"Up Close and Personal"

Stay at the Inn at Crystal Lake in the beautiful town of Eaton, New Hampshire where just over the Maine state border in the town of Brownfield is the Stone Mountain Arts Center (or "SMAC" as it has become known). Enjoy all the comforts of our cozy country inn complete with our own dining room and pub. Relax and have an intimate dinner before the show... we will definitely all take good care of you!

Package prices are based on double occupancy (single and multiple person packages are available - please inquire).

Some weekend packages have a two night minimum and are noted below. Some SMAC packages may be combined with our other lodging packages. Please inquire.

Packages include two priority tickets (no need to call the Arts Center), dinner at the inn, gratuity for dinner, breakfast and a shuttle to and from the show in our SMACVIP van (tax, beverages and any additional gratuity are not included).

PACKAGES INCLUDE **PREMIER SEATING** AT THE ARTS CENTER! You will be treated as our special guests with a fantastic table near the front - the Arts Center will get you as close to the stage as possible! (*Barn Burners are a "club style" show and tickets are general admission - although seats will be saved especially for our guests!)

Just make one phone call to 1-603-447-2120 to reserve your complete getaway!

Unless otherwise noted, concerts begin promptly at 8pm. Dinners at the inn are around 5pm and the shuttle leaves around 7pm.

We require a two-thirds deposit on any major credit card with the remainder due upon arrival. Because of the popularity of these concerts and the limited number of priority tickets, the Arts Center requires that we purchase the priority tickets up front and therefore any deposits on Getaway Packages are non-refundable. We treat these packages as you would when you purchase tickets to any other type of concert.

NOTE: SMAC packages are priced for two people in one of our standard rooms (queen bed). If available, you can upgrade to our Canopy or King Room for an additional $20 for our large two room suite for an additional $40 (upgrade $$s are per night for multi-night packages).

IMPORTANT NOTE ABOUT THE ARTS CENTER: On the nights of performances the Arts Center does not take credit cardsonly cash. Tickets, lodging, dinner, etc. are all handled through the Inn, but if you’d like beverages or merchandise while you’re at the performance, you must bring cash with you.

August 17 (Thursday): Marshall Cranshaw & Los Straitjackets click for the artists' websites

Call 1-603-447-2120 to book this package
OR CLICK TO RESERVE NOW!

Marshall Crenshaw
Over the course of a career that's spanned nearly four decades, thirteen albums, Grammy and Golden Globe nominations, film and TV appearances (Buddy Holly in "La Bamba") and thousands of performances, Crenshaw's musical output has maintained a consistent fidelity to the qualities of artfulness, craftsmanship and passion, and his efforts have been rewarded with the devotion of a broad and remarkably loyal fan base. A musician's musician.
Los Straitjackets
They are the leading practitioners of the lost art of the guitar instrumental. Using the music of The Ventures, The Shadows, Link Wray and Dick Dale as a jumping off point, the band has taken their unique, high energy brand of original rock & roll around the world. Clad in their trademark Lucha Libre Mexican wrestling masks, the “Jackets” have delivered their trademark guitar licks to 16 albums, thousands of concerts and dozens of films and TV shows. Oh, and for this show there will be an emphasis on the great tunes of another favorite, Nick Lowe!

Package includes: One nights lodging in a standard room with a full country breakfast the next morning, dinner at the Inn before the show (gratuity for dinner is included, but alcohol and additional gratuity is not), a SMACVIP shuttle to and from the show and two priority tickets with premier seating to the show. $455

August 24 (Thursday): The Secret Sisters click for the artists' website

Call 1-603-447-2120 to book this package
OR CLICK TO RESERVE NOW!

Lydia and Laura Rogers are recognizable as sisters the minute they open their mouths. They float, twist and trade harmonies in ways only siblings can. Hailing from small-town Alabama, the pair started practicing parts as girls in church, and two decades later, their music can be hymn-like: plain but powerful, heartsick and hopeful. They also throw back to secular songs: those of the Everly Brothers, bluegrass creator Bill Monroe and country godfather Hank Williams. In fact, all but two songs on The Secret Sisters' first (self-titled) album were covers of traditionals or traditional country songs. Later albums would show their own songwrting talents, a little darker but still as sweet. Their latest project will be a new record, produced by Brandi Carlile and the Twins. If that is not a seal of approval, we don't know what is! Check them out for yourself on YouTube.

