Indie-Folk

Strangers by Accident

52 Hall Ave., Somerville (see map on right)
Band Contact: Brian Sousa
Saturday, May 12 12:00 PM - 2:00 PM

Hailing from Boston, Strangers by Accident are an authentic, energetic indie-folk act with an old-school respect for songwriting. Started by Brian Sousa and Amy Wynne in 2015, the duo has become a powerful live act, adding Justin Bartlett on vocals /electric guitar, and Heidi Crampton on drums. The band’s lyrically driven songs feature three-part harmonies and veer from suitcase-stomping acoustic, to snare-pounding electric, to minimalist folk.

John Shakespear Band

141 Orchard St., Somerville (see map on right)
Band Contact: John Shakespear
Saturday, May 13 4:00 PM - 6:00 PM

The product of countless stages and dusty backroads from Cambodia to Cambridge, John Shakespear's music captures the restless tension between the joy of stillness and the need for change. With a six-piece band and string section, his indie-folk songs take on a raucous grandeur that recalls the Arcade Fire and Stars.
