Performance Calendar
Scheduled Performances for 2017:  
July 21 (Friday): The Press Gang click for details
The irish powerhouse of a band the Press Gang, performs songs and dance music of Ireland with great skill and enthusiasm. The quartet features the unique voice and flute playing of Hanz Araki (called “an Irish music phenomenon in America” by Irish Music Magazine), along with accordion and concertina player Christian “Junior” Stevens, Alden Robinson on fiddle, and Owen Marshall on guitar and bouzouki. Based in Portland, Maine, they tour regularly throughout the U.S. and are staples of the music community in their home state. The joy that these musicians pour into playing music together is unmistakable and infectious. Irish Guitarist John Doyle says, “One of those rare bands that are ingenious, driving, thoughtful and yet have great respect for the tradition.”We could not agree more. Check out this Maine Irish treasure of a band.

July 22 ( Saturday): The Mammals featuring Mike and Ruthy click for details
THE MAMMALS ARE BACK
The Mammals is a five-piece Americana band from Woodstock, NY. “A string band at the core, The Mammals augment their sound with drums and electric guitar to create a collectively harmonized howl as thrilling and rocking as any band currently subverting folk traditions” - No Depression The band features stand-out songwriters Mike Merenda and Ruth Ungar (sometimes known as Mike + Ruthy) lifted by a thrilling rhythm section of bass, drums and pedal steel. "The Mammals don’t suffer from multiple genre syndrome, they celebrate it as if gleefully aware that the sound barriers separating old-timey music, vintage pop and contemporary folk are as permeable as cotton.” - Washington Post

Check out their newest songs "Culture War" and "My Baby Drinks Water" here.

July 27 ( Thursday): Bob Marley click for details
You know'em, you love'm...more than 15 years as a stand-up comic, Maine's own Bob Marley is one of the hottest and most sought after comedians in the country. He has raised more than $12,000 for the Barbara Bush Children's Hospital after setting a new world's record for longest continuous stand-up routine as recognized by the Guinness Book of Records. He has been featured in his own special on Comedy Central, and is one of the few comics to do the complete late night TV circuit: The Late Show with David Letterman, The Tonight Show with Jay Leno, Late Night with Conan O’Brien and The Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson and Craig Kilborn. But all those accolades aside, he is just one of us, and we can't get enough of him. Always a sell out.

July 28 (Friday): Aaron Neville Up Close and Personal click for details
An intimate duo show that we are so happy to have back. Aaron Neville is always amazing, but to hear is voice in such a pure format, in our hall will just be stunning. One of the most distinctive voices in music today, Aaron Neville is the master of many styles. During his career, which stretches across more than 50 years, he has been nominated for 12 Grammy's awards. His nominations have come in the soul, gospel, jazz, country/western, R&B, and pop categories; winning four times. His albums of Christian, R&B, jazz and adult contemporary music have also consistently topped the charts. In 1993, Rolling Stone Magazine’s Critics’ Poll named him the best male singer in the world. Neville was inducted into the Louisiana Music Hall of Fame in 2010. The audience at an Aaron Neville concert can expect to hear do-wop and gospel from his recent albums, as well as blues, jazz, soul, pop, blues, with some country and even reggae thrown into the mix. It’s a playlist that reprises and celebrates his remarkable career – one of the great success stories in American music. For this special night you should also expect Aaron to share stories about his family and his musical and life long influences...up close and personal. Your welcome Barbie H. : >)

July 29 ( Saturday): Slaid Cleaves click for details
Hailing from Maine originally, this now Austin songwriter might as well have been born in the lone star state. He's got the Austin style songwriting reminiscent of Joe Ely or Townes Van Zandt, but a style and sound all his own. He is simply one of my favorite songwriters, and why he is not a household word is beyond me. Great songs, great voice, great stories and handsome as all get out. If you are a fan from Maine, you will remember his old band the Moxie Men.....many towns and years later he still comes highly SMAC recommended.

