JON MCAULIFFE

October 21

" . . . McAuliffe's Old School Moderne is medicine for the soul and ears . . . McAuliffe is uncannily adept at translating emotions and humor in a variety of nifty Americana roots styles...He's married fine singer-songwriter sensibility to his more rocking, edgier side. He throws in some humor, some barrelhouse, some snake rattle and plenty of electric guitar "
—Bill Copeland, Music News

JULIE DOUGHERTY

December 2

"I’ve travelled much of the country singing Irish music, original folk-rock music, country-rock music...and made several trips to Nashville, where I placed two original songs with two major publishing firms and almost moved there in the early 90’s....but my roots are in New England!"  Julie Dougherty

"I have been listening to.. Julie Dougherty for two weeks to the exclusion of all other music. In twenty five years in the music business I know of no other singer like her... The songs are beautifully crafted. The musicianship is superb...an extraordinary accomplishment from a one-of-a-kind artist."
