The photographs are about people in their environment, where form, gesture and timing come together to express what I’m seeking in most of my work, which is an attempt to document the human condition.”

What Time Is It Mr. Fox? 

Named after a Victorian children’s game,What Time Is It, Mr. Fox? delivers their own brand of smoky cabaret, neo-soul and acoustic noir, sounding something like Leonard Cohen and Amy Winehouse performing unplugged in a French cafe. The band is known for their original songs which marry rich lyrical imagery with a cinematic sensibility, exploring themes of love, spirituality, and identity.  Their song “Cold Rain” was covered by soul legend Irma Thomas on her Grammy-nominated album “Simply Grand.”

What Time Is It, Mr. Fox? features 3rian King on lead vocals, guitar and keys; Renee Dupuis on lead vocals, keys and melodica; Nathan Cohen on fiddle and trumpet; Joe Cardoza on upright bass; and Dennis Monagle on drums. In summer 2019, the band premiered their new multimedia animated musical “Medusa,” a feminist retelling of the myth in a complety sold-out run at the Charles Hayden Planetarium, Museum of Science, Boston. The team is currently adapting the play into a fully staged theater production. For music & tour dates visit

The Last Stop Has Reopened!

The Last Stop on East Main Street has recently held a ribbon cutting to mark their reopening. I went down to pick up a sandwich for Jim….he’s really been missing their pastries and sandwiches. It’s renovated on the inside and is looking great. A limited number of indoor and outdoor seating is available and I was glad to note that it was quite busy when I stopped by. The turkey sandwich has hearty bread and “real” turkey slices! Give them try!
