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.

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.

Join us in welcoming Whetherman this Sunday at 6pm!  **Please note we have a limited pub menu available on Sundays!**   Take one seasoned, bucolic folk artist and mix him with the likes of Ray Lamontagne, crossed with all the poetic feels of Bob Dylan’s early recordings. You might find someone that’s been working tirelessly for the last decade, rediscovering himself and expanding the conversation of Americana.   Enter Whetherman, the music of 33 year-old independent troubadour Nicholas Williams, who has self-produced eight full-length albums since beginning the project in 2007. By artfully bridging the gap between folk, blues, country, soul, and bluegrass with a timeless tinge, Williams is earning his keep amongst the vast pool of independent American talent in the Americana scene. His songs aim at the heart center, emboldened by the moral struggles of modern man with earnest and poetic lyrics that accompany infectiously melodic vocals, under the current of percussive guitar and rolling harmonica. These factors all contribute towards an effervescent, rustic sound that is all his own.  Whetherman has been performing 150 shows a year in over 40 states across the US since 2011, as well as touring throughout the UK and Western Europe. Living on the road for the better part of the last five years, his surroundings have secured songs of poetry, with a resonance of nature, and Williams has remained completely independent from labels and management, having taken a grassroots approach to spread the songs he's created.   You can find Whetherman on iTunes and Bandcamp, as well as streaming on Pandora Radio and Spotify.

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)

Charlie Janeway is a young guitarist living in Keene who plays acoustic, country blues music inspired by Mississippi John Hurt, Bob Dylan, and others. After narrowly escaping a run in with the devil at the crossroads of the Marcy and Haystack trails, he booked it to the west coast, where he honed his sound in college basements and uninterested frats for four years. Now he’s back in the ‘daks and ready to share a mix of fingerpicking folk and originals at the Deer’s Head Inn on June 24th.
