    Amy Tee is one of the busiest comedians in the curcuit today. Charming and playful, this winning combination provides a twisted dance between stereotypes and reality. Identified by the Boston Globe as a rising star, and in Curve magazine as one of the "funniest lesbians in America," she’s a regular performer at the Boston Comedy Festival, and also featured on Sirius XM Satellite Radio & LOGO television network. Her straightforward but subtle approach results in non-stop hilarity with everyone from mainstream to alternative audiences from Los Angeles to NYC to Newburyport!

    Zach Stewart is an up-and-coming comedian in the Boston stand-up scene. He uses his conversational style and his storytelling abilities to connect with a variety of audiences. You can find Zach performing in venues all around the Boston area including City Winery Boston, Don't Tell Boston, and Improv Asylum. He also produces, Homoerratic, a queer monthly stand-up showcase at Club Cafe, as well as co-produces Fruits by the Foot at Distraction Brewing and Mendoza Line at the Dugout Cafe

    Will Smalley is a purveyor of the silly-arts and a dude-lover extraordinaire. As an established LGBTQ+ voice in the comedy scene, Will is a former finalist in the Boston Comedy Festival and has been featured in the Bridgetown Comedy Festival. In addition to being a mainstay at the major comedy clubs and colleges across the Northeast, Will serves as the announcer/producer for Old School Game Show.

    Erin Spencer is a Boston-based comic whose dispatches from life as a single transgender woman have quickly established her as a distinctive voice in New England’s comedy scene. Her wry takes on navigating everyday life as a trans woman have entertained audiences of all kinds.

    Belleville Roots - Crys Matthews

    Crys Matthews - Belleville Roots
    Sunday, 6/16 from 3 - 5 pm

    Already being hailed as “the next Woody Guthrie,” Nashville resident Crys Matthews is among the brightest stars of the new generation of social justice music-makers. A powerful lyricist whose songs of compassionate dissent reflect her lived experience as what she lightheartedly calls "the poster child for intersectionality," Justin Hiltner of Bluegrass Situation called Matthews’s gift "a reminder of what beauty can occur when we bridge those divides." She is made for these times and, with the release of her new, hope-fueled, love-filled social justice album Changemakers, Matthews hopes to take her place alongside some of her heroes in the world of social-justice music like Sweet Honey in the Rock and Holly Near. Of Matthews, ASCAP VP & Creative Director Eric Philbrook says, “By wrapping honest emotions around her socially conscious messages and dynamically delivering them with a warm heart and a strong voice, she lifts our spirits just when we need it most in these troubled times.”

    Matthews began performing in 2010 but cemented her acclaim at Lincoln Center as the 2017 NewSong Music and Performance Competition grand prize winner. That year she also released two new projects — her album of thoughtful songs on love and life called The Imagineers, and her EP called Battle Hymn for an Army of Lovers, which tackles social justice themes. Matthews also won the People’s Music Network’s Social Justice Songs contest at the Northeast Regional Folk Alliance. Loyal fans quickly followed as Matthews racked up performances at large music festivals and prestigious venues across the country including the Sundance Film Festival, Kerrville Folk Festival, and locally at venues like The
    Birchmere, The Hamilton, Millennium Stage at the Kennedy Center, and Jammin' Java. In her TedTalk about difficult conversations called "Sing, Don't Shout — An Alternative Approach" Matthews spoke
    about being born and raised in a small town in southeastern North Carolina by an A.M.E. preacher, and how she witnessed the power of music from an early age. A former drum major and classically trained clarinetist turned folk singer, Matthews is using her voice to answer Dr. Martin Luther King's call to be "a drum major for justice."

    “I believe in hope,” Matthews said. “As a social-justice songwriter, it is my duty to keep breathing that hope and encouragement into the people who listen to my music.” And, from the title track to the last track, Changemakers does just that all while tackling some heavy topics like immigration, the opioid crisis, Black Lives Matter, and gun safety to name a few. “Ani DiFranco said, “People used to make records as in a record of an event,"” said Matthews, “so I hope that these songs will serve as a time capsule, a record of the events of the last four years and what it was like to live through them.” Crys Matthews's thoughtful, realistic, and emotional songs speak to the voice of our generation and remind us why music indeed soothes the soul.
