Experience all that Maryhill has to offer by listening to live music on the Tuscan-style terrace (1pm-5pm) featuring Matt Brown (Saturday), Signatures (Sunday) and Karen Lovely with Ben Rice (Monday). Spend the afternoon playing bocce on one of four world-class courts, and delight your taste buds with food available for purchase by Big Man’s Rotisserie from 12pm-5pm.
Matt Brown is an old soul with a voice seasoned by influences such as Ray Charles and Bill Withers. His guitar style is steeped in the tradition of Eric Clapton and Stevie Ray Vaughan. Evident in his opening for Chris Isaak and Huey Lewis, the music of Matt Brown is rooted in timeless soul. His songs are fresh but familiar and tend to move the heart as much the feet. There is an authenticity in the words and delivery that create Brown’s signature sound.
Rarely does a vocal group have four gifted female soloists; each one is a headliner in her own right, with her own unique signature. Signatures combines the sounds of ‘40s style groups, pop, free jazz vocalizing and also draws from the touching harmonies of Simon and Garfunkel, the country rock sound of the Eagles, and the inventive, dynamic arrangements of Earth, Wine & Fire. Listening to Signatures is pure musical joy and their spontaneous humor delights audiences. Whether it’s a discussion of who gets to sing a song by which female singer in the ”Diva Request” portion of the show, or whose outfit could use a little fine-tuning, the fun abounds, with the ladies of Signatures bringing the audience along for the ride.
Karen Lovely offers up a blistering mix of contemporary Blues, Blues Rock, and American roots music in her albums and live shows. Known for her passionate, driven style, this powerhouse vocalist consistently delivers standout performances - both live and in the studio, garnering awards and critical acclaim throughout the US, Canada, Europe, and South America.
Lovely's self-released albums (including her newest release FISH OUTTA WATER) have topped national and international blues and roots charts, and made the "Best of the Year" blues album lists for noted publications such as Downbeat Magazine, Roots Music Report, Living Blues and Blues Blast. She is a two time “#1 Pick to Click” artist on XM Radio Bluesville.
Ben Rice's music is deeply rooted in traditional blues, yet at the same time fiercely original. His guitar playing earns labels like "fearless," "inventive" and "powerful," and he routinely brings audiences to their feet with his stunning and emotionally honest vocal delivery. Ben is as much home fronting his electric blues band as he is captivating a crowd solo with nothing but his voice and his resonator guitar.