August 1
(Tuesday): Rhiannon Giddens - The Freedom Highway Tour click for details
These days out SMAC favorite seems to be getting the attention she deserves. "Introducing Rhiannon Giddens as an up-and-coming singer" ...well we new she was coming a long time ago!! Giddens is like a musical explosion onstage. Folks took notice of her limitless talents as one of Carolina Chocolate Drops. Fast forward and T-Bone Burnett, the legendary record producer, is asking Giddens whether he could produce her first solo album, the Grammy nominated "Tomorrow Is My Turn,". Oh and did we tell you she is on the hot show Nashville!!??? There is so much to say and yet nothing to say that describes this woman's talent. A talent I believe will be in the history books when they write about our musical decade.

So just see and hear for yourself with this YouTube video. By the way our dear friend and her band mates could go anywhere now.....we are some happy that they still think of us as a worthy stop for their grace.

August 4 (Friday): Support SMAC! click for details
Stone Mountain LIVE Our Annual Event to benefit the one and only Stone Mountain Arts Center! Concert and Auction!
Hosted by Carol Noonan and the Stone Mountain Boys Featuring Duke Levine and Kevin Barry. with Special guests Bluegreass Greats, The Gibson Brothers

If you love us, this is a way to show it!!! Its no secret that SMAC needs a little help now and then. Its not easy to bring music up here all year long. Some shows will sell and some some won't, so you need a safety net for that. Consequently we do a few shows a year that provide that safety net. Not to mention all the improvements we can make with your support. We did so much last year with your help! The music will be amazing....with all these great guys. The award winning Gibson's are like family and the "Boys" including guitar Gods, Duke Levine and Kevin Barry are just not to be missed.

It will be a special night, and lots of special items will be auctioned off too and a live auction hosted by "Nigel Hoggsbottem", aka Mike Miclon. Items like season passes, autographed items, tickets, cool items donated by local businesses...and more...so bring your checkbook and support SMAC. We are here for you and we support many great causes all year long too...we hope that love comes around to us as well. We hope to see all our regulars!!

August 17 (Thursday): Marshall Crenshaw Y Los Straitjackets click for details
OHHHHHHH....we are so psyched for this show!!! Its been way too long since we have hosted those surf style rockers, and we have really wanted to get Marshall C here for a long time. Marshall Crenshaw y Los Straitjackets combines the shared sensibilities of a pop-rock maestro & a band of guitar-wielding masked marauders.

Marshall Crenshaw:
Over the course of a career that's spanned nearly four decades, 13 albums, Grammy and Golden Globe nominations, film and TV appearances (Buddy Holly in "La Bamba") and thousands of performances, Crenshaw's musical output has maintained a consistent fidelity to the qualities of artfulness, craftsmanship and passion, and his efforts have been rewarded with the devotion of a broad and remarkably loyal fan base. A musician's musician.

Los Straitjackets
are the leading practitioners of the lost art of the guitar instrumental. Using the music of The Ventures, The Shadows, Link Wray and Dick Dale as a jumping off point, the band has taken their unique, high energy brand of original rock & roll around the world. Clad in their trademark Lucha Libre Mexican wrestling masks, the “Jackets” have delivered their trademark guitar licks to 16 albums, thousands of concerts and dozens of films and TV shows. Oh, and for this show there will be an emphasis on the great tunes of another favorite, Nick Lowe! We love these guys!

August 24 (Thursday): Secret Sisters click for details
Lydia and Laura Rogers are recognizable as sisters the minute they open their mouths. They float, twist and trade harmonies in ways only siblings can. Hailing from small-town Alabama, the pair started practicing parts as girls in church, and two decades later, their music can be hymn-like: plain but powerful, heartsick and hopeful. They also throw back to secular songs: those of the Everly Brothers, bluegrass creator Bill Monroe and country godfather Hank Williams. In fact, all but two songs on The Secret Sisters' first (self-titled) album were covers of traditionals or traditional country songs. Later albums would show their own songwriting talents, a little darker but still as sweet. Their latest project will be a new record, produced by Brandi Carlile and the Twins. if that is not a seal of approval, I don't know what is! Very happy to finally get them here: Check them out for yerself!

