STEPHEN KELLOGG w/special guest Eric Donnelly of The Alternate Routes

CARAVAN OF THIEVES | THE MOONSHELLS | RO GODWYNN

Stephen Kellogg:

Over the last decade, New England native Stephen Kellogg has performed more than 2,000 concerts around the world, raised thousands of dollars for causes close to his heart, been named Armed Forces Entertainer of the Year, and penned singles for artists like platinum selling rock band O.A.R and American Idol winner Nick Fradiani. Stephen’s most recent writing work with legendary guitarist Robert Randolph, led to a Grammy nomination for Contemporary Blues Record. He's also had his songs covered by international major label acts and released ten studio albums of his own yielding hundreds of thousands of ticket and record sales.

A father of four and married to his high school sweetheart, filmmaker Peter Harding was so moved by the everyman nature of Kellogg's story that he made a documentary called Last Man Standing; which went on to become an Amazon exclusive film. In recent years, Kellogg has added authorship and speaking to his resume as well. He delivered a TEDx Talk on job satisfaction, the keynote speech for the prestigious photography summit WRKSHP, and was invited to speak to the students at Columbine High School in Littleton, CO on the topics of social justice and finding your voice.’ He has appeared as a contributing author in several publications and in July 2020, published his first full length book-a collection of essays called, “Objects in the Mirror: Thoughts on a Perfect Life from an Imperfect Person.”

Kellogg’s newest studio album, Objects In The Mirror, was recorded over the course of a single week in Nashville, TN. Produced by Will Hoge and featuring twelve songs that explore American life in 2018, the decision was made to track the band live, keeping the results in tact with minimal overdubs. “I wanted to make an album that sounded and felt like the ones I grew up loving; Bob Seger and Cat Stevens, Tom Petty and Rod Stewart. Emotional records where the songs relate to each other and the lyrics are front and center. That’s my true north.” That sentiment comes through loud and clear on Objects In The Mirror, an album which Rolling Stone says sounds ‘like John Prine fronting The Heartbreakers.” Another journalist succinctly describes his music as “a beautiful display of- well, his heart,” while Counting Crows frontman Adam Duritz told Glide Magazine, “He’s just one of the most likable people I’ve known. There are few people in rock n’ roll who are just so great.

Caravan of Thieves:

Gypsy Swinging Serenading Firebreathing Circus Freaks!

Driving gypsy jazz rhythms, an acoustic guitar and violin lay the foundation for mesmerizing vocal harmonies and fantastic stories. It's theatrical and humorous. It's musical and intense. It entertains, dazzles and defies classification while welcoming the spectator to join the band throughout the performance in momentary fits of claps, snaps and sing-alongs. If Django Reinhardt, the cast of Stomp and the Beatles all had a party at Tim Burton's house, Caravan of Thieves would be the band they hired.

The MoonShells:

The Moon Shells draw from the traditional music of Appalachia, Louisiana, West Africa and elsewhere to try to make something new. Whether performing as an acoustic stringband, a stripped-down trio, or a five-piece making modern sounds on traditional instruments at clubs and festivals, the Moon Shells move hearts and feet.

Ro Godwynn:

Ro, a musician and activist local to New Haven, CT, sought to create moments and spaces of healing through music. From singing with local favorites, Phat A$tronaut, to putting out a solo EP, Ro continues to establish herself as a performer, lyricist, and sonic healer.

Her stories of heartache, dreams deferred, healing and hope continue to resonate with their growing audience.

After recovering from COVID-19 in the midst of the pandemic, Ro made a vow to continue to connect with their following in different ways, keeping wellness at the forefront of their mission. They started making natural and sustainable skincare products, combining their love of healing, self-care, and the planet.

As she continues to create, Ro hopes to galvanize her audience to choose self-care and healing through the products she makes and the songs she sings.
