While INA MAY WOOL was playing in bars and opening concerts for Richard Thompson, Maria Muldaur and Taj Mahal in New England, BEV GRANT and the Human Condition were firing up rallies for social change all over the U.S. and under machine gun watch in El Salvador.  Together Ina May and Bev are a powerful new duo born in 2011 and known as Wool&Grant, celebrating the personal and the political with rousing, funny and poignant songs featuring beautifully constructed lyrics and rootsy, interweaving vocals and guitar parts.    

"..lots of spunk and sass!" --Garland Jeffreys

“They hit all the buttons in one powerful and gritty performance that left us inspired, defiant and whimsical all at the same time!” --Wayne MacGregor Parker

JAMES DURST, your musical host, will introduce the evening with an opening set. Work o' the Weavers founder member, James has quietly traversed the planet as a solo artist since 1965, performing for rapt audiences of all ages in all 50 states and 45 countries throughout the Americas, Europe, Scandinavia, the Middle East, Southeast Asia, in Russia, Azerbaijan, Japan, Korea and most recently, several times in India and Israel. With more than a dozen albums to his credit, he draws from a rich and ever-evolving repertoire of distinctive original and collected songs in more than two dozen languages that reflect a global perspective and underscore the interconnectedness we share with all of life. Engaging each disparate audience in a participatory journey distilled from his travels, he brings us closer to our world and each other. For more about James & his music visit

“Poets are reference points in a sometimes confusing journey through life. They tell us that life is worth living, for laughing, for loving, for singing! James Durst is a poet. It was very reassuring to experience his refreshingly honest personality and music.”
— Allen Hovey, Monday Morning, Beirut
