BERLIN - A new monthly music series at the Pine Loft Cafe will be starting on Saturday, Sept. 28, and the first three artists have been announced.

The first performers will be Connecticut’s own Bill Wallach, Don Sineti and Steve Roys.

The trio will perform sea shanties, Americana, instrumentals, and everything in between.

They play banjo, mandolin, guitar, harmonica, mouth harp, and various percussion instruments.

Pete and Maura Kennedy will perform on Oct. 26.

The Kennedys have traveled well over a million miles on the road, including two stints as members of Nanci Griffith’s Blue Moon Orchestra. The two have released 14 duo albums and half a dozen side projects as well.

The performance on Nov. 23 will feature Bill Staines, New Hampshire’s yodeling cowboy.

Staines, who is originally from New England, has spent more than forty years performing all over North America weaving wit and humor into his performances.

He became involved with the Boston-Cambridge folk scene in the early 1960s before going on to emcee the Sunday Hootenanny at Club 47 in Cambridge for some time, and has gone on to become one of the most durable singers on the folk music scene, performing nearly 200 concerts a year.

Admission for each performance is $20 cash at the door.
