Amy Gallatin & Stillwaters - (Joe Kenneally Opens)
The powerhouse duo of Amy Gallatin and renowned resophonic guitarist Roger Williams20 and 40 year veterans of the New England music scene--joined forces a few years ago to explore their mutual love of country standards, served up with an acoustic treatment in the bluegrass vein. The result is a toe-tapping blend of heartfelt vocals, soaring harmonies and red-hot picking, traditional yet modern and distinct. Americana radio host Ed McKeon says: "Amy's vocals, with the power and tone of her voice, are tempered by Roger's baritone which has been sanded smooth by cigarettes and, shall we say, maturity. The song selections are perfect, the harmonies glorious, the sentiments wonderfully maudlin (like any good old country song)." The two are enhanced on mandolin and vocals by Roger's son, Berklee College of Music student JD, who--in the time-honored tradition of musical consanguinity complements his father's style perfectly--and by veteran bassist Eric Levenson, formerly with Joe Val and the New England Bluegrass Boys and later with Boston City Limits.

Caravan of Thieves
Caravan of Thieves continues to win praise for their unique blend of gypsy swing and popular music. They have shared stages with world-renowned artists such as Emmylou Harris, Dan Hicks, Glen Campbell, Nanci Griffith, The Decemberists, Keb' Mo', Tom Tom Club, John Hammond, John Jorgenson and many others. The Caravan's diverse bills are understood and appreciated by folk, pop, rock and jazz audiences of all ages. They have released four albums, and the group continues to reach new fans with each release - Bouquet (2009), Mischief Night (2010),The Funhouse (2012), and their newest release, KISS KISS (2015). Caravan of Thieves hearkens back to a day gone by, the swing era, when music and entertainment reached a creative height. Tin Pan Alley songwriters, late romantic and early 20th century classical composers, early jazz and swing musicians and vaudeville entertainers guided them to the sound they made their own. Artists such as Duke Ellington and Django Reinhardt brought an elegance and style along with a fun and free spirit and precision craftsmanship to their music, which Caravan have taken in and absorbed.

Breakfast with Total Telecom: Mobile TV: how can Telcos create value?
Consumers behaviours are changing and changing fast: 53% of all online video is now watched on mobile devices. From 2014 to 2015 in just a year millennials have increased their watching times on mobiles and tablets by over 50%. This constitutes a massive opportunity for Telcos in their fight against value erosion and also fuels competition for ownership of the household, via quad-play offers and bundles. This is not just for Telcos to adapt - all players of the TV ecosystem need to adapt, or fastly lose relevance with consumers expectations. 2016 is the year of mobile TV. Just not the same mobile TV from 10 years ago. To be genuinely Telco-Grade, mobile TV needs to be reinvented. Join Total Telecom & Netgem at this thought provoking breakfast as we discuss the redefinition of Telco-Grade Mobile TV in Barcelona on day 2 of the MWC. CONFIRMED PANEL SPEAKERS Chris Lewis - Founder, LewisInsight Bob Lamboray - CTO, Post Luxembourg Guillaume Sampic - Head of Strategy, EE Netgem -Sylvain Thevenot, MD, Netgem Europe Moderator: Rob Chambers - MD, Total Telecom Limited free places available.

Thomas grew up on a farm in central Indiana where he was constantly creating with his hands, whether it was art, music or framing a barn window broken by a fallen tree. Matthew began woodworking over 10 years ago when he discovered a stack of fine hardwoods in the haymow of the barn. Since then, he has grown into an artist focusing on fine furniture that blurs the line of sculpture. Matthew has spent time working as a bartender, web designer and a lawyer, but his passion has always been music and art which he now pursues as a full-time career at the Artisan's Asylum.

The Nerd by Larry Shue Presented by Braid Productions
Now an aspiring young architect in Terre Haute, Indiana, Willum Cubbert has often told his friends about the debt he owes to Rick Steadman, a fellow ex-GI whom he has never met but who saved his life after he was seriously wounded in Vietnam. He has written to Rick to say that, as long as he is alive, "you will have somebody on Earth who will do anything for you"so Willum is delighted when Rick shows up unexpectedly at his apartment on the night of his thirty-fourth birthday party. But his delight soon fades as it becomes apparent that Rick is a hopeless "nerd"a bumbling oaf with no social sense, little intelligence and less tact. And Rick stays on and on, his continued presence among Willum and his friends leading to one uproarious incident after another, until the normally placid Willum finds himself contemplating violencea dire development which, happily, is staved off by the surprising "twist" ending of the play.
