Costa Rica born Dean Stevens has been delighting audiences of all ages throughout the Americas for the past thirty years. An exuberant performer of distinctive style and wit, he combines an intricate, self-taught guitar style with a versatile and expressive singing voice. He has established himself as a formidable creator and interpreter of songs in both English and Spanish, exploring a wide variety of personal and social topics that celebrate the Earth while annoying the narrow minded.

“Dean Stevens will inspire you.”-Pete Seeger.
Award-winning Boston contemporary folk singer/songwriter (and now novelist) Terry Kitchen’s songs are portraits of ordinary people and emotions, captured with extraordinary compassion, honesty and humor. He has released ten CDs of original music since the 1990s, and his songs have won the Mid-Atlantic and USA Song Contests and been runner-up in the John Lennon Songwriting Contest. His new novel Next Big Thing, called “a great debut novel” by the San Francisco Book Review, is set in the 1980s Boston music scene, when Kitchen’s own group Loose Ties was engaged in a nightly battle for existence and glory.

Camden, Maine’s David Dodson never ceases to amaze, inspire and delight.

His CDs include Weasel Rhythm and Goldenrod.
