It’s heartwarming that, in an age when new musicians jumpstart their careers via hokey TV talent shows and gimmicky YouTube videos, Folk/Americana singer/songwriter Joe Pug has chosen a different way.

We are two weeks into summer and there have been plenty of great musical events already. But, thanks in part to the growing number of venues hosting larger concerts in the area, there’s still a lifetime of shows to come this hot season.   

The Beard Whisperers

Six years in, the Whispering Beard Folk Festival takes a grassroots approach to down-home music

 For fans (known affectionately as Beardos), WBFF has grown well beyond its original local-showcase format and become a regional/national talent draw. This year’s headliners include former Drive-By Truckers guitarist Jason Isbell and Trampled by Turtles side project Dead Man Winter, impressive names on any marquee.