August 31 (Thursday): Enter the Haggis click for details
After I saw these guys, is thought if the celtic super group Altan and rock legend Rush were to have a baby band, it would be Enter the Haggis !!! They are a high energy collision of celtic, rock and world styles. A Canadian world celtic rock band based in Toronto, ETH as their know to their fans, could lay claim to possibly 18 different genres of music. With fiddle, bagpipes, electric guitar, bass and drums, these guys have made their band success one fan, one town, one region at a time, and SMAC is yet another stop for this fun group. Back with their old name but an ever evolving show...the Haggis you know and love, and always full of surprizes !!! Always a sell out and always a great show.

September 1 (Friday): Bruce Hornsby & Sonny Emory Duo click for details
A special show with Bruce and his amazing Noisemaker drummer, Sonny Emory
Bruce Hornsby’s work displays a creative iconoclasm that’s been a constant in the artist’s two-and-a-half decade recording career. His commercial stock soared early on, when “The Way It Is”–the title track of his 1986 debut album–became one of the most popular songs on American radio. Despite his early mainstream successes, Hornsby has pursued a more personal, idiosyncratic musical path, focusing on projects that sparked his creative interest, including collaborations with the Grateful Dead, Spike Lee, Ricky Skaggs, Don Henley, Ornette Coleman, Bob Dylan, Bela Fleck, Bonnie Raitt, Pat Metheny, and Robbie Robertson. Throughout his career Hornsby has maintained the integrity, virtuosity and artistic curiosity that have been hallmarks of his work from the start. His performance will offer a glimpse of a restless spirit who continues to push forward into exciting new musical terrain. A special intimate show with Bruce's drummer Sonny Emory of the Noisemakers And lucky us, we get to see it!! We are very honored he chose our humble hall once again.

September 8
(Friday): Spencer Albee click for details
Portland based and nationally acclaimed singer, songwriter and producer. Since 1995, he has toured internationally, signed multiple record deals and worked with artists ranging from David Bowie to De La Soul with his bands AS FAST AS, Spencer and the School Spirit Mafia, Space versus Speed and Rustic Overtones. Today he can be found playing in support of his 20th studio album “Relentlessly yours,” and curating events like his annual “Beatles Night” at the State Theatre in Portland. Rolling Stone Magazine calls Spencer both “the king of Portland, Maine’s secretly vibrant music scene” and "a 21st century master in the lost art of Beatlesesque hooks.” and he remains the highest selling Maine artist of all time at Bull Moose Music. His six piece live band (that occasionally sounds like 12) includes bassist McCrae Hathaway, drummer/percussionist Andrew Hodgkins, guitarist/keyboardist Scott Mohler and vocalists Renee´Coolbrith and Blythe Armitage. The band is prepping a show special for attendees of SMAC that will be akin to a combination of The Band’s The Last Waltz and Talking Head’s Stop Making Sense, that will range from solo acoustic performance, to a full band dancing in your seats party. WE are happy to welcome Spencer for the first time to our stage. Visit spenceralbee.com for more artist information.

September 15 (Friday): Matthew Sweet click for details
nown for his power pop in the nineties, this Nebraskan native Matthew Sweet delivered a slam dunk with his hit song and album, Girlfriend…a classic break up record. During a career that stretches back to the mid-’80s, Matthew Sweet has never followed trends, though his landmark 1991 album Girlfriend was responsible for starting one—its bone-dry, caterwauling sonics opening up a wild and picturesque new terrain for restless singer/songwriters to inhabit and explore. Now decades later, Sweet releases Tomorrow Forever, his fifth album of new material in this century, the first since 2011’s Modern Art and 14th overall in a recording career spanning more than three decades, is teeming with his signature sounds and songwriting.

