Part of the
Weekend Concert Series
Our weekend concert series showcases a culturally diverse mix of musical genres in a seated, listening room environment.
During mid-June of 2018, some of New England’s most soulful performers will be touring Maine together in a “Showcase of Women Songwriters”. On board for this exciting event are Lynn Deeves, Colleen Sexton, and Trina Hamlin.
With a rich, powerful voice, Trina Hamlin reveals a rare confluence of midwestern innocence, contemplative focus and raw passion with a disarmingly sharp wit. She seamlessly moves from guitar to piano to self-accompaniment on harmonica, leaving many who witness her live performance wondering what she Can’t do! Trina tours full-time throughout the U.S. and Europe, with her trademark driving, rhythmic, blues and rock-infused songs/grooves. With a degree in professional music from Berklee College in Boston, she has written and co-produced 5 solo albums and performed at the Newport Folk Festival in the company of Ani Difranco, Dar Williams and the Indigo Girls. She has been a guest on “Late Night with Conan O’Brien and her music has been featured on popular television shows on the WB, Lifetime, CBS, ABC and MTV. Trina has shared stages with Taj Mahal, Charlie Musslewhite, John Hiatt and Rickie Lee Jones, to name a few.
Colleen Sexton migrated to New England from Syracuse, NY to attend law school, but instead quickly discovered the fertile Boston singer-songwriter scene. She stayed in law school two days, later touring the Eastern US and Canada. Colleen has engaged listeners in clubs, coffeehouses, colleges and festivals. Her CD Greatest Find (Accord Music Group/Distributed nationally by Telarc) features guest appearances by Martin Sexton, Cliff Eberhardt, and Janis Ian. Sexton independently released Colleen Sexton LIVE (Crescent Records), a highly-acclaimed live recording illustrating her range, versatility and ability to connect with an audience. Colleen’s debut CD, Step Outside, garnered two Boston Music Award nominations (1999), putting her among the elite of Boston songwriters. Her song ‘Dear Arlene’ appears on the Respond compilation CD, which Billboard Magazine’s editor named the number one album of 1999.
Maine singer-songwriter, multi-instrumentalist Lynn Deeves honed her stage skills on the New England high energy, rock club circuit of the 1980’s and 90’s. Her soulful vocals and easeful presence have captivated audiences around the Northeast and beyond. Deeves has released 3 independent CD’s and collaborated on a 4th with Maine songwriting trio “under the song tree,”along with notable Maine performers Anni Clark and Dan Merrill. Lynn has shared stages with Cheryl Wheeler, Ellis Paul, Ferron, Catie Curtis, America and many others. Portland Press Herald says of her live show “…5-star stage presence…this gals’ got a set of pipes…”). Deeves was recently selected to contribute a track to the “Maine Pink Album,”celebrating the 26 greatest women recording artists in Maine, a benefit compilation for the Maine Breast Cancer Coalition.