Package includes: One nights lodging in a standard room with a full country breakfast the next morning, dinner at the Inn before the show (gratuity for dinner is included, but alcohol and additional gratuity is not), a SMACVIP shuttle to and from the show and two priority tickets with premier seating to the show. $435

OR CLICK TO RESERVE NOW!

If the Celtic super group Altan and Rock legend Rush were to have a baby band, it would be Enter the Haggis! They are a high energy collision of Celtic, Rock and world styles. A Canadian world Celtic rock band based in Toronto, ETH as their know to their fans, could lay claim to possibly eighteen different genres of music. With fiddle, bagpipes, electric guitar, bass and drums, these guys have made their band success one fan, one town, one region at a time, and SMAC is yet another stop for this fun group. Always a sell out and always a great show.

Package includes: One nights lodging in a standard room with a full country breakfast the next morning, dinner at the Inn before the show (gratuity for dinner is included, but alcohol and additional gratuity is not), a SMACVIP shuttle to and from the show and two priority tickets with premier seating to the show. $455

OR CLICK TO RESERVE NOW!

A special show with Bruce and his amazing Noisemaker drummer, Sonny Emory
Bruce Hornsby’s work displays a creative iconoclasm that’s been a constant in the artist’s two-and-a-half decade recording career. His commercial stock soared early on, when “The Way It Is”–the title track of his 1986 debut album–became one of the most popular songs on American radio. Despite his early mainstream successes, Hornsby has pursued a more personal, idiosyncratic musical path, focusing on projects that sparked his creative interest, including collaborations with the Grateful Dead, Spike Lee, Ricky Skaggs, Don Henley, Ornette Coleman, Bob Dylan, Bela Fleck, Bonnie Raitt, Pat Metheny, and Robbie Robertson. Throughout his career Hornsby has maintained the integrity, virtuosity and artistic curiosity that have been hallmarks of his work from the start. His performance will offer a glimpse of a restless spirit who continues to push forward into exciting new musical terrain. A special intimate show with Bruce's drummer Sonny Empory of the Noisemakers... and lucky you, you get to see it!! SMAC is very honored he chose their humble hall once again!

Package include: One nights lodging in a standard room with a full country breakfast the next morning, dinner at the Inn before the show (gratuity for dinner is included, but alcohol and additional gratuity is not), a SMACVIP shuttle to and from the show and two priority tickets with premier seating to the show. $765

OR CLICK TO RESERVE NOW!

Known for his power pop in the nineties, this Nebraskan native Matthew Sweet delivered a slam dunk with his hit song and album, Girlfriend - a classic break up record. During a career that stretches back to the mid-’80s, Matthew Sweet has never followed trends, though his landmark 1991 album Girlfriend was responsible for starting one - its bone-dry, caterwauling sonics opening up a wild and picturesque new terrain for restless singer/songwriters to inhabit and explore. Now decades later, Sweet releases Tomorrow Forever, his fifth album of new material in this century, the first since 2011’s Modern  Art and 14th overall in a recording career spanning more than three decades, is teeming with his signature sounds and songwriting.

Package includes: One nights lodging in a standard room with a full country breakfast the next morning, dinner at the Inn before the show (gratuity for dinner is included, but alcohol and additional gratuity is not), a SMACVIP shuttle to and from the show and two priority tickets with premier seating to the show. $445

Fiddle prodigy Erica was competing at seven, touring at nine and recording at fifteen, when she made her SRT debut with the Old Time Radio Gang. Now her own five piece Bluegrass Band is enjoying great popularity and returns for their annual Bluegrass / Country / Folk hoedown! With Matt Shipman on guitar and vocals, Ken Taylor on bass, Steve Roy on Mandolin and vocals, and Read McNamara on Banjo. Erica was a recipient of a 2006 Maine Arts Commission Traditional Arts Apprenticeship Award and was recognized as a Master Artist by the Maine Arts Commission that same year.  Her talent for combining the precision of classical music with the spontaneity of country and bluegrass fiddle makes for a fun-filled performance every time she plays. Performance highlights include opening for Grammy award winning country music superstar Dwight Yoakam, as well as Grammy award winning bluegrass performer Ricky Skaggs and Kentucky Thunder.

"One of the best fiddlers in Maine... The kind of musician who gives musicians a good name."  - Darol Anger

OR CLICK TO RESERVE NOW!

Honing a synthesis of Folk and Blues for over 50 years, Chris Smither is truly an American original. Having distilled his own signature sound of blues and folk for over 40 years, Chris Smither is one of the best to ever hit our stage. With profound songs, dazzling guitar skills and his distinct gravelly voice he casts a spell over the audience one song at a time. Says the Chicago Sun Times - "Chris Smither has traveled countless miles with his careworn blend of folk and acoustic blues. His hallmarks include the fingers of an effortless musician, a voice as craggy and deep as the earth, the soul of a philosopher and master poet, and the foot-tapping percussion of a restless wanderer..."

