Bucci is a singer-songwriter based out of Burlington, VT. She is a member of the Blues/Soul/R&B group, Nina's Brew, as a vocalist and rhythm guitar player. Born and raised in Plattsburgh, NY, Giovanina has spent the latter half of her life attempting to appease a relentless appetite for travel and exploration. Having soaked up a diverse catalog of influences, culture, and conversations along the way--her style is nothing short of eclectic. Rooted in blues, soul, reggae, and hip hop, she writes about the intimate experiences that have shaped her as a human and as a songstress. A live performance quickly indicates how deeply Giovanina feels the songs, where and whom they were inspired by, and the stories behind them. She has released two solo albums, The Road Home in 2013 and A Bit of Alright in 2015. Nina's Brew released their first EP, Don't Tell Mama, in 2018 and are touring heavily throughout the northeast.

Tim Hartnett and Julie Canepa have been performing throughout the North Country and Vermont as an acoustic duet since 2009. Hartnett is an established member of the North Country music scene, and his musical abilities and experience along with Canepa’s theatre background form the basis for the singing/songwriting team.
Their varied repertoire includes music from roots (Johnny Cash, Hank Williams, Bob Dylan), classic pop (Beatles, Linda Ronstadt, Bonnie Raitt) and indie/alternative (White Stripes, Eddie Vedder, Amy Winehouse). They also perform original songs that explore the important issues of our times, including but not limited to love, dogs and layoffs. Vocal harmonies are a distinctive part of their sound and are backed by Tim’s guitar playing and Julie’s percussion and occasional kazoo! In 2012 Julie and Tim added an electric bassist and drummer and have played extensively under the band name Oh!Betty. Though most of their engagements these days are with the full band, Julie and Tim continue to play several dates a year as a duet.
Music is 6-8pm.

Brett Hughes has been a long-time mainstay (and champion!) of Burlington, Vermont’s dynamic music scene as a songwriter, singer, guitar player, band leader and engineer/producer. He hosted the beloved Honky Tonk Tuesday residency at Burlington’s Radio Bean for over ten years, and took the show on the road to Bonnaroo with Mike Gordon (Phish) as Ramble Dove. Along the way he won a regional Emmy Award for composition, fronted or has been part of several seminal Vermont-based bands, and recorded and played on projects with Eugene Hutz (Gogol Bordello), The Barr Brothers’ project Surprise Me Mr. Davis, NOLA’s Duke Aeroplane & The Wrong Numbers and many local artists. He spent much of 2017 touring with Nashville-based Shannon McNally, who has made her records with Charlie Sexton (Bob Dylan’s band leader), Dr. John, the late Jim Dickinson (Rolling Stones, North Mississippi All-Stars) and legendary songwriter Rodney Crowell. Brett's debut album, Maybe I Will, was recorded at Nashville’s Alex The Great Studio with producer Brad Jones and is due for release this fall.
Please note we have a limited pub menu on Sunday nights.

The weather has cooled down but Long Lake musician Alex Smith will be heating up the Deer’s Head stage this Thursday 7/12!
Alex Smith's music strives first and foremost to echo the people and culture of this area. He builds songs from a blend of traditional folk harmony and strikingly modern lyrics, confronting today's most pressing issues with a style of honest and accurate observation often compared to songwriters Stan Rogers and Jason Isbell. His stories draw on the triumphs and hardships of friends, relatives, and neighbors near and far. Smith is truly a “working musician,” playing nearly 200 a shows a year.
"With a voice as deep and dark as an Irish Stout, and acoustic arrangements that wind and curve as if following the course and contour of a river, Alex Smith exemplifies our cultural ideal of what a folk singer should be." - Aarik Danielsen, Columbia Tribune (Columbia, MO)
You don’t want to miss this one! Music starts at 7pm. Reservations are encouraged.
