Sally Cragin's Buttonbox Shadow Puppet Theatre draws children of all ages into her interactive, magical enactment of classic children's stories like Jack and the Beanstalk, The Goose and the Golden Egg, and Puss in Boots. You never know when the story will go in a new direction -- these are not the same 'ol same 'ol fables! The show starts at 3 pm when the Market opens, so you will want to be on time to catch every moment. http://www.buttonboxtheatre.blogspot.com/


Local singer/songwriter Gayle Craig's  lovely, authentic vocals and finely executed acoustic guitar accompaniment make her a performer you will not forget. Her style embraces country, folk, blues and pop as well as her original work. She is a returning favorite at the Westminster Farmer's Market.


Enthusiastically received at the Westminster Farmer's Market in the 2011 season, Tom diBuono performs rock n roll, southern rock, country and blues classics by artists like Bob Dylan, Jerry Jeff Walker, Bob Seger, Eric Clapton, and Van Morrison, to name a few.

SUE AND STEVE NICKERSON from The Fiddler's Gardens

perform fiddle music from the New England Contra Dance tradition -- French Canadian, Irish, and American reels, jigs, and waltzes. Sometimes Steve will treat with a vocal rendition of an Irish ballad or sea chantey.


from Ann's strong rich voice perfectly portrays the spirit of Americana in song. Traditionally she opens the Farmer's Market session with the National Anthem. Other numbers, such as America the Beautiful, are all performed a cappella.


Joe plays a contemporary blues/jazz/rock continuum that makes for a unique sound and very enjoyable listening. His main projects are Wachusett jazz, Raider Eddie and the Skeletones, the Balance Rock Band and his eponymous solo acoustic act. He combines a blend of jazz, blues, rock, funk, folk and Latin influences to create a unique style all his own, one that is instantly recognizable.


Don's music is a mix of alt-country indie rock, pop, and old jazzy and country songs by artists like The Beatles, Joe Jackson, The Band, Hank Williams, Nat King Cole to newer acts like Josh Ritter, The Decemberists and more.


The Smile Makers, the musical brain-child of Eric Donaldson and Nicole Sutka, is original music in a musical genre of its own: complex rhythmic song structures, seamless vocal harmonies and poetically crafted lyrics create songs encapsulating troubled experiences that have been reviewed as "hauntingly beautiful." The multifaceted musicians draw influences from funk, folk, ska, bluegrass, and alt-rock. While not all cute and cuddly, their softer side is well-balanced with rip-rocking tunes and roaring bass lines that will make you want to get up and dance, they will keep you excited and wanting more.


One of Westminster Farmer's Market's own, Adam Zucker takes you to the place where the farmlands of North Central Massachusetts meet Jamaica. Here are tunes from Bob Marley and the Wailers, Jimmy Cliff, and some originals from Adam, in Yankee style. It's all about peace, love, and having fun.

Adam's description: EARTH VIBEZ is the music of multi-instrumentalist and vocalist Adam Steele Zucker.  The music is a combination original compositions as well as covers, and is strongly influenced by reggae music.  The music looks at life from a spiritual perspective, and recurring themes are of community, respect for nature, and striving for a more peaceful and sustainable world.  Performances are high energy and positive vibration.
