Melanie Morin is thrilled to be coming back for her 7th time at MMF and is ecstatic to be bringing along her good friend Jason Kaplan to the stage. You may have caught Melanie performing alongside her band “The Regulars” last year on the green pavilion or memory motel.. The uniqueness of this duo is their ability to create the music they feel deeply in the moment and every performance is never the same. With blends of acoustic folk rock, bluesy jazz, and r&b infused into the music, every note resonates as Melanie’s soulful voice is heard. They perform originals as seasoned songs as well as covers that allows the listeners to experience the song in a whole new way. While Jason melodically shreds on the guitar, his talent brings this duo to another level with beatboxing skills as he uses his guitar to keep the beat as well.