OR CLICK TO RESERVE NOW!

Husband and wife singer/songwriters Kris Delmhorst and Jeffrey Foucault rarely perform together as a duo, but if its rare SMAC is the best place to find it!
Kris Delmhorst
a prolific writer and constant collaborator, grew up in Brooklyn NY. Her musical home is in Boston MA where she cut her teeth on open mics, bar gigs, and subway busking before embarking on her life as an internationally touring songwriter. She has a smoky voice and when she sings she is lost in the song  more deeply than most. Burt what might get missed about her obvious talents is just want a great musician she is.
Jeffrey
Foucault grew up in Wisconsin and started playing guitar at 17. One of those songwriters who when you discover him, you feel feel deprived of the time you could have spent listening.  Compared to the likes of Greg Brown and John Prine, like Kris, a strong   Jeffrey has taken, in his own words, ‘the small roads;’ building a brick and mortar independent international touring career of ten studio albums, countless miles and critical accolades with his warm and gritty voice and troubadour style
Together, Delmhorst and Foucault live in a small town in western Massachusetts with their daughter who we are sure to hear about on this sweet night of love and music.

We cannot get enough of this master Scottish fiddler and his beautiful cellist sidekick, Natalie Haas.

If you didn't see this show in May, don't miss your chance again. Maine’s own pianist Tom Snow returns to SMAC as a leader, and this time he’s bringing a few of his friends from the world of Jazz. SMAC audiences have heard Tom many times as Jonathan Edwards’ pianist, and you may have also attended SMAC’s sold-out 2013 CD release concert of his fourth CD, “Friends.” On this night, Tom is sharing the stage with Jazz giant and NYC-based virtuoso clarinetist, Ken Peplowski, acclaimed Boston bassist, Marty Ballou, and stalwart favorite and Boston “A-lister”, Les Harris, Jr. (drums). If you’ve ever heard Tom perform, you’ll know that he is a musical chameleon and often cross-weaves styles of folk, bluegrass, rock and jazz. Accompanied by this stellar lineup of world-renowned musicians, the sweet sounds of jazz will fill the air at Stone Mountain. We hope you’ll join Tom as he pours his artistry, love, sincerity, and musical communication into this fantastic setting.

November 18 (Saturday): Rosanne Cash click for the artist's website

Sorry - SOLD OUT!

Whether Rosanne had a famous Dad or not, she would have still become the critically acclaimed singer songewriter she is today. Her music weaves easily from Country to Folk to Pop, and her lyrics cut to the core of your heart. One of the country’s pre-eminent singer/songwriters, Rosanne Cash has released fifteen albums of extraordinary songs that have earned four GRAMMY Awards and nominations for eleven more, as well as twenty-one top-40 hits, including eleven No.1 singles. She is also an author whose four books include the best-selling memoir Composed, which the Chicago Tribune called “one of the best accounts of an American life you’ll likely ever read. Cash’s landmark 2009 album, “The List,” won the Americana Music Album of the Year award. In her latest release, “The River and the Thread,” a collaboration with husband/co-writer/producer and arranger John Leventhal, Cash evokes a kaleidoscopic examination of the geographic, emotional, musical and historic landscape of the American South. The album has received impressive worldwide acclaim and attained the highest debut in the Billboard charts of any of her previous albums. It received three Grammy Awards in 2015. On October 11, 2015 she was inducted into the Nashville Songwriters’ Hall of Fame. She is a big time SMAC favorite... come see why it is such an honor to have her grace their stage!

NOTE: The Saturday show is a slightly higher price as it is a benefit for the Brownfield Historical Society:
About Brownfield Historical Society http://brownfieldhistoricalsociety.com/
Brownfield is a special town. SMAC has been blessed to land there. 85% of the town was destroyed in the great fire of 1947 and there is a rich history about the town before the fire, during the fire, and how it has survived. The Historical Society is doing great work to try to archive this rich and sometime forgotten history of a town many are immensely proud to call their home.

Packages include: One nights lodging in a standard room with a full country breakfast the next morning, dinner at the Inn before a show (gratuity for dinner is included, but alcohol and additional gratuity is not), and two tickets to a show. $515 (Fri.) & $535 (Sat.)

