Rachel Marie follows in a tradition of unapologetically assertive women folksingers, with songs that hearken to "overstuffed lines of Tori Amos, philosophical turn of Indigo Girls, and lilting vocals like Joni Mitchell."

November 2 . Meaghan Casey
Meaghan Casey is a singer-songwriter based out of the southern coast of Massachusetts. Her influences are of a wide range, from having played violin at a young age to playing Fender Strat in a teenage punk band. These days her playing has transcended to gritty, heartfelt folk songs on both banjo and acoustic guitar. Her premier full-length album is set to be released in 2019, which precedes her EP "Migration". 

December 7 . Three at Home
Songwriters Dann Russo and Mary Casiello have been writing and playing music for more than 10 years each and in 2017 decided to combine their forces. Their harmony-driven pop-rock incorporates intelligent and honest lyrics, that is infectious in their live performances. Their EP "Perfectly Unclear", released in June of 2018, runs deep into the rock and roll territory of bands like The Black Keys, while still maintaining a focus on the tight harmonies that they are known for in their acoustic performances.

January 4 . Matt Hannigan
Matt Hannigan is an acoustic fingerstyle guitarist from the Boston area. Inspired by instrumental tunes of Andy McKee, Tommy Emmanuel, and Michael Hedges, Matt pulls from a wide range of genres to compose and arrange multifaceted music for solo guitar. 

All are welcome to come and enjoy the music. $5 at the door. Free to HCA members.
