Randall Kromm creates music that touches people, performing beautifully crafted songs of ordinary life that capture experiences and feelings we all share.  Kromm employs a variety of musical styles to convey stories of love, family, hope and uncertainty with insight and wit.  His songs and live performances are leavened with humor, enabling the audience to laugh about life’s challenges and difficulties.

New England performing legend Don White covered the song “Water Wheel” on his 2010 release Winning Streak.  White, who has recorded 11 CDs, had never covered another artist’s music, but says the song “spoke to me deeply and immediately.  My hope is that now lots of people will make the effort to discover the work of this very talented man.”  http://www.randallkromm.com/

The Lenny Solomon Band is a vocal-oriented, primarily acoustic band that combines intelligent thoughtful lyrics, melodies one can hum, a variety of rhythmic styles, and instrumental improvisation that creates an eclectic sound that incorporates several musical genres. All of the songs performed by the band are written by lead singer/guitarist, Lenny Solomon. Much of the music is a product of Lenny’s roots as a folk musician.  http://solomonband.com/

Ergo Canto (therefore we sing)the folk music duo opens the evening’s entertainment. Paul Beck and Leslie Bryant, perform a wide variety of original songs, covers, and traditional folk material.  In addition to vocals, you may hear six and twelve string guitars, fiddle, flute, mandolin, and harmonica. Paul Beck recently took early retirement from a high tech career to focus on music, woodworking, and crossword puzzles.  He plays guitars, mandolin, cittern, and banjo. Leslie Bryant teaches in the Boston school system.  Traveling to Peru frequently she donates instruments and printed music to the school in Cusco. She plays fiddle, flute, pennywhistle, and percussion. Visit Ergo Canto’s website http://www.ergocanto.org. Hear them play at http://myspace.com/ergocanto