September 22 (Friday): Erica Brown and the Bluegrass Connection click for details
Fiddle prodigy Erica was competing at seven, touring at nine and recording at fifteen, when she made her SRT debut with the Old Time Radio Gang. Now her own five piece Bluegrass Band is enjoying great popularity and returns for their annual Bluegrass / Country / Folk hoedown! With Matt Shipman on guitar and vocals, Ken Taylor on bass, Steve Roy on Mandolin and vocals, and Read McNamara on Banjo. Erica was a recipient of a 2006 Maine Arts Commission Traditional Arts Apprenticeship Award and was recognized as a Master Artist by the Maine Arts Commission that same year. Her talent for combining the precision of classical music with the spontaneity of country and bluegrass fiddle makes for a fun-filled performance every time she plays. Performance highlights include opening for Grammy award winning country music superstar Dwight Yoakam, as well as Grammy award winning bluegrass performer Ricky Skaggs and Kentucky Thunder.

"One of the best fiddlers in Maine...The kind of musician who gives musicians a good name." - Darol Anger. We couldn't agree more!

September 29 (Friday): Chris Smither click for details
Honing a synthesis of folk and blues for over 50 years, Chris Smither is truly an American original. Having distilled his own signature sound of blues and folk for over 40 years, Chris Smither is one of the best to ever hit our stage. With profound songs, dazzling guitar skills and his distinct gravelly voice he casts a spell over the audience one song at a time. Says the Chicago Sun Times - "Chris Smither has traveled countless miles with his careworn blend of folk and acoustic blues. His hallmarks include the fingers of an effortless musician, a voice as craggy and deep as the earth, the soul of a philosopher and master poet, and the foot-tapping percussion of a restless wanderer…" Couldn't have said it better myself.

October 2
(Monday): Robert Cray Band click for details
Can't wait to hear the best band in the world. If you haven't seen'em you have to..if you already have, you know you miss'em! Blues guitarist and singer songwriter Robert Cray is a five-time Grammy Award winner and a Blues Hall of Famer of course, but all the accolades in the world will not do justice to his live show. You know I talk about those hand full of artists that I always say you gotta see...this is one of them. Few both play guitar and sing so smoothly and heartfelt and that band is killer. And did I say they are the nicest buncha guys you will ever meet? Come see for yerself. A rare up close and personal concert.

October 19 ( Thursday): Bob Marley click for details
You know'em, you love'm...more than 15 years as a stand-up comic, Maine's own Bob Marley is one of the hottest and most sought after comedians in the country. He has raised more than $12,000 for the Barbara Bush Children's Hospital after setting a new world's record for longest continuous stand-up routine as recognized by the Guinness Book of Records. He has been featured in his own special on Comedy Central, and is one of the few comics to do the complete late night TV circuit: The Late Show with David Letterman, The Tonight Show with Jay Leno, Late Night with Conan O’Brien and The Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson and Craig Kilborn. But all those accolades aside, he is just one of us, and we can't get enough of him. Always a sell out.

October 20 (Friday): Kris Delmhorst & Jeffrey Foucault click for details
with a great Band including Billy Conway (of Morphine) on Drums
Husband and wife singer/songwriters Kris Delmhorst and Jeffrey Foucault rarely perform together as a duo.Bit if its rare SMAC is the best place to find it!

