Mo Kenney, Dylan Guthro and Carleton Stone come together in a songwriters' circle with a twist. They'll share their own songs and sing and perform backup for each other. As well, especially for this performance Mo, Dylan and Carleton will compose brand new songs as a trio of vocalists (a la Peter, Paul and Mary). When three of the regions' hottest talent commodities share the stage, who knows what will happen.

Rugged, raspy, and roaring with charisma. Halifax's Ben Caplan is to folklore, what smoke is to bourbon. Perfectly coupled. Take the raw energy of this singer/songwriter and add saxophones, brass, percussion and bass, stir in some Balkan rhythms and spice it up with the joy, passion and depth of Klezmer and you've got a sound that truly stands out from the masses.
