Ch'Chunk bills itself as a band with a modern take on classic gypsy swing.  The name originates from the particular rhythmic sound and strum associated with swing music.   It has a totally unique sound, and some really special instrumentalists; not to be missed!  Band members are:


Jack Dwyer   -   guitar and vocals

Ian Hamel  -   tenor guitar and vocals

Hannah Elliot  -   clarinet and vocals

Karim Sumun  -   bass guitar,

Chris Trevethan  -   drums and washboard. 

Mama's Marmalade  is a Northampton MA-based, newgrass band. Their fresh take on traditional American music transforms the conventional bluegrass experience into a raucus barnyard party that refuses to let you sit. Since their formation in 2014, the five piece string band has been fusing diverse musical backgrounds into a sound that bursts at the seams with energy, exuding a pure joy for creating music. Mamma’s honest lyrics and warm, acoustic tones invite listeners back to a time when wooden instruments and sweet vocal harmonies captivated the hearts of America. Experimenting with intricate instrumentals and lively covers, their music brings the genre to new and unexpected places
