In 2013 we had 4 acts at the Fair:

alimarcus-225x300 12:00 – 1:00 PM in the Courtyard

Ali Marcus

“The music is quite beautiful. It’s just Marcus and an acoustic guitar and that’s all you need…Driven by a pretty voice that occasionally recalls Jenny Lewis these are some of the best songs I’ve heard from a new artist in an age .”


HarmonicaPocket 1:00 – 2:00 PM A children’s show in the southwest corner of the Cafeteria

The Harmonica Pocket

The Harmonica Pocket begins as the swinging songs of songwriter Keeth Monta Apgar. He delivers thick jazz chord progressions with storytelling lyrics wrapped up into thoughtful, mature songs.

The Harmonica Pocket tours a children’s show which has performed in sold out theaters, clubs, classrooms and libraries, and festivals nationally and internationally.

The Harmonica Pocket’s 2012 release Apple Apple, a Parent’s Choice Gold Award winner, is a truly all-ages album made for families to listen to together. Silly, sweet, and catchy songs about babies, a bird with a fear of heights, and even a diaper-wearing superhero make for a playful listen for kids and grownups alike. “A melodic dream” and full of “cool guitars…and mature lyrics,” the album was produced at The Harmonica Pocket’s solar-powered studio on Marrowstone Island.
