Sudbury River Songwriters Evening, April 20

Arts Wayland will be hosting the first Sudbury Valley Songwriters Evening at theW Gallery on Saturday, April 20. Doors open at 6:30pm. Popular New England area singer-songwriters Alice Howe, Alec Hutson, Anna Snow and Billy Claiborn will each perform original songs in a conversational relaxed atmosphere. Songs may range from the humorous to the emotional, but all will express their writer’s creativity and showcase their talent.
Tickets can be purchased prior to the event online here. Artwork on display in the gallery will be available to purchase.

Arts Wayland and theW Gallery are located at 60 Andrew Avenue, Wayland, MA 01778, in the Wayland Shopping Center near Ace Hardware.

Alec Hutson:
A Boston homegrown singer, songwriter, and multi instrumentalist, Alec crafts music that grabs your attention and pulls you in. A stirring combination of soaring folk melodies, deep soul grooves, and earworm pop sensibility, the result is an experience not easily forgotten. Having recently completed his first European tour following the release of his album Reactions in December 2018, Alec (with full band) looks forward to sharing his music throughout New England and down the West Coast later this year.

Billy Claiborne:
Originally from Maine, Billy Claiborne fronted bands around New England for many years. Now appearing mostly solo, he draws on his country roots, frequently combining them with ample doses of folk, rock and pop and anything that strikes him at the moment. He now lives in the Boston area and appears infrequently at various coffee houses, bars and gin joints. Find him on iTunes, Spotify, YouTube and wherever music is streamed.

Anna Snow:
Anna Snow writes and performs her own brand of ambient-folk. Whether through songs about family, the in-between places of love, or hope for loved ones in distress, she combines moody, evocative guitar voicings, vocals, and lyrics to transport the listener to another world. Based out of Somerville, Massachusetts, Anna performs with uncommon passion and sincerity; she feels each note, and every word. She recently released her sophomoric full studio EP, Is This Us, in June, 2018.

Alice Howe:
With her soulful, impeccably tuned voice and crafted poetry, Boston’s Alice Howe is “at once of the moment and timeless, personal and universal” (Americana UK). In 2017 her EP You’ve Been Away So Long debuted on the Folk-DJ charts with a #1 song – “Homeland Blues” – and #7 album for the year. A 2018 NewSong Music Songwriting Competition finalist, Alice was a Falcon Ridge Folk Festival Emerging Artist, NERFA Formal Showcase Artist and WFMT Folkstage featured performer. She has completed her forthcoming full-length album, Visions, produced by Freebo (Bonnie Raitt), and will be touring the new album throughout 2019.
