistic music instruction at his “ukulele zen” workshops and retreats. He was awarded a grant from the National Endowment for the Arts for his work bringing healing music to cancer patients. Stu recorded and toured with renowned sacred chant artist Snatam Kaur, playing on her “Best New Age” Grammy award nominated album “Beloved”.
The Michele Fay Band features original and Americana music that brings forth a comfortable groove of folk, swing, and bluegrass-influenced songs that are woven seamlessly together. Michele’s heart-felt lyrics are central to the ensemble, as she sings with a clear, authentic voice accompanied by guitar and banjo. Tim Price adds ideal melodic instrumentals on mandolin and guitar, while Kalev Freeman works his “lilting” fiddle. Michael Santosusso provides tenor harmonies and drives a dynamic beat with upright bass.
