Alouette Iselin, a Nelson-based singer of traditional and contemporary folk songs, will headline the DubHub Open Stage on June 1. Iselin will accompany herself on guitar, and she will be joined on several songs by The Solstice Sisters.

Iselin has been performing in the Monadnock region since 1972, including venues such as the famous Folkway in Peterborough, Deacon Brodie’s Tavern in Dublin, and the New Hampshire Folk Festival. She has sung with the women’s a cappella group Animaterra, with whom she has also been a featured soloist. She says she is happiest when her audience joins in on the chorus (or any other parts of a song that the audience knows). And of her own music, she writes: “The songs I write usually have to do with community and the way we support and take care of each other; that is very important to me.”

In addition to Iselin, The Solstice Sisters consist of Melanie Everard, Kim Wallach, Allison Aldrich and Heather Bower.

Doors open at 7 p.m. and the show begins at 7:30 p.m. Performers can sign up for a 10-minute set in advance (starting one week before the event) at info@dublincommunitycenter.org. The open stage is limited to nine slots and precedes the feature performers.

Admission is $5. Attendees are encouraged to bring a snack to share. Coffee and tea will be provided; people may bring their own beverages. The DubHub is located at 1123 Main St. in Dublin.
