Featured Act: Gadan
Photo of Gadan
 

Gadan is the new project created by four experienced musicians from Italy playing Celtic and Old Timey music, with the occasional departure into regional folk ballads of Northern Italy. They deliver a powerful repertoire with a sound comparable to new-trad acts such as Talisk, WeBanjo3, The East Pointers or Rura. The band explores the deep connection between emigrating people from different part of Europe, such as Ireland and Italy, to the United States, through a reinvigorating and modern musical approach. Fiddle, banjos, mandolin, bouzouki and guitar for a “strings-only” sound with a hint of electronics, and a powerful rhythmic pulse.

Opening Act: Fiona Tyndall & Friends
Photo of Fiona Tyndall & Friends
 

Our opener Fiona Tyndall grew up in County Clare Ireland. She spent her childhood summers at a residential school run by her parents to steep its students in Irish music, language, and culture. She sings with beautiful simplicity the songs she learned through this experience, and those that her love of this music led her to pick up later in life.

The Folk Project Members Halloween Show
Photo of The Folk Project Members Halloween Show
 
Halloween is a hallowed holiday here at The Folk Project, and to celebrate we present an absolutely fun and wonderful party and a concert that’s always memorable. Members and the audience dress up and The Folk Project’s Official Halloween Judges Panel will award valuable and invaluable prizes for the songs, recitations, costumes and bribes that they feel worthy of recognition. The desserts are extra special on this special night and included in the admission price. And, yes, we’ll serve plenty of boos.
To sign up to sing, email openstage@folkproject.org.
Featured Act: Don White
Photo of Don White
 

Some of you may remember Don White from his split-bill appearance with Christine Lavin in 2014. Don is a blue collar intellectual and a true old-school troubadour. He is a comedian-author-singer-songwriter-raconteur, whose introductions to his songs are wonderfully crafted tales that are as hilarious as the songs themselves. He is such a beloved character in his hometown of Lynn, MA that last year the mayor proclaimed an official Don White Day and gave him the key to the city.

Opening Act: Rupert Wates

Rupert Wates is a transplanted Englishman who writes, sings, and plays witty wordy and quirky songs on unlikely subjects. A writer who makes you think while he entertains.

Photo of Susan Werner
 

It is rare performer who covers all the bases the way Susan Werner does. She scores off the chart in intelligence, heart, instrumental and vocal chops, and enough charisma to make Radio City Music Hall feel like your local coffeehouse. She writes with the stylish craft of a Cole Porter and the spirituality of a Bob Franke. She plays sophisticated, effortless and perfectly tasteful accompaniment on piano and guitar. And she makes you feel a better person for having spent the evening in her presence.

An evening of helpless hilarity with two very funny acts.

Featured Act: The Loose Canons
Photo of The Loose Canons
 

Perhaps the very name of The Loose Canons will give you some insight to their approach to music. This 11-member choral group sings intricate vocal arrangements of folk songs, do wop, classical favorites as well as audience participatory pieces. But they specialize in parodies, satire, novelty songs, and other bits of musical tomfoolery.

Opening Act: Carla Ulbrich
Photo of Carla Ulbrich
 

Carla Ulbrich is a comical singer-songwriter and guitarist with a rapier wit and a keen observational eye for the absurdities of everyday living. With a love of wordplay and some pretty fancy guitar chops, she creates songs on topics as diverse as wedgies, Waffle House, Klingons, and how rich she would be if she had the copyright on the ‘F’ Word. She is a longtime favorite on the Dr. Demento show, and puts on an utterly hilarious live show.

NOTE: For those of you unfamiliar to Carla, this show will serve as a teaser for her upcoming Feature Set at the Troubadour coming up on December 30th.

Chorus Song Night
Photo of Chorus Song Night
 

Chorus Song Night is an evening of songs for you, the audience to sing.  A panel of four experienced songleaders will offer songs with choruses, some familiar, and others easily picked up, and songs that most folkies know already to one extent or the other.  We do this show unamplified so you can hear yourselves and each other as well as the songleaders on stage.  Raise your voices.  Add your harmonies.  If you like to sing, this is the night for you.

The songleaders:

  • Wendy Britton: Wendy Britton performed with The Britton Family as a kid, later touring the country with her sister, Ellen, as The Britton Sisters. Currently, she enjoys leading audiences in singing old favorites, such as Circle Game , Where Have All The Flowers Gone , and Blowing In The Wind, and others of that era.
  • Scott Rovner:  A veteran of more than 3 decades as a songleader and stage master at the fire circles at the Philadelphia Folk Festival campground.
  • Bob McParland: A singer-songwriter that still retains a great repertoire from the Crosby, Stills, Mitchell, and Garfunkel era and traditional folk songs.
  • Mike Agranoff:  Program Chairman of the Troubadour with a vast repertoire of chorus songs of all sorts, some original, some gleaned, some humorous, and some serious.

When not serving as Nanci Griffith’s backup band, The Kennedys have been joyfully rocking the folk world with their own unique brand of high-energy performance. It’s more than the powerful close-harmony singing. It’s more than the hot guitar work. It’s more than the driving rhythms and power chords. It’s the obvious chemistry between Pete and Maura Kennedy that is so charming and so contagious that the listener can’t help but grin and join in their fun.