Kris Delmhorst a prolific writer and constant collaborator, grew up in Brooklyn NY. Her musical home is in Boston MA where she cut her teeth on open mics, bar gigs, and subway busking before embarking on her life as an internationally touring songwriter. She has a smokey voice and when she sings she is lost in the song more deeply than most. Burt what might get missed about her obvious talents is just want a great musician she is.
Jeffrey Foucault grew up in Wisconsin and started playing guitar at 17. One of those songwriters who when you discover him, you feel feel deprived of the time you could have spent listening. Compared to the likes of Greg Brown and John Prine, like Kris, a strong Jeffrey has taken, in his own words, ‘the small roads;’ building a brick and mortar independent international touring career of ten studio albums, countless miles and critical accolades with his warm and gritty voice and troubadour style.

Together,
Delmhorst and Foucault live in a small town in western Massachusetts with their daughter who we are sure to hear about on this sweet night of love and music.

October 27
(Friday): Freddy and Francine click for details
Wow...ya know when you hear something that just makes you drop everything and listen....I know no one does that anymore..but I did when I heard these two. They were here in June and brought the house down. Pardon my Irish, but they sing their asses off! Catch them before they are the next big thing! Freddy & Francine is an Americana/Soul duo featuring singer songwriters Lee Ferris and Bianca Caruso. No Depression magazine describes Freddy & Francine as “Americana Soul, complete with tight two-part harmonies, engaging songs that will shoot deep into your heart, and a musical chemistry that is second-to-none in the L.A. Americana scene.” But if me and the critics aren't good enough for ya..... the proof is in the puddin' ... check out this video.

November 10 ( Friday): Alasdair Fraser and Natalie Haas click for details
We cannot get enough of this master Scottish fiddler and his beautuful cellist sidekick. These two together are one of the most moving musical collaborations you will ever see on our stage. The show is fun, the music is stunning and Alasdair is a presence who just makes you feel great to be alive. Natalie is a silent wonder, speaking poetry though her expression and her instrument. A toe tapping night of celtic fiddle music and Scottish story telling. This is SMAC at its best when these two are here.

November 11 (Saturday): Capitol Steps click for details
These folks will have lots of material for election week 2017 after a year with the new regime? They are back, and just in time for more election results! They Put the MOCK in Democracy. Music and political satire by The Capitol Steps, the Washington-based troupe of Congressional staffers turned songwriters. This was one of the first acts I booked when we first opened..it's like having good friends visiting when they are here. And don't we all need a good laugh when it comes to politics these days?

November 17
(Friday): An Evening of Jazz with the Tom Snow Quartet click for details
Jazz Fans Take Notice!!! Thomas Snow, piano Ken Peplowski, saxophone and clarinet Marty Ballou Bass, Les Harris Jr. drums. Encore performace of one of the top ten smac shows evah!!!

If you didn't see this show in May, don't miss your chance again. Maine’s own pianist Tom Snow returns to SMAC as a leader, and this time he’s bringing a few of his friends from the world of Jazz. Our SMAC audiences have heard Tom many times as Jonathan Edwards’ pianist, and you may have also attended SMAC’s sold-out 2013 CD release concert of his fourth CD, “Friends.” On this night, Tom is sharing the stage with jazz giant and NYC-based virtuoso clarinetist, Ken Peplowski, acclaimed Boston bassist, Marty Ballou, and stalwart favorite and Boston “A-lister”, Les Harris, Jr. (drums). If you’ve ever heard Tom perform, you’ll know that he is a musical chameleon and often cross-weaves styles of folk, bluegrass, rock and jazz. Accompanied by this stellar lineup of world-renowned musicians, the sweet sounds of jazz will fill the air at Stone Mountain. We hope you’ll join Tom as he pours his artistry, love, sincerity, and musical communication into this fantastic setting. THIS WILL BE A GREAT SHOW...AGAIN!

