Split Risk is a Boston-area group of musicians who play for the love of the music. Their guitar, bass, drums and vocals combine to play tribute to old and new sounds. According to their website, their sounds is best summed up as follows (!):
“Picture a band that sounds like a mix between Foo Fighters, Gin Blossoms, and old school Clapton. Now picture a second band that sounds like Carrot Top, Bugs Bunny, Cherry Coke, and Animal (from the Muppets). Now picture a cover band of the second band mentioned. Now picture a rival cover band of the first cover band who isn’t quite as talented and refers to themselves as a tribute band. Split Risk is that tribute band.”
Come out and see Split Risk September 15th at the market!

Consisting of vocalist Ellie Cowen and guitarist Eric Giribaldi, The Morrisons bring you back to the singer/songwriter era everyone enjoys one way or another. Reminiscent of James Taylor, Bob Dylan, Simon & Garfunkel, and a certain Irishman who the group may or may not have gotten their name from. Cowen’s lyrics and vocals hit the ear with wit, honesty, and have a humane quality to them. Giribaldi fills in the spaces with guitar work ranging from heavy hitting folkies, to the jazzcats he so greatly adores. What you’re left with is a great time listening to some great stories about some fascinating characters that a lot of us can relate to. Come check them out at the Swampscott Farmers Market August 25!

The WhirlyGigs is dance music for kids that parents will love.
Folksy, hand clappin’, toe tappin’ songs with great lyrics that serve up comedy, poignancy, and a whoop whoop spirit.
Multi Instrumentalist Keith Wasserman has been playing music and writing songs his whole life. In 2009 when he became a dad,
it was only natural that his songwriting became a creative connection to share with his daughter, family, and new
community of parents and their kids.
Keith spent a year playing his children’s songs at a local preschool, for what he called: “…the perfect focus group…!”.
With titles like Portobello Mushroom, Don’t Ask me Why, Puddle Jumping, & Tickle Machine, get ready to dance
and laugh and make singing with your kids fun!
The WhirlyGigs will be appearing this summer at Local Famers Markets, Festivals, the streets of Cambridge, and your backyard!
