11:45 Ed Harlow’s The Original Gentlemen
Led by saxophonist Ed Harlow. The jazzreview.com said “Harlow has a gorgeous tone, lodged somewhere between the lilt of Paul Desmond and the muscular passion of Johnny Hodges and imbued with the sex appeal of Stan Getz.” His band includes: pianist Kevin Harris, bassist Keala Kaumeheiwa, and drummer Brooke Sofferman.

1:30pm, Newton Family Singers singing a selection from their April 13th spring concert, “Loves Me Like a Rock,” a celebration of the music of Paul Simon. The Newton Family Singers is an intergenerational family chorus composed of 60+ singers between the ages of 2 and 72, that sing and perform American folk music.

At 2:15pm, Newton’s own homegrown Americana band, Waiting For Neil. Having played together for the past two years at local venues and festivals, including the 2013 New England Americana Festival and the 2014 Joe Val Bluegrass Festival.
