Rob Siegel is well known in Boston folk music circles as an innovative songwriter who draws from his idyllic yet stressed-out middle-class suburban existence and produces memorable, intelligent, well-crafted songs. Rob has opened for Bill Staines, Vance Gilbert, Jack Hardy, Geoff Muldaur, and others. His 2000 debut CD “Shaker Chair” received airplay on the WUMB radio network, and his 2004 CD “Voices from the Right Brain: Rob Siegel Live at Club Passim” charted on FolkDJ. Rob’s music has been described as fearless, truthful, and deeply personal yet universal. He’s been compared to John Prine, Richard Shindell, and Harry Chapin, with a delivery that is engaging and intimate, wry and tender, funny and unflinchingly honest.

Boston area singer-songwriter Mark Stepakoff is much admired on the local folk and roots music scene for his mix of humorous and poignant material, in the vein of artists such as John Prine and Loudon Wainwright III.  He has won numerous songwriting awards, including 4 First Prizes in The Great American Song Contest and 2 First Prizes in American Songwriter Magazine’s lyric contest.  He has also been a finalist in the Grassy Hill Performing Songwriter Contest and received honorable mention in the John Lennon Songwriting Contest and the Rocky Mountain Folks Festival Songwriter Showcase (3 times).  Four of Mark’s songs have made the top 10 on the national Folk Radio airplay chart, reaching as high as Number 3.

Boston musician Sam Bayer is your literate, exuberant guide to an imaginary world where housewives win the Nobel Prize in physics, poker-playing children gamble over their bedtimes, and metaphorical elephants pirouette in the den, four and a half minutes at a time. His latest studio CD, The Great Indoors, brings 11 gems from his universe to yours. He has won no awards merely because the world cannot grasp his genius. Learn more at https://sambayer.com.
