The special guests have toured the country as performers and their songs have been recorded by Kathy Mattea, Martina McBride, Lee Ann Womack, Trisha Yearwood, Keith Urban, Maura O’Connell & Susan Werner. These artists have also collaborated with Mary Chapin Carpenter, Jonatha Brooke, Shawn Colvin, John Jennings, Lyle Lovett, Bela Fleck, Nickel Creek, David Wilcox, Aimee Mann, Bonnie Raitt, Emmylou Harris and too many others to mention. Mountain Stage, Austin City Limits, & The White House have hosted some of these talented songwriters.
Spring is here and Cape Cod’s own multi-talented singer-songwriter, Kami Lyle is bringing two rockin singer- songwriters on Friday, May 2nd, 2014, to the Cotuit Center for the Arts.
Bonnie Hayes helped put Bonnie Raitt back on the map with her Grammy winning album “Nick of Time’ with contributions of her songs “Have a Heart” & “ Love Letter” and the darling Kimon Kirk of New England’s “Session Americana” a local folk-roots super group that has been reviewed by the Boston Globe,
"Their sound lives on the edge of exploration, where the freewheeling crackle of a great jam session meets the lean groove of classic country music. The result is rock-solid, rippling with surprise, and delivered by some of the best acoustic musicians in town'-Scott Alarik, Boston Globe
It promises to be a special intimate evening of shared songs, storytelling and humor.

Gold Table for 4: Wines
NV Pommery Brut Royal
Famous for dancing to its own tune, Pommery bucked Champagne tradition to make the first Brut (Extra Dry) wine in 1875 to cater for English aristocrat palates. Pommery's Brut Royal continues to be made in that style, sitting in the dry and refreshing aperitif spectrum. Soft, creamy and persistent, the blend is a third each of Chardonnay, Pinot Noir and Pinot Meunier for balance and complexity. 89 Points | Wine Spectator
Jordon Cabernet Sauvignon
Jordan Vineyards almost single-handedly put Alexander Valley on the map. Since the release their first wine, the 1976 Cabernet Sauvignon, they’ve been a standard bearer for what this warm-climate corner of Sonoma County can produce. Soft tannins, a rich texture and opulent flavors, complimented by a restrained framework of oak that leads to a lingering finish of violet, earth, smoke, and cola. Vintages consistently score in the high 80s/low 90s from Wine Spectator
Far Niente Chardonnay
Founded with a passion to make exceptional wines, and built on ownership of the finest vineyards, Far Niente makes Napa Valley Chardonnays that are rich in aroma, flavor, and texture, yet balanced with a graceful finesse. This wine opens with delicate aromas of citrus blossom, honeydew melon, pear, flint and toasted almonds. The entry is silky with pear and citrus flavors. Refreshing acidity leads to a juicy finish, layered with toasted oak. The 2000’s vintages consistently score in the low 90s from Wine Spectator.
Silver Table for 4: Wines
Schramsberg Blanc de Blanc
Blanc de Blancs was the first wine Schramsberg produced in 1965 and was America’s first commercially produced Chardonnay-based brut sparkling wine. Schramsberg Blanc de Blancs gained international recognition in 1972 when then President Nixon served the wine at the historic “Toast to Peace” in Beijing, China. It is one of the finest sparkling wines made in the United States. With its inviting, open-knit quality, its citrus and tropical fruit aromas, and its subtle framework of vanilla and toasty spice notes, this is simply irresistible. The 2000’s vintages scored 91-94 from Wine Spectator.
Miller Ranch Sauvignon Blanc
This Sauvignon Blanc has tremendous vibrancy and exotic aromatics. The road map to creating Miller Ranch is simple: cold, stainless steel fermentation to preserve the citrusy freshness, multiple yeast strains to enhance the aromas and enough barrel fermented Semillon to make the texture silky. Attractive aroma of ripe grapefruit and honeydew melon, with spice and floral notes. Medium body, medium acidity with juicy fruit flavors. 92 points | Wine & Spirits
MacMurray Ranch Pinot Noir
MacMurray Ranch Winery is smack in the middle of Sonoma County's cool-climate Russian River Valley. Film and TV star Fred MacMurray enjoyed the ranch as a getaway and working farm, and when his family put it up for sale in 1996 after his death, they followed his orders to sell it to a "family" who would promise to keep the land in agriculture and his fence line intact. Gallo honored his wishes and now his daughter, Kate MacMurray, a former screenwriter, is spokesperson for the winery. Gallo planted vines and the winery was born in 2000. Flavors of berries and just a hint of mushroom are detectable in the taste. Aged in new and used French, American and European oak barrels for 6 to 9 months supports aromas of raspberry, cherry, red currant and boysenberries, as well as sage and mushrooms- bringing this wine full circle in its excellence. Scores in the high 80s for 2000 vintages.
