The Seth Warner Trio plays folk, blues, Americana and old-time country. Guitarist-singer Warner manages the Olin Arts Center at Bates College and has also served as executive producer for several internationally acclaimed classical recordings. Also in the trio are Michael Desrosier, who plays electric guitar, and Tim Webb, who performs on upright bass.

Hailing from northwest Portland, Doug Hubley and Gretchen Schaefer are Day for Night. They support their harmony singing with guitar and mandolin. The pair, who first made music together in the 1990s as members of the Cowlix and the Boarders, combine wry humor with a bedrock reverence for musical tradition as they cover about three decades’ worth of country music. Hubley is also employed at Bates as a writer in the Bates Communications Office.
