The musical collective known as Session Americana returns to home base for one night this week.  No two Session Americana shows are alike. They’re rowdy, freewheeling modern hootenannies that surprise the audience as much as they surprise the Somerville, Massachusetts sextet. Session Americana has innovatively recast the live show experience as a familial gathering of musicians seated at a round table swapping songs and instruments. Although the musicians face each other, the audience feels drawn into the circle, engaged by the joyous camaraderie, playful musicality, and charmingly original music of this all-star cast of characters.

 “The sublime beauty of Merrie Amsterburg‘s voice and entrancingly melodic nature of her songs make this a rare audio treat. The lyrics sometimes deal with knotty emotions, but the caressing touch of Amsterburg’s singing and the tasteful accompaniment are like a mind massage for listeners. This is pop music of exceedingly high caliber”  Worcester Magazine
