Called "one of New England's best songwriters" by The Boston Globe, Roslindale's own Terry Kitchen creates songs that are portraits of ordinary people and emotions, captured with extraordinary compassion, honesty and humor. He's been performing on folk stages across the country since the 1990s, releasing a dozen albums filled with literate musical storytelling, supple guitar playing and distinctive, intimate vocals. His 2020 CD Next Time We Meet reached #5 on the national Folk-DJ chart, and his songs have won the Mid-Atlantic and USA Song Contests and been runner-up in the John Lennon Song Contest. In the 1980s he was the leader of the groundbreaking Boston band Loose Ties, whose experiences he recounts in his novel Next Big Thing, called "a great debut novel" by The San Francisco Book Review. More on Terry at terrykitchen.com.

Janet Feld has been a regular on the New England folk scene for more than three decades, has toured all over the nation and in Europe. She is a guitarist who uses a variety of styles, blending folk, pop and country. She is also celebrating 20 years of teaching at The Passim School of Music as well as being the Chief Music Officer at Janet's Planet: Music Lessons for Humanoids, Inc. Janet's Planet offers private lessons, weekend guitar retreats and music-focused international vacation tours. She also recently released her 5th CD, Messy Beauty, and is having a blast sharing it with the world. She is also part of the trio The Secret Sauce with Esther Friedman and Jackie Damsky. More at janetsplanetmusic.com and www.thesecretsaucemusic.com

Esther Friedman is a Boston-based acoustic singer and songwriter. She started writing songs in the mid-nineties after moving to the area from Cleveland, for Lesley University's Expressive Art Therapy Master's Degree program. Inspired by buskers who braved street corners and T-stops she started writing and performing. Today, she provides therapy in a private practice, counseling those in recovery from trauma, while performing and songwriting as much as humanly possible. She is also part of the trio The Secret Sauce with Janet Feld and Jackie Damsky. More at www.thesecretsaucemusic.com.

Jackie Damsky was originally trained as a classical violinist, and has developed a unique improvisational style over a range of genres including jazz, folk, blues, acoustic rock, and popular music. From halls and clubs to the recording studio, Jackie’s warm and sweet, passionate and evocative violin playing leaves listeners profoundly affected and deeply moved. Jackie weaves a harmonic tapestry with her fellow musicians, adding depth, color, richness… and a little magic. She is also part of the trio The Secret Sauce with Janet Feld and Esther Friedman. More at www.thesecretsaucemusic.com.