The Kennedys with Opening Act TBD
Featured Act: The Kennedys
 

When not serving as Nanci Griffith’s backup band, The Kennedys have been joyfully rocking the folk world with their own unique brand of high-energy performance. It’s more than the powerful close-harmony singing. It’s more than the hot guitar work. It’s more than the driving rhythms and power chords. It’s the obvious chemistry between Pete and Maura Kennedy that is so charming and so contagious that the listener can’t help but grin and join in their fun.

Featured Act: Gadan
Photo of Gadan
 

Gadan is the new project created by four experienced musicians from Italy playing Celtic and Old Timey music, with the occasional departure into regional folk ballads of Northern Italy. They deliver a powerful repertoire with a sound comparable to new-trad acts such as Talisk, WeBanjo3, The East Pointers or Rura. The band explores the deep connection between emigrating people from different part of Europe, such as Ireland and Italy, to the United States, through a reinvigorating and modern musical approach. Fiddle, banjos, mandolin, bouzouki and guitar for a “strings-only” sound with a hint of electronics, and a powerful rhythmic pulse.

Opening Act: Fiona Tyndall & Friends
Photo of Fiona Tyndall & Friends
 

Our opener Fiona Tyndall grew up in County Clare Ireland. She spent her childhood summers at a residential school run by her parents to steep its students in Irish music, language, and culture. She sings with beautiful simplicity the songs she learned through this experience, and those that her love of this music led her to pick up later in life.

The Folk Project Members Halloween Show
Photo of The Folk Project Members Halloween Show
 
Halloween is a hallowed holiday here at The Folk Project, and to celebrate we present an absolutely fun and wonderful party and a concert that’s always memorable. Members and the audience dress up and The Folk Project’s Official Halloween Judges Panel will award valuable and invaluable prizes for the songs, recitations, costumes and bribes that they feel worthy of recognition. The desserts are extra special on this special night and included in the admission price. And, yes, we’ll serve plenty of boos.
To sign up to sing, email openstage@folkproject.org.
Featured Act: Don White
Photo of Don White
 

Some of you may remember Don White from his split-bill appearance with Christine Lavin in 2014. Don is a blue collar intellectual and a true old-school troubadour. He is a comedian-author-singer-songwriter-raconteur, whose introductions to his songs are wonderfully crafted tales that are as hilarious as the songs themselves. He is such a beloved character in his hometown of Lynn, MA that last year the mayor proclaimed an official Don White Day and gave him the key to the city.

Opening Act: Rupert Wates

Rupert Wates is a transplanted Englishman who writes, sings, and plays witty wordy and quirky songs on unlikely subjects. A writer who makes you think while he entertains.

Photo of Susan Werner
 

It is rare performer who covers all the bases the way Susan Werner does. She scores off the chart in intelligence, heart, instrumental and vocal chops, and enough charisma to make Radio City Music Hall feel like your local coffeehouse. She writes with the stylish craft of a Cole Porter and the spirituality of a Bob Franke. She plays sophisticated, effortless and perfectly tasteful accompaniment on piano and guitar. And she makes you feel a better person for having spent the evening in her presence.

An evening of helpless hilarity with two very funny acts.

Featured Act: The Loose Canons
Photo of The Loose Canons
 

Perhaps the very name of The Loose Canons will give you some insight to their approach to music. This 11-member choral group sings intricate vocal arrangements of folk songs, do wop, classical favorites as well as audience participatory pieces. But they specialize in parodies, satire, novelty songs, and other bits of musical tomfoolery.

Opening Act: Carla Ulbrich
Photo of Carla Ulbrich
 

Carla Ulbrich is a comical singer-songwriter and guitarist with a rapier wit and a keen observational eye for the absurdities of everyday living. With a love of wordplay and some pretty fancy guitar chops, she creates songs on topics as diverse as wedgies, Waffle House, Klingons, and how rich she would be if she had the copyright on the ‘F’ Word. She is a longtime favorite on the Dr. Demento show, and puts on an utterly hilarious live show.

NOTE: For those of you unfamiliar to Carla, this show will serve as a teaser for her upcoming Feature Set at the Troubadour coming up on December 30th.

Chorus Song Night
Photo of Chorus Song Night
 

Chorus Song Night is an evening of songs for you, the audience to sing.  A panel of four experienced songleaders will offer songs with choruses, some familiar, and others easily picked up, and songs that most folkies know already to one extent or the other.  We do this show unamplified so you can hear yourselves and each other as well as the songleaders on stage.  Raise your voices.  Add your harmonies.  If you like to sing, this is the night for you.

The songleaders:

  • Wendy Britton: Wendy Britton performed with The Britton Family as a kid, later touring the country with her sister, Ellen, as The Britton Sisters. Currently, she enjoys leading audiences in singing old favorites, such as Circle Game , Where Have All The Flowers Gone , and Blowing In The Wind, and others of that era.
  • Scott Rovner:  A veteran of more than 3 decades as a songleader and stage master at the fire circles at the Philadelphia Folk Festival campground.
  • Bob McParland: A singer-songwriter that still retains a great repertoire from the Crosby, Stills, Mitchell, and Garfunkel era and traditional folk songs.
  • Mike Agranoff:  Program Chairman of the Troubadour with a vast repertoire of chorus songs of all sorts, some original, some gleaned, some humorous, and some serious.

The Folk Project will present our annual Holiday Show to benefit our gracious host, the Morristown Unitarian Universalist Fellowship, at Troubadour on December 16, beginning with caroling at 7:00 pm.
