Starring Asher Kai, Luke Molina, Old Milk Mooney, & Captain Vampire

Asher Kai is a non-binary folk singer-songwriter based in South Windsor, Connecticut. Their music, spanning sub-genres of folk- such as new wave or "nu" folk, country folk, and alternative folk- encapsulates their inner world, projecting the way she experiences everything into an immersive experience for the listener. Both her acoustic live shows and self-taught studio recordings pull you into her world. With a voice that has been described as "haunting", they may tug at your heart strings with every pluck of their guitar strings.

Old Milk Mooney brings a classic, heartfelt folk experience to the stage that leaves a mark on anyone's soul. His songs are expressions of his own self reflections and past battles, chosen to be shared with an audience that could stand to shed a tear and hug their neighbor. He has been releasing music online since 2021, and playing live music both as a solo artist and as a member of the band 'Mother Juniper'. One thing's for certain: a warm voice and friendly face bring the room together.

Beginning as a solo recording project, Captain Vampire is now known in the the Boston DIY scene for blistering performances, powerful vocals, and personal lyricism. Their music centers historical topics as well as contemporary social issues and personal experiences, and is available through all major digital platforms.

A tasteful combination of an old-school sound with exciting new flare. Luke covers artists like Johnny Cash, Led Zeppelin, Muddy Waters, Doc Watson, and Hot Tuna. He reaches down from the soul of the delta and is deeply inspired by the heart of the blues to influence numerous covers from Reggae to R&B with that far-out bluesy sound. His fingerpicking style fills out enough punch to stand prominently in an energetic event or sweetly sift through a mellow occasion.