SMAC loves this band and so will you! It's a perfect way to celebrate the new year happily! Performing traditional Québécois music that is heavily influenced by Celtic music, these guys are better every time you see them. Le Vent du Nord is one of the premier folk bands coming out of Canada today winning multiple awards and accolades from our friends up north. They have a huge and exciting sound using traditional instruments and foot stomping rhythms... and they even play the hurdi gurdi!!

Songs like "Where have all the Cowboys Gone" and "I Don't Want to Wait" put her on the list of chart busters. But the first time many heard her, she was singing back up for Peter Gabriel. When he featured her, it was clear by the hush and then roar of the crowd that she was headed for bigger and better things. Of course her star rose quickly and now SMAC is lucky to be able to present her in their humble hall. Just what you need to warm a January evening. The only 'cool' will be the styling of her emotionally charged voice singing her own songs of life, love and a philosophy that is all her own. Don't miss it!

Package includes: One nights lodging in a standard room with a full country breakfast the next morning, dinner at the Inn before the show (gratuity for dinner is included, but alcohol and additional gratuity is not), a SMACVIP shuttle to and from the show and two priority tickets with premier seating to the show. $475

Back for an encore performance of this show that everyone loved! Three great folks singers one great night... all on stage, good friends, and joyful voices.

Christine Lavin: New York's own singer-songwriter and founding member of Four Bitchin' Babes. She is known for her sense of humor, which is expressed in both her music and her onstage performances. Many of her songs alternate between emotional reflections on romance and outright comedy. Her book COLD PIZZA FOR BREAKFAST: A MEM-WHA is another way Christine expresses herself. Just a knock-out performer.

Don White:
If you laugh and cry within the same ten minutes, you either need a vacation or you are sitting in the audience at a Don White show. This working class family man from Lynn, Massachusetts has emerged as the thoughtful songwriter of the decade whose relevance to our lives is evidenced by the powerful reaction he evokes at every concert. Radio audiences, too, are not safe from the Don White experience. Valerie Adams of WNCS Radio, Vermont said, "I've never seen anything like it. Every time I play I Know What Love Is the phones light up like a Christmas tree. Stereo Review Magazine called it "...A candidate for song of the year."

Vance Gilbert:
Burst onto the singer/songwriter scene in the early 90's when the buzz spread through the folk clubs of the Northeast about an ex-multicultural arts teacher who was knocking them dead at open mics. Word got out about this Philadelphia-area born and raised performer, and Shawn Colvin invited Gilbert to be a special guest on her 1992 Fat City tour. Gilbert took audiences across North America by storm. One review reads: "With the voice of an angel, the wit of a devil, and the guitar playing of a god, it was enough to earn him that rarity: an encore for an opener" Speaking of his live shows, artists as varied as Arlo Guthrie, Anita Baker, and the late George Carlin have in recent years requested Vance to be added to their evenings. Come see why. What a voice, what a nut, what a treat!

Package includes: One nights lodging in a standard room with a full country breakfast the next morning, dinner at the Inn before the show (gratuity for dinner is included, but alcohol and additional gratuity is not), a SMACVIP shuttle to and from the show and two priority tickets with premier seating to the show. $445

Don't let the name fool you... these handsome Irish boys are not all about the banjo! “It’s as if the Punch Brothers, Sam Bush, Jerry Douglas and the Chieftains all got together for a battle of the bands but decided to pool their resources instead. The future of World Music has arrived.” – Elmore Magazine
One of the best live acts to come out of Ireland in recent years is the multi-award winning We Banjo 3. With a seven time all Ireland banjo champ, a four time banjo champ, and another member who is an all Ireland champ on both fiddle and Bodhran, and with a passionate lead vocalist like a young Springsteen adopted by the Chieftans, the result is truly unforgettable. On both sides of the Atlantic the word is out about this group.
WB3 has performed for President Barack Obama, Vice President Joe Biden, and Irish Prime Minister Enda Kenny and has headlined virtually every major US Celtic fest for several years in a row.  Now the band is rapidly gaining favor in the Bluegrass and Americana world as evidenced by their invites to Merlefest, ROMP Fest, Sisters Folk Fest, Old Settlers Fest, Four Corners Fest and others. They are Rising Stars!! Be part of their early journey!

Suzy of course is a big country star, but to SMAC she is like family. Her countless hits and platinum records would assume a big attitude as well. But with Suzy, the only big you get is in the heart department. She is as down home as you can get and her sweet and sultry voice will make you wish the night would never end. Accompanied by always stellar side men, her show is not to be missed. Welcome back Suzy!
