About Leng Bien
Leng Bian is a queer, multiracial Chinese-American harpist, songwriter and composer from San Francisco, California. Her original work is primarily indie folk with inspiration from other styles she has studied including pop, jazz, celtic and classical music. She began writing and performing her songs at the age of 19 and now performs at an array of venues around New England and the Bay Area. In addition to writing and performing music, Leng Bian has a lot of experience of using music in holistic settings such as hospices, retirement homes and restorative health yoga classes.

About VQnC
VQnC is an artist, writer, and singer whose love of performing stems from her southern roots and musical family. Growing up in a house of creatives, music was always at the center of her life. From making up songs in the sandbox at school, to singing in Irish pubs with her father, she’s always been a natural performer and has used music as a tool to bring people together.

About The Blue
The Blue was created by India Shore and Claire Altendahl after meeting their freshman year at Berklee College of Music. Growing up in Brooklyn NY, India spent her days dreaming of being the next Judy Garland, while Claire, fueled by the troubles of being gay in the Midwest, strove to play every dive bar in Minnesota. The two joined forces to tell honest stories about sexuality, heartbreak, and yearning- all backed by India's powerful vocals and Claire's melodic riffs. Taking inspiration from artists like Norah Jones, Patsy Cline, and The Cure, The Blue strives to create music that transcends a single genre, combining blues, country, pop, and soul all in one. The Blue is supported by Aleksi Godard on drums, Sylvie Chiang on backup vocals, and Emma Stacher on bass.

Come and support local music! It's going to be a great time!
