Performers and Vendors

Rosin the Beaux

Acoustic Folk Music

Rosin the Beaux will be return to the WHM to kick off the Fall Harvest Fair with their folk tunes! 

We are ready to clap, stop, dance, and sing along to traditional acoustic folk music.

Based in Williamstown, Pownal, and North Adams, Rosin the Beaux has been playing the traditional music of Ireland, Scotland, Appalachia, and French Canada for almost ten years. The Beaux often play at farmers’ markets, fairs, dances, and celebrations. All proceeds go directly to support musicians’ education in the region.

Rosin the Beaux has graciously supported the museum for years, and are once again donating their music. We are unendingly grateful for their generosity and artistry.

 

Butterfly Swing Band

Hot Classic and Contemporary Swing Grooves And More!

We are thrilled to welcome the Butterfly Swing Band, who join us from the Pioneer Valley to share their “Contagiously upbeat” instrumentals and “warmly tender and soulful” vocals.

The Butterfly played our blues away!

The band explains “Our music comes from the 20’s 30’s & 40’s, embracing early swing and contemporary genres, occasionally changing it up with our unique style of creative improvisation, spontaneous riffing, & sizzling solos.”
