Charles River Reprobates featuring Danielle Miraglia, Ed Scheer, Jimmy Ryan, Jesse Williams, Bob Enik

The Charles River Reprobates are an all-star super group, playing good time down home roots music that crosses genres from Bluegrass, Country and Gospel to Blues, Soul and Rock ‘n’ Roll. Guitarist Danielle Miraglia is nationally known for her soaring voice, deft acoustic fingerpicking and soulful songwriting. Mandolin virtuoso Jimmy Ryan is New England’s acknowledged master at his craft, blending American and world influences into his own unique style. In the rhythm section are Jesse Williams (bassist with Al Kooper and Duke Robillard) And anchoring it all is Love Dogs’ vocalist and drummer Ed Scheer, who’s encyclopedic repertoire is equaled only by his big smile and ability to entertain. This special night of music is not to be missed.


Thurs Feb 12    Michelle “Evil Gal” Willson


Michelle is a force of nature — an emotional ball of talent that inspires with her original songs but also takes you on a journey through what she calls “the lost music” of vintage soul/R&B legends like Dinah Washington, Ruth Brown and Etta James.


“it is impossible not to be moved by this performer…with her lush, sultry & robust voice, Willson can get a rise out of a stone statue.”
