Bethany is a Vermont singer/songwriter whose music captures some of the timeless concepts surrounding love and loss through the eyes of a young adult. Her passion for performing means you’re as likely to see her playing at a coffee house or local bar as you are at a benefit, a fair, or a grocery store. She is known for her soulful, fluttering melodies that have often been compared to Joni Mitchell.
The Shane Murley Band

From bars to private parties and weddings, he and his band have been entertaining the local scene, all the while. If you love the genres Americana - Country-Folk - Alternative Rock with a twist of Soul- Funk, then you'll love many of the songs and melodies this band is supplying

Kindness Gathering 2019 Photos
Our special summer evening will be back following two years of COVID.
July 24th at 7:00 pm! Open to all; free! Let's celebrate kindness ...
In lieu of all the sadness and pain in the world these days, once again, I just feel an intense need to do something positive, uplifting ... abut being kind to one another. (Yes, I know - we should be kind 24/7, 12 months a year.) As many of you know, I always celebrate by birthday with World Kindness Day. Today, I'm announcing our second "Kindness Gathering." It'll be located in the field behind The Paddle. A vigil, of sorts, with music and laughter and kindness. Please join me for a celebration of our better angels. I'll post more details in early June. Please mark your calendars and save the evening of Sunday, 7/24th. Parents, bring your kids - both the two-legged and four-legged ones. This is a non-political event. It's a kindness event. Thanks for reading, Mandy
