Oak Bluffs is a Cape Cod town located on Martha's Vineyard in Massachusetts. The Town of Oak Bluffs was founded as Cottage City in 1880. In 1907 the name was changed because of the fast growing population and the resort needed to recognize that is was not a "Cottage City" any more.
Oak Bluffs is home to the Flying Horses Carousel which is the nation's oldest operating carousel. The carousel is one of two known carousels built by Charles W.F. Dare in 1876.
In the center of town there are hundreds of imaginative and colorful gingerbread cottages. They are the most perfectly preserved collection of Carpenter Gothic style architecture in the world!

I will be opening for Bill Staines - Tickets are $20, to benefit the Historical Society, and may be purchased at the Historical Society office. 8 Adams Street Adams Academy Bldg. Quincy, MA 02169 617-773-1144 http://quincyhistory.org/ From the Quincy Historical Society regarding the show - As part of our American Music Series, legendary troubadour Bill Staines will offer an evening of his own songs, traditional and modern classics of the folk tradition, story-telling and fine guitar playing. Bill encapsulates an entire era of American culture in his life and music. A Massachusetts native, as a teenager he participated in the great folk music revival of the 1960s and performed at the fabled Club 47 in Harvard Square. Since the 1970s, when the Boston Phoenix declared him “simply Boston’s best performer,” Bill has perennially been one of the most popular and in-demand performers on the folk circuit. He continues to travel thousands of miles and perform more than 200 concerts annually. His dates this fall, for instance, take him to Oregon, California, Pennsylvania, various points in between and, of course, Quincy. As a singer-songwriter, Bill now brings all his experience both to his performances, which are full of charm and humor, and his compositions. The Austin American Statesman describes them as “pensive, probing narratives made especially memorable by their ability to translate the common details of common lives into songs of uncommon eloquence and beauty.” The Associated Press says, “Staines is one of the best songwriters in music today, penning lyrics that evoke a sense of place and a generous spirit.” Bill’s songs have been recorded by scores of other artists, including Peter, Paul and Mary, Nanci Griffith, Liam Clancy and Tommy Makem, and Jerry Jeff Walker. In the words of another legendary figure of American music, David Amram, Bill is “a modern day Stephen Foster . . . his songs will be around a hundred years from now.” Tickets are $20, to benefit the Historical Society, and may be purchased at the Historical Society office. Please join us for an evening of Americana performed with winning charm and humor.

For Lesa Bezo, The Fawns is a nice place to be. Its the home where her songs are brought to life by four of her close friends. Over the years, both the friends and the songs have grown. The band has used different approaches to present Bezo's compositions. Their first record, "Smiling", eased its way along with gentle atmospheric americana interrupted by occasional indie rock explosions and dark dirges. Their next album, "A Nice Place to Be", found the Fawns adding some more pop and pep to the numbers, going from twangle-pop to jangle-pop. Now, ten years later, they are releasing their latest, "Goodnight, Spacegirl", which has more muscle and grit, with feedbacked guitars and psychedelic break-downs added to the mix.Ten years is a long time to spend between albums. Bezo carefully cultivates her compositions. She nourishes and pampers while the band arranges and rearranges. Through the years the songs are given time to develop and grow until they are perfectly ripe and ready to be bottled.If you've been to a show or two in the area, or you've bought some music around these parts, you've likely run into a Fawn in one way or another. You might know Henning Ohlenbusch from his band Gentle Hen (aka School for the Dead), his solo work, Polaris, the Mark Mulcahy Band, The Aloha Steamtrain, or the dozens of albums he's produced for Rub Wrongways Records. You might know Brian Marchese from his drumming in the Figments, Haunt, Lo fine, and countless other bands (one-offs and decade spanning projects). Maybe you know his band Sitting Next To Brian or you've been to one of the many fundraising tribute nights he's put on. You've seen Max Germer playing bass for Winterpills, and Spanish for Hitchhiking, and so many more over the years (The Maggies, Stephen Kellogg, The Nields). You've also seen his artwork on album covers and concert posters for decades. You might have seen a clip of Ken Maiuri playing in Palm Springs with the B-52s or on the Tonight Show with the Young at Heart Chorus or on stage with King Radio, The Mammals, Mike and Ruthy and way too many more to list, including his own band, Ribboncandy. And besides hearing or seeing Lesa Bezo in the Fawns, you may have discovered her through a tribute album that friends and fans made for her a few years back. This twenty-two track, double album, is entitled, Friends: A tribute to the Songs of Lesa Bezo. Its a testament to her place in the history of Pioneer Valley music. The new album, "Goodnight, Spacegirl", was recorded at Spirithouse Studios and Rub Wrongways Records in Northampton and mastered by Alex Saltz in New York. In their words: "Our new album is called Goodnight, Spacegirl. Were releasing it in four ways: Streaming, MP3, Compact Disc, and Vinyl. Yes, vinyl. We believe that music is awesome no matter how you listen to it, but we also really wanted to create something that had a physical and permanent manifestation."
