'Harvest and Hearth': NERFA presents!

 —  —

Chapel Apple House, 107 Chapel St., West Warren, MA

4th ANNUAL HARVEST & HEARTH FESTIVAL! NERFA presents formal showcase acts in an intimate setting. Heather is NOW THE HEADLINER, not the opener, due to a schedule change. (eek!)


We want to remind everyone that this is our way of giving back to the local community. 💝We LOVE being a venue and we love creating a safe space for everyone to enjoy art. We typically only ask that you are generous with our touring artists. (But feel free to donate directly to next years lineup via CAH tip jars placed near all the food!)

Led by acclaimed singer Heather Lloyd (ilyaimy) and mandolinist Joel Michael-Schwartz, an all-star ensemble of musicians is bringing songs of ghosts, monsters, fae, witches, and, (of course), murder most foul to Creative Alliance. Heather and Joel share a love of old, macabre songs and their peculiar place in our lives and hearts and are eager to bring these haunting melodies to you during the spookiest time of year. Joel Michael-Schwartz is an eclectic fixture of Baltimore music—a mandolinist, multi-instrumentalist, composer, arranger, and songwriter who hops genres and expectations as a matter of course. He grew up listening to and learning celtic music, and the first album he fell in love with was Roberts and Barron's Tales of the Supernatural, which makes his affinity for spooky songs a lifelong affair. Joel is Associate Director of the Baltimore Mandolin Orchestra and mandolin faculty at Goucher College.

St. Mark's Presbyterian, Rockville, Md

As part of their 2023/24 season Institute of Musical Traditions proudly presents ilyAIMY and Ayreheart’s weird and wonderful, passionate collaboration. Dave Eisner (IMT) came out to our last show together, and in that Dave voice of his said “hrm. You know… this is pretty good. Needs bigger speakers”. What can I say? I agree.
