** Split Bill **



Children and parents throughout the North Shoe may know Brian as “The Music Man,” but he’s been singing and playing guitar for audiences of all ages since the day he dusted off his sister’s old Telsco Del Ray guitar.

 After studying voice and music production in college, Brian landed in Boston during the folk music revival of the late 1980s. He co-founded the seminal songwriter collective known as End Construction Productions along with Ellis Paul, Jon Svetkey and Jim Infantino. Their album “Resume Speed” is widely considered to be one of the main catalysts for the resurgence of the New England singer-songwriter scene.

 Whether he is singing his own serious or comical songs, or interpreting the songs of Greg Brown, John Gorka or Peter Mayer, Brian is equally at home playing rousing, upbeat songs or tender, wistful lullabies, Brian will pull you into his world with his rich, gruff baritone voice, expressive guitar playing and wry sense of humor.

Carl Cacho has firmly established himself as one of the most talented and respected singer/songwriters in New England.

Carl is a Boston Music Award Nominee, Rose Garden Coffeehouse Singer/Songwriter Competition Winner, and finalist in the Kerrville Folk Festival, Telluride Troubadour and Boston Folk Festival songwriter contests. His songs and disarming performing style have made him a favorite at venues across the Northeast. Folk legend Tom Rush once personally selected him to perform at one of his famous “Club 47” shows at Harvard University’s Sanders Theater.

Drawing on an eclectic mix of musical styles — bluegrass, blues, country and rock — Carl’s songs draw the listener into focused snapshots of events and people that usually pass unnoticed. His album “Spark” features duets with Jimmy LaFave and Kris Delmhorst as well as appearances by Ellis Paul and Mark Erelli. It was one of the top 10 played albums on Folk Radio for 3 consecutive months.
