About The Event
Three award-winning, singer-songwriters will be on tour in Maine during mid-late July, 2023 spreading their good vibes and great harmonies.
Maine singer-songwriter and multi-instrumentalist Lynn Deeves honed her stage and vocal skills on the New England high energy, rock club circuit of the 1980’s and 90’s. Her soulful vocals and easeful presence on stage have long-captivated audiences around the Northeast and beyond. “The Muse” called in 1996 and Deeves has since released 4 independent solo CD’s. She also collaborated on a 5th CD with Maine songwriting trio “under the song tree,” along with notable Maine performers Anni Clark and Dan Merrill. Lynn has shared stages with Cheryl Wheeler, Ellis Paul, Ferron, America and many others. She was most recently selected to contribute a track to the “Maine Pink Album” celebrating the 26 top women recording artists in Maine, a benefit compilation for the Maine Breast Cancer Center.
With a rich, powerful voice, Trina Hamlin reveals a rare confluence of midwestern innocence, contemplative focus and raw passion while adding a disarmingly sharp wit. She seamlessly moves from guitar to piano to self-accompaniment on harmonica, leaving many who witness her live performance wondering what she Can’t do! Trina has toured throughout the U.S. and Europe, with her trademark driving, rhythmic, blues and rock-infused songs/grooves. Hamlin earned a degree in professional music from Berklee College in Boston and has since written and co-produced 5 solo albums. She has performed at the Newport Folk Festival in the company of Ani Difranco, Dar Williams and the Indigo Girls. Hamlin has been a guest on “Late Night with Conan O’Brien and her music has been featured on popular television shows on the WB, Lifetime, CBS, ABC and MTV. She has shared stages with Taj Mahal, Charlie Musslewhite, John Hiatt and Rickie Lee Jones, to name a few.
Colleen Sexton migrated to New England from Syracuse, NY to attend law school, but instead quickly discovered the fertile Boston singer-songwriter scene. She stayed in law school only two days, later touring the Eastern US and Canada. Equal parts sincerity and strength, Colleen Sexton has ably established herself as a respected artist and performer. Combining the sweet sounds of the front porch in summer with the soul of a vintage Harlem night, she delivers the goods. Critics have described her performance as "smoldering, sincere, and captivating": and her songs as "intelligent" and "passionate."
With her versatile presence, Colleen has engaged listeners in clubs, coffeehouses, colleges and festivals. Her CD Greatest Find (Accord Music Group/Distributed nationally by Telarc) brought a new edge to the singer-songwriter tradition. The CD features guest appearances by Martin Sexton, Cliff Eberhardt, and Janis Ian. Colleen independently released Colleen Sexton LIVE (Crescent Records). This highly-acclaimed live recording illustrates her range and ability to connect with her audience. Colleen's debut CD, Step Outside, garnered two Boston Music Award nominations (1999), putting her among the elite of Boston songwriters. Her song 'Dear Arlene' appears on the Respond compilation CD, which Billboard Magazine's editor named the number one album of 1999.
