“Energy engulfed The Buttonwood Tree Saturday night when opening act J-Cherry and the Strawberries took to the stage and played to a house that overflowed the music room and spilled out into the library. A local artist with a passion for music, lead singer J-Cherry,  a.k.a. Jennifer Shafer Wood, plays her own soulful style of blues, poetry, and funk surrounded by an ethereal musical background.” David Geller

J-Cherry and her ethereal band of Strawberries will take you on a heartfelt journey through music and poetry. As a group this band interweaves music and poetry into a cornucopia of life’s experiences. The Strawberries will also entertain you with original music and poetry as each one is spotlighted and backed up by the rest of the band. It’s a Cherry in a wild patch of Strawberries!

Alien Folk Music

Alien Folk Music is singer/songwriter Jen Taylor's eclectic mix of heartbreaking to hilarious originals, her songs morph from questions on when the aliens might be coming to get her to musings on the ugly/beauty of a garden in autumn. Taylor plays a mean ukulele, Justin Good accompanies on gypsy-jazz guitar, Hans Lohse plays accordion and percussion, and Chris Brown is arguably the best-looking stand-up bass player on the radio. Their sound is unique and unforgettable.

And did we mention Taylor hula hoops and plays guitar over her head?
