Danika & The Jeb

Nashville based duo Danika Holmes & Jeb Hart offer an intoxicating mix of soul and pop. Danika Holmes ~ vocals, piano, guitar Jeb Hart ~ guitar Danika is a songwriter who was almost a doctor. Jeb's a guitar aficionado who owns and operates his own guitar instruction company. Together they form the duo Danika & The Jeb, a soulful combination of acoustic pop and blues that hits the heart with their blended talents. Hailed as "a captivating singer in a truly soulful duo," by Emmy Award winning songwriter Trey Bruce, Holmes initially started as a solo artist, her songs playing on Sirius XM's Coffee House station and on 150 radio stations nationwide. Her belief is that a well written song can embody all emotions of the human existence and she articulates that beautifully with her slightly raspy yet gentle voice and truthful lyrics. Hart can tell a story with six strings ~ "I've seen some of the best guitarists that rock, blues and country have to offer." says Entertainment reporter Jim Renke. "Jeb Hart can hold his own with any of them. His heart and passion are matched only by his technical skills." The multi-faceted Hart began playing music at the age of 9, and shortly thereafter began a 16 year career of guitar instruction, opening his own company Six Month Guitar. Performing with various bands, ranging in genres from blues to rock, country to big band, Jeb found the partner he was looking for in Danika. Danika and Jeb are taking stages by storm, and have opened for mainstream heavyweights such as Lyle Lovett, Dierks Bentley, Phil Vassar and others. "Danika and Jeb came through Red Clay Theatre a while back. I had watched the videos and listened in space face world, but wasn't prepared for what they gave... LIVE.... Yall spread the word bout them, and catch 'em when you can. They'll outgrow the little places soon." ~ Eddie Owen of Eddie Owens Presents and formerly Eddie's Attic "Danika Holmes isn't just easy on these eyes. She's a true American talent... I couldn't stop listening!" ~ Mike Wolfe, American Pickers on History "I'm always struck by her voice and her uniqueness in phrasing and especially tone. She's a captivating singer in a truly soulful duo." ~ Trey Bruce, Emmy Award Winning Songwriter "Danika Holmes puts her heart and soul into every performance. Her smile draws you in, her music keeps you there." ~ Madalyn Sklar, GoGirls Music "Ive seen some of the best guitarists that rock, blues and country have to offer. Jeb Hart can hold his own with any of them. His heart and passion are matched only by his technical skills." ~ Jim Renke, Entertainment Reporter

Jeff Snow

The Softer Side of Celtic combines the music, stories, and history from Scotland, Ireland and England into a program that will keep you on the edge of your seat. Jeff Snow ~ voice, guitar, autoharp, bouzouki There will be singing, laughing, clapping and even a bit of foot stomping. Participation by the audience is encouraged. Jeff Snow is a skilled instrumentalist and a highly recognized guitar player who was featured in Acoustic Guitar Magazine. He also plays the autoharp, bouzouki, and a variety of other instruments. Growing up as the son of a drummer in a Bagpipe band and in a home where older Celtic songs were the everyday sounds, Jeff developed a love for the music of Scotland, England and Ireland. The magical sounds from the instruments coupled with vocals and Jeff's love and knowledge of his Scottish heritage create a delightful program of traditional and original tunes and songs. Much of the history of Scotland, England and Ireland is preserved in song. Hearing those stories along with the songs educate as well as entertain. There is no better example of this than the Ballad of Kilkelly Ireland. In 1855 John Hunt left his family's home in Kilkelly Ireland and came to the United States. When he left Ireland, John Hunt was 13 years old. He settled in Maryland, found a job, got married and had children. He never returned to Ireland and never saw his family again. Without cell phones and the internet, communication was by the annual family letter. In the 1970's these letters were discovered by songwriter Peter Jones. He wrote the ballad that tells the story of the Hunt family.

About New Salem, MA
The Town of New Salem Massachusetts was founded in 1753 and is located in Franklin County.

Those in the area should visit the Swift River Valley Historical Society for a piece of town history. Also visit the Bears Den which is a 100 foot deep gorge that was carved by the swift river cascading off granite cliffs and this was also said to be the meeting place for Indian Tribes.

The town remains to be a quiet rural bedroom community.