November 18 (Saturday): Rosanne Cash click for details
Whether Rosanne had a famous Dad or not, we are sure she would have become the critically acclaimed singer songwriter she is today. Her music weaves easily from country to folk to pop, and her lyrics cut to the core of your heart. One of the country’s pre-eminent singer/songwriters, Rosanne Cash has released 15 albums of extraordinary songs that have earned four GRAMMY Awards and nominations for 11 more, as well as 21 top-40 hits, including 11 No. 1 singles. She is also an author whose four books include the best-selling memoir Composed, which the Chicago Tribune called “one of the best accounts of an American life you’ll likely ever read. Cash’s landmark 2009 album, “The List,” won the Americana Music Album of the Year award. In her latest release,“The River and the Thread,” a collaboration with husband/co-writer/producer and arranger John Leventhal, Cash evokes a kaleidoscopic examination of the geographic, emotional, musical and historic landscape of the American South. The album has received impressive worldwide acclaim and attained the highest debut in the Billboard charts of any of her previous albums. It received 3 Grammy Awards in 2015. On October 11, 2015 she was inducted into the Nashville Songwriters’ Hall of Fame. She is a big time favorite of ours.....come see why it is such an honor to have her grace our stage.

November 24 (Friday): Paula Poundstone click for details
Wooohoooo..she's back again.....our favorite funny girl. An NPR darling, heard on Wait Wait Don't Tell Me, Paula has been making us laugh almostevery year since we have opened. From her comedy specials, to her live shows, she is hysterical, witty, and her improv with the crowd is the highlight of the evening. A quick sell out every time, so get your ticket early!

About Brownfield Historical Society
Brownfield is a special town. We have been blessed to land here. 85% of the town was destroyed in the great fire of 1947 and there is a rich history about the town before the fire, during the fire, and how it has survived. The Historical Society is doing great work to try to archive this rich and sometime forgotten history of a town we are immensely proud to call our home. We always say, SMAC could not ever have worked in any other town!! We are a town of unlikely doing the unlikely. Amazing!!

December 31 (Sunday): Le Vent du Nord click for details
I LOVE this band, and its a perfect way to celebrate the new year happily! Performing traditional Québécois music that is heavily influenced by Celtic music, these guys are better every time I see them. Le Vent du Nord is one of the premier folk bands coming out of Canada today winning multiple awards and accolades from our friends up north. They have a huge and exciting sound using traditional instruments and foot stomping rhythms.....and they even play the hurdi gurdi!! They have a new member too this year, new member fiddler Andre Brunet (of De Temps Antan and Celtic Fiddle Fest). They will all put on a whale of a show and you will leave here smiling and wanting more, like we always do. Showtime is as usual, so you will still have time to get home for your own midnight countdown!!
   
Scheduled Performances for 2018:  
January 27 (Saturday): Paula Cole click for details
Simply one of the best female singers I have ever heard. Songs like "Where have all the Cowboys Gone" and "I Don't Want to Wait" put her on the list of chart busters. But the first time I heard her she was singing back up for Peter Gabriel. When he featured her, it was clear by the hush and then roar of the crowd that she was headed for bigger and better things. Of course her star rose quickly and now we are lucky to be able to present her in our humble hall. Just what we need to warm a January evening. The only cool, will be the styling of her emotionally charged voice singing her own songs of life, love and a philosophy that is all her own. Don't miss it.

April 20
(Friday): Suzy Bogguss click for details
Suzy of course is a big country star, but to us she is like family. Her countless hits and platinum records would assume a big attitude as well. But with Suzy, the only big you get is in the heart department. She is as down home as you can get and her sweet and sultry voice will make you wish the night would never end. Accompanied by always stellar side men, her show is not to be missed. Welcome back Suzy and welcome home!!!

May 18 (Friday): Séan McCann (of the Great Big Sea) click for details
Everyone loved him when he was here in June on our Song Stage. Its not easy to leave a sure thing...but Séan McCann has started a new journey after his departure from the popular Canadian band Great Big Sea. Someone referred to him as a "shantyman", but I think he is a true folkie in every sense of that category. Thoroughly entertaining and audience engaging….Great songs, and a great voice is the new "great" in his future, and we are happy to be on this trip with him. Check this nice song out.
