The HFM Welcomes October’s Dream THIS SATURDAY October 13! This foursome hails from the Boston Folk Song Society. Twice performing at the New England Folk Festival, at local area farmers’ markets, and at open mics throughout the area, October’s Dream plays traditional and contemporary folk, some bluegrass and some gospel. They play strictly acoustic instruments that include stand up bass, guitar, mandolin, harmonica,
The HFM ROCKS! About mid-way through the season, we like to shake things up and get loud and fun and funky. Our dedicated supporter and friend Rick Wood knows just how to do that! He joins us this week with his fabulous band Rock Club. From left: Rick Wood, Mike Keefe, Hillary Chabot, Joe Kelliher, and Steve Halloran. Playing throughout the Boston area and New England, they are headed
The Harvard Farmers’ Market is super stoked for this week’s band: Harvard’s own Black Tea Project. With us since our founding year, Steve Miller and Wendy Saydah have earned themselves local rock-star status. Between six years of Markets, plus all the festivals and coffee houses and private parties, we’re suspecting that most HFM locals have danced at least
Vendors and patrons both surely won’t forget the amazing sounds of Victor Pavao’s piano which kicked off this year’s 2012 season. This Saturday we get to welcome the return of the entire family. It’s true, the beloved Pavao Family Band returns to the HFM from 9-12! These Acton-based boys are playing gigs all over New England this Fall; we feel so fortunate they
This weekend we are happy to welcome one of our own… One Great Road is a home-grown acoustic group playing alternative folk, Americana, and the good old Grateful Dead. They hail from Harvard (Marie Fagan) and Acton (Dale Wilson, Dan Ratner), and are new to the local music scene. Come say hello on Saturday morning!
Once upon a time, many years ago, two of the coolest guys drove out to Harvard in their Greasemobile to help us welcome farmers and friends to the first Harvard Farmers Market. They brought their guitars and mandolins. And a really great dog. They called themselves the Wild Edibles, sang some Dead and some Allman Brothers and some Pearl Jam, and we were in
When we first heard there was an Indie folk band right next door who wanted to play the Market, we couldn’t say YES fast enough! And with song titles such as ‘Litterbug’ and ‘The Shady Tree,’ we knew for sure they would fit right in. Bringing their melody driven pop to their Harvard neighbors, The Farewells are an acoustic duo from Boxborough, Massachusetts.

It is a true honor to have the Black Tea Project return to the Market for the fifth year in a row! Market friends and supporters Steve Miller and Wendy Saydah play in venues across Massachusetts; but we look forward all year to the Saturday morning in Farmers’ Market season when they come back home to play for us. This dynamic duo will be
Our opening band for the 2011 season simply rocked! No, they are technically not a Trio, but actually are four local boys who not only support earth awareness (hence ‘tree – yo!’) but also have some serious groove…check them out… Tree Yo! Special thanks to our generous Music Sponsor Don Ludwig of Farm Family Insurance for making all the VIBE possible!
