We Are All Baker

WeAreBaker, a duo project of Mishal Moore and Richard Cortez, delivered one of the most emotional music experiences I have ever had. I believe everyone in the audience at the Extended Play Sessions felt the same.

Another Enchanting Evening With An American Songster

I have come to the realization that I am going to see Dom Flemons every chance I get! I saw him a couple of weeks ago at Club Passim, which was the second time I saw him in 2014.

He does not describe himself as a musicologist, yet he is extremely knowledgeable about the history of American and African-American roots music; he obviously enjoys educating his audiences because he does it quite well.
