The band at times reaches 7 members, including; guitar, upright bass, banjo, trumpet, violin, drum kit, and ukelele. Damon draws from the energy of big band swing music as well as the intimacy and poetry of folk music. Joining him will be Dylan Sullivan, a talented bassist and native of the North Shore.
Grace Morrison is an award winning Cape Cod-based singer/songwriter. The voice of Cardis’ Furniture 2014 holiday campaign, Grace and the Really Small Orchestra won WPRI-12’s Big Break Competition. A video of the song ‘The Trouble’ was featured during the American Idol finale. They were also named Limelight Magazine Band of the Year in 2014.
Grammy nominated recording engineer John Mailloux of Bongo Beach Productions says “ Grace’s voice is a reflection of herself–pure and true. She is an incredible talent mixing seemingly effortless musicality and original storytelling in the Folk and Americana genres.”
Patrick Coman plays the reds and blues.

A Connecticut native, 25-year-old Christa Gniadek (ga-NYE-deck) is an independent singer/songwriter currently working out of Boston, MA. Christa began her music career as a classically trained pianist. She started to fall in love with lyrics by her favorite artists like Dave Matthews and Norah Jones, searching for the one perfect lyric. Christa could not avoid her creativity, and soon she was writing her own songs. At 18, Christa took to the stage. As her audience grew, Christa grew as an artist. She moved to Boston, graduated from Berklee College of Music with a Songwriting degree, studying with artists like Livingston Taylor. Along with her studies, she has been prolifically gigging and touring the country. Most recently she has started opening for regional and national acts such as Red Wanting Blue, The Alternate Routes, Chatham County Line, and Damien Jurado.
Seán McKenna: The name Lay Low Moon was inspired from the lyrics of a Beck song, “Guess I’m Doing Fine” — off of the album, Sea Change, a collection that inspired Seán McKenna’s songwriting, providing a raw and emotional essence of folk-rock developed in a new way. The craftsmanship of the Boston-based indie folk outfit is filled with melodic instrumentation that encompasses all moods from wistful to happy to love, deriving from experiences of McKenna’s personal life. “Some of it may be nostalgic, other times it’s more present. Generally, though, so much of it is just about longing, and how that ties in with struggling with oneself,” McKenna explains.
In the beginning, the band started as Seán McKenna’s solo project, an outlet in which he could write new material, while playing drums in another band. From there, Lay Low Moon became a duo with an addition of Dylan Sullivan on bass and vocals, releasing a number of singles, overdubbing instruments between the two — the duo would often perform at open mics in Salem, MA. In the summer of 2012, the duo recruited Pete Danilchuk and Curtis Hartshorn, from the The Bridgebuilders to play keyboard and drums respectively.
Lay Low Moon since simultaneously released two EPs, cleverly titled One Summer, consisting of the full band, and One Winter, the solo work of Seán McKenna, producing a creative blend of acoustic and folk instrumentation and thought provoking lyrics.

India's top recording engineer from Yash Raj Studios, Vijay Dayal, will mix the event live.
R. D. Burman, also known as Pancham da, is called Bollywood's Richard Rodgers, a transformational composer credited with re-engineering India's musical tastes. His contributions included an innovative use of instruments and the creation of new instruments, sounds, rhythm patterns, talent (both artists and musicians), and recording techniques. His influence continues even today, after his death: his is perhaps the most quoted, inspirational, remixed, recreated, and discussed Bollywood music.
Burman also had a passion for world music. His primary influences came from Latin and American jazz music. He is the only Indian composer to have a Latin album that topped the Latin American Billboard charts. He had a strong base in formal training and expertise in the genre of Indian folk and classical music. He was a proponent of many instruments including the tabla, sarod, and harmonica, and he had an amazing vocal prowess.

Finance Made Difficult: A Three Day Mini-Course for MIT Faculty and Senior/Principal Research Scientists
The recurring financial crises of the last decade have underscored the importance of well-functioning financial markets to global economic growth and stability.

In this mini-course, we will provide an overview of the insights from recent research in financial economics and some of the practical applications to personal investments, risk management, government policy, etc. Topics will include: recent advances in behavioral economics for consumer financial decision-making, the importance of finance for innovation and science, and the role of the government as one of the largest financial players.
There are no formal prerequisites for this mini-course other than a general interest in financial markets, investments, and risk.

Closing Reception & Artists Talk: June 7, 3-5pm (Sunday)
What happens when you combine a truck load of cast offs from an artist and her family of five, a spectacular gallery space and a multitude of long gestating ideas? climbing trees, making forts, a family debris installation by lisa barthelson at the Sprinkler Factory Gallery.
Lisa Barthelson works in multiple mediums from her studio in the Sprinkler Factory at 38 Harlow St. in Worcester MA and has shown her mixed media work throughout New England. climbing trees, making forts is a site specific installation. The solo exhibition is the realization of the artists long held dream to seize the entire spectacular Sprinkler Factory Gallery space, and create a glimpse into the world that shaped her childhood andher adult life as mother, wife and artist, through recycling and reimagining the overload of goods that defined her own childrens youth. The installation is a continuation of the artists ongoing family debris series, now writ large, an artist at play with many materials, and metaphors: a family and studio debris extravaganza.
As a child in suburban New Jersey, Barthelsons world revolved around climbing trees and making forts. Looking back, she recognizes that in essence shes continued these activities throughout her life. The allure of tree climbing in her youth included the joy of being outside in nature, often alone, looking out at the world, from above with an expansive but hidden perspective. Using anything available as a potential building material, Barthelson created nests, outside or indoors: constructing protected and protective spaces, carved out of the family chaos that surrounded her: choosing to invite others in to play, or to be alone indulging in a rich fantasy world, away from it all, invisible while in the midst of others.
Paralleling her childhood pursuits, as an artist, Barthelson seeks time and space to be alone to focus, work and regenerate. Moving through the natural world during daily time spent outside, and indoor time holing up in the studio, now replaces the pasts tree top sanctuary and fortress. As she relished using anything at hand to build with as a child, Barthelson now loves the challenge of repurposing her familys used and already owned debris as artmaking materials. A departure from the spare consumption of Barthelsons youth, now her familys diverse postconsumer waste has created a need to re-use: indulging in a bit of pleasurable penance. At the Sprinkler Factory Gallery, Barthelson lets her imagination run free, paying homage to her youthful havens, playing with and transforming the bounty of stuff that as a child her family did not have, or need.

Join adult players of all ages and skill levels in a long-established Sunday morning pickup game in Framingham - 9 innings of baseball, every week through October. Players come whatever week they want to make it out and we typically draw about 20 players, with everyone playing an equal number of innings, so there's always room for new players. We all play as hard as we're able but all know that that errors get made, there aren't scouts in the stands, it isn't their ticket to the majors, and that safety and sportsmanship are the priorities. So it is competitive only to the best of each player's ability - which ranges from former college players to those who say that they tied their own shoes - and everyone understands that we all need to leave the field safely - making it a good fun yet still competitive atmosphere.
