July 16 – Anela Lauren on Celtic harp. Anela Lauren is not your average harpist if there even is such a thing. She is a classically trained pianist from a very young age but at Wesleyan University, Anela discovered the joys of jazz and improvisation and playing by ear. Since then, she has found her calling in adapting a wide range of music to the harp; particularly contemporary folk, world, and rock. Anela also brings her own elegant touch to classical, traditional and Celtic tunes.
July 23 – David Hinske –Singer/songwriter ranging from folk ballads to rock. His album won the Southwest Indy Artist Album of the Year 2016 and the song Small Dark Bar won Best Rock Song. Recommended if you like James Taylor, Neil Young, or Paul Simon.
July 30 – Tony Mason – A singer and songwriter, Mason has played his way through New York City basket houses (venues where unpaid performers would pass around a basket at the end of each set and hope to make some money). He has also toured New England clubs and schools as well as the college coffee house circuit. Tony brings his own brand of storytelling and song to the stage.

Aug. 20 – Angela Pope – Angela Pope is a singer-songwriter currently residing in Taos, NM. Originally from Portland Oregon, she’s been writing and performing for more than 20 years. Pope brings a raspy lyrical bent to her rhythm-guitar-driven songs she writes with depth and feeling. In 1997, she formed the band “Pope” and released her first full-length CD “Railroad Dance.” In 1999, Pope wrote “Walking Through Midnight” which was featured in the Independent Short Film “Personals” by Hansell Productions. Pope was one of 10 bands chosen out of hundreds to perform at The International Independent Film Festival in New York. After the band parted ways, Angela teamed up with seasoned musician Alan Alexander III. Their collaboration produced several songs that were recorded in Angela’s studio and the duo began performing in Portland. The writing partnership lasted for 10 years and whenever possible, they make time to perform together. Angela’s time spent in Taos inspired her into a whirlwind of songwriting.
