June 14, Sparrow Blue

Sparrow Blue is a husband-and-wife singer/songwriting team with a love of American roots music. Todd Nickerson, on acoustic guitar, and Katy Boc, on fiddle, create their own vibrant sound by melding old-timey, classic country and bluegrass musical traditions.

The duo was described by Ellis Paul as having “the kind of honest charm and colloquial voice that transports you from a metallic time machine to a swinging barn dance in 1947. They make you feel that the war is over. In this troubled world, we need their kind of story songs right now.”

July 19, Kim Moberg and Kathleen Healy

Kathleen Healy, Noon to 2 PM

Kathleen Healy draws from her experience of living and raising a family near the beach for many of her songs. Some say salt water runs through her veins. She writes from the heart and her honest lyrics and often poignant subject matter lend themselves to the unique quality of her voice.

Kathleen performs throughout southern New England as a solo performer. She hosts open mic nights at local venues and thoroughly enjoys supporting the live music scene on Cape Cod and collaborating with other local musicians. When she is not performing or hosting, Kathleen can be found back in the studio recording her second studio album, “Vagabond.” Her CD, “Spark,” was released in 2014.

Kim Moberg, 2:30 to 4:30 PM

Kim Moberg was born in Juneau, Alaska, the daughter of a classical pianist mother and a US Coast Guard veteran father from Kansas. Music has always been an integral part of Kim’s life, helping her to adjust to the frequent moves associated with growing up in a military family. 

A fingerpick-style guitarist, Kim taught herself to strum and finger pick to her favorite songs by singer/songwriters of the 1960s and 1970s. Her original songs speak to reunion, awakening, and social consciousness.

Due to debilitating stage fright, Kim played and sang only in her basement, unable to pursue her dream of becoming a professional performer. In 2014, after a decade hiatus from music to foster a business career, to marry and raise two daughters, Kim set out to overcome her stage fright. In 2017, Kim released her debut CD titled “Above Ground” that celebrates the achievement of that goal.

July 26, John Yankee

A dynamic and versatile musician, John Yankee will sing folk songs and play hammered dulcimer. He is artistic director of the Falmouth Chorale, music director of the Falmouth Chamber Players Orchestra, director of music at John Wesley United Methodist Church, choral director at Falmouth Academy, and has recently established the Cape Cod Children's Chorus in conjunction with the Cape Cod Conservatory. 

Since coming to Falmouth in September 2007, he has also been active in various musical venues as a folk musician, singing and performing on the hammered dulcimer and keyboards. In addition, he coaches ensembles, teaches privately, and produces a variety of concerts, workshops and community sings.

The August 2, The Resemblance

The Resemblance is Anna Magee and Oliver Farrell, a mother and son duo.  Anna, a life-long musician, has been playing with Oliver for about 10 years, ever since he started learning the fiddle (training with Nikki Engstrom and the Sonnay Fiddlers, among others). Both are members of two large New England contra dance bands, and various other groups and ensembles, large and small. They share a combination of old-time, Celtic and contra dance tunes at many local arts markets, harvest fairs and contra dances on the Cape and along the Southeast Coast, on fiddle, guitar, mandolin, and keyboard.

August 9, The Familiars of Cape Cod

Manny and Linda Dias are The Familiars of Cape Cod. They sing and play folk, fiddle, country, Irish, and popular music from the 1950s through the 1980s. Manny sings and plays guitar, and Linda plays fiddle, mandolin, harmonica, and Irish whistles.

August 16, Triple-Slide with Tom Goux and Rusty Strange

Jazz standards on the slide guitar?  That’s what you get when Rusty Strange and Tom Goux offer up the timeless echoes of Hoagy Carmichael, Johnny Mercer, the Gershwins, Fats Waller, Cole Porter and such.  Rusty plays lead on both resonator guitar (Dobro) and his 8-string lap steel guitar, personally designed and crafted by Rusty himself. Tom sings while providing the jazz harmonies on his Hawaiian slide guitar, using a unique double slide technique he’s developed over the last decade. So, no blues, no bluegrass and only the occasional Hawaiian tune. Instead, a set from these two will always hold a full measure of classic American heart songs from New York and, from Nashville, a smattering of country classics.

August 23, Andy Sexton and Alex Zeuli

Andrew Sexton, guitar and vocals, and Alec Zeuli, sax, met at an open mic in 2015 and have been collaborating at every opportunity since then. Alec, long an alto sax player, recently took up the tenor. Their repertoire includes originals, 60s and 70s covers and selections from the Great American Songbook. 

August 30, Catie Flynn

A singer/songwriter born and raised on Cape Cod, Catie Flynn performs a variety of original music in genres including jazz, folk, country and Irish.
