March 9 Ameranouche Gypsy jazz trio invades our space and fills it with barely controllable joy. The trio Ameranouche features two French acoustic Gypsy jazz guitars and upright bass, and is a winner of Best of New Hampshire awards as well as being veterans of the famed Newport Jazz Festival. The group tours nationally, year-round, and has released two albums, largely of original music inspired by legendary Gypsy guitarist, Django Reinhardt.


March 16 Who better to celebrate St Paddy’s than the Kennedys ? That would be the Tough Cats !The Kennedys are an American folk-rock band, consisting of husband and wife Pete and Maura Kennedy.
For ten years now Tough Cats, a power trio of banjo, resonator guitar, and drums have been surprising audiences with their original take on what might be described as Indie Americana Rock. They have an explosive energy with to-the-point songs. Their music winds its way from banjo driven instrumentals, to 70′s sounding power pop, and finds a way to make a delicate ballad or rock rhythm fit right in. Balanced by two lead vocalists and well timed harmonies, Toughcats create a sound that’s all their own. These are your favorite bands. You just might not know it yet!

March 17 
To celebrate the 50th anniversary of The Beatles first visit to America, Pete Kennedy is offering a workshop on guitar (or uke) that will have you playing Beatle songs before you can say “one-two-three-FOUR”! Pete was guitarist for the NYC John Lennon tribute show for three years, backing Patti Smith, Jackson Brown, Cyndi Lauper, Taj Mahal and others paying homage to these great songs (Pete also saw the Beatles in concert, at a very young age). So bring your acoustic axe, a portable recorder, and unleash your inner Beatle!

March 23 Asleep at the Wheel . TWO shows ! 1;46 and 6:46 . Your ticket includes a signed and numbered screen print from Tim Lee , specially created for this visit.

March 26 Kim and Reggie History, and social activism, combine with melody and poetry for a mini festival of diversity !

March 27 FOGHORN ! Finally coming to LA the quintessential old time string band brings it to the Sandhills.

March 30 Catherine Russell. Pedigree predicts success. When your dad was Louis Armstrong’s music director, and your mom is Carline Ray , chances are definitely in your favor. Catherine has capitalized on her genetic predisposition playing Montreal, Monterey, Newport . SO very proud to bring Ms Russell to Aberdeen.
